But I’m leaning toward 2+2=5.

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

Speaking of 1984, Minitrue! LA Times edition

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

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

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

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

 

 

I didn’t know this.

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

Katrina. They still owe money from fucking Katrina.

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

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

Most illuminating use of “Some Believe” EVER!

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

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

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

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

But of course.

Now, the casual, “Well, duh.”

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

So where’s the debt clock now?

$18,4 trillion

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

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

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

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

Understatement of the day!

…but may also result in discrimination.

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

The rule of law, she is dead.

 

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

Yeah, that.

 

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

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

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

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

What. Ever.

There are televangelists I have respected, but not him.

 

This leads to us to one question.

 after a dispute with her roommate.

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

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

Troopers also say alcohol played a role in the incident.

No!

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

 

Speaking of which.

ISIS suicide bomber actually hoping for 72 experienced sluts 

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

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

There does seem to be a flaw in that belief.

 

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

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

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

That’s hilarious.

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

 

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

I watched much of Trump’s Afghanistan speech and I liked it, lots of Never Trumpers didn’t and, of course, Ralph Peters. Ralph is a military genius, just ask him.

We can justify a limited presence in Afghanistan, perhaps 3,000 to 4,000 troops total, for the purpose of killing international terrorists. And we need not stop providing arms to Kabul. But it’s time to stop giving blood.

I hope I’m wrong. I, too, want our casualties to have meaning. But no matter how we reinterpret our mission, there’ll be more American blood. And the only Americans who’ll benefit will be contractors, who love impossible missions that never end.

We cannot save a country that won’t save itself.

So what did Trump say about nation building?

I share the American people’s frustration.  I also share their frustration over a foreign policy that has spent too much time, energy, money, and most importantly lives, trying to rebuild countries in our own image, instead of pursuing our security interests above all other considerations.

That’s a funny way to say we’re going to ‘rebuild’ Afghanistan.

How about ‘making sure our casualties have meaning!!!!!’?

A core pillar of our new strategy is a shift from a time-based approach to one based on conditions.  I’ve said it many times how counterproductive it is for the United States to announce in advance the dates we intend to begin, or end, military options.  We will not talk about numbers of troops or our plans for further military activities.

Conditions on the ground — not arbitrary timetables — will guide our strategy from now on.  America’s enemies must never know our plans or believe they can wait us out.  I will not say when we are going to attack, but attack we will.

Allowing the military to figure out how to perform their missions and not shout it out to the world? I imagine there are a few people in the military who like that.

First, our nation must seek an honorable and enduring outcome worthy of the tremendous sacrifices that have been made, especially the sacrifices of lives.  The men and women who serve our nation in combat deserve a plan for victory.  They deserve the tools they need, and the trust they have earned, to fight and to win.

The worst thing that happened in Afghanistan was that the Obama admin had absolutely no plan for actually trying to win or any clue what actual victory would be.

Finally, my administration will ensure that you, the brave defenders of the American people, will have the necessary tools and rules of engagement to make this strategy work, and work effectively and work quickly.

I have already lifted restrictions the previous administration placed on our warfighters that prevented the Secretary of Defense and our commanders in the field from fully and swiftly waging battle against the enemy.  Micromanagement from Washington, D.C. does not win battles.  They are won in the field drawing upon the judgment and expertise of wartime commanders and frontline soldiers acting in real time, with real authority, and with a clear mission to defeat the enemy.

The second worst thing was the Rules of Engagement, the ROE were based on politicians, bureaucrats and lawyers. Getting rid of those will mean our military can do something useful.

Third and finally, I concluded that the security threats we face in Afghanistan and the broader region are immense.  Today, 20 U.S.-designated foreign terrorist organizations are active in Afghanistan and Pakistan — the highest concentration in any region anywhere in the world.

Pretending countries like Pakistan and the oil ticks on the Arabian peninsula are our allies is very counterproductive. I’m not saying we shouldn’t have tried to make them true allies, but they all say one thing in English and another in their language. It’s time to start letting them know we aren’t playing their games. We simplisme Americans expect our allies to not actively fight against us. We’re weird that way.

So yeah, I’m all in on this.

Tell the military what victory means and then let them achieve it. I don’t know what he means by victory, but I hope it means killing a bunch of terrorists, scaring the living shit out of the rest and leaving a bunch of troops, like Marines and maybe some 10th Mountain, some Apaches, A-10s and some serious artillery to make sure they remember who they’re most afraid of.

We have our own poofy-haired maniac, let’s use him!

 

We do have one thing going for us, the rest of the world is getting rambunctious.

Three decades later, Chinese and Indian soldiers find themselves in a similar situation in Doklam today, locked eyeball-to-eyeball in a potentially combustible situation. The crucial difference this time is that India is reacting in a third country’s territory – Doklam is disputed between China and Bhutan – which only makes India’s intervention even more provocative to Beijing…

This violated mutually agreed standard operating procedures, which require patrols encountering each other in disputed territory to maintain a physical distance and unfurl cloth banners (that every patrol carries) emblazoned with a dual-language message: “This is our territory; kindly return to your side”. After doing so, patrols are required to disengage and return to their camps…

But as tensions have escalated unchecked, this useful procedure with banners that has ensured peace since the Wangdung incident has degenerated into jostling and pushing and now stone-pelting. Both patrols were armed but, fortunately, neither opened fire. Such restraint cannot be counted upon to continue forever. Sooner or later some soldier, perhaps injured by a stone or a body tackle, will fire his weapon, killing or wounding an adversary and unleashing an escalatory spiral, fuelled by a storm of nationalism in both countries.

China’s in a serious expansion phase right now and have been for decades so I’m sure they’re working hard to get some serious provocations. I mean, if they’re gonna mess with us why would India give them pause?

Except for supplying arms to India, I would be against getting involved in a land war between India and China. I would be all for blowing up China’s navy if they try to get frisky anywhere but sending Americans into a cauldron of war between countries with more than a billion people would just be stupid.

If the world does blow up, I’m not sure what will happen in EUnuchstan but I say we convince Trump to Executively Order that whoever conquers France has to keep it.

 

My claim to fame was my Letter To The Editor about Elian Gonzalez made the NY Times. It was something like, “I’d say his mother chose where she wanted him to live.” I’m surprised they printed that, their editorial stance was much closer to this, that Babalublog calls “Horrific”

Get ready: CNN is airing a two-hour documentary on the “rescue” of Elian Gonzalez.

Rescue. Condemning that poor bastard to life in a commie shithole gulag is a ‘rescue’ so far as CNN is concerned.

Although…. maybe we could rescue the NYTimesWashPostCNNABCCBSNBCetc. and send them to Cuba! It would be easy, we could have a party on an island for the Elite Who Fakenews and send a 747 to pick them up and take them, we could make it for global worming. Then, we hijack to plane to Cuba! Brilliant!

 

Hillary is still making excuses for her loss, obviously eyeing 2020.

“This is not OK, I thought,” she wrote. “It was the second presidential debate, and Donald Trump was looming behind me. Two days before, the world heard him brag about groping women. Now we were on a small stage, and no matter where I walked, he followed me closely, staring at me, making faces. It was incredibly uncomfortable.

I’m sure she would have been able to stare down Putin! Actually, since what she said is a lie I wouldn’t say she was too weak to be POTUS for that reason, I mean, she’s married to the Groper in Chief, what made her uncomfortable was that Trump refused to accept his role of Good Loser the way a candidate who didn’t fight back would have. Like….ohhhh….. say… the last two Electable Candidates!!!.

Which makes me think of what a bullet we dodged. The fascist Anti-fa fascists would have been very useful for her as we tried to protest her gun-grabbing and money-grabbing actions as Congress Held Hearings!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We’d be in a very dark and dangerous place right now. The place where the fascists in the armed wings of the Dems are pretending we are.

Which reminds me of something I read last week. Someone noted how ironic it was that the new armed wing of the Democratic party (BLM, Anti-Fa, Charlotte Police et al.) were hating on the old armed wing of the Democratic Party (The KKK). That’s funny and endy!

 

Let’s take a break from that crap to take a look at the what the Worst President In the History Of Ever is doing now.

 Lost amid all the political name-calling last week, President Trump’s infrastructure reforms would actually go far toward kick-starting many badly needed projects. And they’ll do so without spending massive amounts of money.

