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

By any other name.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Yet all that is what daily we hear and read.

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

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

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

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

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

Which led us to:

 

Same story, same words, different reactions.

Fakenewser Extraordinaire is up in arms!

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

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

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

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

Here.

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

CNN finally found some Fake News they cannot get behind!

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

Compare and contrast

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

That particular murderous dictator pays attention to reality.

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

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

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

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

 

Now here’s my question.

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

And in related news…

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

Look at this

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

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

 

This one has to be tough for lefties.

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

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

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

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

 

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

I remember vomiting like this.

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

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

 

 

When is the end of the world?

May 31st!

 

Mega-Earthquake!

You have to love people who look on the bright side, but until then, we’re stuck with now.

 

See, this guy is a pessimist, I can respect that but I have much more faith in our fine media betters.

Media Reach Peak Meltdown Over Comey Memo, Russian Disclosure
Fresh pair of Trump controversies has press demanding impeachment, suggesting people will die

I’d say we ain’t seen nothing yet.

 

How can I say that? According to the NY Times,

The ceremony occurred in the Blue Room of the White House, where many senior law enforcement officials — including the Secret Service director — had gathered. Mr. Comey — who is 6 feet 8 inches tall and was wearing a dark blue suit that daytold Mr. Wittes that he tried to blend in with the blue curtains in the back of the room, in the hopes that Mr. Trump would not spot him and call him out. (emphasis me V, cuz the picture that brings to mind is just so fucking funny.)

That’s right, they’re claiming the FBI director was afraid of Trump and tried to hide from him by wearing camouflage. No, they really wrote that, I’m not making it up. I’m not that creative. I might have said he was hiding but the wearing camouflage is just that extra touch I’m not sure I have.

Seriously, if you’d just click the link you’d be more stupider but at least then you’d know that, unlike the NY Times, I’m telling the truth.

 

WTF is going on at the Free Beacon? Another Concerned Conservative bashing Trump for his twitting at twits.

The man can’t help himself. I’m speaking of course of our president, Donald Trump, whose talents at marketing and publicity brought him wealth and fame and, at the age of 70, the highest political office in the nation…

And this Concerned Conservative is On The Job!

His desire to convey an image of speed and determination has resulted in executive orders stopped by judicial intervention

You mean where they judge-shopped, found some assholes who would go against settled law because they didn’t like Trump? That judicial intervention? Jackass.

a legislature that is quarrelsome and confused.

The only confusion is trying to figure out how to avoid doing what they’ve been specifically elected to do and the only people they’re quarrelsome with are Trump and me. That fucking legislature. Idiot.

His popping off on Twitter creates scandals that should not otherwise exist, and inflames already high tensions in the capital.

He should mean responding to made-up scandals, but he doesn’t. That is what he’s talking about after all even if he doesn’t realize it.

The funniest/stupidest sentence of the link.

His firing of FBI Director James Comey, then his changing explanations of the dismissal, birthed an enemy he does not want to have and alienated a staff whose loyalty he needs.

No, he hasn’t changed his explanations, this idiot is relying on news reporrts of what Trump Said!!!!! instead of looking at what Trump said. On his Twitter Account. Which this idiot is bashing.

Alienated the staff that’s been leaking since before he took office? That staff? The staff this idiot is relying on anonymous quotes for how they feel. That staff.

As for the “birthed an enemy” idiocy, no. Are you not watching the war on him, and by extension us, by everybody? The war that started more than a year ago?

Twitter is his only way to get his message out against the cries of Minitrue, the rest of the Democratic party and Concerned Republicans. Like, apparently, the Free Beacon.

I’m not sure what’s going on, but my optimism that they were not establishment pricks is being sorely tested by a couple articles this week, that one by A Concerned Conservative and the other one where they tried to tie a GOP candidate to Obama over Bush’ forced stimulizing and bailouting.

 

For the counter-point,

The blizzard of lies and distraction blowing through Washington is not just any routine stuffstorm, but a calculated attempt to bring down a president – our president, not the establishment’s president. And more than that, it’s an attempt to ensure that we never again have the ability to disrupt the bipartisan D.C. cabal’s permanent supremacy by inserting a chief executive who refuses to kiss their collective Reid.

Yup. But I do decry Kurt’s vulgarity, nobody should be told to kiss anybody’s ‘Reid’.

That’s just fucking vulgar and low.

I saw that link a few places but I clicked from Doug Ross’ Larwyn’s Lynx, which is a good round-up place.

 

I have in my hand proof, incontrovertible PROOF!!!! that Harvard grades on a curve!!

 Trump’s coverage during his first 100 days set a new standard for negativity. Of news reports with a clear tone, negative reports outpaced positive ones by 80 percent to 20 percent.

 

80%? What news were you watching? Other than Hannity and part of Bret Baier’s show (usually with Catherine Herridge who actually does news but definitely before the panel), I’d bet Fox was more than 80% negative, as for The NYTimesWashPostCNNABCCBSNBCetc., they’re ridiculous. Didn’t you watch CNN bash him for eating ice cream?

