In Veeshir’s post, there are links to his stories on the blog, to get to Veeshir’s post, you gotta walk, the darkness, of Veeshir’s mind

 

First an aside. I’ve been reading a lot of Kindle books by lesser known authors, either using Kindle unlimited to read it for free or buying books for $2 or $3. I get history and a lot of sci-fi, including military sci-fi and there are a lot of guys writing military sci-fi who know absolutely nothing about the military, weapons or science. Not a blessed thing.

One guy I tried to like wrote about ships going .1c and yet, 1000 km was far away. I mean, he wrote that the enemy was minutes away and they were 1000 km away. Other guys have nukes go off 100 miles from the space ship, in space, and the ship is destroyed. The guy I was reading last night has absolutely no idea what a ‘sabot’ is and yet, he used the word approximately 4000 times. Another guy had an LT order his patrol to, “Put a round in the chamber and keep your fingers on your triggers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” If it had been a book instead of a tablet, I would have thrown it across the room and burned it. If any LT in the history of ever gave that order his 1st sgt would have shot him in the face immediately I figure.

I know that people do stupid things so I should accept that, but when they have an entire Space Marine Corps acting like idjits, I’m done.

Oh well, at least I occasionally find a good book, like We are legion. We are Bob and BV Larson. His Star Force series, starts with Swarm, is very darn good.

 

Let’s Tube!

Puppy blender has a link that says

FUNDAMENTALLY TRANSFORMED: Americans don’t trust anymore, and that’s a big problem.

huh, I wonder why that is. I mean, it’s not as if everybody has found out that lying works. Aided and abetted by our fine media betters.

 

Minitrue sez “Nearly Half Of All Americans Think Trump Is Moving Too Fast!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!(inhale)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So…… does that mean that over half think he’s doing okay?

finds that 47 percent of Americans think the speed of the president’s actions is too fast and 35 percent are satisfied by the pace. Another 10 percent believe it isn’t fast enough, and 7 percent report having no opinion.

Oh okay, so 47 think too fast and 45 think it’s right or too slow.  So basically, the headline could be that nearly half are pretty happy about what he’s doing but this is Minitrue!

 

Don’t forget, Trump has a lot of cleaning to do in the bureaucracy, I wonder if this is sabotage or just ignorance.

How many arrests have there been of foreign nationals for those seven countries since 9/11?” Robart asked a Justice Department lawyer in court on Feb. 3. When the lawyer said she didn’t know, Robart said, “Let me tell you. The answer to that is none, as best I can tell.”

It turns out the judge, and Nadler, and everybody else repeating the talking point had it wrong. Last year the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest released information showing that at least 60 people born in the seven countries had been convicted — not just arrested, but convicted — of terror-related offenses in the United States since Sept. 11, 2001. And that number did not include more recent cases like Abdul Artan, a Somali refugee who wounded 11 people during a machete attack on the campus of Ohio State University last November.

Never ascribe to malice along that which could be adequately explained by malice, stupidity and ignorance! But I’m going with just malice on that one. Situational ignorance is what lawyers do.

 

The ACLU morphed from a civil rights group to a “civil rights” group so slowly I didn’t even realize it. From SCCop Blog.

  • According to a comprehensive new study by the University of Chicago Crime Lab, the city’s exclusive contract with the American Civil Liberties Union could be having a significant impact on Chicago’s crime.
Gee, no shit?
  • “This is one of the few dramatic changes where the timing does fit the increase in homicides and so it seems it would be rash to reflectively rule this out as a possibility,” said Dr. Jens Ludwig, the director of the University of Chicago’s Crime Lab.
Golly, exactly as we pointed out when we dissected the 70+ page report that killed the street stop. But what do we know? We’ve only been doing this for decades now.

So what you’re saying is that lefty grandstanding and willful ignorance kills those they claim to be ‘protecting’?

Whodathunkit? You know, besides anybody not a sucker of lefty talking points.

 

Speaking of lefties killing people, Berkeley!

The major student-run paper of UC Berkeley ran five op-eds Tuesday defending the riots on campus, and arguing that violence was an acceptable response to a speech from Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos.

Jebus. On the one hand, they’re advocating stifling free speech using violence, on the other hand, they’re destroying their own homes to do it, on the gripping hand, try that shit someplace where leftists aren’t in charge and find out that felony rioting and cold-cocking people is not consequence-free.

I wonder why they never come to Apache Junction to protest. I know I’d welcome them, there are a shitload of coyotes around here (my dog is outside barking at some as I’ve been typing) and they gotta eat too.

 

Okay, now I do not trust any of these ‘leaks’ but I hope this one is accurate.

