There are a number of physical constants that we use to make sure we’re in the real universe, stuff like speed of light and the electric constant, other people use different baselines.

Like California.

They promised that gas taxes would only be used for Infrastructure!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! projects. Needless to say, they lied.

Sac Dems already breaking promise to fix our roads with massive gas tax increase by diverting those dollars to non-transportation items!

So…they’re going broke in a big way, what with spending ridiculous amounts on ridiculous things (like bike paths below the dam they’re ignoring), so what do CA pols do?

A California Senate committee tasked with reviewing bills that spend state money passed a $400 billion universal health care proposal Thursday with no funding plan.

That’s right! Vote for a huge, new, $multi-hundred-billion entitlement! And since they claim it’s $400 billion, you know the price tag is actually at least $trillion.

That’s just a committee, but I figure there has to be a 60/40 chance they’ll approve it. As someone, Mark Steyn?, wrote about Gov Moonbeam, they don’t have policies, they have dreams.

 

And their dreams are really dystopian. As they’re busy making legal guns illegal,

Thursday, in a move that absolutely defies the slightest semblance of logic, the Democrat controlled California State Senate passed a measure that will lower the sentences for felons who used a gun in the commission of their crimes.

Legal gun owners don’t vote for them, so this is just servicing a constituency!

 

Someone is noticing the color of the sky in the left’s universe is commie-red.

Liberal Harvard Law School professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz said Thursday that the FBI scrutiny of Jared Kusher “raises great concerns about civil liberties.” Mr. Dershowitz said the Russia probe was “being done backwards” and likened it to Stalin’s secret police.

“Usually, you can point to a statute and say, ‘We’re investigating crime under this statute,’” Dershowitz told Anderson Cooper on CNN. “What Mueller seems to be doing is saying: ‘We don’t like what happened. Maybe there was some collaboration. But I can’t figure out what statute was being violated.’

Yeah, you’re not the only one confused about what exactly the We’re Better And Smarter Than You Party is trying to claim he did, we know the real crime is going against what they want.

I do love this.

“When Hillary Clinton was being investigated, at least we knew what the statute was.”

Her actions were a textbook example of breaking them too, but she’s Coming Out Of The Woods To Join The Resistance and Flynn is a horrible traitor.

 

Speaking of anonymous liars, more Wash Post!  That link is to the Wash Examiner who’s busy passing on anonymous lies without noting they’re anonymous. Or letting us know they’re probably lies. The Wash Post lies a lot you know.

White House senior adviser Jared Kushner spoke with Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak about creating a secret and secure communications channel between President Trump’s transition team and Moscow, according to a report published Friday evening

The duo had discussed using Russian diplomatic facilities in America to keep their talks out of the public eye where U.S. intelligence officials would be able to pick up the private chats, the Washington Post reported.

No, they didn’t “report”, they passed along something some anonymous source told them.

Here’s the “innuendo, changing history and introducing lies” part of the report!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A former senior intelligence official said the FBI would have been aware if a White House official regularly visited the embassy and would have found the activity suspicious even if they did not know the topic of conversation. (innuendo based on nothing, V)

Mike Flynn, Trump’s former national security adviser, also attended the meeting (more innuendo, Flynn the Arch-Traitor was there!!!!!!! V). The December meeting was previously known about because Flynn was forced out of his job as a result of meeting with Kislyak. However, until Friday, it was not known that Kushner had also attended the meeting and made this offer. (that’s the “changing history to lie part V)

Lying liars who lie!

The Post’s headline doesn’t even say, “Allegedly”, they report it definitely but throughout their article says, “according to US officials who had been briefed on intelligence reports” and “according to intercepts of Russian communications that were reviewed by US officials“. They also quote people “familiar with the matter” who are sure they’re going to investigate this!

The whole Post article is full of innuendo and assertions by unnamed officials and that Examiner article doesn’t even make that clear. Isn’t that libel? Don’t they have to write, “allegedly” or something? If we were in the universe where important lefties were treated like the hoi polloi I mean. Obviously not in this one.