The media made a big deal of Trump on Thursday disbanding his infrastructure advisory board. Given the poisonous politics of the day, it’s not surprising.

But, once again, the media largely missed the far more important story of infrastructure reforms that Trump signed by executive order on Tuesday. While not perfect, they are an enormous improvement on the current wasteful and inefficient federal system.

The good stuff he does isn’t “lost” so much as “hidden”, “Buried” and “denied!!!!!!!!!!”

I watched some of his speech last night, whenever I came in to get a drink of water I listened. At one point he called out the media as the liars they are. I’m sure all Right-Thinking people thought that was gauche and uncouth but it’s fucking necessary.

If he doesn’t nobody else will. All the Right People are against what Trump’s doing far more than against him as a person. I mean, he’s been their friends for decades. The best kind of friend to those venal assholes, he gave them large bribes. Now he’s threatening their corrupt, venal positions so He Must Be Destroyed.

 

I’m sure this will be “lost” too.

Lithuania purchased a large shipment of natural gas Monday from the U.S. to stick a finger in the collective eye of Russia, which has effectively monopolized energy production in former Soviet countries.

The move was likely a political tactic, one meant to show Lithuania and other former Soviet countries are willing to strike out against Russia. Russia’s annexation of Crimea in 2014 put the Baltic states on the defensive.

Russia backfired so anything Trump does to mess with Russia must be hidden, denied and lied about. It’s just good journalism.

 

I don’t like clicking PJ media clickbait because they’re usually idiotic and/or trite, but this one is news at least.

House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady (R-Texas) said Republicans are “fully committed” to passing “pro-growth” and “pro-jobs” tax reform “this year.”

How can I call that news? Aren’t newspapers called fishwrap and isn’t that story wrapped around the fish the GOP is flinging at us?

GOP voters device

Get Ready To Honk For Tax Reform Fish!!!!!!!!! Sure, it’s stinky, but it’s Tax Reform!!!!!!!

Tax reform polls well. Almost as well as repealing Obamacare but they’ve about played out that genre of Failure Theater.

 

I saw some people acting upset about this, but I don’t really see a problem.

Riders who are found doing any of the following are subject to a fine of $75 per offense and could be escorted off the train or bus:

Eating, drinking, smoking, vaping;
Playing loud music;
Disturbing others;
Disorderly, lewd conduct;
Placing chewing gum on seats;
Loitering;
Fare evasion;
Occupying more than one seat or blocking a door; or
Riding a bicycle or skateboard in a station.

I’ve never ridden LA’s metro, but I’d bet they’re doing this for two reasons. There’s an epidemic of rude assholes on their metro who agree with me that the rule of law is dead, they’re just reveling in it instead of upset about it and the Los Angeles gov’t is working a new revenue stream.

This is so California.

It’s not the first time Metro has tried to teach better social etiquette to its riders: in 2003, the agency had “Metro Manners” trading cards designed for presentations to schools in LA County.

Yeah, so how’d that work out for you? Well enough that now it’s at epidemic status!

 

Via Dave Barry we find this bit of….ummmmm…. We’re Not Afraid Enough Of The Japanese.

Sexy Japanese actress strokes turtle head in tourism promotion video drawing complaints

That doesn’t do the vid justice. The idea that they’re upset only about stroking a turtle head just adds to the idea that we’re not afraid enough of the Japanese. It doesn’t even look like a…ummmm…. what is often called a “turtle head”.

 

How do you say WTF? in Japanese?

 

Speaking of hilarious videos, I didn’t go to the riots yesterday, I got lazy. I’m glad I didn’t as I would have gone early afternoon and nothing happened until after dark. The local broadcast was very funny. “We don’t know who started the problems (masked anti-fa assholes running in the background) but protestors were yelling at each other (leftist with bullhorn screeching at Trump people walking into the arena, the only reaction was one guy who put his hands up as he walked. Made me laugh it did), violence at Trump Rally just like last year (when lefties attacked Trump supporters)”

 

They interviewed this one guy who claimed to be hit by a projectile and, to their credit, when he said that he threw the tear gas into traffic they asked him WTF dude? hat guy was all, “We were walking away when the cops got violent!!!!.” The reporter tried to play it up but even they realized his story had more holes than a Clinton lie so they just dropped it.

It’s not the same guy in this link with the top 5 remixes of him getting hit in his non-gender-specific-genitalia.

Pretty darn funny.

 

Where are we?

Important, Let’s Let Mike At Cold Fury Set It Up Instead, Update!!!!!!!!!!!! (act surprised when it gets set up again below)

OBLIGATORY MEALYMOUTHED DISCLAIMER: Sorry folks, ain’t gonna be one here. You can go to panty-soakers like Ramesh Ponnuru on Deface The Nation just now for that sort of pathetic, ineffectual groveling to satisfy whatever need for personal debasement and humiliation you may have. I won’t be issuing any harrumph-harrumph about how horrified I am by the uprising in Charlottesville, and the injury and death that resulted from a long-overdue confrontation with our Leftist tormentors.

Sure, I’d much rather nobody get killed or assaulted. But the Left dragged us all out of that illusory Safe Space long ago; that being the case, if anybody has to get beaten about the head and neck with truncheons or crunched underneath a car, I’d much rather it be them than us.

Read the whole thing, there’s a reason he wins blogging awards every year.

Now, back to our post!

I’ll let Wirecutter set it up.

We’re Here

 There was nothing haphazard about the violence that erupted today in this bucolic town in Virginia’s heartland. At about 10 a.m. today, at one of countless such confrontations, an angry mob of white supremacists formed a battle line across from a group of counter-protesters, many of them older and gray-haired, who had gathered near a church parking lot. On command from their leader, the young men charged and pummeled their ideological foes with abandon. One woman was hurled to the pavement, and the blood from her bruised head was instantly visible.

Standing nearby, an assortment of Virginia State Police troopers and Charlottesville police wearing protective gear watched silently from behind an array of metal barricades — and did nothing.

Where the police stand down to let violently thuggish fascists try to shut down speech they don’t agree with. Just as they did in Berkeley and Chicago and other places.

Where else are we? Or rather, what is Here like? Video showing that guy’s car being attacked before he drove into the crowd killing people.

Department of Memes reported that police officers in Charlottesville believed the driver was not acting maliciously, suggesting he was scared by the protesters on every side of his vehicle and he did not know what to do.

New shocking video has emerged that corroborates this theory…

To recap: The protesters were standing in the middle of the street, blocking traffic. The car was attacked with a blunt object resembling a baseball bat by a protester. The vehicle was not speeding until a the protester attacked and the mob of people closed in on the driver.

Oh that’s great. Are we going to have to defend some racist asshole?

Jebus. What with the media taking sides, we’re gonna have to.

That sucks.

Especially since, as there have been few repercussions for the violent fascist in the laughably named “Anti-Fa” black-shirt, masked brigade, they’re out in force today, trying to shut down speech they don’t like.

The rally, organized by the conservative group Patriot Prayer, came one day afterviolent clashes in Charlottesville, Virginia, that left three people dead and dozens injured.

Counter-protesters — including antifa, Industrial Workers of the World (IWW), Veterans for Peace, Indivisible Seattle, Black Lives Matter, and the Freedom Socialist Party — marched “in solidarity against hate,”  specifically against what they called “the bigotry, racism and violence” of the “far-right” organizers. Solidarity Against Hate counter-protesters waved communist flags, yelled “f*ck America,” squirted police with silly-string, and burned the American flag.

There’s a lot of violence, hate and thuggery when certain groups get together against hate.

This is the shit sandwich on top of the cherry.

Seriously. The guy holding his hands up after punching the speaker in the back was a nice touch. Where were the police? Watching the show. Fucking assholes.
I keep forgetting that in Dem fiefs they’re told to stand down when fascists attack people whose speech their Dem masters don’t like.

That is one of the most disturbing things I’ve seen in my lifetime. The police were not stopping this guy from being assaulted, during a fucking press conference!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!, until after he was tackled. They observed multiple assaults and did not a fucking thing.

That’s where the death of the rule of law is most obvious.

 

Since Dems like Obama and Hillary riled this up, you know Dems are going to be excusing it. No, not just the ones in the media, the elected fuckheads.

“I have a message to all the white supremist [sic] and the Nazis who came into Charlottesville today … You came here today to hurt people and you did hurt people,” McAuliffe told reporters at a press conference Saturday night.

