It’s weird out there, usually I can spot a theme each day but today I can’t, not sure if it’s me or if it’s just that things are so all over the place.

Let’s start with You Will Be Made To Care!

Here we have NJ xesplaining to teens.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie signed legislation Friday requiring the state to give guidance to public schools about policies for transgender students, including blocking the schools from forcing the students from using bathrooms that conflict with their gender identities.

I’m sure HS students are mature enough to treat this with the respect and decorum it deserves.

I look forward to Dress Thursday where the football players all wear dresses to use the girl’s bathroom and locker room every Thursday and it will be a hate-crime if anybody tries to stop them.

I’m surprised that’s in NJ, sure they’re solidly Democrat but I figured that was more a corruption thing than a lefty thing. It’s funny that the GOP governor signed that into law. He’s a perfect northeast Republican in the mold of Susan Collins (R-Maine) and John McCain (R-DC).

Which reinforces Harvey’s point that we’re the RINOs, not them.

I think I’m actually the RINO.

I say that because I’m finding more and more that the Republicans aren’t the conservatives. Being a conservative and aligning yourself with a Republican doesn’t make Republicans conservative. It just means you’re aligning with the least liberal, least horrible of the viable options.

I don’t really want to take up the label “RINO” because of what it has represented. But, the reality is, the Republican Party isn’t a bunch of conservatives. But, a bunch of conservatives vote for the Republicans.

Yup.

 

I’m not surprised about Minnesota though.

A recently approved Minnesota Department of Education “toolkit” instructs schools to isolate students who are concerned about sharing bathrooms and locker rooms with transgender students.

Room 101 For You!

I will say I’d bet that makes a lot of students see exactly how morally and intellectually bankrupt lefties are when they’re forced to believe what their betters demand.

 

I used to tutor HS kids in math because AZ students had to pass the AIMS test. It was HS math, heavy on algebra and geometry.

They canceled it because so many kids could not graduate HS because they couldn’t pass it. It was depressing trying to teach kids how to do math when they used their fingers to add 5 to 17 and a calculator to multiply 10*7.

In today’s exciting episode, CA has gone AZ one better.

The chancellor of the California community college system has stated that institutions’ algebra requirements are “the biggest barrier” for “underemployed or unemployed Americans,” and as such is … a civil rights issue.

So you can have a college degree without algebra. Sigh. I’m sure that’ll make people happy to hire CA graduates.

It’s not a civil rights issue, it’s a community issue. Too many communities in our nation do not prize education. It’s absolutely not a “discrimination” deal or else Jewish people would have the same problems.

This is the shit that will get Trump’s supporters pissed off.

First, we have the State Dept derping.

Officials in the Trump administration’s State Department are standing by a recent report criticized by Congress that blamed Israel for terror attacks and claimed Palestinians rarely incite violence, telling the Washington Free Beacon that it remains unclear why terrorists engage in violent acts.

Trump and Tillerson should have slapped that shit down publicly, loudly and rudely. But they didn’t.

There’s a petition at the White House calling for an end to the gov’t stealing property from people not convicted of a crime.

 

If the media really wanted to Get Trump they’d hit him for shit like that, but they don’t understand how anybody could be upset about being evenhanded between murderous terrorists and a liberal democracy  or against the gov’t Taking Money From Criminals (who haven’t been convicted of a crime) so they’re busy lying about him.

 

Here we see believing lefty fantasies has immediate consequences.

The meltdown in Venezuela’s currency is deepening as a crippling dollar shortage and a threat of oil sanctions take their toll on the economy. The black-market rate for the bolivar traded weaker than 8,700 per dollar for the first time, according to dolartoday.com on Friday, compared with the official rate of around 10 and a more widely used alternative rate of 2,757.

What does that mean for investors?

That’s creating an illusion for foreigners observing the country’s stock market, which appears to be valued at $2.57 trillion — bigger than Germany’s, France’s, India’s or Canada’s — but is worth only $3 billion based on the black-market rate.

Like China, if you believe the official numbers you will be boned.

That’s about perfect.

 

Arguing With Headlines!!!!

EU Indecision Worsens Italy’s Migrant Crisis

There’s a difference between “indecision” and “slowrolling because you want the current system to stay in place.”

 

But we’ve been told that Muslim women would choose the Islamic body sack for women!!!! For Freedom!!!!!

Women burn burqas and men shave beards to celebrate liberation from Isis in Syria

It’s funny how often that’s the first thing women do when freed from subjugation. Although forcing the women to shave their beards is a little far.

 

I was into Spicer at first but the questions go so ridiculous that the press conferences got very boring so I won’t miss him much. I will miss Sean Spicier.