I do love this bit.

The incident involving Kushner sends the administration further into controversy as it attempts to explain why Trump would have needed a secret channel to Russia.

It should send the Wash Post further into controversy as it attempts to explain why it keeps using anonymous officials as the sole sources in supposed hard news articles.

But they have a voterariate to put in their place!

Get Trump!

 

News We All Knew! Obama is the one who actually tried to Hack The Election!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The FISA court called it a “very serious Fourth Amendment issue” that NSA analysts — in violation of a 2011 rule change prohibiting officials from searching Americans’ information without a warrant — “had been conducting such queries in violation of that prohibition, with much greater frequency than had been previously disclosed to the Court.”

A number of those searches were made from the White House, and included private citizens working for the Trump campaign, some of whose identities were leaked to the media. The revelations earned a stern rebuke from the ACLU and from civil-liberties champion Sen. Rand Paul.

We also learned this week that Obama intelligence officials really had no good reason attaching a summary of a dossier on Trump to a highly classified Russia briefing they gave to Obama just weeks before Trump took office.

Under congressional questioning Tuesday, Obama’s CIA chief John Brennan said the dossier did not “in any way” factor into the agency’s assessment that Russia interfered in the election. Why not? Because as Obama intel czar James Clapper earlier testified, “We could not corroborate the sourcing.”…

In so doing, Brennan virtually guaranteed that it would be leaked, which it promptly was.

In short, Brennan politicized raw intelligence. In fact, he politicized the entire CIA.

We didn’t really learn the bolded part this week, it just became impossible to ignore.

Also, notice the lack of anonymous sources. That’s how you can tell it’s shoddy journalism.

It’s funny that the opinion pages of the Post are noticing reality as the “Hard News!!!!!” sections are all in on Fake News!

 

Speaking of a lack of anonymous sources, Dem perfidy!

Little has been made public by Capitol Police on what exactly is being investigated; news reports in recent months have linked Awan, several of his relatives, and his wife to some type of Capitol Hill investigation that could involve stolen property and more.

The new scrutiny came after a budget hearing on May 18 with U.S. Capitol Police Chief Matthew Verderosa; the hearing before a House Appropriations subcommittee had escaped notice, until reports earlier this week by the Daily Caller, noting the sharp words that Wasserman Schultz had for Verderosa.

But some anonymous dude saw a classified memo that talks about secret intercepts of conversations where Russians spies were talking about former US officials who were discussing a leaked transcript of an cable of a Russian official’s phone-call to a former official who was.. where was I? Oh yeah,  Trump told Putin he was going to put the US on the Ruble-standard!

In the wake of that somewhat jarring verbal exchange, a reporter on Thursday asked House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi about the Awan investigation.

“I’m really not familiar with what you’re talking about,” Pelosi said.

“We’ve been busy with a lot of other things,” Pelosi added.

Yeah, she’s been busy foaming at the mouth until lies about Trump come out.

U.S. Capitol Police have released little information about what this probe involves, and who exactly is being investigated.

I wonder if they’re trying to leak but “journalists” keep hanging up on them. That’s the way to bet.

 

Recall the two brothers arrested in Minnesota with guns, bomb-making stuff and a hand-grenade. They picked the wrong week for Islamic dudes to be caught with that stuff, the Backlash Against The Muslims is out in full force!!!!!!!!

Abdullah Alrifahe had recently been released from jail after serving time for a weapons conviction. He is now facing a single felony weapons charge.

His brother, Majid, has been released from jail and is facing a low-level misdemeanor charges, including disorderly conduct.

You didn’t believe that bit about the backlash, did you?

Let’s lie!

However, criminal defense attorney Joe Tamburino, who is not affiliated with the case, says prosecutors are doing what they can.

Dude, they had a hand-grenade.  A fucking hand-grenade. Did they have a permit? The one brother was a felon, he had a hand-grenade. And guns.