If they meant as an average only 80% of each and every report was negative I’d be with them. Even MSNBC has to take breaths between screeches.

 

Get Out Your Squeezy Bulb Cuz Repeal And Replace Is On Deck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

GOP voters device

Apparently, the House made a mistake, probably caused by all the Turmoil Surrounding Trump, so now they’re going to have to re-vote on Repeal and Replace..the Fix For Obamacare before they can send it to the Senate where they’ll undoubtedly get right on it.  Right. On. It.! This time! This time I am so optimistic they’re going to do it right that I could just shit myself!

Republicans are using the budget “reconciliation” process to pass their health care bill, which allows them to push legislation through the Senate with a simple majority. But that depends on the bill meeting certain requirements — and one of them is that it reduces the deficit by at least $2 billion over the next decade.

The trouble is that Republicans voted on their House bill without waiting for the Congressional Budget Office, the federal agency that evaluates legislation, to finish its projections, which are expected next week.

 

Ooopsie! No, I didn’t shit myself, my fine GOP betters are shitting all over me though! So I have that going for me.

It’s funny how, for me, the whole purpose of the “GOP Win!” category had changed over the last couple years.

Well, not so much funny as infuriatingly infuriating.

 

See, this is what I’m going on about. In talking about the Iranian ‘election’,

Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani hopes Friday’s election will put him back in the hot seat for another term, enabling the 68-year-old to pursue engagement with the West.

But the moderate, who struck a deal with world powers to curb Iran’s nuclear programme in return for sanctions relief, faces a strong challenge from hardline judge Ebrahim Raisi.

He believes Rouhani has gone too far and sold out the values of Iran’s Islamic revolution to its enemies.

 

They’re pretending the vote means anything at all. The mad mullahs decide who can run and they tell the ‘winner’ (puppet) how to act. I’m surprised they haven’t run Achmed the Dead Terrorist, maybe he’s on contract with Jeff Dunham so is unavailable.

Watching the media fawn over Achmadinejihad, the new madman they’re running and the Reform Candidate!!!!!, Rouhani, as if they’re not sock-puppets is just stupid. Although… at least Iranian sock-puppets work, so they have that going for them.

Who wins will show us what Iran thinks of the West I’d think. If it’s Rouhani, they’re going to pretend to ‘engage’ the West!!!!, if it’s the other guy, they’re going to get more overtly hard-assed. Should be interesting.

 

I don’t know if it’s new, 8 billion sellers of Che shirts might disagree, but it surely is hypocritical, ignorant and annoying.

 

The more you know about Robert E. Lee the more you respect him.

 

If Trump really wants to get America laughing and our fine social, moral, political and intellectuals frothingly maddened, I have a suggestion.

He could call himself Chaitlyn.

 

 

A few years ago I wrote a totally ridiculous post about telekinetic squirrels and oyster herpes.

As Rachel Lucas says,

It is to the point that writing about the news is like writing about telekinetic squirrels.

In other words, it can’t possibly even be real, so writing about it feels creepy, pointless, and silly.

I’ve noticed that Certain People think that because I am not on American soil, I might not be aware of U.S. news. I keep telling those people that I have the internet. Sadly for me, I’m indeed following all the crazy shit going on, and the only reason I don’t blog about it six times a day is because IT IS INSANE, OH MY GOD, WHAT THE HELL?

 

I’m with you. But I’m pretty creepy, I love pointless and you have to accept the silly with the scary.

And then we got to oyster herpes, which they’re blaming on global worming instead of promiscuous oysters!

Which is a lot less ridiculous than my tubin this morning.

 

Welcome to the party pal.

Some of America’s top intelligence officials are expressing frustration at the wave of media hysteria that has greeted reports that President Trump may have shared sensitive intelligence with top Russian diplomats last week, with some saying a handful of news organizations are guilty of hyping what amounts to a nonstory.

The deuce you say! Why, it’s almost as if there’s a reason so many people are talking about all the fakenews!?!?!?!?!?

 

The way to be informed, to figure out what’s going on is try to check stuff out to see if there’s corroboration or you can just see if it accurately describes past events in making its case. (the federalist isn’t working for me so here’s a quote from vodkapundit linking it at the puppy blender’s)

In this account, Comey’s actions showcase a duplicitous, secretive schemer whose true loyalties were not to the officials to whom he reported, but to partisan Democrats like Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.). To fully understand and appreciate Jim Comey’s approach to politics, the writings and testimony of Alberto Gonzales, who served as both White House counsel and attorney general during the events in question and is intimately aware of Comey’s history of political maneuvering, is absolutely essential.

If we go by what we’ve seen of Comey I’m gonna have to say, Veeshir Vact Check: True!

The whole thing was ridiculous and is becoming dangerous as our fine betters sputter with faux outrage designed to thwart the last election they really did not like.

 

These people would be indignant if I pointed and laughed.

