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.

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.

And you don’t know where to go to
Why don’t you go where fashion sits


Putin on the titz

 

This post is about Reality!!!!!!!!!!!!, alternatively speaking, but I just love the things that Tsar Putin I does.

He’s left Bond-villain status behind and now he’s like a cross between a tsar and an Austin Powers villain.

 

Via Doug at my favorite ‘Stan (who has the best response I wish I could steal), we see that no troll is too far.

Two conservative journalists have sparked outcry on social media by making what some have interpreted as a white supremacist hand symbol at a recent visit to the White House.

 

Yeah about that.

/pol/ convinces News media – Okay Hand Sign Stands for White Power 👌 (i.redd.it)
submitted 1 day ago by Simi510/pol/ack

I look forward to seeing this become TRUTH!!!!!!!!!!! and OK will be an unword as soon as the 78th edition of the Newspeak dictionary comes out.

I do wonder if I could get a deal started where using both hands and putting the open parts together is Nazi-symbology.

 

 

You really cannot be too ridiculous anymore, somewhere there is someone who will believe it no matter how stupid and nonsensical. It’s how our ELITE!!!! universities are training people, but we’ll have to wait until, or if, Merkel starts going after’refugees’.

 

I also like the “REALITY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” of a Symbolic Hunger Strike going on over at Harvard. The food court for the Symbolic Hunger Strike is probably run by the Dumbledore Army and I bet it has vegan ‘ribs’, unlike those GOP meanies who are having a BBQ right next to where they’re Symbolically Hunger Striking (in between meals)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Let’s have a quiz. It’ll be multiple guess.

Who’s more smug?

1) Whole Foods customers

“People say Whole Foods is for pretentious people, and I can see why. It’s too expensive…

It’s like that Jim Gaffigan joke – Whole Foods on Sunday is just a refugee camp for people with too much money.”

B) Samantha Bee and the rest of the Democratic, political/media/entertainment complex.

SAMANTHA BEE ON CNN: THERE IS NO ‘SMUG LIBERAL PROBLEM:’

The puppy blender has this graphic (although I agree with that. Rich, white, lefties are ruining America)

III) Or Phteven The Starbucks Barista

 I bet he practices that look in the mirror.

It’s quartus) All of the above.

But in order I’d say B-III-1, although I could see it being III-B-1.

 

This just shows a fundamental misunderstanding of the purpose of a bureaucracy.

An Internal Revenue Service program designed to prevent fraud costs taxpayers roughly $18.2 million per year, but doesn’t work, according to the taxpayer watchdog group Citizens Against Government Waste.

No, it worked just fine. It created a new level of bureaucracy funded to the tune of $18.2 million and next year, what with the sequester and all, that will be raised to only $36.4 million. Without the sequester is was going to be raised to $54.6 million but the sequester is starving the gov’t.

 

An Open letter to President Trump:

Dear President Trump,

Get. Out. Of. Syria.

Thanks,

Veeshir

The US has reportedly sent troops to the border between Turkey and the autonomous Kurdish region of northern Syria, in an apparent response to a spate of Turkish assaults on Kurdish targets.

P.S. Just send jihadis, AKs and RPGs.

 

If we’re going to get into a war with Russia, I’d rather do it in eastern Europe than the Middle East.

 

I’m not sure what reality this guy infests, but I do wonder what color oranges are there.

Headline

‘THE US HAS LONG SUPPORTED INTERNATIONAL JUSTICE, NOW IT SHOULD BE SUBJECTED TO IT’

Yeah, no. We’ve been telling the International Tribunals so go screw since the 50s. The last time we got involved was to hang some Nazis.

They call him the “dictator hunter”. Reed Brody has been following the bloody trail of infamous political leaders for over 30 years, his latest trophy is Chad’s former president, Hissène Habré. And his next? George W Bush and Henry Kissinger are on his list.

 

Good luck with that.

Athough the way Bush has joined the We’re Better And Smarter Than You Party, he might be open to a little international justice.

For Trump’s racism and fascism though.

This is the tell.

“More than putting the criminal in prison, what interests me is to support the victims who fight for justice, to help them regain their dignity,” the American lawyer told Euronews in Geneva, where he participated in a debate entitled “The International Criminal Court under fire”.

They’re running out of money. “Under fire” always, always, always means that their funding is threatened.

This is the funniest part of the bit. They’re talking about The Dictator Hunter remember.

Brody worked with the non-governmental organisation Human Rights Watch (HRW) between 1998 and 2016.

Human Rights Watch. The ones who spend much of their time taking the side of Palestinian terrorists and occasionally issue a pro forma, “China, Cuba and the Norks can be bad” report.

