She has them.

 

Wow.

Sad the say, the first thing I thought was, “I hope she has an exit plan from her country, no bag over her body and saying stuff like that? Dead woman walking.”

I hope I’m wrong.

Brave Journalist

Posted: July 10, 2015 by veeshir in Random Crap, run with media, True Heroes

Not “Journalist” but an actual, living, breathing Journalist.

Cartel Land is about Mexican cartels and the hell the Mexican gov’t allows them to create in part over fear and in part over the massive bribes and, I’d guess, in part because they like to screw America and so long as they keep making the border lawless and easily traversed by the people the Mexican gov’t wants to get rid of.

Journalists, documentary filmmakers and other story tellers fight and scratch for access. For his border-hopping film about Mexican drug cartels and the vigilantes on both sides of the Southern border who fight them…

This bit of editorializing by the “journalist” writing about it is emblematic of today’s “journalists”

…director Matthew Heineman might have gotten more than he bargained for.

No, he was not targeted for death (yet at least, I don’t trust Mexican cartel thugs).

You see, the “journalist” notices that the actual journalist who did an actual documentary (not crockumentary ala’ Michael Moore) discovered that the cartels are not angels and that the average people trying to fight back against them are not The Devil.

Should be interesting to see if any other “journalists”, who know far too much to ever learn anything, can actually learn something from this.

Nahh, they’re too busy demonizing anybody against illegal immigration to notice the truth, they have The Truth! to disseminate.

You wuz warned.

It doesn’t get much funnier or endier than this.                                                                                                       Headline

Obama will even defend anti-Semitism to spin his Iran deal

 

That’s from Lebanon, the country that embraced Hezbollah because they hate Jews.

This is a two-fer, an illustration as to why Green Science is neither and global warmmongers lie.

SAMSOE: A ROLE MODEL IN SELF-SUFFICIENCY

Yeah, about that, first, they use windmills, that they don’t make. They also brag about how much money they make from selling electricity to the mainland, but they fail to mention this.

As a result of these decisions, three things happened: Vestas, Bonus and Danish wind turbine–makers came to lead their industry globally; a high fossil-fuel tax created generous government subsidies for renewable development; and Samso became sustainable—producing more energy than it consumed for the first time in 2005 and every year since. “[The] fossil-fuel consumer is actually paying for the green development,” Hermansen notes….

…thanks to a bonus payment for renewable energy supplies and to 10-year contracts utilities are required by law to sign with wind power producers.

It’s self-sufficient if they get huge subsidies. Antidictionaryestablishmentarianism in other words. Like this part, it’s the bit where greenies are just like middle ages monks scourging themselves in the public square

If he is consuming more than he is producing, he runs around unplugging things while his poor wife is sitting in the dark,”

Blow out a candle and praise the dark!

 

I do wish environmentalists weren’t just commie tools or maybe they’d do something about this

Chinampas are floating farms started by the Mexica (Aztecs) 600 years or more ago and now they’re disappearing because of various things but mostly pollution.

Low-income housing developments blot lands that used to be chinampas, or floating gardens. Cars and trucks rumble down pollution-choked streets that used to be canals.

Many of the development projects were built as a bid to win votes when Xochimilco, like  most of Mexico, was controlled by the notoriously corrupt Institutional Revolutionary Party, or PRI.

I look forward to stories about “bad luck” in Mexico City.

Semi-related, it just makes me laugh. And cringe of course, but you takes teh funny where you can get it.

science!!!!!!

 

In Gov’t Healthcare News, the Brits NHS is going to improve the lives of people!!!! How?

Under the proposed Sustainable Development Goals, UN member states will be given targets to cut the number of deaths from diseases like cancer, stroke, diabetes and dementia by one third by 2030.
However because many are age-related illnesses people who succumb to those diseases from the age of 70 are not deemed to have died prematurely and so are not included in the target.

They starve them to death and call it “natural causes” and now this. It sucks to be old in (used to be) Great Britain. So we have that to look forward to.

 

So as American cities are being sacked by Democratic voters, the “Justice” Dept knows who to go after.