The governor repeatedly emphasized the violence of “nazis” but made no reference to violence by any left-wing group, despite being asked repeatedly about what role such groups may have played in Saturday’s melee. The implication was clear that the violence was an unavoidable result of far-right white identity political groups being allowed to hold a rally.

But a report on police conduct during and after the rally by ProPublica, a left-leaning investigative journalism non-profit, as well as eyewitness accounts by those who participated in the rally itself, have called the simplicity of this characterization into question. Both suggest mismanagement of police resources by political leadership may have exacerbated, rather than controlled, the violence surrounding the rally and the counter-protests, which included mainstream liberals and local faith-based “anti-racism” groups as well as radical leftist “Black Lives Matter” (BLM) and “Anti-Fascist Action” (Antifa) outfits.

The violent Dem front-groups came to get their violence on, if they hadn’t started it it wouldn’t have happened.

Do you realize what this means? There are now people to hate more than Illinois Nazis! Whodaseen that coming?

I learned something new today!

No, not that Markos Moulitsas is a lying sack of hate and anger, but that he was involved in the founding of Vox.

The idiocy of that group makes so much more sense now.

 

I watched some local news last night and saw the end of a Trump presser where some fuckhead, ‘journalist’ asshole shouted, at his back, “Do you think you condemned the violence enough?”

And I saw today the Wash Post echoing that ‘question’. He didn’t condemn the violence enough. Jebus, don’t you fuckheads have to go count how many scoops of ice cream he’s having or something?

 

Let’s look back on when Baltimore was being rioted at by some of the same Dem-Approved, violent, fascist, hate-groups.

Reporters kept out of meeting between Obama and his pet-fascist, Lynch. Just reported, no shouted questions about how he needs to condemn shit.

Another link disappeared, but I wrote at the time

Important, Ironically Powerful Update! Here!

Obama, the nation’s first African-American president, has spoken in personal terms about police harassment. So far, he hasn’t spoken about the unrest in Baltimore, but White House officials say they’re considering releasing a statement to address the situation.

Okay, that’s hilarious. He’s thinking about maybe releasing a statement about Baltimore going up in flames and Minitrue apparently sees no problem with that.

As a city blew up, Obama was nowhere to be seen and now we have the fuckheaded, prejudiced, ill-educated, mis-educated, disinformation spreading media fakenewsing through their lying teeth to make sure ‘their’ side Wins!

 

They’re too fucking stupid to realize that nobody’s gonna win.
Let’s let Kurt Schlichter explain where many on the right are.

Conservatives Must Regulate Google And All of Silicon Valley Into Submission

That means Republicans at both the federal and the state level need to rein in the skinny-jeaned fascist social justice warriors who control Silicon Valley – and, to a growing extent, our society – through the kind of crushing regulation of these private business that we conservatives used to oppose.

They’re going to hate the new rules.

 

A couple years ago I would have been very against that. A year ago I would have kept my mouth shut.

Now? I still think it’s wrong, but I didn’t make the rules the left has decided upon, they did. I look forward to all the whining, mostly because I’ll be saving up spit. Unless they’re on fire, then I’ll save my spit and just point and laugh.

Of course, with the GOP leadership we have now, they’re much more likely to regulate people like me instead of those stalinist assholes so generally law-abiding, peaceful people are going to see that their gov’t is on the side of the thugs trying to destroy the fabric of our nation.

We’re getting closer and closer to the endgame our fine betters spent much of Obama’s reign of error trying to foment.

Yay! Methinks they’re going to find out what most of the rest of us know, it’s not gonna be pretty.

 

Arguing with headlines!!!!!!!!

Obamacare lies resurfacing

Ummm, no. Just because all our betters in DC were ignoring them doesn’t mean they went away. It means the rest of America was busy being fucked while they were ignored.

Speaking of ignoring important shit, How did the DNC IT guys get into the country? ‘

File that under “Questions nobody in our fine media is asking.  Questions our media will call you a hater for asking!”

I saw a bit on the local news about how only haters were against importing Indians via H1-B visas and those people who were upset about having to train their replacements? Obviously just whitely-privileged, men who were upset about losing their primacy!

 

Not much funny today, except the inherent funny in the way the Reality Based Community Who Prides Itself On Their Elitism are showing themselves to be lying, violent fuckheads who have no sense of history, no sense of what makes America an anomaly in the blood-soaked slavery that is human history and no sense of humor that does not involve sodomizing the children of people they don’t like.

Yeah, I’m worked up today. Watching the final nail in the coffin of the rule of law does that to me.

Seriously, it’s just too ridiculous to take seriously.

But we have to take it seriously, cuz we’re stuck in the ridiculousness.

First, let’s update a former ridiculous deal.

As everybody who tries to start any ‘conversation’ that our betters are always talking about finds out, they don’t want a conversation, they want you to accept their harangue.

At least one person was paying attention even as he attempted to get that conversation started.

Damore said that he was exploring all possible legal remedies and that before being fired he had submitted a charge to the US National Labor Relations Board accusing Google upper management of trying to shame him into silence.

“It’s illegal to retaliate against an NLRB charge,” he wrote in the email.

Knowledge is power.

 

FBI raids a prominent political person’s home! We hear about the deal via anonymous, Wash Post, sources, so take it for what it’s worth.

The search warrant seems to indicate that investigators may have had reason to believe Manafort could not be trusted to turn over all of the records requested in response to a grand jury subpoena, the Post reported, citing people familiar with the special counsel investigation.

He might refuse to turn over important docs?

Who does the think he is? Hillary Clinton?!?!?!?!?!

I will say that I think that anonymous source, if it exists, is lying. If it doesn’t exist, it’s just a ‘journalist’ saying what his Never Trump allies have told him to say.

This sounds a lot more likely.

Manafort has been voluntarily producing documents to congressional committees investigating Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election. The search warrant indicates investigators may have argued to a federal judge they had reason to believe Manafort could not be trusted to turn over all records in response to a grand jury subpoena.

It could also have been intended to send a message to President Trump’s former campaign chairman that he should not expect gentle treatment or legal courtesies from Mueller’s team.

Hillary’s Bitches in the FBI and the lawless assholes in the “Justice” Dept are nothing if not vindictive and lawless.

The special counsel is subject to the rules and regulations of the Department of Justice, and we don’t engage in fishing expeditions,” Rosenstein said when asked about the probe in an interview on “Fox News Sunday.”

Liar, The fishing hole was fishless so now they’re trying to manufacture some fish.

 

A Quiz!!!!!!

Who said this

Orange-faced oaf Donald Trump threatens DPRK with “fire and fury,” yet delivers only wind and flatulence.

A. Wash Post/CNN

B. Nancy Pelosi/Chuck Schumer

C. Paul Ryan/Mitch McConnell

D.John McCain/Lyndsey Graham/Susan Collins

E. Fred Barnes/Bill Kristol/Rest of the NRO/Weekly Standard coup-crew?

F.The Norks.

Hah! Trick question. It’s G. All of the above!

But in this case it’s just the Norks channeling their inner Never-Trumper.

 

How much you wanna bet some significant percentage of those ‘likes’ and ‘retweets’ work either for the US federal gov’t (elected, appointed and GS) or our fine media?

Speaking of which, I really didn’t like Trump’s warning. Don’t warn like that, you say, “There will be consequences.”, if you say what you’ll do you have to do it. I don’t want to get involved militarily in North Korea unless it’s absolutely necessary to avert a nuclear war in South Korea.

I really don’t want a war in North Korea. There is no good outcome.

The most likely is war with China, don’t forget they went to war over the Norks with the only POTUS to use nuclear bombs in anger.

And if we win, what does that mean? We have to try to keep 10 million brainwashed slaves alive while we try to educate them about reality. It would make integrating Germany look easy and cheap.

It’ll cost $billions getting them food, $billions starting farms, $billions making power generation plants, $billions distributing that energy and $billions getting them the bare necessities of life like heat and clean water. South Korea can’t do it, the EUnuchs will screech at us as lefties put barriers in place to any modernization, “Haven’t they suffered enough? Now you’re destroying their environment just so they can have TVs?”

It would suck. I blame Truman.

 

 

Blood Batteries.

It heralds a future of clean energy, free from pollution but – though there can be no doubting the good intentions behind Environment Secretary Michael Gove’s announcement last month…

“You had good intentions. Let’s find you a nice job paving roads.”