If that’s the state of the law, I really need to move to Minnesota, I want to drive around with hand-grenades and bomb-making shit and be left alone! I’m stuck in that gun-and-explosive-fearing state of Arizona! I wish we had lenient hand-grenade and gun laws here like in Minnesota!

They claim “more charges could be coming!”, but recall the time somebody blew up a building in Minnesota and nobody seemed interested in why or how, so basically expect them to sit in jail for a week or two until the heat dies down and be released.

 

What’s the sign of a civilization on its last legs? When fighting back is bad.

British aircrew wrote ‘Love from Manchester’ on a missile set to target ISIL in Syria, it’s been confirmed…

“The words written on the bomb are an unpleasant example of everything that’s wrong with our current approach to foreign policy and our penchant for funding chaotic conflicts that further destabilise countries and create the conditions ideal for extremism to flourish. It is the very embodiment of ‘an eye for an eye’, which we all know leaves the whole world blind.”

There will always be an Akbar Britain!

 

Immense progress made in noticing the terrorist networks veining Akbar Britain!

British police say they have made ‘immense’ progress in the investigation into the Manchester Arena bombing. A 44-year-old man is the latest to be arrested, taking the total number currently in custody to nine. A further two people were released without charge earlier in the week.

 Authorities say they’ve detained a “large part of the network” being sought, but warn more arrests are likely…
There are a lot of lone wolves working alone!

 

Update to yesterday’s post talking about Hillary not appearing to realize she was describing Bill when she was trying to bash Trump, I thought her hat looked weird but I missed the obvious, and I’m embarrassed about that.

She wouldn’t know introspection if it texted her a picture of its weiner.

 

I always thought kangaroos were assholes, but I keep seeing stuff that makes them look a lot less assholish.

Or is it that Aussie birds are the real assholes?

The sad look makes it for me. He looks like Kago after a little dog takes his bone.

 

What if you meet yourself from an alternate universe and he doesn’t have a goatee? Does that mean you’re the evil one?

The reason I ask is because I think I’m in an alternate universe where irony holds no sway.

Hillary’s commencement speech

We were asking urgent questions about whether women, people of color, religious minorities, immigrants would ever be treated with dignity and respect. And by the way, we were furious about the past presidential election of a man whose presidency would eventually end in disgrace with his impeachment for obstruction of justice. After firing the person running the investigation into him at the department of justice.

And nobody in the crowd stood up and asked her if she had brain damage. Seriously, put, “perjury which was” before “obstruction of justice” and that’s Bill’s POTUSy. Of course, we weren’t asking questions about whether women would be treated with dignity and respect, we were making fun of women’s looks and calling them lying trailer trash.

 

This journolister doesn’t mention crying, I figure it’s just to be assumed.

Boehner said Trump “did what he could” with healthcare, but never subscribed to the idea of ‘repeal, then replace.’ Instead he should have worked to ‘repair’ Obamacare.

“Everything else he’s done [in office] has been a complete disaster,” said Boehner. “He’s still learning how to be president.”

The only thing Trump’s done domestically is undo a bunch of Obama’s law-breaking/law-making and try to get Congress to do something useful. So not so much a disaster as, “A best case scenario” because we all knew Congress was not going to do anything useful but we hoped Trump might.

Notice Boehner is saying Trump should “repair” Obamacare, what I have been saying Congress really wanted to do instead of the repeal we want and they claimed to want.

 

This is unexpected.

Heard any good Mike Flynn jokes lately?

How about this one from “Morning Joe,” this week? “When it comes to legal issues, he’s like Charmin. You just keep squeezing.” Maybe you’ve seen Stephen Colbert’s segmentfrom February about Trump’s former national security adviser: “It’s funny ’cause it’s treason.”…

…If there truly was treason, it’s no joking matter. If there was not, then this man’s name is being tarnished unfairly. Ha. Ha…

None of this would be happening without some very dirty business from the national security state. It’s a two-pronged campaign. First there are the whispers. Anonymous officials …

The second and more insidious element here is the innuendo. Yates never says Flynn was a spy for Russia. … she told Lizza, Flynn was “compromised by the Russians.” This sounds far more sinister than…

…dropped by former CIA director John Brennan. …. “Frequently, people who go along a treasonous path do not know they are on a treasonous path until it is too late,” he warned.