He notices reality in the funniest way.

Faceblock can’t be assed to stop people calling for death to Trump and Republicans or ISIS but attack a preferred group and you’re gone.

You just can’t make this stuff up, Muslim banned from Islamophobia in a flagging campaign by radical Muslims who think he is the wrong kind of Muslim.

Mudderpockers.

 

 

I’d say this says more about the voters

She isn’t “in charge” of that district, that’t the local govt’s job. Who the same people keep electing.

In other words, they vote for people who leave their district looking like that and they also vote for Sheila Jackson Lee. That’s on them.

While I dislike these assholes I don’t blame NY pols for being blatantly corrupt and useless, I don’t blame John McCain for being McCain, I didn’t blame Reid for being so despicable, I blame the people who vote for them.

Up twinkles?

Once again I get mad at lefties for ruining a perfectly good joke. If I had done that it would have been funn…wait, it’s funnier that it’s serious!

Nevermind.

 

See? It was all over place and it just sorta stopped instead of ending.

Not sure if it’s me or the world.

I blame…..uhhhh…… me!

I know, that’s so 19th century.

Or rather, not.

I can’t figure out what’s going on here.

Venezuela’s opposition has announced it will be installing a parallel government outside the influence of current President and dictator Nicolás Maduro.

What good will that do? It’ll be interesting, but somehow I don’t think I’d like to be actually involved.

 

This pisses me off.

U.S. aircraft maker Lockheed Martin and the Indian defense firm Tata Advanced Systems Limited signed an agreement this week affirming the companies’ intent to set up a joint production facility for F-16 Block 70 fighter jets in India.

We need that shit here.

 

In Lahore,  a Christian man was

He argued over how much bike repair would cost and as the argument got heated, they fell back on the old, He Disrespected The Religion of Peace.

The Charleston RiverDogs said they didn’t mean any harm when they played the “Hallelujah Chorus” every time Tim Tebow came up to bat Friday night.

And they didn’t mean to offend the former college and NFL quarterback when Charlie, the RiverDogs mascot, started “Tebowing” – a term coined during Tebow’s days at Florida when he would kneel in prayer after touchdowns.

Neither Islam nor leftism like the kuffir.

A festival in Ohio is trying to make it okay for women to go topless.

an injunction against law enforcement agencies from punishing women for going topless at the popular event.

According to organizers, state liquor agents with the Ohio Investigative Unit have allegedly threatened to file charges against ComFest or shut down alcohol sales at the festival if topless women are allowed to attend and remain at the festival.

Being a titty man, You would think I’d be fer it but I’m agin it. Most of the women who take their tops off in public should keep them on.

 

I tried watching news today, CNN was going on and on about Trump denying he had tapes showing Comey to be the lying sack of shit he is. They were very indignant, all I heard was, “He Trolled Us!!!” I just flipped over and they’re still going on about. Pretty darn funny.

 

There’s just not much going on that’s new or unexpected, it’s all the same crap. It’s funny, I never thought I ‘d miss the annual, “Sharks are eating people!!!!!!!!!!!” media frenzy when people go back to the beach.

 

A comment at Stoaty’s yesterday reminded me of this guy. Michael Moschen. I’ve always figured he was a math nerd who took lots of acid and became a juggler.

This is long, but it’s mesmerizing. The first coupla minutes are a little slow, but once he drops the first ball it gets very impressive.

 

It might have an “adult content” warning, it’s cuz he’s wearing some weird looking, hippy loincloth.

 

If you want to take less time, here he is ‘juggling’ in a triangle.

 

That is freaky. There are times where it’s nearly impossible to see him catch the balls, they’re suddenly in his hand. Sometimes you can barely see him throw the ball, they’re just suddenly careening around the triangle. Weird.

This shows a few of the things he does. If you see the part with the torches, he is holding onto them firmly not spinning them in his palm.

 

He does stuff that will have you yelling at the screen, YOU CAN’T DO THAT! Seriously.

He sometimes plays music by juggling. I hadn’t seen this bit before, it’s a different triangle

 

I used to have Moschen In Motion on VHS, but I can’t find it. I’d like to get it on DVD. It was very cool.

 

That appears to be most of it, but it’s more than 30 minutes. It’s very entertaining if you’re into that sort of thing.

I’ve tried not to use the word “mesmerizing”, but that’s the one that describes him. I kept finding a grin on my face as I watched him.

First, Something Old.

December, 2011

GOP Senate leader Mitch McConnell famously said a year ago that his main task in the 112th Congress was to make sure that President Obama would not be re-elected. Given how he and House Speaker John Boehner have handled the payroll tax debate, we wonder if they might end up re-electing the President before the 2012 campaign even begins in earnest.

