No really, it’s just too freaking…I don’t know but it’s too much of it!

First, I’m gonna agree.

“George Washington was all about counterintelligence,” he said. “He would have had at least half the Trump WH shot as traitors, without tears or doubts.”

Probably. Almost definitely.

Since we’re discussing George Washington shooting elected officials, let’s talk about how he would have shot the entire Obama admin, the entire (hypothetical) Hillary admin, pretty much all the Dem Cong and most of the GOP Cong. Capitol Hill would have about 8 people living there after he got done with them.

Did nothing anybody said about this election get through to our betters? The choice wasn’t between “Better” and “Betterer”, it was between “Fuck me” and “I’m Fucked”.

 

Let’s do some Minitrue!

Headline

Clinton campaign plagued by bickering

Alternate Headline

Hillary Clinton Is An Unpleasant Person To Campaign For

Support for alternate headline

She’d been humiliated in the Michigan primary the night before, a loss that not only robbed her of a prime opportunity to put Bernie Sanders down for good but also exposed several of her weaknesses. How could she have been left so vulnerable? She knew — or at least she thought she did. The blame belonged to her campaign team...

Sensing just how angry she was, Mook responded by putting together a morning conference call so that Hillary could vent. But that didn’t settle her; if anything, it left her more perplexed and angry, as her debate-prep team witnessed firsthand.

Her aides took the browbeating — one of several she delivered in person and on the phone that day — in silence (all emphasis me V)

So..her aides took her attacks in silence and there was “bickering”? Doesn’t “bickering” imply that there is more than one person doing the yelling?

And once again, this is not new. We already established this way back in Travelgate.

 

Up Next We Have The GOP Congress Section!

So…it’s been introduced legislation only, none seem to even have been voted on, much less passed. So there’s a GOP Cong and POTUS and yet, Congress has not done any of the things they’ve been specifically elected to do.

Let’s see what they’re doing.

Via TaxProf Blog (he of the Day 125,874 of the IRS Scandal posts) on day 1435 (25 days from the 4 year mark) some CongressCritter in Texas wants you to honk your horn, slap your fins and ARF!!!!!!! for all you’re worth!

Today, Congressman Kevin Brady (TX-08) and Tax Policy Subcommittee Chairman Peter Roskam (R-IL) sent a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions calling on the Department of Justice to review evidence that Lois Lerner, the former IRS Exempt Organizations Division Director under the Obama Administration, broke the law to target Americans for their political beliefs.

More

Taxpayers deserve to know that the DOJ’s previous evaluation was not tainted by politics. Again, I respectfully request that the Department of Justice to take a fresh look at the evidence presented in the attached referral in order to assure the American people that DOJ’s prior investigation was handled fairly and to restore taxpayers’ trust in the IRS.

Oh, so he’s not saying, “Arrest that lying, thuggish, fascist”. Is he saying to actually investigate her or is he Tom Sawyer convincing some friends that’s taking care of Aunt Polly’s fence is gonna be fun? The last sentence sorta implies that.

Ace learns something that we here at DPUD learned long ago, Gateway Pundit has hyperbolic headlines that don’t match the story.

He links Gateway pundit with with headline

BREAKING: House GOP To File Criminal Charges Against Lois Lerner

…There is a bit of hyperbole in Gateway Pundit’s headline, but it is clear that the House is taking another look at Lerner with the intent of referring her to the Justice Department for prosecution.

GP has this quote

Rep. Roskam: The Obama Administration was very lenient with the crimes that Lois Lerner committed. And those are strong words that I’m using but the House Ways and Means Committee voted out a criminal referral to the Department of Justice which was completely dismissed by the Department of Justice… We think that Lois Lerner did two things wrong. Number one, she denied people due process and equal protection of the law based on their political philosophy. We’re convinced that there is overwhelming evidence to suggest that that’s true. And that’s a felony. Secondly, we suspect that she lied to the Inspector General of the Treasury Department.

That’s not saying they’re doing crap, that’s saying she deserves it.

Yeah, we knew that. We also knew you assholes aren’t going to do crap.

 

Ooooohhhhhh!!!!! They’re going after Susan Rice Too!!!!!!!! ARF ARF ARF!!!!!!!!!!

GOP Voter Device

An unnamed member of the House Intelligence Committee confirmed that Rice is now under “a full-blown investigation,” Fox News reported on Wednesday.

“We will be performing an accounting of all unmasking for political purposes focused on the previous White House administration. This is now a full-blown investigation,” the committee member said.

 

FULL!!!!! BLOWN!!!!!!!!!!

Contra the 70s T-Shirt, we’re gonna get injected, not blown.

They’re doing jack and shit.

And shit ran out of corn.

 

It’s Failure Theater all the way, they have not passed one fucking bill on border control or repealing Obamacare, both of which they should have been planning since November 9th. They’re talking about “taxes” but taxes was not a big issue in the election, Obamacare, illegal immigration and spending were the biggest issues.

An old Eddiebear post, hie thee hence and read the whole thing, it’s oddly apropos.

 

That’s right. We still have too many fucking RINOs in our midst who seem content to fuck us over at the drop of a hat. We still have too many fucking RINOs who are willing to abandon core principles in order to get an invite to a party or a glowing WAPO Style Section article. We still have too many RINOs who are willing to spit in our collective eye and tell us that we are in the wrong for demanding they vote the way we want. We still have too many RINOs who are more willing to work as statist collaborators than as defenders of freedom. We still have too many RINOs who feel entitled to their seats as though they were a sinecure appointment without consequence. We still have too many RINOs who ignored November’s call to action and think that holding your nose and voting for “the lesser evil” will hold sway with us. And we still have too many RINOs who need to be culled, for they are disloyal Quislings who put us in the problem we are in right now for their past actions. And to them, and their supporters, I say:

Fuck you...

Eddiebear at his fucking finest.