Dorsen, just eight, is one of 40,000 children working daily in the mines of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). The terrible price they will pay for our clean air is ruined health and a likely early death.

Our clean air? Idiot. The electricity we have to make and transport for vehicles is not made with unicorn farts.

Adult miners dig up to 600ft below the surface using basic tools, without protective clothing or modern machinery. Sometimes the children are sent down into the narrow makeshift chambers where there is constant danger of collapse.

Cobalt is such a health hazard that it has a respiratory disease named after it – cobalt lung, a form of pneumonia which causes coughing and leads to permanent incapacity and even death.

Even simply eating vegetables grown in local soil can cause vomiting and diarrhoea, thyroid damage and fatal lung diseases, while birds and fish cannot survive in the area.

I hate it when religious devotions means children have to die, it’s despicably unlikely but they’ve managed to make Africa an even worse shithole.

 

What the hell?

An earlier report into the crash under Poland’s previous government said the wing smashed into a birch tree close to the runway at the Smolensk military airport, causing the plane to crash.

“Damage to the left wing of the TU 154M was not started by colliding with the birch tree … The wing’s destruction started before the birch tree… [and] much damage to the left wing of the TU 154M plane carry traces of an explosion,” the commission said in a statement on Wednesday.

Who murdered them? It happened in Russia so this looks like a Tsar Putin I operation.

It added that Russian air traffic controllers deliberately misled Polish pilots about their location as they approached the runway of the Smolensk military airport in western Russia on 10 April 2010.

That’s so Putin. But with the US POTUS being all flexible with the Tsar, others were afraid to notice it. Now that the world is afraid of our poofy-haired maniac, maybe things will change.

 

Let’s end on contests. Since it’s so fucking ridiculous out there, you know what we’re gonna get.

First up, lying hack who fakenews wins Industry Award with hilarious reason!

 The National Association of Hispanic Journalists is giving its 2017 Presidential Award to CNN senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta, who has emerged this year as a media star for his frequent clashes with the Trump administration.

Sorta funny so far, here’s where it gets ridiculous.

“For the past years, I’ve seen Jim Acosta in action. He’s covered President Obama and President Donald Trump, always pushing both sides to answer the tough questions,”

Sure, he “pushed” both sides. He pushed Obama’s dick into his mouth with a suckophantic fervor not seen since Debbie did Dallas, he pushes lying fakenews at Trump with a lying fervor not seen since Dan Rather left 60 Minutes.

 

True story, I went to Catholic school from 1st grade to my first year of college. In 7th or 8th grade, in 1976 or so, they had a priest teach us sex-ed. A nun taught the girls. I thought that was hilarious. This one is nearly as funny.

Next Miss Italia will be judged by a priest

I wonder, will Father Guido Sarducci come out of retirement? I hope so, he still owes someone the prize for Finding The Pope In The Pizza contest.  I found a bunch but couldn’t find the Avignon popes. Not sure if they weren’t there or just well hidden.

 

A New Olympics?

Dumoulin won an international competition on Microsoft Excel proficiency, earning $10,000 in prize money along the way.

Bureaucrat Olympics. Next year they’ll do a Powerpoint competition and synchronized stamping.

And its effects on the body politic.

Our fine lefty betters are now officially insane.

That was just before they fired the guy who questioned the leftist orthodoxy.

 

Planned Parenthood is insane.

“How do I talk to my preschooler about their body?” is a set of guidelines published by Planned Parenthood that encourages parents to talk to their young children about their genitals…

While the most simple answer is that girls have vulvas and boys have penises/testicles, that answer isn’t true for every boy and girl. Boy, girl, man, and woman are words that describe gender identity, and some people with the gender identities “boy” or “man” have vulvas, and some with the gender identity “girl” or “woman” have penises/testicles. Your genitals don’t make you a boy or a girl.

Most kids want to pretend they’re elves or wizard or something like that, this is nothing but Munchausen by trans-proxy syndrome. It’s always been depressing watching parents shove their delusions on their children, now it’s a Societal Good.

There are no good outcomes in that bullshit. It’s like ADHD, sure some kids have it, but not the 20% that are medicated to get them to sit down and shut up… diagnosed with it. Except this is even worse as, according to adult actions, the actual number is well under 1%.

Of course, abortionists are insane so they are thinking as if abortion doesn’t go far enough, we need retroactive abortion!

Those who held power over Charlie decided that his life was not worth living. They reached this judgment on the basis of his expected mental disability. They denied him treatment, and ordered his ventilator removed, not because of the burden of the treatment, but because of the burden of his life. In a cruel act proposed by doctors, approved by courts, cheered by the press, and blessed by certain high clerics, Charlie Gard was euthanized. It was euthanasia by omission, but it was euthanasia all the same.

Baal worship is alive and well. Maybe that’s why they’re so pissed off because the Golden Cow lost. False idols are all they have left since losing their tenuous grip on sanity.

 

I wonder how this affects the curve.

A University of Georgia professor has adopted a “stress reduction policy” that will allow students to select their own grades if they “feel unduly stressed” by the ones they earned.

This is the bit that makes it just a little crazier.

Watson—a “Regents Professor” at the university, a title “bestowed by the Board of Regents on truly distinguished faculty”

I’m in favor of this actually, it allows employers to know which colleges’ degrees are utterly worthless because they’re awarded by crazy people.

It’s also a good representation of socialism, this debases the A received by the student who actually tried.

 

‘Journalist’ discovers useful idiots are not part of the ruling elite when socialism morphs into communism.

I had thought that being a foreign reporter protected me from the growing chaos in Venezuela. But with the country unraveling so fast, I was about to learn there was no way to remain insulated…

That’s just stupid, here’s where insanity rears its laughing head.

I was trying to make small talk with the men who had grabbed me when we pulled past a high, barbed wire-topped wall, and I glimpsed the logo of the secret police. Flooded with relief, I realized I hadn’t been kidnapped, just detained.

Oh yay! The secret police have kidnapped me! I’m saved!

Yeah see, Chavez’ secret policeman cum dictator does not really want accurate reports getting out. If you’re not going to explain how it’s all the fault of those ‘protestors’, what with their bleeding all over the place and demanding stuff like toilet paper and food they’re not your friends.

In the end, the secret police cut me loose a few hours after they arrested me, with a warning not to return to the city of Barinas. The burly men put me in the same black SUV and drove me to the airport, then watched with crossed arms as I boarded the plane to Caracas.

Showing how impervious willful ignorance and lack of sanity leads to self-delusion

Finally, this summer, I decided to leave the country on my own accord,

Of her own accord. I guess. She could have stayed and been murderously dictated at, but she decided, totally unrelatedly, to leave!

One definition of insanity is doing the same commie things over and over and expecting it to work this time.

This time, This Time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! communism is going to work!

 I suggested things might get back to normal before too long.

Not until they get a Pinochet to kill all the commies in the country.

 

Via David Thompson, we see insanity in Akbar Britain.

While that statement is arguably correct, it’s another way, it’s arguably insane to think it’s a good option.

It might be better than being under Sharia law, which appears to be the other option Brit pols want, but I prefer freedom. I’m monomaniacal about that sort of thing.

Speaking of which, I’ll quibble with this.

John Gill tried to do it right!

Capt Kirk was having none of it though. Like Communism, fascism always fails. Its only accomplishment, which is in dispute, was getting the trains to run on time in Italy. Its actual accomplishment is murdering a number of people within an order of magnitude of those murdered by commie dictators. That’s an accomplishment. Not a good one, but that’s all you get out of leftism. Murderous dictators.

Speaking of Crazy Talk!, I’ve been saying that we need to fire everybody in the DO”J” GS-12 and higher and replace them with Free Republic commenters. While it might be awesomely entertaining, I realized how crazy that is.

Judicial Watch announced it sent a notice-of-violation letter to the state of California and 11 of its counties threatening to sue in federal court if it does not clean its voter registration lists as mandated by the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA). Both the NVRA and the federal Help America Vote Act require states to take reasonable steps to maintain accurate voting rolls. The August 1 letter was sent on behalf of several Judicial Watch California supporters and the Election Integrity Project California, Inc.

We should just disband the entire DO”J” and replace them all with Judicial Watch!

I know, that looks like crazy talk!, but bear with me.