 

The article was about some tax deal where the GOP lost…won!. eddiebear handled it with his usual eloquence and restrained commentary.

Fuck you, Mitch McConnell. Brainfuck you with the stupid stick until you get smart. Fuck you for (once again) letting the Obamabots do to you what Bugs Bunny did to Yosemite Sam. Fuck you for giving the O-Bots the high ground on taxes. Fuck you for giving the O-Bots momentum and rising fortunes going into 2012. Fuck you for fucking us over worse than a whore who owes her pimp more than what she pulled in that night. And fuck you simply because I am sick and tired of seeing you stumblefuck from one fuckup to the next.

I miss his posts. H/T whoever came here on a search that found that post.

 

Something New

You have to wonder how liberals think this works. So, a manifestly conflicted special counsel leading a pack of maxed-out Democrat donors decides Donald Trump has to be kicked out of office for “obstructing justice” regarding a cynical lie about him cavorting with the Kremlin and…then what? President Pence, until they do the same thing to him? Or do we just skip right to President Felonia von Pantsuit, shrug our shoulders, and give up on our foolish dream of having a say in our own governance?

Wait, that’s not new!

Because normal Americans are woke to the scam. No, the affidavits of a zillion DC/NY establishment types attesting to Robert Mueller’s impeccable integrity – ever notice how the guy trying to hose us always has the establishment’s “impeccable integrity” merit badge – are not going to make us unsee the fact that he’s carrying water for an establishment that thinks we need to just shut up and obey.

Oh. If true, that’s new.

Now, pulling off the soft coup is going to be harder than they think. The establishment has not thought this out. They sort of assume that if they squelch Trump then everything somehow just goes back to them being in unchallenged control. Wrong.

Bing, bing, bing!!! We have a winner!

They ain’t gonna like what happens next. Kurt Schlichter writes pretty intelligent stuff. You know, stuff that I agree with.

 

Something Borrowed.

Meanwhile, in Mexico City:

A Student Strike Becomes an Occupation, for 17 Years.

Savour that mental image.

It remains unclear exactly who occupies the building and how many members compose the occupying force. Insular and mercurial, they refused repeated requests for interviews. “We’re against the mass media,” explained one occupier, who declined to give his name, saying it was a policy of the occupation not to grant interviews without consent of “the general assembly.” He was standing in what was once the lobby of the auditorium, its walls now covered with insurrectionist stickers, graffiti, posters and murals. “I don’t want to be assimilated into the mass media,” he said.

Oh, there’s more:

And more there is. Click through, it’s hilarious. Various lefty groups keep having coups and counter-coups. I like the part where the anarchists get organized and drive off the rest. That’s funny.

 

Something Blue

Sure it’s cool but it’s fake! notice there are no soldiers in view! Who were they close-air-supporting? Obviously a staged photo-op after the battle was over.

I hate fakes.

 

Everything else is old stuff getting older or new stuff getting pretty dam old.

Something old that’s getting pretty darn old.

The compassionate head tilt makes it funnier.

 

This ain’t new, Gun Control Works!!!!!!!!!!

Investigators have found a cache of weapons at the home of the 31-year-old man who rammed his car into a police van on the Champs Elysees avenue on Monday, a judicial source close to the investigation said…

The revelation of the discovery came after prime minister Edouard Philippe expressed dismay that Dzaziri was able to have a gun permit despite being on a jihadist watchlist.

You think that’s the funniest part? Where have you been? The FEOCE is not new!

Asked to explain why the attacker’s permit wasn’t rescinded, Mr Philippe said that “if you take away a permit from someone who is the subject of surveillance or being monitored, he will quickly understand why it has been taken away. … It’s a difficult decision.”

That makes it for me.  In America our betters are trying to take guns away from people on secret lists, in France they refuse to. Their pols are more in favor of gun rights than ours. As we saw during the Obama years, they kept having “conversations” on “common sense” gun control and only close supervision and letting them know it ain’t gonna happen kept them from screwing us.

 

Speaking of getting pretty fucking old, Common Sense Curbs On The First Amendment!

On April 4, 2017, the US Senate passed Senate Resolution 118, “Condemning hate crime and any other form of racism, religious or ethnic bias, discrimination, incitement to violence, or animus targeting a minority in the United States”. The resolution was drafted by a Muslim organization, EmgageUSA…

The resolution refers to hate crimes against Muslims, Jews, African-Americans, Hindus, and Sikhs and was sponsored by Senator Kamala Harris and co-sponsored by Senator Marco Rubio, Senator Dianne Feinstein, and Senator Susan Collins.