The Department of Justice is concentrating on “far-right” groups in a new study of social media usage aimed at combatting violent extremism.

They say Islamic terrorism too, but why no targeting of the domestic groups actually blowing up our cities? I know, it’s a Chicag0-machine-“Justice” Dept so why would they go after their foot-soldiers, but still, they can at least lie to me the way they’re lying and saying that since Congress didn’t authorize it they’re stopping their collection of data .

Here we have the part where Veeshir disagrees with Clarence Thomas.

No monuments are ever built to cynics.

Yeah, about that……

Last, and least important, the most important bit of the day.

Lyndsey Graham is really running, which leaves me in a conundrum.

These are the things that keep me up at night.

Maybe I’m Wrong

Posted: February 16, 2014 by veeshir in Exploding things, PEBKAC, True Heroes

I know they had GI Joes for all branches, but wasn’t the basic GI Joe in the Army?

Maybe I’m wrong, but I don’t think so.

I had lots of GI Joes when I was a kid in the late 60s and early 70s and they mostly had Army uniforms and stuff.

Which makes this pretty darn funny. (Update: That’s Old NFO’s blog, I didn’t even know he had one, check it out)

The face of GI Joe, the quintessential Soldier, was based on a Marine.

One bad mofo of a Marine, he and his buddies killed so many Japanese soldiers they couldn’t even count them.

Read the whole thing. You’ll enjoy it.

You know what this means?

Maybe it’s true, when the Army and Navy look on Heaven’s scenes they will find the streets are guarded by United States Marines.

From The Barrel Of a Gun (with a bullet!)

Important probably not safe for work update below the fold. Via the Daily News, The X-Ray. Ugh.

 

Seriously?

Shocked doctors had to perform emergency surgery on a man in the Australian capital Canberra after he lodged a 10 centimetre (four-inch) steel fork inside his penis for sexual pleasure.

No, seriously?

The bizarre incident was considered so unusual that it was written up as a case report in a recent issue of the International Journal of Surgery.

I’ll bet.
According to the paper “An Unusual Urethral Foreign Body,”
Now there’s a conference that screams out for Dr. Sheldon Cooper PhD.
Every now and then we need a category for the opposite of hotassery.

Now that I have your attention, let’s go to the boobs!

So a few years ago Tsar Putin I had a guy named Litvinenko killed in London using some sort of radioactive stuff in a needle. So the Brits decided to get tough and investigate it!

The results will stay secret. (Grauniad link, I had my choice of BBC, NY Times of the Grauniad, sorry).

Shit, those wimpy boobs in the Brit gov’t ar….damn that’s one fanfastic fucking gif up there.

Lest we think Britain is totally useless, check this out.

A GRANDAD whose house was pelted with stones by a schoolboy was NICKED and FINED after frogmarching him to his parents for a telling-off.

See? They’re not totally useless, they’re totally fucking useless!

In non-boob news, Columbia teaches us how to negotiate with terrorists.

Colombian government forces have killed a FARC brigade commander close to the Marxist group’s chief peace negotiator

Now that’s how you do it. FARC ceased their cease fire so the Columbians started killing them again. Nice.

Headline

The Holocaust Just Got More Shocking

No you idiots, all it does is illustrate beyond a shadow of a doubt that those Germans who claimed “I didn’t know!!!” were lying sacks of shit. Just like anybody with a brain already knew.

I have a hard time watching some war movies and not wishing we had perfected the bomb 2 years earlier. Especially in the Band of Brothers when they find the camp and Germans pretend they had no idea what was happening in that horrible place.

Damn, everybody wants to be where the revolution starts.

Brophy points to a section of the bill that defines a high-capacity magazine as one capable of accepting or — that can be readily converted — to accept more than 15 rounds or eight shotgun shells.

That’s just about every pump-action shotgun, you can put a mag extender on them so they’re illegal even without doing so.

So that’s why Biden was pushing double-barrels.

I know, I’m banging my chubby fists on the high-chair again, but….