 In the letter, it is noted that public records indicate the following counties have more registered voters than voting-age citizens:

  • San Diego (138%)

  • San Francisco (114%)

  • Los Angeles (112%)

  • San Mateo (111%)

  • Solano (111%)

  • Yolo (110%)

  • Santa Cruz (109%)

  • Monterey (104%)

  • Imperial (102%)

  • Lassen (102%)

  • Stanislaus (102%)

Not so crazy now, huh?

Remember when Trump was a lying liar who lied because he noted that Hillary’s totals were padded with illegal voters? So crazy it might be true!

 

I’d say this is totally crazy.

For the first time in its history, the Second Amendment Foundation today issued a “travel advisory” to firearms owners to avoid going to California, warning law-abiding armed citizens that their civil rights could be in jeopardy due to that state’s restrictive gun control laws.

In CA they’re doing something surprising, they’re trying to use the law, socialist dictators usually pervert the law. In light of that, I’d have a warning about going to NJ where they will illegally take your legally owned guns if you’re legally carrying them while legally travelling through the states.

It’ll then take you years and a lot of money to get your property back from the thugs in NJ. If you’re lucky, your case will cause enough of a stink that Christie will throw you a bone… pardon you. But since he does not spend all his days pardoning people it would just be crazy to even drive through NJ with your legally owned property.

 

You can tell someone is an idiot or insane.

It was supposed to be a dazzling opportunity for the Santa Monica Symphony Orchestra — a volunteer ensemble of professional and semiprofessional musicians led by Guido Lamell — to play the prestigious Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles for a fund-raiser. Mr. Lamell, music director of the orchestra, invited the conservative talk show host and columnist Dennis Prager as guest conductor for the event…

But that decision caused immediate outrage among some members of the symphony, and a number of them are refusing to play the fund-raiser…

Some are even encouraging others not to attend the concert.

How can anybody still think that all that talk of Tolerance by our fine Tolerant, Mostly-Peaceful friends is about tolerance for other points of view?

That’s beyond stupid all the way into delusion.

 

My neighbor in my old apt is a paranoid schizophrenic who is just paranoid with medication. It’s weird, he’s paranoid about all the wrong things but he thinks I’m too paranoid! No really, he does.

So the point, he makes less than $1,000/month in disability but keeps getting new credit cards. He must have close to $20k in credit card debt. There is no way in hell he can pay it all back. But he can still get another credit card whenever he wants, and does.

American consumers just hit a scary milestone.

They now collectively have the most outstanding revolving debt — often summarized as credit card debt — in U.S. history, according to a report Monday released by the Federal Reserve. Americans had $1.021 trillion in outstanding revolving credit in June 2017. This beats the previous record in April 2008, when consumers had a collective $1.02 trillion in outstanding credit revolving credit.

So who’s crazy, the people ignoring that giving too much credit to people who cannot possibly pay it back is a good idea or the crazy guy who keeps taking that money?

Let’s look at that definition of insanity, doing everything the same and expecting a different outcome. In the late 20s we had a problem with debt. We know where that led, in 2008 we had another problem with insane debt dragging us down.

And here we are, giving out too much credit and not expecting bad things to happen.

 

I’m not sure if this is like some NY Times’ writer’s “taxi driver” who is used to push an elitist point or if Rush’ chef is really this crazy/stupid.

It was the chef. The chef came in this morning about 10:15, and the chef is a huge Trumpist. The chef just loves Trump, and the chef is, “Did you see that rally last night? Did you see that speech? Did you see those people?”

I (Rush) said, “Yeah.”

“I mean, do you know those people in Washington, when they watch that, they’re just gonna have to come around. They’re gonna have to know that people love him.”

Really? Based on what reality? They hate us and they hate him. They already know we love him, that’s just proof that we’re too dim to run our own lives.

Rush is not insane, he’s finally realized the GOP is not on his side.

Ah, ah, ah, no. No. That, unfortunately, is not what will happen.” What happened already is the people in Washington who saw that rally in West Virginia last night hate Trump even more and are even more committed to getting rid of him, if that’s possible. This is standard operating procedure. This is human nature. And here’s why, folks.

Exactly. Human nature wins every time.

Rush also sees the doves in DC for who they are

Coup Coup

Not only is the D.C. swamp attempting to run a coup on President Trump to get him out of there, what they’re really trying to do is deny your choice of president. This is a genuine constitutional threat because what official Washington is really trying to do is ultimately claim it doesn’t matter who you vote for. If they don’t like it, they’re gonna do everything they can to nullify it or cancel it. The Constitution doesn’t matter.

We’re threatening their feed troughs and power over us, that’s something any self-respecting oligarch is going to have to quash.

 

McConnell’s insane if he thinks is going to get anybody but The Better And Smarter Than You apparatchiks to honk their horns and slap their fins.

In his first Kentucky appearance since the fake vote on the fake repeal of Obamacare last month, McConnell announced that fellow lying liar Lamar Alexander (R-TN) would be teaming up with Senator Patty Murray (D-WA) to create a bill that will continue using money we don’t have to subsidize insurance we don’t want until 2018.

If Murray’s name sounds familiar, it should. She’s one of the GOP’s favorite “go-to” Democrats when selling out on campaign promises. It was Murray who joined Paul Ryan a few years ago to pass the failed Bipartisan Budget Act of 2013. Despite their promise to cut the budget, Ryan and Murray’s failed budget agreement increased spending, raised taxes, and threw out any attempt to balance the books for two years.

No arfs for you!

 

Speaking of which, this is not crazy.

 

In Sin City one of the bad guys says something like, “If they can make you lie for them they have you by the balls. They own you.”

It’s an old totalitarian trick – you break the will and the spirit of your enemies by forcing them to say, over and over again, what they and everyone knows to be false. After all, truth-telling is the province of the free and the proud, not the enslaved and the humiliated.

That’s why when my leftist family says, “You disagree with everybody, doesn’t that mean you’re wrong?”

I’ve been right far too often when my family declared me wrong for me to think any such thing. They still hate Ronnie Raygun for weakening America.

I harp on Apple and, to a lesser extent, Google, Yahoo and some others, in relation to doing business in China. I know most big businesses do so, but I think it’s crazy and stupid to expect it to work in any sort of long-run.

In the short run, Sainted Apple, Yahoo and Google help the murderous commie dictators in China be murderous dictators.

Tech giant Apple Inc. is increasingly caving to the demands of communist China..

Apple rang in the New Year by removing The New York Times app from its Chinese app store, complying with a request from Chinese government regulators. In mid-July, the company announced that it is building a data center in China to adhere to the country’s autocratic new cybersecurity laws, which gives China the ability to seize information on possible political dissidents and potentially pilfer foreign technology. Apple also removed Virtual Private Networks (VPNs), software essential for Chinese users who desire internet freedom and the ability to jump “the Great Firewall of China,” from its app store later last month, capitulating to Chinese government demands.

That’s cuz they’re commmie. China I mean, Apple is just helping them Try Communism Right!

 

Speaking of insanity…

Dateline: Memphis/Athens/Rome

Americans across the U.S. will see the country’s first coast-to-coast solar eclipse in 99 years. While millions of people get ready to watch the Aug. 21 eclipse, local authorities are the treating the event more like a natural disaster and are preparing for the worst.

No, not Memphis, Tennessee, Athens, Georgia and Rome, NY, I mean Memphis Egypt, circa 4,000 BC, Athens, Greece circa 500BC and Rome, Rome, circa 0AD.

People are people are people are fucking insane. If there’s one thing people are drawn toward it’s a good doomsday cult.

I do wonder if global worming will combine with the eclipse to Kill Us All!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?

I really need to start a lefty website. I could come up with idiocies that are positive reinforcement for lefties’ insanities and cash in on all that sweet, sweet, George Soros money. The fucking Kochs don’t give me shit.

 

Maybe I’m crazy, but I’m gonna disagree on this.

Today’s teenagers are more sheltered and less independent than previous generations, and the shifts correspond with the mainstreaming of smartphones around 2012. Instead of going out with friends and looking for every chance to get away from their parents, the post-Millennial generation is staying in and Snapchatting—and it’s making them less happy.

My nieces and nephews are all over 20, a couple approaching 30. When visiting my sisters I noticed that their kids did not play the way we did and it was long before they all had smart phones.

They were constantly underfoot, they wouldn’t leave us alone. I remember thinking how weird that was.