On April 6, almost the exact same text was introduced as House Resolution H.Res. 257, “Condemning hate crime and any other form of racism, religious or ethnic bias, discrimination, incitement to violence, or animus targeting a minority in the United States”. A House Resolution can be reintroduced as legislation.

They’re just resolutions, but both the House and the Senate passed one.

They both say this

Whereas, in 2015, hate crimes targeting Muslims in the United States increased by 67 percent,

cough*bullsthit*cough

According to these two FBI links, 2015

51.3 percent were anti-Jewish.
22.2 percent were anti-Islamic (Muslim).
4.4 percent were anti-Catholic….

52.7 percent were motivated by anti-Black or African American bias.
18.2 percent stemmed from anti-White bias.
9.4 percent were classified as anti-Hispanic or Latino bias.

3.3 percent resulted from anti-Asian bias.

 

and 2014

58.2 percent were anti-Jewish.
16.3 percent were anti-Islamic (Muslim).
6.1 percent were anti-Catholic…

63.5 percent were motivated by anti-Black or African American bias.
22.8 percent stemmed from anti-White bias.
5.5 percent resulted from anti-Asian bias.

Notice the EXPLOSION of anti-Asian hate! 2/3 increase and I haven’t seen shit about it. Why isn’t anybody talking about that? Does our media hate them?

Also notice the HUGE INCREASE of anti-Catholic hate-crimes! It increased more than both Muslim and Jewish hate crimes and yet, there’s no mention of protecting Catholics in the House and Senate resolutions.

Huh. Why…it’s almost as if they’re posturing assholes who hate their voters and are trying to get new ones!?!?!?!?!

 

This might be new. If it makes it here.

Venezuela is the endgame for the game of Destroy The Rule Of Law our fine betters are playing

It is not just the country’s economy and political system that are sick, but society itself, experts say. An epidemic of lynchings is one of the most gruesome symptoms.

– ‘Justice’ –

AFP journalists filmed a lynching close-up in a busy street in the capital Caracas.

A witness says he stopped the man who had tried to rob a woman at gunpoint in a bakery. Then the mob took over.

“You’re lucky we didn’t burn you,” a voice yells, as police lug the man, limp but still breathing, into the back of their car.

The crowd yells in satisfaction — but not at the man’s arrest. They think they are the ones who have done justice here.

“Their aim is to kill the person before the police arrive,” says Marco Ponce, coordinator of the Venezuelan Social Conflict Observatory (OVCS)…

“In lynchings, citizens let out their anger in the face of a state that is not defending their right to justice,” says Ponce.

But they don’t seem to care. Or possibly they’re really too stupid to realize it.

Actually, I’m gonna go with Hanlon’s Law on this one. They really are that stupid.

 

Speaking of roving bands of vigilantes,  Evergreen College violent fascists will never get old.

A telling exchange, one of many:

“It essentially sounded like you were being held hostage. If you wanted to go to the bathroom, you had to go with two escorts – is that true?”

“Erm, that’s what the students felt was true. I was going to go to the bathroom regardless and they wanted to escort me.”

“Why?”

“Why what?”

“Why did they want to escort you to the bathroom?”

“I don’t know.”

“Did you ask them?”

“No, of course not.”

From Michael Moynihan’s short film on events at Evergreen State College, where ‘progressive’ utopia is under construction.

Lovely

In the thread below, several commenters note that the dramas at Evergreen – this Theatre of the Bedlamites™ – is merely an extension and enactment of the values being inculcated by the staff. After years of wearing away the customary moral and behavioural restraints, and after years of rewarding pathological vanities and delusions of persecution, the leftist bureaucrats and educators were caught off-guard by the speed and vehemence with which their own protégés turned on them, using mob force and well-practised spite, and merrily wielding baseball bats. Which reveals just how blinded by ideology, and how ludicrous, and unfit, those educators are.

Tolerance!

 

Speaking of the old story of commies coddling their crazy brethren, China and the Norks!

Can China restrain the Norks? My opinion is, of course, that of course they can but they don’t want to. The Plausible Deniability Province of the Chinese empire.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Secretary of Defense James Mattis will meet with their Chinese counterparts…

The top U.S. priority at the dialogue is finding common ground with China on curbing North Korea’s nuclear weapon and missile development…

I wonder what we’ll have to give China. I just hope Tillerson knows the real deal. I figure he does, Exxon can’t ignore reality. Mattis probably knows for sure.