Now that I think about it, they should be up there in the smug quiz. So it’s ‘all of the above and one of the below’ if you’re keeping score at home.

 

 

If this was my class I’d be so proud.

I bet the bureaucrats in the school did not see the humor or inventiveness though. They were probably charged with a felony for blocking a fire exit.

 

Now I can’t wait until I buy a place to live and put a carpet down so I can put this on the floor under the carpet for the next owners to find.

That’s hilarious. (2nd item)

It’s just no good anymore since they went away
Now I spend my time just making posts from yesterday

 

Topical!

There is no logic. There are no facts. You can say blue, and they will hear white. One plus one equals cat. Calling the left mentally ill is truly a disservice to those who are mentally ill. At least with mental illness there’s a reason for the madness and a hope for a cure. There is no hope for the left. They are suffering from a deep-rooted spiritual sickness, one for which, I’m afraid, there is no cure.

When you compare a United States President to a creature who killed 6 million Jews and 5 million others, what exactly is the starting point for a logical conversation?…

How do you talk to people who use the Holocaust as a prop? The Jews, the disabled, the gays, and those who were different were all exterminated. They have now become a straw man for the spiritually depraved, demonic left. What do you say to people who chant “We are all Muslim” when the Muslim is looking at them, going: “Yes, that is the goal isn’t it, dead or alive?”

Exactly. Trying to intelligently debate someone who compares anybody but Hitler, or maybe Stalin, to Hitler is about useless. Willful ignorance is functionally the same as stupidity and you wouldn’t argue with an idiot as to whether blue tastes better than Cheerios, would you?

 

H/T Added 20 minutes later!!!!!!

Relatedly,  selectively stupid hate!

He didn’t rape anyone or have an affair with his intern (Bill Clinton), he didn’t kill anyone, (Ted Kennedy), he didn’t smoke crack with some hooker in a seedy motel (Marion Barry), he didn’t text photos of his junk to underage girls (Anthony Weiner), he didn’t sell favors to our enemies (hiLIARy Clinton), he didn’t disrespect our military and throw his medals away (John Kerry), he didn’t have bribe money hidden in his freezer (William Jefferson), he didn’t make fun of Indian (dot head, not woo woo) convenience store clerks (Joe Biden), he didn’t belong to the KKK (Robert Byrd), he didn’t father a child with a 15 year old black woman (Strom Thurmond), he wasn’t caught texting sex message to teenage boys (Mark Foley), or run a gay house of prostitution with his boyfriend (Barney Frank), or try to pick up men in public restrooms (Larry Craig), and those are just from memory, I haven’t even Googled anything yet.

Donald Trump did nothing like any of those other politicians, yet those people are beloved and he is hated.

Yeah but…..compassion!….tolerance!……

This is the money shot

And are we really going to kill each other over politicians? Seriously? Think about that for a moment. Brother against brother, husband versus wife, over people like Mitch McConnell or Elizabeth Warren. OMG…what has happened to us

Yup. If there are people less worth getting rioting-angry about than any of our fine political betters, well, I can’t think of them.

 

The failure theater I expected is in full gear, fuck the GOP.

 

Should I get worked up in defense of these assholes?

A group of prominent Republicans and business leaders pitched a tax on carbon dioxide to top White House aides Wednesday, selling the plan as an economic win that could drive job growth and yield environmental dividends too.

Former Secretary of State James Baker and other members of the new “Climate Leadership Council” pressed the case in a 45-minute meeting in the Roosevelt Room that included President Donald Trump’s top economic adviser Gary Cohn, Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and senior aide Kellyanne Conway.

Sigh. I can only hope Trump was playing Angry Birds during the presentation and only allowed them in for some sort of pat on the head for the GOP assholes.

Speaking of Failure Theater!

house-of-shut-up

Fuckheads are slow-rolling.

Primary season is just around the corner!

Speaking of fuckhead Republicans and their disdain for their ‘base’, Kristollnacht!

Weekly Standard editor-at-large Bill Kristol said Tuesday afternoon that the white working class should be replaced by immigrants as they have become “decadent, lazy” and “spoiled.”

“Look, to be totally honest, if things are so bad as you say with the white working class, don’t you want to get new Americans in?”

I really do not like the NRO/Weekly Standard assholes. I used to subscribe to NRO, but now I can’t even read Jay Nordlinger.

The best part, for me, is that they went all in on Palin-hate and thought they won but now we have Trump. That has to really piss them off.

 

Just don’t forget, they’re smarter and better than you!

The demographic most opposed to President Trump is not a racial minority, but a cultural elite.