Jonah Goldberg is upset they’re not inviting Christie to CPAC,

Oh, and he parroted the gun-control line and flip-flopped on accepting a federal bribe to accept Obamacare funding to expand Medicaid.

He thinks they need a big tent, stop being so strict about who they let in.

Yeah, that’s worked so well for the Church of England and the Catholic Church in America.

When your stock in trade is a belief system, it helps to actually FUCKING BELIEVE IN SOMETHING!

Sorry. I just get worked up. Added, I deleted “you assholes”, that was unnecessary. I was all worked up.

Heinlein always said that If “everybody knows” such-and-such, then it ain’t so, by at least ten thousand to one

Case in point. There aren’t more black men in prison than college.

I have to admit, I’ve always accepted that. It always embarrasses me when I forget that truism.

This one is funny on so many levels. 20 years after it could do any good, the state of Michigan is declaring Detroit a disaster area and taking over.

The quotes are what make it.

Mayor Dave Bing said Friday he does not favor an emergency manager to solve Detroit’s problems,

Wait, you mean a grifter is upset that he’s going to lose his source of graft? Color me pointing and laughing.

But wait, he demands his graft!

“There needs to be additional conversation with Lansing regarding their plan to move the city forward,” Bing said. “We have always said that we need help from Lansing to implement our initiatives such as public safety, transportation, lighting and others.

I’ll translate: Gimme, gimme, gimme.

I have to admit, I totally agree with this resident.

“I don’t think it’s right at all,”Angela Woodmere, 37, said Friday outside the Maccabees Building on Woodward. “We elected Detroit politicians and Snyder shouldn’t be dictating how they run the city.”

People get the gov’t they want, they voted for Henry Gondorff, they should keep him.

Speaking of scumbags. Via the Jawas we see Obama’s peace partners giving toys to children!!!! yay!!!!!

The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) government has decided to educate children about the dangers of toy-like bombs after militants allegedly targeted them recently with bombs disguised as candy, toys and even a string of ball-shaped explosives tied to a cricket bat.

Fucking savages. As for the Obama bit, it might not be the Taliban, but you know Obama would side with this set of boy-fucking savages just like he does with the Taliban.

Via Samizdata, we see this story about art. No, about Art!

So a hundred years ago some guy named Duchamp was at an art exhibit and he grabbed a urinal, signed it and put it on display. Some people are still doing it today. (Recall the janitor who “tidied up” a pile of garbage not realizing it was a million dollar pile of garbage). So the reviewer has this to say:

But it’s not going to come from repeating the same old tricks of 100 years ago. The urinal lovers now are the art establishment.

Hilariously true, but I laugh because I think of the haughty smugnitude you would get back from any Arteeeeest you said that to.

Couple Castle Arghhhhh! links.

First, the dumbest thing I’ve seen all day. (and that’s fucking saying something)

Cadets on the Brigade Energy and Environmental staff will introduce a new insignia to the Corps when they don their cadet uniforms this week. These cadet energy and environmental officers and noncommissioned officers, or E2Os, are tasked with leading the charge on initiatives related to recycling, energy and water conservation at the academy.

Silver Gore Award!

What does 4 up, 3 squiggly mean to you soldier? You’re pathetic sergeant!

The Silver Gore can’t be far behind. I swear, they’re just fucking with us now.

At first glance this looks awesome, but look closer.

Where the hell is the mine sweeper guy! Geez, they’re gonna be boned without him. Everybody knows the dinosaurs plant mines.

A sad post and one where the NY Post blew the headline again.

A massive spill at a Chivas plant has sent the smell of spirits flowing through a Scottish sewer

It should read Hundreds of people found in the sewers of Dumbarton, Scotland.

True Heroes! I so rarely get to use that category. There are only 4 of Doolittle’s Raider’s left alive.

There’s only one thing about that that doesn’t totally suck.

Years ago the President of Hennessy Company presented a bottle of 1896 vintage “Very Special Hennessy” cognac to General Jimmy Doolittle, in honor of his birth year and it was decided that the last two survivors would toast the fallen with it. Due to their advanced age it was decided that they would make the toast this year, before there were none left.

Nice.