As part of upholding a UN Security Council resolution, China announced in late February that it would no longer receive coal imports from North Korea…

While China has upheld its commitment to the coal ban, it has purchased greater quantities of iron ore, low-end manufactured goods, and seafood – goods not strictly banned by the UN –  resulting in an overall increase in trade revenue for North Korea

Yup

Beijing may also be dissuading Chinese businesses from contracting North Korean labor, a practice the UN identifies as exploitative, and it estimates 50,000 workers worldwide may generate as much as $1.5 billion for the state. As many as 19,000 of these workers are in China. According to the Nikkei Asian Review, beginning in March of last year, Chinese officials began informally telling firms in the provinces bordering North Korea not to contract North Korean workers. While this measure is useful to Beijing for registering “its displeasure with Pyongyang’s missile and nuclear testing,” as an informal policy, it could be easily reversed and does not demonstrate a strong commitment to the sustained pressure needed to demonstrate cooperation to the U.S. and to bring North Korea back to negotiations.

All that means  is, “Let’s give the media something to talk about.” and our fine social, moral, political and intellectual betters either fall for it or pretend it’s real. It doesn’t really matter either way I guess. I just like to figure stuff out.

 

Speaking of Old, EUnuchs are energy-dependent on Russia so their foreign policy reflects that!

Nord Stream 2 was concluded after the annexation of Crimea by Putin’s Russia, the war against Ukraine, and the shooting down over Ukraine of the MH17 passenger plane. European consumers will pay for the gas, and the money will go to the Putin regime, strengthening it. There is a high probability that, as usual, the Kremlin will spend the proceeds on propaganda, repression, new wars, and annexations – and Europe will be paying for it.

A Nord Stream representative brushed off these concerns, saying it was all “political speculation … we have already been working with Gazprom for 19 years and are going to continue mutually beneficial cooperation”.

That’s so old and obvious our fine social, moral, political and intellectual betters have never even thought of it!

 

I’ve seen a bunch of people making fun of the new Ken dolls. I mostly don’t get it, I mean, it’s for little girls. Is a doll with a man bun really going to be a problem? I’d be more upset about boy bands and Disney sluttifying every girl they get their perverted hands on.

Now, if I were going to do some OUTRAGE MONGERING!!!!! about the new Ken doll, I’d discuss the racism inherent in this picture.

What’s up with putting Fat Ass Barbie with Black Ken? Isn’t that racial profiling?

I’m going to boycott Barbie!!!! I’ll never guy another one! Never another penny!

 

This is going to revolutionize the criminal justice system!

 

 

IMPORTANT, ABOVE THE POST, UPDATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

COMEY!

Now back to our post.

Comey comey comey, comey….comey! Comey comey, comey comey. Comey; “Comey” comey.

Comey.

First, a lie.

Ex-FBI director James Comey said Thursday that he didn’t call for an independent counsel to probe Hillary Clinton’s private email server because there was no evidence that any crime had been committed.

Yeah see, you said she broke the law but didn’t mean to, so no harm no foul. So you’re lying.

Also notice that he saw that Lynch and Hillary were working together to subvert the rule of law and yet, he and all of Minitrue are throwing innuendo at Trump.

Also…. he said he leaked a memo (not the memo, he told a ‘journalist’ what it said), because of what Trump said.

So…. he’ll leak against Trump but exonerate a crook for Obama.

Comey!

This Is CNN!

Read the responses, they’re pretty much all pointing out CNN is a bunch of lying liars who fake news.

Which led to this.

CNN has corrected a Tuesday report after the release of former FBI Director James Comey’s opening statement for his Thursday testimony in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee contradicted the report’s sources.

Aww, poor fakenewsers. It’s not so easy to fake news when the rest of the world doesn’t go along.

 

Awesome.

President Trump is winning on one key campaign promise, cutting regulations and virtually eliminating the release of new ones.

In fact, he has cut the output of costly regulations so deeply that a group that charts the federal government’s output of rules has called the shift “historic.”

He can’t do the GOP’s job and they’re certainly not going to, but he can undo Obama’s lawbreaking/lawmaking ‘pen and phone’ shit.

 

At S Fist we see this story.

A UC Berkeley student who says she was violently attacked by protesters on campus the night of a planned speech by Milo Yiannopoulos in February is now suing the university — along with a host of others including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi — for withholding police protection and allowing attacks like the one she suffered

Sue them senseless.

Well, except for Nancy Pelosi, sue her sensible. She certainly cannot get anymore senseless. But we do know the mayor is a member of one of the violent fascist groups so she has a darn good case.

Via the King of France.

 

Important Update to yesterday’s post!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! A mea wronga.

Yesterday I wrote

I bet if he runs against Trump in 2020 most of the GOP’s Senate contingent will Be For Biden!.