Alt-left advocates for net neutrality, who say they want a “free and open internet,” want to ban the Drudge Report…

Protect Our Internet claims its mission is to “keep the internet vibrant, free and equal.”

The campaign also claims net neutrality rules are “protecting our freedom to use the internet!”

 

Big Brother would be pointing and laughing at their pathetic use of orwellian language.

 

I agree with Paul Ryan!

Paul Ryan insists Trump drama isn’t affecting Congress

The question is putting the cart before the whores, Congressional Republicans are affecting the drama around Trump, by pushing it and tut-tutting most vigorously.

 

 

Via Babalu blog we see this from the Hill.

When Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos meets with President Trump at the White House on Thursday, May 18, there will be much to discuss — from the financing of the impunity deal with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) to the recent skyrocketing of the cocaine influx into the United States. Yet, Santos will undoubtedly dodge addressing his complicity in the persecution of his own and other political oppositions in our region.

First, I hope not, but how funny is it that the Hill, which can’t be assed to mention  the murderous dictator in Venezuela murderously dictating Teh Peepul, but they’ll happily bash Columbia as becoming as bad.

 

This is pretty dam cool.

They may be known as as the Golden Age of Dutch art, but with moody expressions and dark hues, these portraits don’t exactly live up to their moniker.

At least until graphic designer Olly Gibbs, 27, from London, used a face-changing app on his phone to plaster them with cheesy grins.

 

I just like them. Especially this one that looks sorta like me.

Check them all out.

 

Some times I don’t hate people.

 

I am so sick of all the Concerned and Alarmed idiocies about how firing Comey is the End of the Republic !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Let’s see if I can ignore Comey for this post.

There’s something about this vid that I really like.

I’m not sure what it is, but I just like watching that.

 

Victor Davis Hanson wonders if Trump can successfully remodel the GOP.  Trump has some help in that, but as we’ve seen, the voters have very limited power to change the gov’t in our particular form of republic. We can change the names of our ‘leaders’, but we apparently have little more power to change the policies than residents of a People’s Republic or even a Democratic People’s Republic.

And this is why

Republicans concentrate on what they like in the Trump agenda — military spending increases, energy expansion, deterrence abroad, tax and regulatory reform, and the repeal and replacement of the Affordable Care Act — and they ignore the inherent contradictions between Trumpism and their own political creed…

In this mainstream Republican view, the role of a superpower is to endure trade deficits to help its less powerful allies and keep the global order prosperous and stable. But Trump’s idea of “fair” trade trumps “free” trade.
Trump is not willing to accept a permanent Midwest Rust Belt as the price of globalization.

Yup. They think that people who want to revitalize American manufacturing are parochial and just not that bright. If we have to pay for their vision of how the world works, well, that’s what welfare is for!

At first he seemed to be defending our fine political betters, but then he noticed reality in a way that’s very intelligent (i.e. agrees with what I think)

More

Unlike doctrinaire Republicans, Trump believes that illegal immigration is a big — and bad — deal.
The Republican establishment’s employer argument is that illegal immigration ensures that the sort of work “Americans won’t do” is actually done. Or, some establishment Republicans believe that undocumented migrants who cross the southern border will one day become conservative, “family values” voters.
Not so Trumpism. It seeks to help the working class by stopping the importation of cheap labor. It believes that secure borders will restore the sanctity of law, and that the end of illegal immigration will lead to greater integration and assimilation of Latino minority groups.

Exactly. The way we integrated immigrants for 200 years is just so simplisme! The Melting Pot is racist and cannot be taught anymore! Diversity is our strength!

While having diverse opinions can be strengthening, we are balkanizing. Immigrants from previous generations are only different in the food they eat and the booze they drink in general. That includes many (most?) Mexicans, although that numbers was a higher percentage of the whole a few decades ago.

Trumpism has no illusions that there will ever be a world of liberal democracies. It seeks instead only to make sure enemies understand that any future aggression will not be worth the anticipated benefits.

Nuke The Moon! baby. We don’t need our enemies to like us, they won’t, we just need them to respect and fear us. Or just fear us. But respect makes it easier to intimidate.

As for dictators such as those in the Philippines or Egypt, Trumpism argues that it makes little sense to snub autocratic friends while cutting deals with autocratic enemies like those in Iran or Cuba.

That’s a great point, why should we be nice to the murderous dictators in China and Iran and mean to non- or less-murderous assholes elsewhere? The asshole in the Philippines isn’t killing his opposition (yet?) and the assholes in Egypt are killing their natural enemies (Christians and insufficiently similar Muslims) but leaving the rest of the world alone. Even Israel mostly.

Obama and Hillary got rid of Mubarak without a plan, Trump shouldn’t do the same. Especially as a sane plan would include us getting involved there after deposing the current dictators. We are done Nation-Building for the foreseeable future. We just don’t have the balls to do it the way we did with Japan and Germany, “Here’s your constitution and gov’t. Meet your new military governor. He’ll be leaving when we can trust you not to be murderous assholes and can trust your neighbors not to invade you and make you differently murderous assholes.”

