I saw the clip of this earlier and this is what Clintons do. So she did have some effect at State.

Quote the Free Beacon.

State Department spokesman Mark Toner said Monday that top Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin was “fully vetted” before being cleared to work at the State Department

But that’s not what he said.

He said, paraphrasingly, that he knew how it works, how it worked in his case, and she ‘would have been fully vetted’.  He never actually admitted any knowledge, he just said that’s how it works.

See, he didn’t say she was vetted but everybody heard that she was. That lets Minitrue know how to cover the story. “The GOP is letting their Islamophobia loose!”

Very Clintonian.

The way he said that makes me think she had no security clearance.

If so the normal arc would be someone finding out, like Drudge or Breitbart, Minitrue covering it up, Hillary! telling ever changing lies upon each revelation culminating in…..Trump said we need to deport black lives matter protesters to Liberia!


Speaking of people just noticing stuff that’s been going on for decades, Stephen Hayes was on the Special Report panel talking about the media ‘covering’ Hillary!’s email felonies when he said something like, “They’re making it all about the GOP. It’s not about the GOP, it’s about her emails!”


Yeah, that’s how they work. Jeez, where has he been that he’s just noticing this? That’s how every Dem scandal is covered(up). Unless they’re all about “sex”, which those GOP prudes are way too interested in.


We’re reliving the worst parts of the 90s with the added attraction of having lost the Cold War and in the remake, Newt Gingrich sucks.

Trump must be doing pretty well, they’re pulling this out too early in my opinion. People are going to be pretty damn tired of the pace of freaking out they’re doing right now.

So as we’re still talking about Hillary!’s felonious handling of classified material, and noticing that she was talking about an Iranian guy in unsecured emails around when he was executed, the We’re Better And Smarter Than You Party is bringing out 50 GOP SECURITY OFFICIALS!!!!! to say

calling him an unqualified choice who would put the nation at risk.

“None of us will vote for Donald Trump,” the officials wrote. “Most fundamentally, Mr. Trump lacks the character, values, and experience to be President.”



That’s lets The NYTIMESWASHPOSTCNNABCCBSNBCetc. counter the stuff about Hillary!.

I hadn’t seen this, so I’m gonna assume not many people are covering it, but Trump’s response is actually pretty darn awesome.

The names on this letter are the ones the American people should look to for answers on why the world is a mess, and we thank them for coming forward so everyone in the country knows who deserves the blame for making the world such a dangerous place,” he wrote.

Which leads me to what made me write this.

Trump said Second Amendment people could stop Hillary! so Minitrue IS ON THE JOB!!!!!!

CNN was where I saw them talking about it so I’m using their agitprop.

Donald Trump set off a fierce new controversy

Translation: We’re trying to push this controversy.

with remarks about the right to bear arms that were interpreted by many as a threat of violence against Hillary Clinton.


We all know he was talking about in the voting booth, but Minitrue is out for blood and going fucking insane. I thought the W Bush, Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld drove them nuts, but they are foaming at the mouth.

Case in point

The former head of the CIA, retired Gen. Michael Hayden, …If someone else had said that said outside the hall, he’d be in the back of a police wagon now with the Secret Service questioning him.”

Actually, I believe him, but that has nothing to do with the statement and much more to say about the destruction of the rule of law in America. Unambiguous threats against Bush were A-OK, but this bullshit would get me or you in big trouble.

This sums up one of the worst parts about the 21st century

Hayden added: “You’re not just responsible for what you say. You are responsible for what people hear.”

Because too many people believe that. You know, only when it’s pushed against enemies of Minitrue.

The Beatles were not responsible for Charles Manson and video games are not responsible for violence but this obvious comment about people voting is beyond the pale, right former head of the CIA, retired Gen. Michael Hayden?

Love this

That was more than a speed bump. That is actually a very arresting comment. It suggests either a very bad taste with reference to political assassination and an attempt at humor or an incredible insensitivity


Ummmmm, no. It was a comment on people voting, however, it does give ideologues like him the opportunity to foam at the mouth and isn’t that what really matters?



Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Connecticut, who supports increased gun control measures, tweeted: “Don’t treat this as a political misstep. It’s an assassination threat, seriously upping the possibility of a national tragedy & crisis.”

Wait, you mean a man sho’s willing to dance in the blood of children before it’s dried to advance his agenda was ready to give you a nice juicy quote when you called him and told him about this opportunity Xer Journalist?

Color me utterly unsurprised.


They give Pence and the NRA a chance to rebut the first few attacks, then they go right back to anti-Trump and Hillary! supporters for some more quotes.