When I was a kid I spent most of my time trying to keep adults from knowing what I was doing. I left in the morning and came back for lunch, for dinner and then when it got dark. When we visited my uncles’ and aunts’ houses, I and my cousins immediately disappeared. We had serious trouble to get into, having parents around crimped my style. How could I get blood all over my clothes with them watching?

Adults do the same freaking thing with smartphones, how many of us have seen pics of a family eating dinner out and all of them looking at their smartphones? So that smartphone/unhappy trend is across age lines, hovering around your parents is a totally different, unhealthy (IMO), trend.

 

Okay, do you have to be crazy or stupid to use this site?

An Australian website allows internet users to test out passwords before using them to see if they were leaked in one of the many data breaches in recent years.

I wonder if you have to give them all your credit card numbers, expiration dates and three digit code on the back to see if they’ve been stolen too?

If a breach is detected in your online security when using HIBP, the site will specify what information is at risk (email addresses, passwords, credit cards etc.) so you can take appropriate action, such as changing passwords.

Heh. I wonder if they help you create a new, Totally Unbreakable!!!!! password?

Reminds me of a thumb drive I got. It was made in murderously commie China and it came with Unbreakable Security!!!!! Just click here and your drive will be totally secure!!!!!!!!!!

Maybe I was too paranoid, but I deleted that shit before I put anything on it. I tried to make sure the thing was totally blank, not sure if I did. Maybe I’m crazy but I don’t answer emails from Nigerian princes and I don’t accept security from commies.

 

So… who would be more upset. her blind date who shows up and sees this or the cat?

Fluffy is not amused.

 

I wonder, do you have to be a woman?

The company’s adverts showed a line-up of cartoon women in their underwear with the slogan “The whole city is looking for BREASTS”. It listed discounts for women depending on their cup size, with greater offers available to women with bigger busts.

Cuz with my bra size, I’d be eating for free! Moobs for the win!

How do you say, “I identify as a woman” in Mandarin?

 

State of my Gs.

I turn my tablet to airplane mode when I get done tubing but I left it on one night, all night. A couple days later I was at 75% of my usage. It took more than a week for me to get to 90% usage, so it seems I have enough Gs for a month, so long as I don’t forget to turn it off.

This month I’m going to run out of Gs and be forced to go to 2G or pay extra. I’ll probably pay the extra. 2G sucks. I still have most of my phone’s Gs so I have that going for me, but I’m surely going to run out long before my month starts over.

 

TV without cable.

I’m going to have to go to a bar to watch MNF and if I want to watch the Giants on an out of market deal, but I’m pretty happy.

I have maybe 10 channels I watch and they don’t all have the same commercial schedule. One Spanish language channel shows action movies. I watched The Expendables the other day, you lose not a thing by not understanding what they’re saying. Hell, it probably enhances the experience as the dialogue is mostly stupid.

I watch Grit most. during the afternoon they have Death Valley Days. About every 3rd or 4th show is filmed in Apache Junction. It’s funny, I can often spot where they are. It looks different but that’s mostly because they paved a lot of roads in the last 50 years.

Looking at the news we see a lot that we all saw and knew that is becoming too obvious to ignore and other stuff we saw and thought we knew but were wrong.

Of course, the ‘wrong’ category was usually that we weren’t paranoid enough.

 

This one really makes me feel stupid, maybe federalism really is all about slavery?!?!?!?!

California’s top labor law enforcer wants federal immigration agents to stay away from offices where state investigators weigh claims about underpaid employees and workplace retaliation.

Not technically slavery, but importing low-wage workers from areas with a fairly uniform population is about the same, this time it’s Hispanics instead of blacks, and they make them pay for their own crappy houses and cheap food, but the result is the same. A class of similar looking workers who do what they’re told.

Her directive followed three instances over the past 10 months in which immigration agents sought information about California workers who had filed claims against employers. In two cases, immigration agents attempted to attend hearings where investigators discuss claims with workers and their employers, Su said. In all three cases, the agents left when they were asked, she said.

They screw them cuz they’re illegal and can’t resort to the law against a politically powerful boss (one that gives donations to CA pols). They can’t whip them but this ridiculous century is young and the forces of Tolerance and Mostly Peace can justify a lot of evil in the name of Tolerance and Fairness.

 

I don’t know if this counts as being wrong, it is very cool though. I’ve been harping on the “Low Unemployment!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! with 100,000,000 who’ve given even looking for work that aren’t counted But now we see this.

 few hours later, the Labor Department’s Bureau of Labor Statistics said the economy added 209,000 jobs in July; the number of employed people jumped by 345,000 to 153,513,000 in July, setting a third straight monthly record; the number of Americans counted as not in the labor force, meaning they don’t have a job and are not looking for one, dropped for a third straight month to 94,657,000; and the nation’s unemployment rate also dropped a tenth of a point, to 4.3 percent.

That’s Winning!, are sick of it yet? I know someone who is.

Drop in Unemployment Rate: All About the Rounding

“The unemployment rate to three decimals was virtually unchanged at 4.350% versus 4.357% last month, but after rounding fell by one-tenth to 4.3%”

We’ll file that under Stuff That Is Only Written When A Republican (Or Trump) Is POTUS. But then, we all know that shit is just business as usual for our fine media betters.

 

China likes what the Norks are doing, they are even directing it IMO. How else can the Norks get such impressive hackers? They also seem to keep on keeping on even though there are SANCTIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!

A North Korea defector has revealed how the dictatorship manages to bypass international sanctions and fund it’s nuclear weapons programme.

Ri Jong Ho, 59, had been raising money for the regime for decades, but defected in 2014 and now lives in Virginia, U.S.

He says UN sanctions against North Korea is futile as Pyongyang has long been able to work their way around attempts to cut off trade…

A major part of his job was helping to ferry ‘between $50 million and $100 million’ from China to North Korea, he told CNN…

Another thing it shows, that we all knew when we were trying it on Saddam’s Iraq,  sanctions don’t hurt murderous dictators, they screw Teh Peepul*

However, he added, the general population never benefit from these money transfers, as the money is used to fund the lavish lives of Kim, his family and the Pyongyang elite.

The other thing that shows that I say I know but others dispute is that there is no such thing as International Law. Chinese companies are owned by the State, pretending they’re like companies in free nations is ridiculous, they do what the gov’t wants.

He said that when a North Korean company is banned from trading with China, the government simply changes the name of the company and the relationship is resumed – and the Chinese companies are only interested in profits.

There can be no law without a credible enforcement mechanism. The ICC in the Hague is about useless. They found against China in the South China Sea a year ago and it changed…not a fucking thing except for people who pretend Internation Law is a thing to say, “See! The system works!!!!”, except it didn’t. If you can’t force murderous dictators to follow International Law, it’s not real law.

 

*I would not class Cuba’s sanctions in that as other countries can sell to Cuba, that’s an American only sanction.

 

 

Ace writes about Sessions going after leakers and sez

The problem is: So many executive employees are leaking that any investigation will undoubtedly turn up friends of the investigators. And the investigators themselves may be leakers.

(Does anyone think the leaker James Comey was obeying the president’s order to find the leakers?)

So, I don’t know if you trust anyone currently in the government to aggressively investigate their John McCain-style Good Friends.

What I know is that if there are people, there are factions that don’t like each other.

What Sessions needs to do is get some bureaucratic cliques to go after each other. Get one guy to tell you which assholes he hates are leaking, then they’ll tell you the first asshole was leaking.

Divide and conquer, they’ll supply the division, you supply the conquering. Pretty soon you put all the Obama leftovers in jail where they belong to clear out room for the next set of assholes. Hopefully they’ll hate Americans less.

 

Okay, I knew this was obstruction of justice, I also knew Debbie Wasserman Schultz was an idiot, I didn’t realize she’d loudly proclaim both things in one sentence.

She threatened “consequences” on May 18  for the chief of the Capitol Police unless the laptop was returned — despite police contending it was needed to help determine whether a staffer may have violated the House’s cybersecurity.

“This was not my laptop. I have never seen that laptop. I don’t know what’s on the laptop,” she said Thursday. She said it was Imran’s laptop but purchased using taxpayer funds from her office.

So it wasn’t hers? That means she inserted herself into a criminal investigation for a third party.