Now we run away.

On matters of identity politics, Republicans have often sought to play down but not actively oppose racial, ethnic, and gender pressure groups. The strategy has been to not antagonize the ethnic and race industries in hopes of receiving a greater share of the minority vote.
Trump is politically incorrect.

And it’s been hilarious.

Trump just keeps making end runs around Minitrue’s Narrative and the entire We’re Better And Smarter Than You Party is just freaking out. Their weapons are useless!

So we see articles like this from Concerned Republicans Who Only Want What Is Best For The Nation!

Headline

For the love of God, delete his account

That would be Trump’s Twitter account. The one that gives our fine social, moral, political and intellectual betters such agita.

President Trump’s impulsive social media habit does little to advance his agenda, it pulls both his fans and critics into endless fights and it has created several major headaches for top White House staffers, including Sean Spicer and Kellyanne Conway.

That’s funny. Our fine betters in Minitrue, their entertainment arm, the rest of the Democratic party and most of the GOP are forced to change their actions because of Trump’s tweets. He got more action out of the country using social media than anyone since Sarah Palin put out her “Death Panel” deal.

It’s no small thing for a sitting president to appear to threaten a former FBI director. (shit, I thought I’d make it without Comeying V)

After 8 years of Obama threatening everybody from day 1, including police doing their jobs, private citizens, more private citizens,  more private citizens, more private citizens, more pr…(moving on) journalists (both real and suckophantic), our military, businesses… I know I’m leaving some people out, but Trump going after Hillary’s Head Bitch is not even in the same ballpark. Trump telling Comey not to lie about him is not just not wrong, but shows Trump has been paying attention to Comey.

It’s even worse when that same director formerly headed an investigation into the role hostile foreign agents played in the election that swept said president into power.

Still fucking that Russia Hacked The Election!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! chicken I see. Once you see that you can safely assume that the idiot who wrote it is not processing reality. And even if it was 100% Russian Hacking!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! what did they do? The Job Americans Won’t Do, i.e. report accurately on Democrat perfidy and felonyizing. Above we saw that the GOP is all about foreigners doing the Jobs Americans Won’t Do but now they’re against it. Why…. it’s almost as if they use situational ethics where who is on the receiving end decides the morality and ethics of a position!?!?!?!?!?!?!

Assholes.

A non-exhaustive recap of the past week’s crop of Comey Fake News!!!!! that was breathlessly and shriekingly reported and (occasionally) quietly corrected.

If you care. I skimmed it, I don’t really need a reminder of the lies, distortions, contortions and “anonymous” liars they have and are trotting out. The only use for it is that I think Americans are actually watching with dropped jaw as our betters freak out over something they had all, each and every fucking one, called for as little as a week ago.

Speaking of assholes from the We’re Better And Smarter Than You Party, John, I hate Veeshir, McCain!

Rep. Adam Schiff (Calif.), the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, offered high praise for Sen. John McCain on Friday, saying the Arizona Republican’s vocal criticism of President Trump marks his “finest hour.”

“I think frankly this is John McCain’s finest hour,” Schiff said on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher.”

The senior Arizona senator has also been critical of Trump’s “America first” approach to foreign policy,

Exactly. We gave the GOP victories in the last few elections because we didn’t like what the Dems were doing to our nation so what do the big shit sheep…grand poo bahs of the GOP do? Stuff that gets praise from Democrats. Asshole Democrats like Schiff.

 

Speaking of the entertainment arm of the Democratic media/entertainment political complex, The Last (conservative) Man Standing isn’t.

The cancellation by ABC of Tim Allen’s hit comedy “Last Man Standing”…

Allen’s biting and genuinely funny witticisms poking fun at all things liberal. Its humor is balanced, with the show featuring a Canadian liberal son-in-law who gets his points across…

the blue-collar sitcom was ABC’s second most watched comedy this season with 8.1 million viewers in Live +7, only behind flagship Modern Family (8,7 million). It was the third most watched ABC scripted series overall behind Grey’s Anatomy and Modern Family….(emphasis me V)

 

So they canceled one of the shows that people actually want to watch for their religion. Someone should tell them that tithing only requires 10%, not bankruptcy. Via Commonsense and Wonder.

 

The NY Post plays Name That Party! about a DA stepping back as he’s being criminally investigated.

allegations he took part in a police coverup involving former Suffolk Police Chief James Burke, who pleaded guilty in February 2016 to federal charges that he beat a man who stole a stash of porn and a sex toy from Burke’s official vehicle.

I don’t get the problem, misuse of gov’t property is a right and Dems covering up their accomplices in graft is how NY works! He looks sorta old, maybe the ass’t DA wasn’t interested in waiting for him to retire.

 

Nothing story about a Republican running for election has “irregularities” in his past, I’d say his mistake is he wasn’t high enough up in the hierarchy of the We’re Better And Smarter Than You Party to have the necessary degree of impunity.