And that’s my point, how can you get motivated to blog when we’re dealing with the same bullshit we were dealing with two POTUSes ago?

 

Trump keeps ‘xecutively unordering Obama’s leftisms and making the world afraid of America again, why we elected him. He can’t do Congress’ job. We can get respect from our allies back eventually but for now, I’m hoping for a heaping helping of fear.

Tsar Putin I is very upset and it’s all Trump’s fault!!!!!!!!

Hours earlier on Wednesday, Russian President Vladimir Putin was equally pessimistic, saying in an interview broadcast on Russian television, “The level of trust on a working level, especially on the military level, has not improved but has rather deteriorated.” (since Trump, V)

I’m with the tsar. Last year he had a POTUS he could literally shit on

Although Russia was full of pranks against American officials during the Cold War, the State Department suggested the current harassment has been going on since 2014…

…On at least two occasions, diplomats have found human excrement on their floors.

And now he has to deal with President Bomby McNukerson. Talk about a let down for a murderous, expansionist, Tsar.

 

Two things.

Yesterday I wrote about the Norks but wasn’t clear….ummmm…was more unclear than normal.

Nobody is going to side with us if we hit the Norks, except probably Japan. It’s not in anybody else’s interest to do so. Well, unless we go to war, to the hilt war, with China.

But that’s unlikely (unless China starts it which is a very different kettle of dead commies), what is likely is a little fucking with.
I’d love to see Japan (or us, but I’d prefer them) to cruise missile the next Nork missile test. Just blow it the fuck up on the pad. Then, when everybody starts freaking we tell them to go screw or even better, deny it. “I don’t know who did that. Japan, did you do that? No? Taiwan, did you do that? No? Sorry murderous, Chinese, commie, dictators, we don’t know who did it.”

China and Japan are already close to war, this won’t change shit except possibly do a ‘Syria’ on China. Keep them worried about our crazed, poofy-haired maniac instead of the other way around.

 

Stephen Green links the WSJ because I can’t and the Wash Post because I don’t wanna.

First, WSJ

Meantime, of course, Russian President Vladimir Putin was the great-power leader who was supposed to emerge as the Trump favorite, the one who would develop a close relationship and be forgiven for past transgressions.

Minitrue cannot get past the lie that Tsar Putin I preferred Trump over an easily and often bribed Clinton. And what exactly are our “past transgressions”? Ignoring their invasions, assassinations in other countries and when we caused the fall of the USSR?

Yet somehow in the five months or so since Mr. Trump’s election victory, almost the reverse has happened. Now it appears the Trump-Xi relationship may be emerging as the world’s most important.

Our betters are all enamored of China. China is still a murderous, expansionist, commie, dictatorship. They really, really, really want us to emulate them.

 

Premier Li says ignore your lying eyes!

China is not militarising the South China Sea, Premier Li Keqiang said on Friday, although he acknowledged that defence equipment on islands in the disputed waterway had been placed there to maintain “freedom of navigation”.

Yeah, freedom of navigation. How free?

Despite its concessions, China’s presence here is growing, with a larger contingent of coastguard and fishing boats than was indicated in satellite imagery late last year.

That fuels concerns by Manila that Beijing may have ambitions for the Scarborough Shoal similar to the artificial islands it built and fortified in the Spratly archipelago, inside the Philippines’ exclusive economic zone.

No really, how free?

Philippines’ President Rodrigo Duterte has cancelled a planned visit to an island the Philippines claims in the disputed South China Sea, after Beijing warned him against the visit.

Reminds me of some movies from the early 40s, they were not happy movies.

 

Back to the original, Stephen Green link where he links the Wash Post.

Entire sections of booster rocket were snagged by South Korea’s navy and then scrutinized by international weapons experts for clues about the state of North Korea’s missile program. Along with motor parts and wiring, investigators discerned a pattern. Many key components were foreign-made, acquired from businesses based in China.

When China decides that the Norks need a good missile, they’ll have the best missiles the murderous commies in China can make. When China decides the Norks need nukes, they’ll give them some commie Chinese nukes.

There’s a line in Pork Chop Hill where one of the US Generals or diplomats negotiating with the Norks says something like, “Don’t just think of them as Orientals, they’re commie orientals.”

The Chinese are sure we’re idiots and their culture is the only good one. They will say all manner of shit just to fuck with us. Indeed, they look down on us when we are honest.

So anything they say about the deal with the Norks means absolutely nothing at all. It’s only useful as a guide that we might be able to use to figure out what they are going to do, but even that is more miss than hit.

They want to expand, they’re not going to give up NoKo and they love having the Norks fuck with the world. They’re the Plausible Deniability state. Which would make it even funnier to blow up their missile test and plausibly deny we had anything to do with it.

 

Some people make me laugh. Imam wants to make sure hateful Americans understand Islam means Peace.

a message he intends to spread especially to non-Muslims who may be familiar with the religion only through news coverage of Islamic extremist groups and federal policies such as the Trump administration’s travel ban.

“We as Muslims owe it to the American people to tell them what Islam is,” Al-Qazwini said. “Islam is not a cult. It is a religion followed by over 1.6 billion people around the world. … Yet many Americans don’t know basically anything about Islam. Many Americans have not met a Muslim in their life.

So what is he calling his message?

Al-Qazwini’s new mantra: “Islam for All.”

Yeah see, that’s one of the biggest, non-splodey, problems we have with many Islamic types, they want us all to be their religion.

Oh, and Islam doesn’t just mean ‘peace’

Islam is derived from the Arabic root “Salema”: peace, purity, submission and obedience

Peace through submission.

I prefer Peace Through Superior Firepower.

 

I’ve had this conversation with a bunch of people on a bunch of subjects, from “standing to sue federal officials” to how my bank should treat me, and while I understand my position is not the legal one, this illustrates my problem with not just airlines but lawyers.