This isn’t a revolution. The revolutions happened in June and November. Brexit and Trump were revolutions. The protests against them are a reaction by the overthrown establishment.

 

Yeah see, you were in charge and that’s why we’re so fucked so sit down, shut up and drink your damn appletini.

 

I read this story at AZ Central (supported Hillary!) about a totally blameless immigrant who’s just trying to make a better life.

For  four years, federal immigration authorities have given Guadalupe Garcia de Rayos a pass to remain in the U.S. rather than deport her back to Mexico.

That changed Wednesday, when Garcia de Rayos went to check in as usual at the central Phoenix offices of Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Instead of being released, she was taken into custody, while her husband, two children — both U.S.-born citizens — and a group of supporters watched in tears….

In a statement, ICE officials said only that Garcia de Rayos was detained because of her prior conviction, which stems from a work-site raid almost a decade ago.(that’s a lie as we’ll see shortly V)

And thought, “There’s something they’re not telling me. Why is this totally innocent woman being targeted? Maybe she’s not so innoccent!”, imagine my unsurprise when I saw this.

She was arrested in 2008 during a workplace raid ordered by then-Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio at Golfland Sunsplash amusement park in Mesa, Ariz., and convicted of felony identity theft for possessing false papers.

Oh, convicted of a felony. That’s different. And the AZ Central article also managed to avoid mentioning this

ICE officials confirmed the detention on Wednesday. “Ms. Garcia de Rayos is currently being detained by ICE based on a removal order issued by the Department of Justice’s Executive Office for Immigration Review which became final in May 2013,” the agency said in a news release.

So Trump was POTUS in 2013? Huh. And isn’t that a little different from what AZ Central told us ICE said?

Which leads us to the question Which should be their catchphrase?

Minitrue: Lying Liars Who Lie!

Minitrue: Purveyors Of Fake News Since 1895!

 

They so miss Obama they’re forced to doing Tiger Teen! articles full of stupidities and lies.

“Obama makes rest of us look bad with his effortless kitesurfing”

– The Washington Post, Early Lead, February 7, 6:32 PM

 

Hahahahahahahahaha. I bet they had to type that one-handed.

These claims are false. As the video reveals Obama fell multiple times off the kiteboard despite “perfect conditions” and practicing for “two days solid” before the challenge.

Hahahahhahahahah. I love this part.

However, Love also admitted Obama is “not the most explosive guy, not the fastest guy,” and he “lacks in physical capabilities.”

Video evidence reveals Obama does not “knock down open shots.” ABC News reported in 2013 that, when playing against children, Obama was “ice cold” after going just 2 for 22 from the floor. The former president had to be shown how to make a layup by a 10 year old.

Hahahahahahahahahaha

Why…it’s almost as if they lie about Obama more than they do about Trump!?!?!?!?

 

They’re better than you!

Scores of NYPD cops have installed illegal flash-reflecting plastic covers on their personal-vehicle license plates that can thwart toll and traffic cameras

I’m pretty sick of this culture of impunity for our betters.

 

The Hill has high hopes.

Is Gorsuch a secret liberal? Trump, GOP have reason to wonder.

They lay it out, he lives in and near lefties!!!!!! And look at this!

sided with an Albuquerque middle schooler who was strip-searched by his school, dissenting while his colleagues ruled that the school, police officer and other employees were immune from lawsuits.

Okay, that’s just stupid. That’s not “liberal”, that’s “libertarian”. I understand liberaltarians try to obfuscate the issue, but they are different.

I’d say most lefties were not in favor of being able to sue the gov’t, unless you’re a leftist suing for Social Justice!!!! of course.
Back in 2014, I wrote about an article noting that Sweden was importing many tens of thousands of Syrian “refugees”.

This should end well.

…Sweden. Because the government decided to offer residence permits to every Syrian who requests one, it’s estimated that by the end of 2014 another 80,000 will have come.

Well, not so much end well as make Denmark and Finland laugh their asses off.

So how is it going?

More than 110 blazes ripped through accommodation centres across the Scandinavian nation, according to national police statistics. Of those fires, around 20 are believed to have been caused by carelessness or accident.

However Swedish officials have now said 92 of the infernos were started deliberately, with 37 of them being started by a resident at the home.

In the remaining cases, two culprits have been identified, but 53 of the fires remain unsolved as police have no leads as to who the suspects may be.

Hey! Let’s import a few tens of thousands here! Paul Krugman told us destroying shit is good for the economy!

 

I wonder if the previous story had anything to do with this.

Drawing on a unique, new Chatham House survey of more than 10,000 people from 10 European states, we can throw new light on what people think about migration from mainly Muslim countries. Our results are striking and sobering. They suggest that public opposition to any further migration from predominantly Muslim states is by no means confined to Trump’s electorate in the US but is fairly widespread.