Former South Carolina state senator Ralph Norman, who is running as the conservative candidate in the state’s fifth congressional district, sat on the board of a bank that accepted millions of dollars from the Obama administration’s 2008 bailout.

But I’m linking for the part I bolded. In 2008 Obama was not POTUS, that was Bush’ 2008 bailout.

Norman served on South Carolina Bank and Trust Financial Corporation’s board of directors in January 2009 when the bank sold $64.8 million in preferred stock and a 10-year warrant to the Treasury Department under its Capital Purchase Program, which was created as part of the federal government’s $700 billion bailout.

January, 2009 was when Obama ascended, that was Bush’s bailout.  The one he rammed down the financial world’s throat.

The chief executives of the country’s nine largest banks had no choice but to accept capital infusions from the Treasury Department in October, government documents released Wednesday have confirmed.

Obtained and released by Judicial Watch, a nonpartisan educational foundation, the documents reveal “talking points” used by then-Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson during the Oct. 13 meeting between federal officials and the executives that stressed the investments would be required “in any circumstance,” whether the banks found them appealing or not.

Notice that in 2009 to that member in good standing of our fine media betters Judicial watch was “non-partisan”. (I know I missed a couple commas in there but I’m not sure where so here are a few you can insert  ,,,)

But why is the Free Beacon obfuscating the issue of who started stimuluzing and bailouting while attacking this man as a Friend Of Obama? Is the “journalist” just an idiot or is there some sort of agenda in play?

Ralph Norman, who is running as the conservative candidate in the state’s fifth congressional district,

Are they joining the We’re Better And Smarter Than You Party or is it just that opinionator or are they angry that he’s not a conservative or some other, undisclosed, reason?

Because I’ll tell you what, taking money you’re forced to take by the POTUS from your party is not necessarily a sign that you’re not conservative.

Just something that confused me.

 

This is very messed up. In a story about a Gorsuch dissent (he was against the arrest), we see this.

The New Mexico incident began in 2011 when the student, known only as F.M. in court papers, kept interrupting his physical education class with fake burps. The teacher sent him into the hallway, where he continued burping and laughing as he leaned into the classroom entrance. (emphasis me V)

The teacher called for assistance on her school radio, and soon Arthur Acosta, a police officer assigned to the school, arrived in the hallway, according to court documents.

Acosta took the boy to the school’s office, then placed him under arrest for violating a New Mexico law that prohibits anyone from disrupting the education process. Acosta handcuffed the student and took him to the juvenile detention center, where the boy stayed about an hour until he was picked up…

I think it’s ridiculous that the kid was arrested, expel him if he’s that disrespectfully disruptive, but notice a few things.

There were cops patrolling the school, that’s not often done in schools where it’s not necessary. Maybe the cop knew the kid from previous interactions. Judging from what happened, I’m gonna assume this choir boy/orphanage-volunteer had previously had such disrespectful and disruptive episodes.

Also think about what he was doing.

Acosta’s lawyer says the criminal act was the boy’s “interference with the educational process, not the act of burping.”

Sure, it was burping and laughing, but he was showing a complete lack of respect for the teacher, the other students and the whole concept of school. Further, his actions showed that he was utterly unafraid of any repercussions. From my experience, I’m gonna assume calling the parents would not be a useful exercise.

There are a lot of kids like that, I’m not just saying that just from my teaching experience but from relatives’ kids and their friends.

School cannot work unless there’s respect flowing both ways. Respect for others is sorely lacking in today’s culture.

 

Let’s Tolerance!

First up, we have this.

A Detroit-area high school is holding an all-girls prom

That’s not a prom. Jebus. How can you have a prom without prom-dates? Here’s the Tolerance part.

to create a comfortable and safe environment for girls who cannot attend the traditional co-ed prom for cultural reasons.

So in other words, the girls’ owners (male relatives) would beat them, honor-kill them, cut off their noses or just throw acid in their faces if they act like American girls.

I hate people sometimes. You really should not cater to that shit.

Now, for a little palate-washer, let’s look at the State of American Heavy Metal! They’re bad ass, they won’t cave to intolerant religious assholes who are intolerant!

Megadeth agreed to cut songs that were potentially “offensive” to Muslims after the Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party (PAS) Youth group voiced its objection to them touring the country.

Oh.

I wish to offend no one here. We cut songs for China.”

Really? Megadeth was out manlied by Elton John?

Chinese authorities have hardened their line on foreign musicians, after Elton John infuriated them by dedicating a performance to outspoken artist and activist Ai Weiwei, according to industry sources. Police arrived to interview the singer shortly after he announced that the performance, which took place in Beijing last November, was dedicated “to the spirit and talent of Ai Weiwei”

So sad.

When people try to censor your art, you tell them to fuck off or you just do your deal.

However, he (Jeff Dunham V) was informed by the Ministry of Information, Communication and Culture that Achmed should not be mentioned or brought on to the show..