OregonMuse had a post at Ace’s

#2 son worked for several years as a “ramp agent” at our local airport. Ramp agents are airline grunt workers. They check passengers in, check baggage, wave planes into the gate with flashlights, clean up the passenger areas of the plane between flights, etc.

Coincidentally, he worked for United.

I asked him for his take on the United brouhaha.

The money shot for me.

They’re allowed to overbook their flights and they’re also allowed to kick off pretty much whomever they want to make room. The law states that the airline must solicit volunteers to take another flight (which they did), after which they can start involuntarily denying boarding to passengers. It’s also my understanding that “denied boarding” can even occur after the plane is physically boarded.

I understand and accept overbooking, lots of people miss flights and the airline shouldn’t have to eat that, but the “denied boarding can occur after boarding” is fucking stupid lawyer tricks.

How can he be “denied boarding” after he’d already been boarded? The boarding is in the past, they cannot then ‘deny’ it. They can negate it, but they cannot deny that which has occurred.

Sure you already drank that soda, but we’re denying you drinking that soda so I’m going to punch you in the stomach to get it back! is not reductio ad absudum, it’s reductio ad exactly the fucking samum.

Stupid fucking lawyer tricks.

I’m sure if any of you are lawyers you think I’m wrong. I accept that. Accept that I think it’s stupid fucking lawyer tricks to deny the plain meaning of words because there’s some stupid fucking argument that denies reality but sounds good.

He was in his seat. He “possessed” the seat and they took it away. It was apparently perfectly okay for an airline to use law enforcement to enforce their rules that go against the plain meaning of the words.

Stupid fucking lawyer tricks, allowed by ex-lawyers as judges, made them violently hauling that guy off the plane perfectly fucking legal.

Man, that worked me up.

Let’s have a coupla chucklers.

 

This story is Kagogi Approved!

The journey took the 8-year-old through 4 intersections, over railroad tracks and also required him to make a few right hand turns and a left hand turn.

Witnesses told police he did obey all traffic laws and drove the speed limit.

Once at the McDonald’s on Market Street, a family friend who happened to be eating at the restaurant, notified the children’s grandparents. The children did get to eat their cheeseburgers before police arrived.

A trip to the Golden Arches is always in order.

There’s a little 21st centuryism in there.

Officer Koehler arrived at McDonald’s and talked to the little boy, who told him he had learned to drive by watching YouTube videos.

That makes me laugh.

 

There are 11 million hits on this, but I don’t think I’ve seen it before. Of course, that could just mean I posted it on this blog.

Some dude is leaving a message when he sees an accident.

 

I keep picturing the “Where’s the beef?” blue haired crew.

 

Okay one more.

I bet this is Seattle.

 

Dude, did someone move the city?

How did it get so freaking absurd out? It’s pretty endy, but it’s not really funny. Just absurd.

I saw stuff about Obama To Meet With Merkel!!!! and I thought he might be doing some diplomatin’ without a license so I clicked the link.

Barack Obama will meet with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in her home country late next month for a panel on democracy.

So just the normal, post-POTUS, 6-7 figure, plus airfare, accommodations and gift bag, Senior Statesman deal. It’s sorta funny that Obama, and others apparently, think of him as a Senior Statesman, but while that’s sorta absurd what’s really absurd is the focus of the panel.

The two will participate in “Being Involved in Democracy: Taking on Responsibility Locally and Globally,” which is sponsored by both the German Protestant Kirchentag and the Obama Foundation.

Yeah, Mr. I Never Met A Democratic Movement I didn’t Ignore, like the Iranian Student Protests and The Maiden Protests in Ukraine.  The Iranian student protest link is a hilarious, “fact check” by CNN where Romney said Obama was silent on the Iranian protests. CNN says,

Obama’s initial response to the protests became a source of controversy at the time, and his political enemies have brought it back up at various times since.

In the very first days of the Iran protests, the president did not weigh in publicly. After more and more images of violence surfaced, he condemned the actions of the Iranian government, and later toughened his talk.

 

They try to obfuscate that Obama only “talked tough!!!!!” after images of gov’t thugs beating (sorta like SEIU thugs beating tea partiers) and murdering protestors showed up on TV he said

“up to Iranians to make decisions about who Iran’s leaders will be,” he said, adding that “we respect Iranian sovereignty and want to avoid the United States being the issue inside of Iran.”
But, Obama said, “I am deeply troubled by the violence that I’ve been seeing on television. I think that the democratic process — free speech, the ability of people to peacefully dissent — all those are universal values and need to be respected.”
He said it was his understanding that “that the Iranian government says that they are going to look into irregularities that have taken place,”

Yeah, they got right on that. Giving out medals requires a careful analysis of their thugs’ actions.

Which statement, of course, showed he did his normal did jack and shit when democracy folks get beaten.

And shit was out of gum.

How can you blog when Obama, who spent much of his POTUSy actively damaging democracy around the world is on a panel about spreading democracy?

Sigh.

The other day I wrote,

First, the lie that they wanted to bomb anybody but Texas and Israel,

I meant it to be funny. While I think he wanted to bomb Israel and Texas, he was ready to bomb just about any jihadi enemy of Iran. like ISIS but not Hezbollah, anywhere, anywhere. The truth of the statement was that bombing Iran’s client state in Syria was not on the table. Especially since he had to use his flexibility with Putin.

 

This WSJ article linked by Stephen Green at the puppy blender’s shows a fundamental misunderstanding of “bi-partisan” legislation.

Democrats’ Conditions for Tax Overhaul Make Bipartisan Deal Unlikely.

Democrats getting their way is the definition of bi-partisan. It’s absurd to think otherwise.

 

I’m not looking for it, but I saw a CNN bit yesterday or the day before where their “neutral” reportage actually seemed to side with the Norks against the aggressive warmonger Trump. I mean, they allowed a bunch of unopposed statements about how Trump was being all bellicose at the peaceful Norks.