Wait, you mean that people do not like importing other people who hate them and their whole, westernly-civilized nations? The deuce you say!

It takes an ‘elite’ to be surprised by that.

 

Speaking of Syrian ‘refugees’, let’s see how that bucket of scorpions is taking being shook up.

The complication is that the advancing forces — the Syrian Army and pro-government militias backed by Russia, and Syrian rebels backed by Turkey — are sworn enemies.

Their simultaneous race to seize the city, Al Bab, has turned into a test of how a global realignment of powers supporting Syria’s antagonists could help reshape or end the nearly six-year-old conflict…

The coming days will show if the Syrian foes, who do not always obey their patrons, will work together for the first time against the Islamic State, or drive out the extremists and then try to kill one another.

Yeah, that’ll work out great. The first question I have is if the “rebels’ will side with ISIS against the gov’t or if they’ll wait until ISIS is driven out before attacking the gov’t forces.

Which leads to the next questions, what’s Tsar Putin I going to do about it? How about Sultan Erdogan? Will Russia and Turkey get into a war?

 

The feel-good story of the week! Some idiots went to Cuba for their “Dream Wedding!” and found out when they got there that they were having a “Dream Wedding!” in a commie shithole.

A couple of apartheid-loving Brits who planned a lavish wedding in Cuba suffered a gigantic disappointment when the roof of their wedding venue collapsed.

Many were injured, including the bride and groom and their two children.

Needless to say, the Castro regime collected a lot of money from these newlyweds and their 24 guests, but won’t have to pay a shilling in compensation for injuries, trauma, and distress….

They chose to spend $31,287 for a wedding in one of the most repressive and impoverished countries on earth.

(Quick calculation: for a Cuban worker to afford such a wedding he/she would have to work for 105 years and save every penny for that event).

Even worse, they hoped it would be “the wedding of their dreams.”

 

It was the wedding of my dreams. I wonder if they’ll reevaluate their love of communism. Probably not, it takes real stupidity and willful ignorance to go to fucking Cuba to have a dream wedding.

Carlos asks a question

So… is it wrong to feel good about this couple’s bad luck?

No, it’s one of the things that’s right in the world. Feeling sorry for them would be wrong. They went to a gigantic slave-island. They deserved all the shit they got.

 

It doesn’t rain but it pours.

Samsung SDI made the news again on Wednesday when one of its plants in China caught fire.

Talk about bad optics. I will say I love my Samsung J-3.  The battery lasts a long time and it works very well.

 

Just some inside-basketball stuff. Before the basketball season started I watched the Knicks try to build a winner, with good players and I wrote

The schadenfreudey part is that the Knicks spent a lot of money on assholes like Noah but they kept Carmelo Anthony. CarMElo Anthony has Obama level narcissism.

He’s going to be such a whiney “Give me the ball” bitch the Knicks will suck anyway. They had a guy, Jeremy Lin, who came out of nowhere when ‘MElo’ was injured and the fans loved him. So once MElo was back, he forced Lin out.  I’m gonna laugh my ass off as they are screwed this year either by listening to MElo or by the ruckus he’ll cause if they don’t.

So what’s happening? The Knicks suck and are trying to trade ‘Melo but there are no takers and now he’s fighting with the GM.

Hahahahahhahaa. And that’s why I stopped watching basketball long ago. I liked Jordan, I didn’t like Kobe, and now all the ‘stars’ act like Kobe. When he was in trouble for rape one of his teammates said, anonymously, “I don’t believe the accusations, Kobe doesn’t make a pass to anyone!”

 

Now, if I was a little more superstitious, I’d be celebrating this,

Astronomers and stargazers will be treated to three celestial events on Friday night through Saturday morning.

The trifecta includes a “penumbra” lunar eclipse during the full “snow” moon and a comet flyby!

but all the apocalypse scenarios have been teases I hate to get my hopes up.

Although… the fact that it’s a “penumbra” eclipse, gives me hope.

Penumbras are always used to screw us.

Jurists have used the term “penumbra” as a metaphor for rights implied in the constitution (Commerce Clause! V)

So we have that going for us.

 

Funny or Die has the most hilarious video. I gotta wonder if whoever got them to do it is a Trump fan. I laughed the whole way through.

 

 

A few months ago I wouldn’t have thought it that funny, but this reeks of desperation and stupidity.

But mostly desperation.

My favorite line? Glad you asked AliceH

“Facebook filters out dissension!”

 

note=425 in descending arpeggio.

The hits are fast and furious today.

Let’s start with Stoaty’s question.