And some people, like Brennan, are no doubt fully aware of the treasonous path they’re treading. Cuz they didn’t like who won the last election and the We’re Better And Smarter Than You Party is above the law.

Contacts between the Trump campaign and Russian individuals “raised questions in my mind about whether Russia was able to gain the cooperation of those individuals.” This cooperation could be “witting” or “unwitting,” he cautioned.

So…Hillary is let off because she didn’t mean to break the law while Flynn’s actions “raised questions” but were possibly (read: probably) ‘unwitting’. We know who our fine intelligence betters are going after.

Now, it’s entirely possible that the government will charge Flynn and other Trump associates with high crimes. This would be a political disaster for the president. But at least if the government does present such charges, Flynn will have the opportunity to defend himself. In the interim, if that day ever comes, Flynn must follow the advice of his lawyers and keep quiet.

Only the NYTimesWashPostCNNABCCBSNBCFoxnewsetc. will charge and convict him. That’s the point. That’s why Comey Is Going To Testify!!!!! not right away. But Real Soon!!!!!!! So they can keep trying to weaken the man they hate. And if America gets screwed over that? Well that’s our fault for voting for that fascist!

This is not how it’s supposed to work. Normally if a U.S. official is suspected of treason, the government collects evidence before hinting to the public what it might be seeking evidence about.

Bloomberg view wrote that, not me. No, really. Click the link if you don’t believe me.

 

Let’s Disaster!

First, Trump’s Disastrous Budget Of Death!

A provision included in the Justice Department’s proposed fiscal 2018 budget seeks to …

require law enforcement to comply with federal immigration detainers…

Analysts had earlier said all federal dollars sent to state and local jurisdictions, ranging from health to community development grants, could be at risk under the order.

Under the budget proposal, all Justice Department and Homeland Security Department grants would be at risk if jurisdictions failed to comply with the new expanded version of Section 1373.

The nerve of him! Doesn’t he know that’s unConstitutional? Doesn’t he also know there’s no way the GOP is going to vote for that? Doesn’t he know that’s only good to show his political opponents (everybody in politics) are lying sacks of pandering?
I’d say the answers are, “He knows some judge will say so. He’d fight it but it won’t come to that because…”, “Yes” and “That’s the point!”, respectively.

 

Not so much “disaster” as “awesome“,

A U.S. warship carried out a “maneuvering drill” when it sailed within 12 nautical miles of an artificial island built up by China in the South China Sea, to show Beijing it was not entitled to a territorial sea around it, U.S. officials said on Thursday.

The operation near Mischief Reef on Thursday, Pacific time, among a string of islets, reefs and shoals over which China has disputes with its neighbors,

You need to let them know you won’t back down, I do wish we’d heard about this some other way though.

On Thursday, the destroyer USS Dewey conducted a “man overboard” exercise, specifically to show that its passage within 12 nautical miles was not innocent passage, U.S. officials said.

“USS Dewey engaged in normal operations by conducting a maneuvering drill inside 12 nautical miles of Mischief Reef,” one official said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

“The ship’s actions demonstrated that Mischief Reef is not entitled to its own territorial sea regardless of whether an artificial island has been built on top of it.”

Stop anonymously fucking leaking you assholes. If that was an ‘authorized leak’, they need to stop those for a while. We have to get gov’t assholes under control.

Related.

It comes ahead of a visit to Singapore next week by U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis to discuss security with regional counterparts.

Mattis is not easily intimidated. I am a little surprised, I figured Trump would send Tillerson first, then Mattis. The carrot and the bludgeon in other words.

Beijing said two Chinese guided-missile warships had warned the U.S. vessel to leave the waters and that it had lodged “stern representations” with the United States.

I’d bet their guided missile warships! probably had the same effect on their course I had and I’m sure the “stern representations” were treated with all the respect they were due.