Today we see

“Biden will be interviewed by Romney during a Friday evening event in Park City, Utah, at the invitation-only summit, according to a Biden spokesman and participants briefed on the schedule. The speaker lineup for what is traditionally a gathering of Romney allies is packed with high-profile Republicans, among them House Speaker Paul Ryan and Sens. Lindsey Graham and John McCain.

So much of the GOPers in the Senate and a huge swathe of the GOPers in the House, including the leadership, are already planning Joe Biden’s 2020 run against Trump. I figured the House assholes would keep it on the downlow.

That should raise Trump’s victory by at least 2 points. How often does the same crew work for both candidates in an election?

 

 

Nother Update. I stopped writing this story a few years ago but it’s still a good reminder.

I have been following sunspot numbers for many years now. And while sunspot numbers have been decreasing steadily for several cycles to date, the current dearth is very unusual — especially for this point in the cycle — and, to quote my favorite Vulcan, “Fascinating.” I am definitely continuing to keep an eye on the activity, or rather lack thereof. For those of you who may not be familiar with my background, I am an astrophysicist turned rocket scientist turned author; my graduate work was in spotted variable star astronomy. This IS my principal field of expertise.

Yeah, we’ve been watching that since about 2002 or so, This is from 6/2006.

Now today we see

Yeah, the Sun just keeps not cooperating.

 

For those who are unclear on the term Vicious Cycle

Quincy-based Ermont Inc. has been selling cannabis-infused pizza for about three weeks to rave reviews.

Your munchies will give you the munchies.

 

I could have written, “Bored”, but I’ve done that a few times. I like to be original.

Or at least try to wait until you forgot the last time I used the joke.

I have two windows with tabs open. I’ll do the stupid one first and then probably get tired. Let’s see what happens!

Let’s start with why I decided to do this.
I saw a bunch of stories about how we have Full Employment!!!!!!!! so it’s going to be hard to fill new jobs!

Roto-Reuters sez

Job growth has decelerated from the 181,000 monthly average over the past 12 months as the labor market nears full employment. There is growing anecdotal evidence of companies struggling to find qualified workers. (emphasis me V)

Full Employment!!!!!!  but then they write this

But the labor force participation rate, or the share of working-age Americans who are employed or at least looking for a job, fell two-tenths of a percentage point to 62.7 percent. (that’s me again)

Doesn’t that pretty much disprove the previous paragraph?

Unless they’re saying that these non-labor-participators are ‘unqualified’ and thus, that’s the New Normal!. I don’t like that idea. And not where I thought this was going when I started. I had two links of “Full Employment!!!!!!” and one of “low labor participation” to comment on how they’re idiots.

But now I think they’re being evil.

Let’s see if the L.A. Times does the same thing.

Here are the highlights from the report released by the Labor Department on Friday.

The economy added 138,000 net new jobs, well below expectations.
The unemployment rate declined to 4.3%, its lowest level since 2001.
Wage growth slowed a bit, with average hourly earnings up 4 cents.
“There’s very little about the report that you can look to and draw a positive from,”…

But after 80 straight months of job growth, economists said the labor market is limited in how much more it can expand. The U.S. is nearing full employment, meaning just about all the workers who want a job have one…

No, we’re not nearing “full employment”,

The participation rate has been trending down since the late 1990s as baby boomers retired, but fell off sharply during and after the Great Recession (under Obama, but let’s obfuscate that V) discouraged unemployed Americans gave up looking for jobs. It has hovered near a four-decade low since 2013.

So they obviously know the labor participation rate is in the shitter but they’re avoiding discussing it.

 

 

The number not in the workforce is 94,983,000, at the tone, the US Pop will be 325,162,910 BONGGGGGG!!!!!

That’s 29% not in the labor force, and apparently deemed by our fine lefty betters as being not “qualified”

So the whole Full Employment!!!!!! is not just stupid, or maybe not even stupid, but apparently some nefarious, leftist, deal that excuses these people from working. Probably something to do with welfare, food stamps and global worming.
Hanlon fails again!

We’ll have to update Hanlon, there’s already a Veeshir’s Law on Politicians, If you like a politician you’ve been successfully conned

Hmmmm….How about a Veeshir’s Revision on Hanlon’s Law that states: Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity unless you’re dealing with a lefty, then it’s surely malice and probably stupidity. ?

 

I don’t feel like doing any more, so let’s do a,”Rand Paul is doing his job!” link and then hit “Publish”.

“You need to make sure that your viewers know that most of [climate scientists’] models has been wrong,” Paul said. “They adjust it every year because they haven’t been good at predicting things.”