Dunham cleverly side-stepped the issue by introducing a new character; “Who knew that Achmed had a French cousin — Jacques, the dead French terrorist?” he says. “It was Achmed with a beret and mustache, and the audience loved it, thankfully. But I was a bit frightened there, too. I thought, ‘Will they drag me off the stage and make an example of me?’ I honestly thought that was a possibility, as you never know how strict and real these laws are.”

So in other words, a flamingly flamboyent homosexual musician, second only to Liberace in his flamboyence, flaming and homosexuality, and a guy who plays with dolls have more balls than Megadeth!

Still say 80s music has heart and soul?

This made me laugh when I saw it. I’d like to see the entire show, but even his specials only show bits and pieces.

That’s how you do it.

 

Relatedly, Trump appoints a Frenchman, Vladimierre Poutin, as head of the FBI!

Sometimes reality is less funny than fantasy.

 

And then there are times like this.

A judge set bail Friday for an Elkhorn man accused of hiring prostitutes to bare their breasts and strip on his neighbor’s porch

My neighbors just call the cops on me.

Not sure why the cops got involved this time though, it seems to me a ‘Thank You’ was in order.

 

I thought hockey players were exempt from this shit.

Islanders goalie Thomas Greiss has apologized after he reportedly caused an outrage in Germany when it was discovered that he “liked” an Instagram post comparing Hillary Clinton to Adolf Hitler.

Although the way they’ve been trying to Stop Hockey’s Ultra-Violent Ways!!!!!!!!!!!! I should have figured SJW’s were paying attention.

One thing, I wonder if Hillary shaves anything like a Hitler mustache.

*smack*

Sorry, but if I had warned you you wouldn’t have read that and cringed.

The funniest thing I’ve heard hockey announcers say was when Montreal made Pierre Turgeon captain cuz he’s French-Canadian and a NY Islanders announcer said, “That’s ridiculous. If that were the case, the Islanders would have to have a Jew as captain!

The next day I waited to see but nobody freaked out. I figured they were still exempt, but apparently the forces of Tolerance And Love have decided that every aspect of our lives needs to be Toleranced, Loved and Mostly-Peaced.

 

 

I found an inside look at one of the top journalists at the Wash Post!

 

They’re obviously very busy, that must be why their lies and Fake News are so pathetic.

No, really. They do. And they take themselves seriously! Chuck Schumer can literally say anything and expect people to believe him and forget what he said literally the day before.

 

Speaking of which, let’s Comey!

The AP goes around the bend over Comey!

Another false, overheated assertion. Trump didn’t challenge any institutions, he fired an officer of the federal government who served at his pleasure. The AP needs to get a grip.

Pace goes on to quote seven politicians and scholars, every single one of whom criticizes Comey’s firing, often in hysterical terms. That isn’t balanced reporting, that is “analysis.”

If you’re a blogger, it would pay to have a macro for the bolded part.

 

I do have to wonder if Trump does this stuff on purpose just to make them froth or if it’s just a bonus.

 

 

The NY Post just has to keep Never Trumping.

New executive order will target Trump’s unsubstantiated voter fraud claims

Here we have the NY Post say this

White House advisor Stephen Miller doubled down on President Trump’s unsubstantiated claims that thousands of voters were bused from Massachusetts to New Hampshire in November to cost him the win.

And here we have an article about those Unsubstantiated claims.

While 458 potentially fraudulent votes aren’t enough to have changed the outcome of either race, the questionable votes prompted an investigation by the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office and legislation to reform the state’s same-day voter registration.

 

So they found 458 shady votes in the initial check, I wonder how many a real investigation would find?

This one’s my favorite.

Now Mayor de Blasio’s joined the chorus calling for the head of Board of Elections Commissioner Alan Schulkin — simply for privately (he thought) speaking his mind about voter fraud.

After a few drinks — and to an undercover reporter for James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas.

Yes, Schulkin’s remarks are embarrassing to his fellow Democrats, who inevitably insist that voter fraud is a myth.

Well, Democrats and the NY Post.

So what did dude say? They make you click through three articles to get to the one with the quote.

The Manhattan Democratic representative on the city’s Board of Elections was caught on a secret video slamming Mayor Bill de Blasio’s municipal ID program as contributing to “all kinds of fraud” — including at the polls.

“He gave out ID cards, de Blasio. That’s in lieu of a driver’s license, but you can use it for anything,” Commissioner Alan Schulkin said in the undercover video recorded by a muckraker for conservative nonprofit Project Veritas.

“But they didn’t vet people to see who they really are. Anybody can go in there and say, ‘I am Joe Smith, I want an ID card,’ ” he said in the bombshell tape.

“It’s absurd. There is a lot of fraud. Not just voter fraud, all kinds of fraud . . . This is why I get more conservative as I get older.”

Cuz voter fraud is Unsubstantiated!!!!! and Trumps’s a poopy-head.