 

Now, I’m not a financial guy, what I know about economics would fit on one page. And mostly be wrong. The one thing I do know is, “Don’t trust socialists.

Fidelity Investments may support shareholder proxy proposals calling on companies to report on sustainability matters this year, a major shift by the Boston asset manager as climate activists gain more traction at large US corporations.

While Fidelity will generally vote as company managers recommend on environmental or social issues, “Fidelity may support shareholder proposals calling for reports on sustainability, renewable energy and environmental impact issues,” states a new section of its proxy voting guidelines.

 

Sell, sell, sell! Winthorpe told me to buy frozen orange juice futures. Or pasts. I forget.

“Sustainability” projects never seem to be sustainable, ‘renewable energy’ counts on huge, ongoing, influxes of gov’t money. When that dries up so does the company. “Environmental impact issues” are basically Flagellants attempting to repel Global Worming induced plagues, they advocate lowering our standard of living to appease Gaia, blow out a candle and praise the dark sort of people.

 

Showed Him!!!

French President Emmanuel Macron swerved to avoid President Trump — so that Macron could be first to greet German Chancellor Angela Merkel instead, as the leaders met in Brussels.

The apparent snub was caught on video, and tweeted by Macron,

Child. “Look at me! I made him think I was gonna shake his hand but I didn’t.”

At least they let him in the country. Which reminds me, is Trump barred from Britain?

 

Fucking Obama, just has to lie every time he opens his mouth.

Obama: “I Didn’t Always Have The Tools” I Needed, “But At Least We Tried” In Syria
At a speech in Germany, former President Barack Obama laments that he didn’t always “have the tools” to do what he wanted to do to stop the war in Syria.

He’s saying he didn’t have tools? He had uber-tools Joe Biden, J. Effin’ Kerry and Chuck, Won’t Someone Take My Calls?, Hagel on the job. What more could he want?

 

This is just ignorant.

dwelling on the last administration can suffice for a counter-narrative with no higher purpose than to give partisan Republicans a way to deflect criticisms away from Trump. But that does not absolve us of our obligation to set the record straight. When it comes to the Obama era, that record is, at times, a disturbing one.

For example, it would be wise for the nation’s objective and center-left media outlets to join the right in dedicating some attention to a bombshell scoop alleging the systemic violation of American civil rights in the Obama years.

Bombshell Scoop!?!?!?!?! We watched it happen, they ignored it, buried it and called anybody who noticed it a racist, paranoiac or Tea Bagger (racist, hater in other words).

What does he expect them to do now? Tarnish the God-President’s Legacy? Admit they were feckless assholes for…ummmm, ever? (I kept going back in time to find a POTUS they didn’t lie about. Maybe Washington?)

 

For news from the land of Tolerance, Love and Mostly-Peace! we go to Evergreen College, where lefties being mostly-peaceful is evergreen!

Over the last 72 hours, students have taken over a small liberal arts college in Washington state, and only one adult has tried to stop them.

Students at Evergreen State College in Olympia, who filmed their exploits and posted the videos on social media, have occupied and barricaded the library, shouting down anyone who disagrees with them or shows insufficient passion for racial justice.

Biology professor Bret Weinstein was berated by dozens of students outside of his classroom Tuesday morning for refusing to participate in an event in which white people were invited to leave campus for a day. Now, he says police have told him to hold his classes off campus due to safety concerns…

Now, Weinstein’s reportedly been told to avoid campus because his safety is at risk.

Police told me protesters stopped cars yesterday, demanding information about occupants,” Mr. Weinstein told The Washington Times. “They believe I was being sought. It appears that the campus has been under the effective control of protesters since 9:30 a.m. Tuesday.

Talk about tolerance and mostly-peace!

So tolerant, loving and mostly-peaceful that

Police are on lockdown

Okay, that’s hilarious.

Or it would be if it was a scene in Airplane III, not so funny since it’s a college Where Our Elite Meet To Excrete!

 

How Dare You Call Us Baddasses!