Which leads to We’re Better And Smarter Than You News:

I see Little Lord Graham talking about how the Syrians Sure Showed Trump!

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s decision to immediately resume air missions out of the airfield the US bombed is a big “FU” to President Trump, one senator said Sunday.

Like McCain, he wants to go to war all over the place. And then bitch about the war.

Trump said he blew him up over chemical weapons, when Assad uses more chem weapons get back to me. That would be an FU, which I’m sure would garner a No! FU! response. Be interesting to see if either Iran or Putin want that, but absurd to take the side of a murderous dictator against the POTUS from your party.

Well, ostensibly his party. It’s absurd to think that Graham and the rest of the permanent overclass could put up with a northeast liberal as a GOP POTUS who’s not pretty much Lincoln Chafee.

 

It’s funny watching Canadians seeing an invasion of entitled types from a third-world country and not being happy about it.

Canadians have empathy for refugees crossing into the country illegally but their concern over border security trumps (Heh V) all, a newly-released poll reveals.

Angus Reid Institute found that 50% of Canadians believe there’s a significant or huge risk of criminals and other dangerous individuals crossing into Canada through the unguarded border points now used by asylum seekers heading north from the U.S.

Almost three in every four Canadians want the country to focus its resources on monitoring and patrolling the border to discourage more crossings.

So you want to secure your border but we need ours open? Bite me, eh.

 

Anti-racism protesters  segregated themselves by race

That’s absurd. Pretty funny in that today’s totally tolerant anti-racists want all the same things as yesteryear’s totally hated racists, but it just keeps getting more and more absurd. Especially the reason for the self-segregation.

For white accomplices: Please keep in mind that your role at this protest, aside from acting in solidarity with POC students at the 5Cs, particularly Black students, is to serve as a buffer between students of color and the police,” the page states. “That means, if the police come, it is imperative that you stay at the protest with fellow accomplices and engage with cops should it come to that.”…

The instructions also describe an “accomplice meeting” at Scripps College where protesters could learn more information about how to handle themselves in various situations.

Nice to acknowledge the felonious feature of so many leftist protest by calling them “accomplices”, so kudos for that. Not sure why they thought having whitey mix it up with cops would be any better. Haven’t they been watching TV? You need at least one “person of color” beaten to get any airtime.

Absurdity all around.

 

This is totally absurd.

Should ongoing discussions in Salem materialize, voters would see a question on their general election ballots asking if a 172-year-old ban on dueling by public officials — as in, the old-fashioned way of resolving fights — should be erased from the Oregon Constitution.

Duels require a sense of honor. I can count American pols with a sense of honor on the toes of one hand. It would thin their ranks nicely so I’m fer it so long as there’s a budget for advertising when cowardly pols avoid a duel.

 

Illustrating the inherent absurdity of trying to get involved in Syria.

President Donald Trump ordered a Tomahawk cruise military strike against one of the 3,297 factions currently fighting in the Syrian civil war, sources confirmed today.

Just days after the Syrian government, one of the thousands of rebel groups, or al Qaeda terrorists allegedly bombed civilians with chemical weapons, Trump and his military planners launched missiles after mulling options that could potentially punish the perpetrators of such a war crime.

We blew them then up when they pissed us off. That’s all the dealings we should have with “regime change” in Syria. Whoever wins, the region loses. I’d be happier totally getting out and just supplying well-armed jihadis of all stripes to extend the conflict. A flypaper strategy where jihadis fight each other instead of us and Israeli school-children.

 

Man of Steel gets hard, feels his resolve weakening!

 

 

I wish I saved that graphic from yesterday for today. I watched CNN for a while this morning and saw their talking heads saying stuff like, “What those reich-wingers are claiming Susan Rice did wasn’t a crime, we really need to focus on Russia and Trump!” when they could be assed to cover it. They’re mostly talking about some healthcare shit and RUSSIA HACKING THE ELECTION YOU STUPID AMERICANS!!!!!!

Watching Howard Kurtz on Outnumbered, he’s such a media defender, why does Foxnews pretend he’s a watchdog? I know why the Wash Post and CNN did so, he was defending their lies, but Foxnews confuses me.

 

 

Here’s someone who cares more about explaining CNN’s perfidy than I.

Since news broke Monday that the Obama Administration’s National Security Adviser, Susan Rice, directed the “unmasking” of NSA intercepts of Trump associates, CNN has raced to shoot down the blockbuster report.

CNN Tonight’s Don Lemon went so far as to announce he would ignore the news at all costs.

While interviewing a Democratic congressman, CNN’s Chris Cuomo claimed it was “demonstrably untrue” Rice sought surveillance of the Trump team, even as that’s exactly what yesterday’s reports prove.

I just point and laugh and comment about their standard standard, but having people take that stupid shit seriously is probably a good idea.

 

To steal a bit: The NY Post, two papers in one!

First, nothing to see here!

Former President Barack Obama’s national security adviser tried on dozens of occasions to learn the identities of Trump transition officials whose conversations with foreign officials were “incidentally” collected by US intelligence

Tried?

Nunes told reporters last month he briefed Trump on the documents because of concerns that Americans who were caught on routine surveillance were being “unmasked” for no reason.

The Obama administration shared the intelligence with officials throughout government because it feared the information would be covered up in a Trump White House.

Once the information was widely distributed, “intelligence officials” began leaking it and some of it appeared in media reports, including conversations fired National Security Adviser Mike Flynn had with the Russian ambassador to the United States.

Hmmm, seems she succeeded. Why the word “tried”? Remember, all journalists are trained in US universities to be lying sacks of journolist, it’s tough getting any that don’t suck the lefty narrative.

 

Editorial on same day (today, March,35th)

Do you suspect that the noise over Trump campaign contacts with the Russians is just a political hit arranged by Obama insiders before they left? You got fresh evidence of that Monday, with news that then-national security adviser Susan Rice was behind the “unmasking” of Trumpites in transcripts of calls with Russian officials.