They have a narrative and the NY Post, and the rest of all the major media outlets, just have to keep lying about Trump no matter how utterly foolish and idiotic they appear.

Cuz they’re Elite! and Trump just does not meet their standard standard.

 

They paid the danegeld, guess what they’re stuck with?

University of California Santa Cruz administrators recently agreed to meet to all four demands lodged by a black student group who commandeered a campus building and would not leave until their conditions were met.

But in addition to the four initial stipulations, the group made three other demands to the university, and it has warned UC Santa Cruz that it has four months to comply with these demands or “more Reclamations” will result.

Well, not danes, but still.

 

Now why didn’t we think of this?

We know this because Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland has now explained that the Liberals spent $1,877.24 of our money on 14 life-size cardboard cuts-out of Justin Trudeau for use in Canadian diplomatic missions around the world, “to champion the values that Canadians hold dear”.

We could replace Congress with standees and just play audio of them saying, “Trump is illegal!” or “American voters Suck!!!”

Make America Great Again! Require All Congresscritters  To Be Replaced with Cardboard Cut-Outs!

 

Via Kahr 40, I think Japan is mobilizing for war!

 

 

Watch Out Norks and your Murderous Commie Chinese Masters!

 

And throwing fish at me to get me.

Former acting Attorney General Sally Yates will testify in front of a Senate subcommittee Monday about what and when she told the Trump White House in regard to Michael Flynn’s ties to Russia.

Why?

Why isn’t Lerner testifying about what the Obama White House told her in regards to her ties to fascism?

Why aren’t they going after actual lawlessness instead of trying to keep this non-story in the new…..

Oh right. The We’re Better And Smarter Than You Party hates Trump almost as much as they hate me.

 

So I saw this headline

Lawsuit Threatens Congressional Tool…

And I thought, “Finally! McCain or Graham are going to get what they deserve!”

But the tool they were talking about was neither McCain nor Graham!?!?!?! It wasn’t even McConnell!

seeking to strike down the Congressional Review Act

Wrong tool!  There are some right over there (points at Congress) that would make America Great Again if we got rid of them.

 

If you need some more links about Obama’s wiretapping of Trump, click here.

Not sure why you’d bother trying to convince anybody of reality if they don’t remember watching it happen (Here are leaked transcripts of wiretaps of Trump’s peeps!!!… No! Obama did not wiretap Trump’s peeps!), then showing them more proof surely won’t do any good. YMMV.

 

Birds of a feather tell Teh Peepul to fuck off together!

Mayor de Blasio is so intent on going to the mat defending Correction Commissioner Joseph Ponte’s blatant abuse of a city vehicle and frequent absences from work that he’s now trashing his own investigators for blowing the whistle…

As if professional investigators don’t know how to, you know, investigate.

As for the DOI probe that uncovered the abuse by Ponte and his subordinates: That’s just “their views,” said de Blasio.

How dare you go after one of his peeps? Have you no sense of exactly how corrupt NY is supposed to be? I mean, it’s not as if it’s a Republican trying to stop Democratic priorities!

 

Who teaches students that words are violence? While the plural of anecdote is not data, I’ve seen variations on this in most schools in the greater Phoenix area

It’s a hate-crime to say the bit about words never hurting you unless you let them.

 

I’m gonna have to disagree.

Another Drink Won’t Help

And then he talks about our fine media betters refusing to say the word, “socialism” or “murderous dictator” when discussing Venezuela.

The growing economic crisis (was) fueled by low prices for oil, the country’s main export; a drought that has crippled Venezuela’s ability to generate hydroelectric power; and a long decline in manufacturing and agricultural production.” – IBD

Another drink is about all you can do for those poor bastards.

 

FIFA is working on kicking Israel out! I could click to find out why, but seriously, why bother? I’m sure it has something to do with Palestinians and apartheid and premeditated jewishness. I was going to list members, but once I got past “Palestine” and Syria on my way to Afghanistan, Iran and….I got tired.

Why bother? Just because FIFA is perfectly okay with murderous dictatorships, places with actual, “bill-of-sale” slavery and that treat women like property, I got depressed.

And much of our country and most of the world have no idea why I have a problem with this. Except that I’m a racist hater.

 

I did my taxes late this year and I was broke in April so I didn’t do BAG day and didn’t even mention it. I’m a little embarrassed about that.

But you know what doesn’t suck?

Chiappa 1887 Mare’s Leg.

Gauge, 12 Gauge!

It’s all about useless but also all about teh fun.

in a real death waltz between what’s flesh and what’s fantasy. (spoiler alert: fantasy is ahead on points)

Time to take our stand, our fine betters are busily making sure we live in jungleland.

An internal FBI investigation into the spike of attacks on law enforcement has determined that revenge, inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, the media’s assault on police shootings, and criticism from politicians, is the what motivates a “majority” of those targeting cops.