The Polish Embassy to the United States gave Cramer a refresher course in WWII this week after learning that, on May 11, he had remarked: “Macy’s is like the Polish Army in WWII — it tried to field cavalry against German tanks and it did not end well.”

Poland was not amused.

I’ve only rarely heard people make fun of them for that, I usually respond with comments about duty, honor and balls.

“Here are the facts: in 1939 there were a number of recorded Polish cavalry charges against the invading Nazi German forces. These charges were directed against infantry, artillery, supplies, and at time as a means of breaking encirclement, but never against tanks.”

They knew they were going to die, but they were fighting murderous Nazis who wanted to kill much of their population to make some Lebensraum for good, German stock. Hitler was not shy about talking about that. It’s just that important people knew he didn’t mean it.

 

This surely ain’t no Keystone Pipeline.

A heavy metal music festival in Germany constructed a 4-mile long beer pipeline to more efficiently serve beverages to its guests.

The Wacken Open Air music festival in the northern German state of Schleswig-Holstein began constructing the massive beer pipeline in the fall and announced it was completed on Tuesday.

Definitely not Keystone Lite either. Germany knows beer.

 
I don’t know the answer to this question, maybe someone here could help her out?

 

Caballero stuff.

Okay, now we have to replace the fuel pump that I forgot I was told wasn’t very good. It’s a crappy electric one that I thought was a good electric one. I hope. I’m getting sick of people telling me stuff and then the next guy telling me the opposite. Hopefully that stops the “stall when idling in hot weather” problem. That’s not a good problem to have in the greater Phoenix metropolitan region.

In VA and NY, I’m in the car business and know mechanics who work for booze and grilled steaks and taters, out here I’m at the mercy of these people.

One guy told me I had too much carburetor and I needed to get rid of it and get a different one.

Another guy told me I didn’t have enough carb, I have a Holley 750, and I need to get a different one. I also need a different distributor from the brand new, HEI one that others have said, “That’s awesome!”

 

Personal stuff. My niece is getting married next month at the Wynn in Vegas. I waited too long so I didn’t get in her block of rooms. They also don’t have any rooms with two beds that weekend. I like my buddy, but not that much.

For about $50 more/night I got a sweet suite at the Venetian Palazzo right across a side street from the Wynn. I love the Venetian, it’s just cool. I forgot about Vegas too and boggled when she asked, “Smoking or non-smoking?” “Extra-smoking please.” My buddy chain-smokes and I’ll bring some cigars.

The best part? I’ll be at the wedding and all the events but I won’t be staying in the same hotel as my family.

As George Burns said, happiness is a large, caring, close-knit family staying at a different casino…living in another state.

 

I’ve seen some people talking and writing about this Wash Post story but I haven’t seen the most important take-aways.

The document, obtained by the FBI, described how the Attorney General at the time, Loretta Lynch, had privately assured a Clinton campaign member that the email investigation would not go too far, the Post reported.

Receipt of the document then allegedly helped influence the July decision by then-FBI Director James Comey to announce on his own, without the Justice Department’s involvement, that the investigation into Clinton was finished and that no charges against Clinton would be forthcoming.

So… in other words, the director of the FBI dropped an investigation because he thought the head of the Dept. of “Justice” thought he should.

Let’s see, that means that the director of the FBI thought it likely, not just plausible, that the top law enforcement person in the US would try to influence an investigation. In other words, he thought the rule of law in America was over and done where important Democrats are concerned. Just like anybody paying attention for 8 years!

Said director of the FBI then gave the result he thought his masters wanted. Just like we all thought!

It appears that the director of the FBI therefore thinks there was a reason for investigation. Just like much of the country! Hence, President Trump.

And let’s touch on the Most Surprising Thing Of The Day! Now that there’s non-anonymously-sourced Comey news what’s CNN interested in? Not Comey!

Surprise!

The NY Times writes all that Trump/Russia stuff is bullshit!