Again, nothing on the public record so far shows that anyone on Team Trump said anything improper on those calls.

Maybe you should talk to your journolists about that there Mr. Editor.

 

Via Paco, we see this bit that reminds me of the 90s and why we have Drudge.

Ever since Mike Cernovich dropped the bombshell (about Obama’s newly discovered felony)…everyone has been wondering who within the Trump White House or the intelligence community supplied him with such a massive scoop.

But, as it turns out, Cernovich didn’t need a ‘deep throat’ within the NSA or CIA for his blockbuster scoop, all he needed was some well-placed sources inside of a couple of America’s corrupt mainstream media outlets.  As Cernovich explains below, his sources for the Susan Rice story were actually folks working at Bloomberg and the New York Times who revealed that both Eli Lake (Bloomberg) and Maggie Haberman (NYT) were sitting on the Susan Rice story in order to protect the Obama administration.

A bunch of our fine media betters knew about Monica Lewinsky blowing Clinton in the Oval Office but kept it quiet until Drudge posted the story.

As I saw somewhere today, the media has been in cover-up mode so much it’s going to be hard to pivot to a defense when they can no longer pretend it didn’t happen or it doesn’t matter that a POTUS used the gov’t against his political enemies.

No, not the IRS. No, not the DHS. No, not the Coast Guard. No, not the…listen, it’s the intelligence community. this one is about the intelligence community not his Chicago-Machine feloniosities using other federal agencies. Geez, stay focused.

 

More reports that CNN will have to ignore and explain why we need to to ignore it.

The National Security Council has uncovered computer logs that detail the instances former national security adviser Susan Rice requested and viewed records that included President Trump and his campaign staffers’ names in intelligence reports from July through January, according to a report published Monday.

Worst kept secret ever!

 

In the past month we have learned:

The Obama administration openly shared classified information with political appointees about Donald Trump in the summer of 2015, and likely earlier. The citation.

Obama’s attorney general sought warrants to spy on President Trump’s campaign team last June, and was denied last June by a federal judge. The citation.

Obama’s attorney general sought warrants to spy on a server at Trump Tower last October and was granted one by a federal judge. Ibid.

The Obama administration spied on President Trump’s transition team. The citation.

 

Well, some of us have learned that. There are many who knew all about it who are doing their best to hide it (see above).

 

Speaking of journolist, the story of the day is “O’Reilly sexual harassment symptom of Foxnews and Trump!”

First up, journolist tries to recruit the puppy blender!

Hi Glenn Harlan,

The recent sexual assault charges on FOX News star, Bill O’Reilly, is more reason to believe that the Trump era is leading to increased normalization of sexual assault against women. According to relationship expert, Wendy Strgar, “the culture of sexual violence not only remains rampant but is condoned at the top levels of our national leadership.”

I wonder if Wendy Strgar, relationship expert (she’s had thousands of them! Now she lives with her 12 cats while hoping to meet Mr Right!) has anything to say about a certain ex-POTUS who’s been credibly accused of rape while his wife held them down….destroyed their lives.

 

Next, CNN shows they got the memo!

There are women at Fox News who want to speak up. But they’re afraid. They’ve seen other women stand up for themselves — against former Fox News chief Roger Ailes, against host Bill O’Reilly — and lose their jobs as a result. Meanwhile, they’ve seen those men defended and handsomely compensated by the company.

 

Puffhos got the memo.

Variety too.

The NY Times of course, they probably sent the memo. They are also pretty busy defending their God-President and his peeps.

This one is hilarious.

President Trump sought to turn attention away from the Russia investigation on Monday, saying that “the real story” was what he called a “crooked scheme against us” by President Barack Obama’s team to mine American intelligence reports for information about him during last year’s presidential campaign.

Don’t ever change.

I was going to avoid it, but I just can’t.

 

Not really all that important or new, but a good article on What If?

What if a Republican had presided over Benghazi instead of Ms. “At-this-point-What-Difference-Does-It-Make” Clinton?
What if a Republican administration had intervened to prevent Arizona from enforcing federal immigration laws?
What if a Republican had decided to enforce provisions of the Affordable Care Act selectively, omitting, for the time being, those that were politically inexpedient?
What if a Republican had made a deal with Iran that all-but guaranteed their acquisition of nuclear weapons within a few years?
What if a Republican administration had spied on a rival presidential candidate, who then, to the surprise of wise men everywhere, became the disfavored president-elect?
What if a Republican administration had illegally leaked, from classified intelligence reports, the names of private citizens to the media?
What if, what if, what if?

Anybody who says our fine media betters would handle it the same if Chimpy McBushitler had done this to Obama is a lying sack of ignoramus.

 

 

I’m done boycotting the Russia deal, let’s do some other news.

 

Jack Dunphy, nom-de-tubes of a CA cop, is writing about privatizing traffic enforcement and he’s agin it.

Mr. Pritchard recommends decriminalizing the traffic laws, thereby taking police officers out of the business of enforcing them.

 

I’m fer it, so long as they try it in California.

If you’ve seen Chisum or Young Guns, you’ve seen what happens when you privatize the police. Privatizing that will give us private companies who own politicians being above the law as they screw people over with impunity, watching CA implode over that shit would be funny.

 

ACLU is right but wrong.

Harold Jordan, a senior policy advocate for the ACLU of Pennsylvania, penned an op-ed for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Thursday, which was reposted on the ACLU’s main website Friday, that said cops stationed at Pittsburgh city schools should be forced to continue working without sidearms…

“Having officers patrol the hallways with firearms sends a negative message to students,” Jordan wrote. “It makes many students feel that they are being treated like suspects.”

I’ve worked in two charger schools that had cops in the hallways. In one, it was necessary on a daily basis, in the other I only saw them being called into a class once or twice in a couple months.