Fauxcahontas was happy to tweet in


makes death threats because he’s a pathetic coward who can’t handle the fact that he’s losing to a girl,” she said.

Hillary! has a vagina you know. I’d really rather not think about it or whether it’s slo…..I can’t finish that. (Shudder)

Move-on is all about helping Teh GOP

 called on every Republican up and down the ballot to repudiate Trump over his remark.

I would laugh at that more if I didn’t believe that John McCain and Lyndsey Graham would listen.
little lord graham


One more thing about Trump and why I’ve started to root for him.

I don’t know what the hell he’s going to do, but he does describe reality when he speaks, I don’t have to change the channel because I’m furious at the blatant lies the ‘journalist’ lets pols spew.

Case in point,

Trump has repeatedly suggested that Clinton will “abolish” the Second Amendment.
The former secretary of state has never called for the abolition of gun rights, but has called for additional gun regulations and safety checks to reduce the number of deadly gun shootings in the US.


Trump is accurately noticing reality while Minitrue is trying to obfuscate it (one of their jobs).

Hillary! will try to abolish the Second Amendment or at least restrict it as much as possible, like huge ammo taxes and letting law suits against go against gun manufacturers for people committing crimes, shit like that. With the chance of a few Supreme Court justices, we would be boned.

Accurately recognizing problems is the first step in solving them. We need to reduce regulations and the reach of bureaucrats because we’re being strangled at every step.

He was in business and hopefully realizes that most people can’t buy politicians to get stuff done.


Hazzard Flag

Growing up as poor white Yankee trash, my first exposure to the Confederate battle flag was the Dukes of Hazzard.

Of course, as a youngster, I had no idea the significance of the flag, or the appellation “General Lee”. I just saw some dudes -who were clearly the good guys- sticking it to the Powers That Be…


…and driving an impossibly awesome car (-with a horn that played “Dixie” no less).

(Alas, I was also too young to appreciate the tremendous… talent that Catherine Bach brought to the show.)

And it is in this gallantly rebellious spirit that I know many view the Southern Cross. As Ace put it, it often means “fuck you”.


We still need a “fuck you” sign. It’s a shame that the rebel flag carries so much baggage.

I guess there’s Gadsden…

Even when stipulated that less revenues will come in, he wants higher taxes for purposes of “fairness”.

In attempting to write about the Michael Brown, Eric Garner, and Tamir Rice incidents, the apparent futility of conservative blogging has once again caused me overwhelming despair.

As it concerns the death-by-cop incidents, the post-factual nature of our political discourse becomes palpable. “Hands up, don’t shoot!” is an utter fabrication, exposed as a lie by overwhelming physical evidence and the preponderance of eye-witness testimony, such that no charges were brought by a grand jury against the officer.

There’s much more room for concern in the Garner and Rice cases, but the public backlash in these three cases seems inversely proportionate to the evidence of police wrongdoing. (How many of you are going to Google “Tamir Rice” now?) But the incident drawing the most ire, the Michael Brown shooting, is the one with the least genuine merit – nil by my reckoning.

Presented with the futility of attempting to dislodge an erroneous belief from the public consciousness, one recalls the many other instances of valiant but Sisyphean work by conservative and libertarian bloggers. Whether it is the exposure of the IRS criminality, or the Gosnell little abortion shop of horrors, or the Jonathan Gruber recordings, nothing seems to stick or matter. Obama’s even back to funding ACORN as health insurance navigators.

I will from time to time find cause to write, but for now I expect the sparseness of my motivation to continue. In a world where facts don’t matter, there’s little reason to discuss facts.

Ace links to a Federalist post about atheists (and agnostics) being able to be conservatives.

Let me say that I am agnostic. I think an atheist says, “There is no God, god or gods.” while I say, “I don’t know.”

Maybe there is a God or god or gods, who knows? I will say that, in my opinion, maybe.

But then we get to which God, god or gods? As Heinlein said, all of them have to go in the hat. Sorry if that pisses you off, but that’s the way I see it.

Maybe Zeus is pissed off we’re not sacrificing white bulls to him or Huitzilipochti is pissed off we’re not sacrificing people, Baal has to be partly happy with our abortion rate (especially partial-birth abortion), but we’re not exactly sacrificing babies to him so his happiness is qualified.

Personally, I’m rooting for a Jonathan Livingston Seagull sort of deal of going up, sideways or down the ladder.

A quote from the Federalist link

My point is not just that it is possible to offer a secular defense of free markets and liberty and the moral values that support them. My point that is these arguments have a power to persuade that cannot be matched just by quoting chapter and verse from the Bible.