“The information collected last summer was considered credible enough for intelligence agencies to pass to the F.B.I., which during that period opened a counterintelligence investigation that is ongoing,” the paragraph reads. “It is unclear, however, whether Russian officials actually tried to directly influence Mr. Manafort and Mr. Flynn. Both have denied any collusion with the Russian government on the campaign to disrupt the election.”

So… foreign spies tried to suborn elected officials but there’s no proof they were successful.

Wait, you mean foreign spies might try to suborn elected officials!!!!! Why, that’s never happened before in the history of ever!!!!!!!!!! Foreign spies just sit around, drinking martinis and playing baccarat! They would never try to suborn elected officials!

 

Get out your squeezey bulbs!

GOP voters device

Cuz Trey Gowdy has a fevah and the only prescription is more hearings!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R., Seaworld) on Wednesday said government surveillance programs would not receive the necessary congressional reauthorization for them to continue at the end of the year unless officials answer questions on who in the intelligence community unmasked certain individuals.

Now, nobody’s going to answer those questions in open session, cuz they’re all nationally secured, but He’s Going To Ask Questions!!!!!!!!! And Demand Answers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 Thanks Trey!

 

What won’t the GOP do? Anything useful!

The president is proposing the most ambitious welfare reform since the 1990s, focusing on requiring able-bodied adults who don’t have children to work in order to receive food stamps…
The work requirement in the president’s 2018 budget will save a whopping $190 billion over the next ten years… part of a larger plan to reform welfare in America.

“We must reform our welfare system so that it does not discourage able-bodied adults from working, which takes away scarce resources from those in real need. Work must be the center of our social policy,” the president wrote in his letter to Congress accompanying his proposed budget.

Not with Susan Collins, John McCain and Lyndsey Graham fighting you toothless and nail you won’t!

 

There are so many things wrong with this story.

(North Texas Sheriff) Murphree’s Facebook post about 10 p.m. Monday implored Americans to “pay attention to what is happening in Europe.”

“This is what happens when you disarm your citizens,” Murphree wrote. “When you open your borders without the proper vetting. When you allow political correctness to dictate how you respond to an enemy that wants to kill you. When you allow these radicals to travel to Afghanistan and Iran and simply let them back in.”

He later wrote, “You better wake up America. While you are distracted by the media and the crying of the left, Islamic Jihadist are among us and want to kill you.”

Pay attention to what you see in Manchester England tonight. Pay attention to what is happening in Europe. This is…

Posted by Tracy Murphree on Monday, May 22, 2017

A sheriff saying that if you import people from terroristy areas you’re going to get terrorism is ‘controversial’.

As our fine social, moral, political and intellectual betters are telling us terrorism is just something we’ll have to deal with. Why should two sets of people who look at the same thing and say the same thing be treated so differently?

A sheriff noticing that the reaction is always the same, worrying about moderate Muslims, the True Victims of the attack, lighting up the Eiffel Tower and Big Ben and apologizing for how our western values radicalized this misbegotten soul and he’s “controversial”. That’s bass ackwards.

Also, this is in Texas. A Texas sheriff has to defend, in his words,

“I stand behind it,” Denton County Sheriff Tracy Murphree told NBC 5. “We need to be realistic about the world we live in.”

Some people cannot ignore reality. They don’t live behind armed guards, they are the armed guards.

 

You know what’s not controversial? That after every terrorists attack our fine betters lie through their teeth about what happened, when they’re not avoiding telling us his name which might give a clue as to motivations.

The bomb that killed 22 people in Manchester on Monday was the most sophisticated device set off in Britain since attacks by the IRA, it emerged today…

The explosive, which was packed in a £20 Karrimor backpack and taken to the Manchester Arena by suicide bomber Salman Abedi, was probably made by a team of professionals and could have been triggered remotely, investigators believe.

It’s funny how many people worked alone on that attack.

Notice that “it could have been triggered remotely” even though the first day we heard, definitely, that the sploded terrorist had set it off. I didn’t trust them and neither does anybody else anymore.

Our fine betters lie to save protected constituencies that are anti-pathetic to the whole concept of western civilization. And we’re supposed to treat getting ‘sploded as a nuisance.