What people should be upset about isn’t the fact that armed cops are there but that armed police are needed in a fucking school to keep the students from attacking each other or the teachers. Also, I’d bet a lot of students don’t feel like suspects, I’d bet a lot they feel more protected.

 

In Akbar Britain cultural suicide news, Easter Egg Hunt!

Theresa May has hit out at the National Trust for dropping “Easter” from its egg hunt, describing the decision as “absolutely ridiculous”.

It’s just so 21st century that something called, “National Trust” is selling out the nation’s values.

 

Yesterday I was wondering about the protests going on in Ecuador over their election, the lefty won and the righty’s supporters are claiming fraud.

At Babalu Blog, the place for all things Latin American Commie, they think it was fraud.

The people of Ecuador are refusing to ignore the flagrant fraud that took place during Sunday’s presidential election. For two straight nights they have taken to the streets to protest Ecuador’s wannabe dictator Rafael Correa’s brazen attempt to steal the election for his handpicked successor.

Lefties stealing elections is their M.O. so I wouldn’t be surprised. Look at what they tried to do here (see above).

 

Apparently, Black Lives Matter are demanding Mercedes now.

 

Let’s end on something that would be even funnier if it was accidental.

It’s very subtly funny if it’s on purpose, but if it’s on accident that just makes it a lot funnier.

 

 

 

 

I just cannot keep watching the news. We had months of reports of ‘leaked transcripts of wiretapping” that attempted to harm Trump, which immediately switched to “no proof of wiretapping!” as soon as that could harm Trump.

I’m not interested. At this point, I’m only wondering how the GOP is going to try to explain being feckless assholes who refuse to do anything they’ve been specifically elected to do. Like get the gov’t out of healthcare, secure our borders and enforce our immigration laws.

But since the ‘news’ is out, let’s get some NEWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Heavy on vids and pics.

First, some real news.

Geez, Trump is so fascist and hatist, mere proximity has turned Canada into a bunch of fascist haters!

Nearly half of Canadians want to deport people who are illegally crossing into Canada from the United States, and a similar number disapprove of how Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is handling the influx, according to a Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll released on Monday.

I do wonder how they reconcile that stance and their, Trump is a racist hater for wanting the same thing, stance. You know they’re probably mad at America over it, They’re America’s Illegal Aliens!

 

If you’re going to make fun of Trump, this is how to do it. Zapp Brannigan doing Trump quotes.

Perfect and hilarious. While we’ve never seen them in the same room together, I’ve never seen Trump wear velour. But then, the 70s were sort of a blur and that’s when he would have worn one.

We all have clothes from the 70s we’d like to forget.

 

Via this dude, we see that erstwhile QB Colin Kapernick had some luck on the free agent market!

We know he can scramble and throw a bomb. I’m not sure how he’d do against America’s defensive line, but I’d like to see!

 

Relatedly, via the Jawas, we see this bit of hilarity.

 

Boycott us? No! Boycott You!

Oh, and go fuck yourself. Especially considering the use of “repressive”, just cuz you’re trying to delegitimize their nation doesn’t mean they should be rude!

 

This Amtrack train came into the station through a snow bank, it’s sorta cool, but notice all the people filming this with their phones. Not a one of them realizes that what they’re filming could affect them in any way until it’s far too late. They’re just swept aside. I wonder how badly they, including our intrepid reporter, were injured.

Situational awareness, it’s not just for buying drugs in shitty neighborhoods you know.

 

Now, I could understand padded knees, but would someone explain these mom-jeans to me?

No wait, don’t. I’m sure it’s stupid and I’ve learned enough stupid things for the day.

 

 

US Women’s Hockey Boycotting Championships Over Equal Pay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I haven’t actually watched women’s hockey but if it’s as riveting as women’s basketball, I’m gonna assume there’s a reason for the disparity in pay.

 

Now this story is a perfect example of the problem with journalism today.

Some guy rammed his car into a tree, repeatedly. Here’s the problem.

Headline

Police: Man charged after crashing car into tree repeatedly ‘to prove a point’

Story

A local man is facing charges after police said he repeatedly drove a car into a tree on his property in order to “prove a point” to another resident at the address…

Bailey told officers that he had done so “to try and prove a point”…

he was ramming the car into a tree to prove a point…

 

Who: Local Man, What: Ram car into tree, Where: Pawcuatuck, When, 3pm for half an hour, How: By driving his car

They got the sensational stuff out of the way, tried to make him look like a dumb redneck, but nowhere do they tell us the important “Why”.

Not once do they mention the point he was trying to prove.

They make a point of telling us 4 times that he was attempting to prove a point, but they don’t mention the point or if he proved it!

Just shoddy journalism. How can we know if the point was worth it?

I also don’t see why the police were involved, he was on his own property destroying his own stuff, that’s none of their business.

But then, everything is now the govt’s business anymore it seems.

Into the Aaaaaahhhhhhhh.

Ice box:  that was Kingston last week after a “dusting”. It was below freezing for most of my stay. I saw the blizzard coming and my brother had to go back to work so I switched my flight to yesterday. It was a long day, but it was worth it.

 Aaaahhhhhh. That’s what I’m talking ’bout!

There’s a spring behind the laundry building on the right side that sorta ‘leaks from right to left down a wash behind and below that wall. There’s a lot of life around here, it’s like a bird, rabbit and squirrel sanctuary. Except for the hawks, owls and coyotes I guess.

I’m still a little burned out from my travails yesterday, it was a long day, so just a short round.

 

A little revisionist current events.

Or, some would say, Trump is hurting himself. Either way, there are troubling indications that President Trump is losing his battle with the Democratic Party press.

If it were just Minitrue, he would have a chance. Hell, if it were just the Democratic political/entertainment complex, he would be winning.

But he’s also fighting the GOP,

like McCain going after him for the bullshit Russia Hacked The Election hackassery.

Arizona Sen. John McCain said “there’s a lot of shoes to drop” regarding more information about President Trump and his team’s ties to Russia.