Tapper throws in some lies, but I don’t feel like quoting Tapper, going to Watt’s Up With That and finding links to NASA, NOAA, British Met and even East Anglia to show they’re lies. That really bores me.

 

Veesh News Alert!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted: June 2, 2017 by veeshir in PEBKAC

Dunnnnn dunnnnnn whoooosh! A Veesh News Alert!

BREAKING NEWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Are we seeing the beginning of a super-villain not named Trump?

It all started innocently in a way it was hard to be against with swarms of insects attacking the NY Yankees in 2007. We laughed.

In 2010 there were further warnings

Rescue crews were using fire hoses to douse an angry swarm of bees after a fatal crash

But we ignored them.

I think this year is going to be the year we see our first super-villain!

More baseball swarmings!

La Guardia swarmed with mosquitos!

Swarm of bees shuts down 5th Avenue!

Flying, swarming cockaroaches!

Upstate NY gets swarmed!

Lest we think it’s just a NY phenomena

It got so bad in Nawlins it made weather satellites!

 

London!

India getting attacked!

So why are former Brit colonies being attacked? I mean, we haven’t heard about Australia but I’d say because it’s hard to introduce a swarm of anything worse than Australia already has.

Chris Adriaansen, director of the Australian Plague Locust Commission, identified the insect as a grasshopper species.

“They’re not a locust species, they’re a grasshopper species,” he said.

Yawn. Get back to me when you can whop up a plague of locusts.

…unlike the Australian plague locusts which feed on grass species and grain crops.

Actually, plagues of locusts are sorta boring there too.

“When they’re in numbers obviously they can create a level of damage but generally the population will drop back reasonably quickly, so the damage won’t persist for any great length of time,” he said…

Mr Adriannsen said there was no risk of these particular insects in Alice Springs migrating to southern or eastern farms.

They barely even noticed it.

That must have pissed off our super-villain.

What we cannot ignore though is that our world is under attack by an insect controlling super-villain!

We have to destroy our economy and way of life to combat thi..oh wait, that’s global worming.

How do you fight insect super-villains?

 

Still less ridiculous than anything I’ve seen on CNN today.

Don’t believe that?

They have a story where J Effin Kerry sez

The world is “laughing (and) crying at the President of the United States, who clearly doesn’t know what he’s talking about,”…

And it wasn’t from a year or more ago talking about Obama!

They also link this article about someone running in Trump Country! So where is Trump Country?

in Powell, Tennessee…

Yeah, no.

Trump country is NYC and NJ.

 

Let me know when CNN and Foxnews start talking about real news instead of media generated Fake News!!!!!!!!!!!!! so I can watch TV news again.

And I think we won the Cold War.

Again.

I see at the IB that Chris Cornell, the singer from Soundgarden, died. RIP, as Sobek says, he was a damn fine singer. I was a classic rock guy until the 90s and got into alternative rock. I figure it was because they went back to rock and roll’s roots: heroin.

I always figured spoonman had something to do with cooking up some heroin. I could be wrong as it doesn’t really seem to mean anything intelligible, sorta like your average junkie.

 

Well, there’s maybe a little of the 90s, but it’s the funny part.

1990, Crackhead Mayor of DC, Democrat Marion Barry, sez,

The enraged Barry muttered over and over, “Bitch set me up . . . references to the woman who lured him to the hotel…

 

Flash ahead to 2017 and a different minitrue outlet is saying the Bitch Set Him Up!, and it’s hilarious.

…girl who had exchanged sexually explicit text messages with former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) lied about her age and political motivations to harm Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, according to a report by the investigative news site WhoWhatWhy.

Hey, that’s our schtick! sez the Wash Post.

Who’s WhoWhatWhy? They’re a non-partisan, internet website that only looks to get to the truth!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Let’s look at their totally trustworthi- and non-partisaniness!

Fighting the Koch Brothers for Transparency in South Dakota…Vigilance Is Needed to Fight Net Neutrality Rollback…Closing Borders and Ethnocentrism Unite Trump and Hungary’s Orbán…Trump and Evangelicals, the Culmination of an Unholy Alliance… (and my personal favorite last, recall that Comey’s replacement is a Friend Of Hillary V)…WWW Exclusive: Felix Sater Links Trump to Comey’s Replacement

Yeah. They’re the gold standard in minitrue journalism, they hate all the right people.

It’s funny how often bitches be setting up Democrats.

 

Before we get on to ignoring Comey, something that has me confused. First, notice the URL, nation.co.ke, you know our fine lefty idjits at The Nation here would love that url. Cuz nation.lsd is taken.

Second, this.

The United Nations has accused Ukraine of defying an international embargo on South Sudan and supplying the country with weapons.