Don’t get me wrong, like you I know we don’t have a rule of law for prominent Dems so she won’t pay for it except possibly electorally, but admitting felony obstruction of justice is still even more stupid than I figured she would be.

 

I already knew this was my favorite Light For Darkness, we see this, which I already knew

Border security agents estimate upwards of 500 migrants a day are now breaching Canada’s border by walking along a dirt crossing into the Quebec town of Saint-Bernard-de-Lacolle.

Once there, they get what they want.

They get arrested, thereby opening the door to claiming refugee status, safe haven, and welfare benefits that will be paid through the property taxes of whatever municipality becomes their home.

Gaming Canada’s system is very easy, if you don’t have identification so they can’t figure out where you’re from, they can’t deport you for instance.

I also knew Trudeau was a lefty fool. But what I didn’t know was exactly how lefty and how foolish. This is the graphic used by Our Light.

Seriously? Canada has a core identity, they’re Not America. Just ask any Canadian in Europe.

 

Coup Coup

We all knew this, but more are starting to notice it.

Since the election there has been an unprecedented attempt to unwind the election result. Events have accelerated on several fronts lately with attempts from outside and within to paralyze the Trump administration…

All the while, the permanent bureaucracy, particularly in the intelligence community, started an unending and almost daily series of leaks meant to paralyze the administration…

That concept of a silent of slow-motion coup would be picked up as the effort against Trump accelerated, as I wrote on May 18, 2017, Some dare call the anti-Trump feeding frenzy a “coup” attempt.

It’s getting too blatant. Our fine betters really seem to think that if they Get Rid Of Trump we’ll all give up and go back to sleep.

Too late, the part of America that makes it work are Woke too.

 

What we all knew but that Shep Smith and other ignorant and foolish lefties claimed was A Lie By Trump!!!!!!!

Four state Registry of Motor Vehicle clerks along with two other people were arrested Wednesday after authorities say they were making false identifications through the registry and selling them to people living in the country illegally, some of whom had been deported in the past.

Some of those phony licenses and identifications were used to fraudulently register to vote in Boston, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

By ‘some’, I’d bet this “journolist” means, “Most”. The Dems and their media arm were busy encouraging it after all.

But Trump Was Racist And A Liar When He Pointed Out What We All Knew!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

The FBI are Hillary’s Bitches! and the media did everything they could to hide Hillary’s feloniosities!

A new email dump from the FBI via a FOIA request by the ACLJ reveals what appears to be collusion between the media and the DOJ to squash the story about the 2016 meeting between Loretta Lynch and Bill Clinton on the tarmac in Phoenix, AZ.

Also Comey reportedly said the FBI had no documents related to this meeting to fill a prior FOIA request. That apparently isn’t true, given this new email dump.

Well, duh. We watched that shit Live! On TV!.

It’s pretty endy and funny that the Dept. of “Justice” was doing everything they could to forestall justice and the media, supposed disseminater of news, was hiding the news. The collusion angle is what gives it that extra ooomph.

 

Okay, this one we all knew and Krauthammer knows it as well since he’s one of the ones he’s talking about.

Fox News commentator Charles Krauthammer warned Thursday night that members of the political establishment, including some Republicans, are angling to remove President Trump from office.

That’s very Clintonian. Admit as little as is proven but deny what can be implausibly denied.

‘Sure, some Republicans want Trump, but not all or even most!’ when it’s all of the DC set, whether GOP pols or conservative “Thinkers”. Krauthammer is a Never-Trumper in good standing after all.

 

Okay, this one just makes me laugh. After so long trying to conflate legal and illegal immigration, our fine betters have managed to make Americans accept that they are the same!

Roughly sixty percent of surveyed respondents want to stop all legal and illegal immigration, says a pair of sophisticated polls which allowed people to speak their mind without fear of progressives’ hate.

Mission Accomplished!

It’s funny that these polls implicitly accept that we are no longer allowed free speech by our fine Tolerant and Mostly-Peaceful countryxhim.

 

This one you would think we didn’t know,

A LOCAL council has banned the construction of a synagogue in Bondi because it could be a terrorist target,

But we did know that! As everyone knows, and Australia is entirely peopled with criminals, therefore they would surely be all in on the Felon’s Veto!

I don’t know enough about Australia to know if there will be heavy blowback on this but I hope so. In a free nation you really should give The Bitch the right to Ask Fer It!!!!, don’t you think?

 

Nother endy and funny deal.

The Honolulu Civil Beat coined a new term with this headline: NY Congressman Wants To Take Away Hawaii’s Gun-Control Rights.

Gun Control Rights, it’s right there in the Constitution! It’s in the Pursuit of Happiness clause.

Today’s Puritans have to pursue our happiness.

 

I knew that everything we thought was normal as little as a few months ago is now a hate-crime, but I didn’t realize it would get this ridiculous this soon.

…Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) have assigned films a rating (i.e. G, PG, PG-13, etc.) based on their age appropriateness level.

But one group is seeking to add a new criteria to those age-inappropriate themes: gender roles.

 

As little as 10 years ago it was exactly the opposite. Hell, 50 years ago you could barely talk about that stuff in a non-X-Rated movie.

In theory, the system is quite simple: a film will be awarded the organisation’s seal of approval if it presents characters that defy gender stereotypes. Films designed for early childhood (between the ages of two and six) should depict boys and girls as friends and equals. By the time of early adolescence (between 11 and 13), films must demonstrate that worth is based on more than just physical beauty…

…CSM system increases accountability: “people making these products are sure they’re gender-balanced when they’re profoundly not.”

The problem with this bit of indoctrination is that they’re trying to change human nature by browbeating us.

We need something like Moore’s law that processor speeds for computers will double every two years, except for lefties.

Veeshir’s Nother Law: Lefty ridiculousness will double every time you pay attention to what they’re saying.

 

I didn’t realize football started last night, it did show me something that we all know but that our fine betters are refusing to know, We Want To Watch Football, We Don’t Want To Be Proselytized At.

I flipped past the game, it was in the middle of the 4th quarter with future truck drives playing against future supermarket workers and the announcers on NBC, Chris Collingsworth and whoever, were talking about how someone really needed to sign Colin Kaepernik because he’s what they need! Whenever a QB is injured, they said, Kaepernik Should Be In The Conversation.

They should be asking exactly the opposite question but they’re still denying that football fans don’t want to listen to your politics, we want to watch fucking football.

 

Okay, this one just bothers me cuz, while I have a low opinion of NYC people in general, this is just ignorant.

Though of course bread and butter are eaten all over, the buttered roll (or roll with butter, as it is known in parts of New Jersey) is a distinctly local phenomenon. Mention its name outside the New York metropolitan area and you would very likely be met with blank incomprehension.

He says, ‘NY metro area’ cuz he’s parochial and doesn’t get to upstate NY much. James Lileks, who I like, ignorantly responds

A Buttered. Roll.

I’ll grant you this: we didn’t have Buttered Rolls as such in Fargo. We had Rolls, with Butter. Perhaps that’s the difference. But when you went down to coffee in the basement after church, you got some rolls – often the type that split apart into three segments – and you put butter on them. Any holiday dinner, any family meal large enough to require a Relish Tray – rolls, with butter.

Yeah,  they do that in NY too, but nowhere outside NYS and the states around NYC are they laid out in the morning at every place that sells coffee.

Heaps of buttered hard rolls ready to pick up with your coffee att every place that sells coffee, except Dunkin Donuts and Krispy Kreme, they’re right next to the self-service coffee station.

I don’t see that anywhere else in the country. Most places that sell coffee don’t even have hard rolls unless they also sell sandwiches and it often takes far too long to explain that I just want a buttered fucking roll for my fucking coffee.

When I first starting traveling outside NY I used to ask all the time and people would look at me as if I was crazy, now I don’t even bother. Especially since it’s usually in the morning before I’ve had my fucking coffee. I have a low tolerance for people before I’ve had my coffee. Okay, lower tolerance.

I buy lots of french and italian bread and rolls so I make them at home but when I’m driving across the country all I want is a fucking buttered fucking roll and it’s fucking too much to fucking ask.

Sorry, pet peeve.

David, can I call you David?, Don’t look back in anger. It reduces the quality of the now, look back and laugh. It doesn’t make now any better but at least you’re laughing!