“Law enforcement officials believe that defiance and hostility displayed by assailants toward law enforcement appears to be the new norm,”

We’ve been watching millennia of progress wiped out in education and now in civil society we’re basically at the “Attack The Other!!!!” phase in evolution.

Filling in the for the neanderthals is……us!

Detailing when fantasy conflicts with flesh in two graphics and a reminder.

We all saw in Berkeley what happens when fantasy meets reality.

That flag should read, “We Will Be Trod!”

 

 

GOP voters device

Crap. I got out my squeezy bulb and I didn’t even need it!?!?

Susan Rice has denied a request to testify in front a Senate judiciary subcommittee next week on Russian interference in the U.S. presidential election.

Oh, she declined the honor? Obviously there’s nothing Congress can do now! I mean, if she says she’s not gonna testify their hands are tied!

 

I absolutely do not understand why the puppy blender doesn’t seem to agree with this sentiment.

What with the blatant fake-newsing and pathetic lies, they’re doing as much to ensure Trump is re-elected as they ever did for Obama.

 

Via Say Uncle we see the St. Louis Post-Dispatch is Dedicated To Diversity!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Stacy Washington’s column will no longer appear in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Her active promotional activities and professional association with the National Rifle Association represented an unacceptable conflict of interest

Well, not so much diversity as uniformity of thought.

Sorry for any confusion due to thinking that the state of journalism is anything but “Screw You America.”

Read the comments, they’re funny.

Interesting! I was informed of Stacy’s NRA membership last year, WHEN THE POST- DISPATCH INTRODUCED STACY! Guess that slipped by you, huh?

Way to increase your readership

 

That’s not their priority. If you think of it as “tithing”, things make much more sense.

 

Trump Is Doing Away With The Obama Brand!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

There’s so much funny with that article.

First, they say it like it’s a bad thing.

But the apparent retiring of the title associated with the Obama era is still seen by some as an attempt to eradicate anything linked to the previous administration.

We wish.

Second, this

Some outside observers argue that Trump could be trying to shore up his own support by taking a scythe to Obama-era policies and programs.

Yeah, see…that’s why he was elected so instead of “shore up his own support” you minitrue assholes could have written, “keep his campaign promises” but then the Hill would have to acknowledge reality.

Third,

Jen Psaki, Obama’s former communications director, said it was “surprising and politically stupid

 

And she’s an expert on surprisingly stupid! The one person in the Obama admin who could make Marie Harf look semi-intelligent.

Fourth

The new president’s now-infamous tweets making the unsupported allegation that Obama wiretapped Trump Tower

Still fucking that “unsupported” chicken.

Fifth

While Trump defenders argue that there is nothing unusual about a new president of one party moving in a sharply different direction from his predecessor, voices within the Obama camp characterize the Trump approach as petty,

No really. They quoted Obama people as calling someone, anyone, ‘petty’. He of the “barrycades”, the casual, ‘scratching my nose with my middle finger’ childishness,

They let Obama’s peeps call someone, anyone, “petty”. Obama and his entire admin should be barred from calling anybody ‘petty’. Even Richard Petty.

Sixth, and this one’s on Trump (or Tillerson I guess)

…State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert…

Heather Nauert? Doesn’t she have some J-school projects to do so she can pretend she’s a journalist?

Did someone make a rule that State spokespersons are supposed to 30 year old cute nitwits?

Seventh!

Attacking Obama keeps people’s focus away from the first 100 days of non-accomplishment.”

Other chicken minitrue is fucking. “Trump hasn’t done anything in his first 100 days!!!!! Except try to undo Obama’s Legacy!!!! which has nothing to do with why he was elected so even though we’re whining about him undoing Obama’s Legacy that doesn’t mean he’s accomplished anything!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

I’m sure I’ve missed some funny, but I’m ODing on schadenfreude.

 

Coupla Dave Barry links.

 

Oh man, that ain’t right.

We’re sorry to spread the news to Skippy fans: the peanut butter — both the crunchy and smooth version — is no longer available in Canada.

If only I were allowed in Canada, I can see a decent opportunity there. This makes me laugh, I wonder if it’s true.

We’re a vast country with only 36 million people. The distribution costs are really high,” Charlebois said, adding that the extra cost of required French labelling may have also been a deterrent.(emphasis me V)

Funintended consequences always bite you in the nut(s).

 

A bet: As the gov’t is doing this, Canadians are scouring their country for these

Liquor authorities across Canada are recalling a brand of gin that may contain almost twice as much alcohol as claimed on the bottle.

Does it make you go blind? No? There’s not too much alcohol in it.

That’s how you tell.

 

The world is sorely lacking in people who say, “You know. Maybe that isn’t such a good idea.”

WTF? While I applaud that they accept that girls are where cooties come from, they seem to take it too far.

 

Mae govannen vanima!

Wanna see my flet?

 

I’m a little disappointed, nobody made fun of my “ohm i” pun.

Listen, how am I going to keep consistently hitting the lowest rung of the humor ladder if I don’t get encouragement?

Oh…..

Bastids!