 

At first I was all, “Yay Ukraine!” South Sudan needs to be able to fight back against their fine, tolerant, slave-raiding, murderous neighbors to the north, but then I read this.

Meanwhile, sacked army chief Paul Malong returned to Juba on Saturday, saying he never intended to wage war against President Salva Kiir.
“If I want to rebel I can do it in Juba. If I was about to fight I would fight here,” he told reporters upon his arrival in the capital.
President Kiir dismissed his powerful, hardline army chief on Tuesday last week.
Malong, long regarded as an ethnic nationalist of Kiir’s majority Dinka tribe, was replaced by Gen James Ajongo Mawut, a career soldier.

Will whoever gets those weapons be loyal to the new country that just doesn’t want to be enslaved and murderously dictated at or loyal to the slave-raiding, murderous dictator or is he trying to become a whole nother murderous dictator?

I hope it’s option A, but that’s not usually the way to bet in this world.

 

In more Comey free news, Obstruction Of Justice!

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz threatened the chief of the U.S. Capitol Police with “consequences” for holding equipment that she says belongs to her in order to build a criminal case against a Pakistani staffer suspected of massive cybersecurity breaches involving funneling sensitive congressional data offsite.

 

Oh wait, that’s non-Trump-related. That means it can be safely ignored cuz Trump said something stupid!

Okay, just a little Comey. CNN has The Scoop Of The Millennia! Nother, totally accurate, memo that they’ve been given! They’re not just reporting on what some dude told them!

Well there’s no arguing with that!

 

News We All Knew!

the 22-year-old British man believed to have killed 22 people in a suicide-bomb attack, had ties to al Qaeda and had received terrorist training abroad, a U.S. intelligence official told NBC News…

…had traveled to Libya within the last 12 months, one of multiple countries he had visited, the official said. And while he had “clear ties to al Qaeda,” the official said, (dead terrorist) could have also had connections to other groups…

The U.S. official said Abedi’s bomb was “big and sophisticated,” using materials hard to obtain in Britain — meaning “it’s almost impossible to see he didn’t have help.”

It’s funny how EUnuchs noticing reality so soon is reason for applause. They’ll never know his motives, but at least they’re this far along.

The worst part of the episode.

Members of his own family had even informed on him in the past, telling British authorities that he was dangerous, according to the intelligence official.

There’s no excuse for Known Wolf. Especially when his family sez it.

 

What a difference an ejection makes.

I love the look… smirk on Trump’s face.

 

Let’s Trump!

CNN has him now!

I was going to link a Trump’s Budget Is Gonna Kill Us All!!!!!!!!!!!!! articles, but there are so many out there it’s hard to choose just 1,465, so do a search for “Trump’s Budget” and read the headlines.

Or, you could read this.

President Donald Trump’s budget proposal this week will include provisions to end many foreign military grants administered by the State Department and replace them with loans, a move that could affect up to $1 billion in aid to dozens of countries if Congress approves, U.S. officials said.

An internal State Department memo reviewed by The Wall Street Journal names Pakistan, Tunisia, Lebanon, Ukraine, Colombia, Philippines and Vietnam as among countries that could be affected.

 

I’m for most of that. Why are we giving money to Hezbollah?

 

Alternate headline, Twitter Co-Founder Apologizes For Free Speech!

Twitter Co-Founder Apologizes For Making Trump Presidency Possible

His headline is more subtly funny, I’m more direct usually.

Breaking news from

 

Two related links.

Democrats in America think it’s okay to attack their enemies. Not just okay, but required.

Most people, when they want their congressional members to hear their dissenting voices, send a letter, drop an email, leave a voicemail.

Democrats? They threaten violence.

Our fine betters have been othering normal Americans , their plans are finally coming together.
I wish them well of it.

 

The Democrats’ allies in Venezuela are a little further along in their plans.

Crazy, 37 second long video I can’t embed showing a bunch of guys, wearing black, riding black motorcycles going from left to right throwing stuff and firing long guns behind them and then you see a bunch of just people chasing after them.

Venezuela is just ugly and all our fine media betters are fucking ignoring it.

I did think of one way Maduro could use those surface-to-air missiles, he could give them to FARC and they could shoot down a US drug-interdiction plane.

If your country’s going to shit, why not start a war with America?

It can’t hoit!

 

Teach your children well!

 

 

It used to be that the Simpsons was where you went to see the hilarity of our society, then Futurama came along and showed us the future was gonna be ridiculously funny too!

 

Yeah, I thought I was  a little light on links so I’d throw in some filler.

In my defense, all everybody is talking about is whatever fake, Comey news they’re spewing today. I just can’t take it some days.