I do wonder why nobody ever thought of this before.

 

 

I didn’t realize Scrappleface was still posting.

A troubled young person issued a cry for help last night from the lobby of a Manchester (U.K.) arena at the end of an Ariana Grande concert, leaving 22 dead and dozens wounded — most tragically, the emotionally-distraught youth himself.

It’s not funny, but it is. Cuz it’s barely satire.

 

It’s funny how often I’m called a hater because I’m upset that illegal immigrants are above the law and then called names for being against illegal immigrants be above the law as lefties make illegal immigrants above the law.

Denver is moving to reduce the sentences of most municipal offenses to help immigrants avoid deportation.

The Denver Post reports Mayor Michael Hancock wants to change the potential amount of time people serve in jail for less serious crimes to less than a year in an attempt to keep them off the radar of immigration officials.

So..which “less serious crimes”?

and the first or second instance of domestic violence

As we saw the other day, Democrats say bitches need to be humble. Just cuz the second instance of domestic violence is 19 times more likely to be fatal for the wymyns* doesn’t mean they need to do something about it!

*Like 67% of all stats, that’s made-up, but it proves my point so I’m going to CNN it. 

 

Sometimes I wish we had a parliamentary system.

A second attempt at a four-party coalition in the Netherlands has failed, just a week after the first attempt had also unravelled.

The leaders of the pro-EU centrist D66 party and the mildly eurosceptic Christian Union announced on Tuesday (23 May) that their differences of opinion were too big for coalition talks to succeed.

Think of all the harm they can’t do when they can’t even pass any laws!

This is my favorite, it shows Dutch pols are pretty much the same as ours.

The second-largest party in parliament, Geert Wilders’ far-right anti-EU PVV party, is open to talks, but no other parties see any use in that, because of the great differences amongst them…

You see, just cuz Geert Wilders party is the second largest that doesn’t mean any of the Dutch Masters should actually pay attention to them! I mean, only haters voted for them so their betters can safely ignore their votes!

 

Just like the GOP!

 

Now, if the GOP wants to do something useful, how about some hearings on this? Notice the “near water”, so he didn’t actually do anything to the water, just within sight of it.

A California farmer is facing a $2.8 million fine for failing to get a permit to plow his own field.

John Duarte bought 450 acres of land near Modesto in 2012 and is now being sued by the federal government for plowing near areas the government considers to be “waters of the United States.”

They can throw fish at the EPA thugs instead of me!

 

 

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.

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!

By any other name.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Yet all that is what daily we hear and read.

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

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

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

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

Which led us to:

 

Same story, same words, different reactions.

Fakenewser Extraordinaire is up in arms!

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

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

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

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

Here.

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

CNN finally found some Fake News they cannot get behind!

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

Compare and contrast

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

That particular murderous dictator pays attention to reality.

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

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

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

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

 

Now here’s my question.

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

And in related news…

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

Look at this

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

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

 

This one has to be tough for lefties.

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

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

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

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

 

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

I remember vomiting like this.

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

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

 

 

When is the end of the world?

May 31st!

 

Mega-Earthquake!

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

 

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

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

I’d say we ain’t seen nothing yet.

 

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

And this Concerned Conservative is On The Job!

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

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

a legislature that is quarrelsome and confused.

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

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

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

The funniest/stupidest sentence of the link.

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

For the counter-point,

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

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

That’s just fucking vulgar and low.

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

 

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

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

 

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

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

 

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

GOP voters device

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

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

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

 

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

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

Well, not so much funny as infuriatingly infuriating.

 

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

He could call himself Chaitlyn.

 

 

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

As Rachel Lucas says,

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

 

Welcome to the party pal.

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

 

These people would be indignant if I pointed and laughed.

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

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

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

 

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

 

I agree with Paul Ryan!

Paul Ryan insists Trump drama isn’t affecting Congress

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

 

 

Via Babalu blog we see this from the Hill.

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

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

 

This is pretty dam cool.

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

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

 

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

Check them all out.

 

Some times I don’t hate people.