McCain said several aspects related to Trump’s connections with Russia needed more questioning during an interview on CNN’s State of the Union on Sunday.

Little Lord Graham 

President Donald Trump’s proposed budget is set to hit a brick wall in Congress, where some Republican lawmakers say the proposed cuts to foreign aid are out of the question.
“It’s dead on arrival – It’s not going to happen,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., according to NBC News. “It would be a disaster.”

Paul fucking Ryan

House Speaker Paul Ryan told his Republican colleagues in October that he was cutting ties with Donald Trump, saying he would defend the presidential candidate “not now, not in the future,” according to an audiotape of the call released on Monday by Breitbart.

That was from October, but have we seen anything from Ryan that shows he’s not still of that opinion?

Mitch The Bitch McConnell

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Thursday played down expectations that any tax package can be completed before the August recess, despite Trump administration vows to pursue “historic” legislation soon.

“I think finishing on tax reform will take longer,” the Kentucky Republican said in a Politico Playbook interview. “We do have to finish the health care debate … before we go to taxes.”

Which “health care debate” is all about… you guessed it! 

Indeed, the whole GOP establishment is fighting Trump.

The RNC is having a hard time finding Republicans who haven’t roasted Trump.

On Wednesday, the RNC’s Hispanic outreach director, Ruth Guerra, resigned from her post. Two aides told The New York Times that she felt “uncomfortable” working with Donald Trump, who has routinely made racist remarks about Hispanics during his presidential run. The RNC announced that Guerra would be replaced by Helen Aguirre Ferré, who furiously deleted scores of tweets attacking Trump.

 

“roasted Trump”, as you can see, means, “roast Trump daily”. You know, if you want to be technical. And accurate.

For the record, I typed each of the names with links above before looking for the links, I knew what I would find.

He’s fighting everybody who’s pissed off at We Teh Peepul for deciding to pay attention to the screwing we’re getting from our betters.

 

They’re relentless. Most of the media is still talking about Flynn for fuck’s sake. And that includes most of Foxnews. I can’t even watch Shep anymore, I just want to smack the ignorant yet oh-so-superior smirk off his face.

 

Related: CBO declares WE’RE ALL GONNA DIE IF THEY CHANGE A JOT OR TITTLE OF OBAMACARE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Congressional Budget Office said Monday that the White House-backed plan to repeal and replace Obamacare would result in an estimated 24 million more uninsured people by 2026.

 

When I first saw that I thought how funny it is that not forcing people to buy something means fewer people will buy it, then I saw some congresscritter make the same point and Minitrue was On The Job!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  with help from some helpful Republicans.

“If half of the CBO [report] is true, I think we should slow down,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said Monday.

Asked for reaction to the score, Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-La.), who is physician, said, “It’s awful.”

“President Trump says he wants as many people covered as under ­ObamaCare,” he added.

With this howler from that minitrue outlet in good standing, the Hill.

The findings from the nonpartisan CBO

Yeah. Non-partisan. We’ll go with that. It sounds so much better than ‘establishment pricks who hate the concept of America’.

Which howler is followed by another.

The findings from the nonpartisan CBO are significant because both parties have long pointed to the office’s findings when pushing legislation.

 

And that my friends is all they’re good for. Cuz they certainly aren’t any good at actually predicting shit.

 

Also related. A puppy blender post.

INDEED: “The implicit standard in analysis of the health insurance system is that every consumer must have government-selected coverage. But why?”

 

That’s because our fine betters are all saying that’s the standard and the media is happy to push it that way. They’ve moved the debate from “Should the gov’t be involved health care?” to “Of course the gov’t needs to be involved in healthcare, let’s argue about how much freedom we’re going to pretend to give our serfs.”

We no longer have just the Democratic political/entertainment complex pushing that shit, the GOP and much of Foxnews is doing it as well. Which makes it much harder for the idea that the gov’t should not be in charge of every aspect of our lives to be discussed.

It surely can’t be discussed in polite company.

They’re relentless. Much of America is getting sick of it. Which is exactly what our fine betters are hoping.

It reminds me of a young Tard dog learning a valuable lesson when he caught the cat he had chased a few times.

Chasing something is far different from actually catching it.

They’re chasing our complete subjugation and I don’t think they’ll like it if they get much farther along that particular spectrum.

 

 

 

From from fools and from sages.

But mostly fools, cuz there surely are a lot of them.

Hey, maybe tomorrow SMOD will take us away!

 

It’s funny how small the world is these days.

Did the French media conspire to destroy the presidential candidacy of François Fillon over the issue of his wife’s alleged non-existent job as his parliamentary assistant? Is Emmanuel Macron a candidate produced by the media? Does Marine Le Pen get a rough ride from the mainstream media in France?

How do you say, “Minitrue” in French? How about “NYTimesWashPostCNNABCCBSNBCetc.”?

 

I’ve been trying to figure out what this Geert Wilders dude is all about, but like most people hated by all the right “journalists”, it’s hard to figure him out, but this doesn’t sit well.

 

On one policy, leader Geert Wilders told Euronews he thinks the Koran should be forbidden in the Netherlands, just like Adolf Hitler’s “Mein Kampf”.

“I rather would have not Koran at all as we in Holland at least have outlawed Mein Kampf as well.

The problem with EUnuchs is that their masters sit on the serfs until the serfs get sick of it. Then you have The Terror and it’s no fun being the “Other” at that point.

It would be sorta funny if France and the Netherlands became fascist and forced it on Germany and Italy though, so we might have that to look forward to.

 

This one is so absurd it belongs in the chuckler at the end section, but it’s related to the above and it’s not an Onion article, so here it is.

Sven Pohl, 37, posted pics online of slices of toast with the dictator’s face burned on them.

His bizarre tributes to the Fuhrer breached Germany’s strict laws forbidding public admiration for the evil leader.

It led to police raiding his home in Dresden where they found evidence of drug trafficking.