I’ve been Troll for a Day a number of times because I try to explain that I can be in favor of civilization without believing in God.

Take something simple like traffic.

A lane ends on the highway, so what happens? If you’re in any metropolitan region, most people line up but a bunch of assholes have to be first so they screw the whole thing up.

If everybody worked together we’d all go through more quickly, the people being assholes screw it up for not just the polite people but for all the assholes behind them as they force traffic down to a crawl.

Civilization is a compilation of like situations, if we all work together, in a Christian manner, then life is better for all of us.

You do not need to believe in God to realize that or to believe that Jesus was probably the very best, most wise western philosopher ever (Bush should not have taken shit over that, he was right in my opinion), certainly the one whose philosophy has led to the best outcome for the most people.

Besides, many of the worst, non-commie, things we’ve done to each other is in service to a religion. There are few, non-commie, things more scary than a despot who thinks he’s doing God’s will. I will also say that communism/socialism/nannarchism is a religion without a god. Today’s leftism is a religion with a god, Gaia, and we’ve pissed her off by being imprius so…global worming.


My point, if we stop fucking with each other, life is better for everybody. It’s that simple.

You do not need a religion to believe that, as Ace says, you merely need to look at empirical evidence, logic and results.

It should be noted, of course, that religious people do not rely exclusively on religious precepts to make their cases. They, too, point to observable evidence and make secular (math-based, policy outcome based) arguments.


Preach it brother.

I’ll tell you what sup.

Life imitates Camus!

A Chinese city has been sealed off and 151 people have been placed in quarantine since last week after a man died of bubonic plague


Ugh.  These are people who have less regard for life than French colonizers, that’s not going to end well.


So not only is Tsar Putin I’s state media (they’re like MSNBC  and CNN but they have to be forced to lie for their Dear Leader) lying ridiculously about his Cossacks shooting down a civilian plane, but now he’s sick and tired of Teh Peepul acting all upset and stuff.

Russian President Vladimir Putin signed several laws on July 22, increasing liability for separatism and violation of regulations for holding rallies.


I just hope Obama does not get any ideas on that.

You have to like the bit about cracking down on “calls for separatism” as he’s fomenting separatism in other countries. That’s a nice touch.

Speaking of evil empires,

Identifying Backdoors, Attack Points, and Surveillance Mechanisms in iOS Devices… In his talk Zdziarski demonstrates “a number of undocumented high-value forensic services running on every iOS device” and “suspicious design omissions in iOS that make collection easier.”

So what do you think, murderous, commie, Chinese dictators having their slaves put it in or just Apple being Apple?

They’ve both been watching Google pretty closely after all so that’s a tough call.


A rare disagreement between Veeshir and Israel.

Israeli envy says country deserves Nobel Prize for “restraint”

Really? You people want to be grouped with the Arafish, Kofi, What-Genocide?, Annan and Obama? I respect Israel far too much to want that to happen.

You’ve seen that commercial about the “Framily Plan” where Gordahn shows up uninvited? Well, in real life his name is J. Effin Kerry.

Michael Oren, who until recently served as Israel’s ambassador in Washington, said Monday that US envoy John Kerry was coming to the region despite Sunday’s hot-mic incident making it clear that he had not been invited.

Okay, that’s funny and shows that, despite the faux pas on the Nobel, Israel still has its head on straight.

I wonder if that had something to do with the Obama admin canceling flights to Israel? He’s petty enough for that so…


This one is pretty darn funny too.

A conservative of color had the unmitigated gall to show up to a Democratic Front Group’s gathering (NAACP edition) and was rightly attacked in a vicious manner, but that’s just expected and not funny.

This quote from the article is what’s funny.

*Note: FreedomWorks is not funded by the Koch brothers.

Heh. disassociating themselves from an evil empire is kinda funny.


Geez, I just want to send the “children”, their parents and gang-banger friends back to their own countries, but Pelosi apparently wants us to crucify them.  She wants us to treat them like Jesus.

Hard core but probably a little overreactive.


I don’t get the problem with this.

Stoners in Colorado are using their EBT cards (not food stamps, just regular welfare) at pot dispensaries.

If it’s the Most Evil Thing In The World to drug test welfare recipients and pot is legal, why should anybody have any problem with this?


I haven’t seen this link any where for a long time so I’ll post it.

If you’re so inclined, these guys deliver pizzas to IDF soldiers on the frontline. Pizza for the IDF you can attach a message if you’re so inclined. .

So dat’s what sup.