Have you ever laughed so hard, your soul came out your nose?

hillary-glamour-shot

Yes, yes I have.

Zombie Hillary! says, “It’s eczema.”

ABC asks, who knew what about Hillary’s health when?

I’ll field that one, everybody who doesn’t get their information from Minitrue knew something serious was up at least a week ago. You could tell by the pushback. Notice how hard they’re pushing back now that they can’t hide it.

Trump is looking out for Hillary!,  he doesn’t want a moderator at the next debate, I figure he wants a nurse to be there. He’s good that way.

Okay, this one makes me laugh.

But these are the Clintons. If you’re a Clinton, you lie. It’s what you do. Expecting them to not lie is a fool’s errand. But given the amount of time the Clintons have spent in politics lying to the public–somewhere in the neighborhood of three decades–they really ought to be better at it by now.

Clinton lies, for 25 years, have accused me of being an idiot by their very utterance, they haven’t had to be good at lying. They figured that out when Bill said, “I didn’t inhale” and none of the “journalists” taking stenography laughed. I’m sure they’re wondering what the hell is going on that their media toadies are not keeping the lid on this.

 

More pop-culture!

bernies-victory

Her eyes should have been closed, Stoaty wouldn’t have made that mistake.

Now, I’ve said that this election is like choosing between being shot by a .50BMG or an unknown gun. I’ve seen it’s between playing russian roulette with a semi-auto or a revolver (they mention that one in the next link), but I have to admit, on 9/12, this one is particularly apropos.

The Flight 93 Election

2016 is the Flight 93 election: charge the cockpit or you die. You may die anyway. You—or the leader of your party—may make it into the cockpit and not know how to fly or land the plane. There are no guarantees.

Except one: if you don’t try, death is certain.

Hard to argue with that.

Overseas is heating up too.

China and Russia are getting together to practice landing and taking islands in the South China Sea

Russia…errr…totally not Tsar Putin I’s troops are getting extra restive in Ukraine.

South Korea appears to think the Norks are getting ready to blow up Seoul.

South Korea has a plan to annihilate the North Korean capital if it shows any signs of mounting a nuclear attack, according to reports from Seoul.

They obviously know that they’re on their own there.

Obama!

1slackobama

 

Surprising only J Effin Kerry and Obama’s Smirt Duhplomacy Crew (including Hillary! I’d bet),

The deal brokered by the United States and Russia to cease hostilities in war-torn Syria was immediately violated by both government and rebel forces shortly after going into effect Monday,

As I’ve written before, and as anybody who’s paid any attention whatsoever knows, except for Israel, every”Cease-Fire” in the middle east is the war-time equivalent of “Your shoelaces are untied!”

Hezbollah is arming up on the border of Israel.

 

Hezbollah has allegedly started to “secretly” deploy its members to Quneitra to replace regime troops stationed in the province near the Golan demarcation line with Israel, according to a pro-opposition outlet.

Al-Etihad press reported Thursday that pro-regime troops in Madinat al-Baath and Khan Arnabeh—both government strongholds northeast of the rebel-held Quneitra border crossing—were being “withdrawn in batches” for redeployment near the western Ghouta suburbs of Damascus.

So we have the US election going crazy and the world looking much closer to blowing up than I would expect in September.

I worry about how this will effect Obama retirement.

 

 

Me tubin’ Too.

First, something I can’t decide if it’s funny or endy or just pathetically terrifying.

When I played that, it had a Trump ad across the middle. I’ll call that a win.

Which leads to a comment I posted at Paco’s that made me laugh. I’m posting it here to make me laugh again.

RebeccaH, good point.

Starting with the ’96 election, the candidates have become progressively (pun intended) worse and worse.

If you plot the trajectory on a graph, you find that by 2024 the candidates will be a Papa John’s pizza running against Wednesday.

 

Next, some gunny stuff.

I must have been about 5 years too young for this awesomeness.

I still want one.

 

So, anybody up for a game of pool?

I’d need to borrow a 9mm, my stuff just blows the shit out of the table.

I had an Ebiscu Muscats vid ready, but as I watched it, I realized it just wasn’t as hot as Banana Mango High School.

But this one was queued on the side, so I figured I would post it as a public service to the Chinese who seem hell-bent on getting into a war with the Chinese.

We are not nearly afraid enough of the Japanese.

What the hell is going on in that vid eo? There’s something about it that almost makes sense but it’s just out of reach.

I mean, you can almost see it, and then a bunch of bones floats by and a huge black guy in knickers starts dancing.

I just find it hard to believe that even two atomic bombs can erase centuries of being badasses so they’re a powderkeg waiting to get off…go off.