 

Look back and recall the laughs we had when Usubstantiated!!!!, Incidental!!!!!!!!! and Inadvertent!!!!!!!!!!! were the Journolist Words Of The Day

Nunes disclosed in his letter that the former Obama administration had “easy access” to sensitive classified information and that they may have used it to “achieve partisan political purposes, including the selective, anonymous leaking of such information.”

Congressional investigators uncovered that “one official [whose] position has no apparent intelligence-related function”—now believed to be Power—”made hundreds of unmasking requests during the final year of the Obama administration.”

Hmmmm, so there was spying on Trump, it was purposely leaked so that makes claims that Trump’s peeps were not targeted look like lies.

Why…. that looks astonishingly like Chicago-Machine-Politics?!?!?!?!?!?(!?!?!?!?!?!????????)

It doesn’t make a difference if it was Powers, Hillary’s Bitches in the FBI, whichever anti-American asshole collected a check for ‘being’ NSA or Joe fucking Biden, there was no legitimate reason to do that. The only reason was political.

It’s surprisingly easy to figure out what’s a real scandal for the Democratic party. If it looks like a conspiracy theory and they don’t report it, it’s true, if they harp on it, like Obama’s birth certificate deal, it’s not true.

 

We have to look back to Agree With Headlines But Disagree With The Body! (first in a series!)

McConnell Criticized For Pelosi-Like Tactics On Health Bill

I agree!

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is facing questions about his leadership after the Obamacare repeal debacle. Many Republican senators are criticizing McConnell’s strategy of crafting the bill in secret without input from members of the GOP caucus.

They did that shit for opposite reasons in relation to the legislation, Nancy wanted to pass the bill, McConnell wanted to not pass the bill. If you’re focused on fucking McCain and Collins, don’t. If Pass had more votes, more GOP senators would have happily voted no.

So the body of the article should read

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.DC) is facing questions about his leadership being a lying fuckhead after the Obamacare repeal debacle gambit. Many A Bunch of fish-throwing Republican senators are criticizing McConnell’s strategy of crafting the bill in secret without input from members of the GOP caucus to make sure Obamacare is the Law(less) of the Land. 

Same tactics, same endgame. Fuck Us!

 

You’d think we would be able to look back in anger what with all  the cameras following us around wherever we go. You’d be wrong to think that.

Regarding that abysmal clearance rate on CTA property, a reader had a good question:
Millions of dollars on cameras covering almost every inch of trains, buses, platforms and stations – and 90% of crime goes unsolved? Were taxpayers sold a bill of goods?

That’s a good point. I’d bet that thugs and criminals have known that for a while now. When one keeps not getting arrested even though he committed his crime Live! On TV! he’ll notice something so he’ll tell two accomplices and they’ll tell two accomplices and they’ll tell….

 

We’ll take time out from not looking back in anger to Look Back In Fucking Anger at one of Obama’s self-described Success Stories

More than one million malnourished young children in war-torn Yemen are at risk of cholera, the charity Save the Children warned on Wednesday as it began sending more health experts to the worst-hit areas.

Sonomabatch. Recall when Obama declared Yemen a success story.

He boned us, but he boned the rest of the world even more. Which is sorta scary, most places do not get even more ridiculous when their leaders are too ridiculous to be believed, they go the other route. They go all too real, like commies, nazis and garden-variety warlords. And middle ages diseases. Jebus.

 

We’re still not looking back in anger, let’s Look At Now In Anger! Get out your squeezy bulbs!

GOP voters device

Ben Rhodes Is A Person Of Interested In A House Hearing!!!!!!!! (who cares what it was about?)

House Freedom (FREEDOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) Caucus Member (singular) Calls For Mueller’s Resignation!!!!!!!!

House Judiciary Committee Wants To Investigate Hillary!!!!

I could go on all day, but until it’s the Dept of Justice, not the Dept of “Justice”, it don’t mean shit. It means worse than shit.

Cuz it’s being thrown in our faces.

 

 

ABCNews looks back and I’m confused.

Foreign automakers have received billions of dollars in subsidies and tax incentives to build factories in the U.S. and create American jobs.

A new CBS News primetime series, “CBSN: On Assignment,” uncovers the hidden foreign workforce being used to build sections of U.S. auto plants. The show premieres on CBS on Monday, July 31 at 10 p.m. EST & PST, streaming simultaneously on CBSN, the network’s streaming news service.

For three years, Gerald Greiner managed safety on American construction projects for a German contractor called Eisenmann. His first job was at Mercedes in Vance, Alabama in 2013.

They did that investigation when Obama was POTUS. Why? At first I figured they were trying to make Trump look bad by reporting it, but it makes Trump look good.

Has anybody seen this on any TV news? I’m pretty surprised they even did that investigation, it seems like the kind of thing that got Cheryl Atkinsson  and some others fired.

Weird, good, but weird.

 

Brett Bozell of Media Research Center sez:

The media need to know, when reporting on Senator Flake and his “book,” that the author is a deceiver out for personal and financial gain.  I also call on my conservative brethren to denounce this impostor, who dishonorably claims to speak for conservatism, in the strongest possible terms.

 

Bozell’s in California, right? They have legal weed right? He’s been paying far too much attention to Minitrue and Congress for more than a decade to expect anything of the sort. I’m not against it, but it’s tilting at particularly annoying and willfully ignorant windmills.

While I’m For tilting at windmills, sooner or later Don Quixote is going to win, usually you just get ground down for grain… or something I don’t know I lost the metaphor a little while ago.

 

Here’s something can look back in laughter in a few months.

A Virginia Republican challenging Rep. Barbara Comstock in the party’s primary has spent the past couple of months posting about penis enlargement techniques on his personal website.

If this hits the Va news he should go with it, At least you know I’m not A Big Dick, unlike the rest of the GOP.

Of course his opponent could go with it as well, “My opponent wants to go to DC so he can be a big dick like Paul Ryan!”

 

Historically White, Upper-Class, Ivy League, University Has Panel On White Privilege. Following link to link to link we find this

The event, in its second year, drew 300 participants that mostly consisted of K-12 teachers and principals, the institute’s director Amy Wells said in a phone interview with The College Fix. The four-day conference included plenary sessions, dozens of workshops and dialogue sessions.

One presentation, called “Whiteness in schools,” provided “a history of Whiteness…

I don’t really care, I just hope at least one Powerpoint presentation had this picture.

 

Not cuz I care, just cuz  you know the participants in this idiocy would look back in Furious Anger while I want to look back in laughter.

 

Speaking of whiteness, arrogance and taints, let’s Look Now In Laughter

UNC’s arrogance over academic scandal has tainted the school’s once-great image

From 1993 through 2011, about 3,100 UNC students – nearly half of whom were athletes – took African studies classes that proved to be bogus. Classes generally did not meet; homework was not assigned.

Most required little work – a simple term paper at the end of the semester often sufficed.

UNC hired attorney Kenneth Wainstein to investigate, and he found that about 40 percent of those term papers were at least in part plagiarized, yet were accorded an average grade of A-minus.

Can we discuss the racism inherent in the system?

If I had substituted “wymyn” for “athlete” and “Wymyn’s Studies” or “Gender Studies” for “African studies” would that paragraph have been any different?

Of course it would have! That’s not “Arrogant”, that’s “Empowerment!” and it wouldn’t be a scandal.

It would still be full of taints.

 

I will honk and even arf for this fish that Trump is throwing.

Officials with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) signed a waiver of environmental regulations on Tuesday to allow construction of upgrades to the border wall and new wall prototype projects to break ground.

Hell, forget arfin and honkin’, I had to cut-n-paste that one-handed.

 

I hate to look back in anger, but that Yemen shit pissed me off. Updated cuz I checkedThis is the first “Obama’s Fault” I’ve posted since January (I think, I meant not to do that). Not even close. 

Fuckhead pissed me off today.

 

I’ve been driving the Caballero and it’s been nice. The A/C ain’t working, but I’ve mostly driven it at night. Today is not bad, it’s overcast and rainy so it was only about 95 when I had to run to AJ.

On the highway back from I heard a bad noise, for a second I thought it was engine related but then realized it sounded like something was dragging. I pulled over and when I stopped, it stopped. I was happy. I left the engine running when I got out.

When I opened the door the noise started again, for just a second I thought, “Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck!!!!!!!!!!!!! ME!” but it was just the side molding from the door that was dragging.

I can look back in laughter, it wasn’t so funny for a split second.