For toast. They went after him for making toast. Pro tip, if you’re a drug dealer don’t advertise your nazi proclivities.

I do hope someone figures out a way to make Trump toast. Spreading it around various college faculty rooms would be all about Teh Win. The screeching would be hilarious.

 

Chicago, that toddlin’ town, went almost a week without a murder (just a few attempted murders, their murderers are obviously incompetent) and all the right people were celebrating, but the cops notice things.

But no one is noting that after a week of particularly warm weather, temps dropped back down to the regular below-freezing levels, putting a damper on the high spirits of the south and west sides.

Funny that.

 

Speaking of Chicago gangsters, Obama! As an aside, the journolist phrase for the weekend was “without evidence”.

Fortune, like any good Minitrue outlet, is trying to obfuscate the issue, but if you read far enough into the article, past all the “Trump is a doody-head” stuff, you get to this.

The roots of the FISA warrant were themselves odd. According to both Mensch and the BBC, they centered on a server in Trump Tower found last Spring to have been communicating with Russia’s Alfa Bank, itself reportedly with strong ties to Vladimir Putin. The FBI reportedly came to conclude that the communications were likely innocuous.

Huh, why it’s almost as if there is some proof!

A liar (Ruth Marcus) at the Fake News site, Wash Post, had this to say on Twitter

If Trump is correct about wiretaps, signals big trouble for him–a FISA warrant, federal judge finding probable cause for surveillance.

So I guess we’ll know how Minitrue will cover it, blame Obama’s chicago-machine lawless slimery on Trump.

 

Here’s one of the reports that seems to have some evidence that our fine Minitrue betters are denying exist.

Lawyers from the National Security Division in the Department of Justice then drew up an application. They took it to the secret US court that deals with intelligence, the Fisa court, named after the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. They wanted permission to intercept the electronic records from two Russian banks.

Their first application, in June, was rejected outright by the judge. They returned with a more narrowly drawn order in July and were rejected again. Finally, before a new judge, the order was granted, on 15 October, three weeks before election day.

A lawyer- outside the Department of Justice but familiar with the case – told me that three of Mr Trump’s associates were the subject of the inquiry. “But it’s clear this is about Trump,” he said.

I spoke to all three of those identified by this source. All of them emphatically denied any wrongdoing. “Hogwash,” said one. “Bullshit,” said another. Of the two Russian banks, one denied any wrongdoing, while the other did not respond to a request for comment.

Huh. Why, it’s almost as if Obama was a slimy, chicago-machine pol and used chicago-machine political slimery all the time! That’s crazy talk, to believe that you’d have to believe he used the IRS to go after political opponents and used the ATF to sell guns to Mexican gangs to gin up a controversy to take my guns!

Now, if you read the BBC article that I quoted, you’ll see it’s from when our fine media betters were trying to tie Trump to Russia, so in other words, oft evil will shall evil mar as their “Trump’s a Russian Puppet!!!!” story line exposed the more accurate story line, “Obama was a lawless POTUS that our fine media betters ignored.”

 

As our fine media betters are freaking out about Trump pointing out the perfidy and felony of their god-president, they’re ignoring a real intelligence failure (in both senses)

Last year, eight members of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence issued a demand that their staffers be granted access to top secret classified information.

The signatories to the letter were Andre Carson, Luis Guiterez, Jim Himes, Terri Sewell, Jackie Speier, Mike Quigley, Eric Swalwell and Patrick Murphy. All the signatories were Democrats. Some had a history of attempting to undermine national security.

Two of them have been linked to an emerging security breach…

Imran Awan and his two brothers, Jamal and Abid, are at the center of an investigation that deals with, among other things, allegations of illegal access.  They have been barred from the House of Representatives network.

A member of Congress expressed concern that, “they may have stolen data from us.”

All three of the Pakistani brothers had been employed by Democrats.

Huh, why…it’s almost as if our fine media betters are rooting for one side over the other?!?!?!?!?!?!

As for the actual breach, who gives a shit? When Obama was not selling our secrets to our enemies Hillary was allowing all and sundry to steal them from her bathroom server. The only secrets we have left are all the felonies and treasons the Dems committed during the Obama admin.

 

Another Breakthrough In Feminist Mathematics!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In much the same way that feminist education scholars have shown, via discourse analysis, the incompatibility between femininity and mathematical achievement, both Walker and Stinson show the complex ways successful black mathematics students must accommodate, reconfigure or resist the discursive construction of a normative white, masculine mathematical subjectivity.

 

Yawn, it’s old.

 

I keep seeing this again for some reason

neither

That depends if it’s a girl dog or a boy dog.

answer

Gotta have access. What use is being able to lick your balls if you hide them? Plus, that makes a walk with the guys a lot easier

 

Cracking Me Up

Posted: February 28, 2017 by veeshir in Trump

I’ve been watching Trump for 41 minutes longer than I’ve watched any political speech except Bush’ 2002 SOTU and the speech 10/2001, yes, I’ve been watching for 41m 10s.

I saw earlier that Nancy Pelosi told the Dems to not be childish. I was surprised she did it and even more surprised that she meant it. I figured they’d act like little bitches and Trump would be at 75% approval tomorrow.

He’s been trolling the Dems hard. I cannot believe they didn’t explode when he bashed extra-criminal illegal aliens and then Obamacare.

The GOP applauded his call to repeal Obamacare, I wonder if they’re going to be applauding when he starts letting them know he expects them to actually follow through.

“Paid family leave”, he is a Northeast liberal after all.

Now he’s in the pandering section. Have fun! (changed 20 seconds later!)

I wuz wrong, he wasn’t pandering, he was trolling using Dem constituencies. Bwaahahahahhahahahahahahaha

Oh, and this.

simple-yet-elegant

Brilliant!

You’ll finally have your pet’s attention when you try to take a picture.

Although….they really should have used cheese.