In his first call as president with Russian leader Vladimir Putin, Donald Trump denounced a treaty that caps U.S. and Russian deployment of nuclear warheads as a bad deal for the United States, according to two U.S. officials and one former U.S. official with knowledge of the call.

Like just about everything Obama did, that was a bad deal for America.

 

 

I really have to wonder how lefties can doublethink their way to spending so much time and effort defending people like this.

diversity

 

How the fuck did Obama so screw up the world that now Russia is helping the Taliban to fight us?

Gen. John Nicholson, the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan, testified today that Russia is helping the Taliban

WTF? No, really. WTFF?

I’m actually surprised the remake of Red Dawn didn’t have us invading Cuba, shooting school children and making adult males stay in camps watching speeches by Ronnie Raygun.

 

Yesterday I was wondering if Tsar Putin I and Sultan Erdogan would have a remake of the Russo-Turkish war of the 19th century, why?

Under “Alliance of convenience” you’ll see the Putin/Erdogan alliance in Syria.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has sent condolences after a Russian airstrike accidentally killed three Turkish soldiers in northern Syria, according to BBC

The soldiers were supporting Syrian rebels in efforts to capture the city of al-Bab from so-called Islamic State, BBC News reports.

It is part of a broader offensive by Turkey to push IS and Kurdish fighters away from Turkey’s southern border.

Russia and Turkey, who back opposing sides in the war, have been jointly targeting IS in airstrikes recently.

 

It seems to me that there are a lot more ways for that to go wrong than right. Maybe Tsar Putin I wasn’t playing chess, he was actually playing checkers. Unfortunately, Obama was playing tiddly-winks.

 

Well this is a year or more late.

19-year-old Willem Pennings built an Arduino-powered machine that quickly sorts M&Ms and Skittles by color

We’re fresh out of Skittle-shitting unicorns.

 

The finish is gonna be Dave Barry heavy, but let’s start with something that’s making me contemplate the uncontemplatable.

A top lawyer for internet retailer Amazon is taking a victory lap for the company’s role in the Ninth Circuit Court’s decision to retain the temporary restraining order halting President Trump’s travel ban.

Yes, not shopping at Amazon.

I’ve been shopping at Amazon since 1997 or so, I just got “Kindle unlimited” and I’ve been enjoying it, but now I have to think that maybe Amazon can suck my dick. I’m at least getting rid of Unlimited and telling them why. If they want to join the culture wars, that’s their deal.

I just sent an email explaining that I cancelled my Kindle Unlimited subscription because I do not want to subsidize their politics and that it will take very little to get me to buy my books elsewhere. Man, I am very pissed off right now. Can nobody in the fucking world just do their business and keep politics out of it?

 

Eh, let’s Dave Barry.

Only in post-2016 America would this headline need to be written.

Headline: TO CLARIFY: IT WAS NOT HIS PAIN

Article: Vaginal pain helps exonerate man accused of murder

 

At any other time in the history of ever that headline would have been only funny, now it’s necessary. I’m not sure if that makes it funnier.

 

We all saw the link where some guy tried an illegal wire transfer and blamed it on Jesus, but I didn’t see anybody pointing this out.

A unemployed Lakeland man faces a five-year prison sentence and a fine of up to $250,000 after making a $7 billion fraudulent wire transfer (emphasis me V)

7. Billion. Dollars. I have to respect crazy that strong. He could have gone for a few $mil but if you’re going for the gusto, go for the fucking gusto!

 

An orange alligator was spotted in Florida and this journalist did not work “Trump” into it at all! Impressive. The editor noted in the caption that the neighbors called it “trumpagator”,  but the journalist did not take a shot. That must have taken a lot of willpower.

trumpagator

 

Okay, I saw this link with pictures of guys dressed like this and I figured it was a joke.

gurk

Okay, so now I still think it’s a joke, just not on purpose. The one on the left is not the lamest, most ridiculous costume this guy makes. No, really.

gurkle

 

Since everything I know about high society I learned from reading High Times I have to ask, do people actually wear that stuff?

If so, where? When?

If women were wearing that I’d ask, “How much for half-and-half?”, is that just male-hooker wear?

I don’t really want to know all that much, I just get a little curious about ridiculous things sometimes.

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

 

Topical!

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

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

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

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

 

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

Relatedly,  selectively stupid hate!

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

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

Yeah but…..compassion!….tolerance!……

This is the money shot

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

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

 

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

 

Should I get worked up in defense of these assholes?

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

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

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

Speaking of Failure Theater!

house-of-shut-up

Fuckheads are slow-rolling.

Primary season is just around the corner!

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Minitrue: Lying Liars Who Lie!

or

Minitrue: Purveyors Of Fake News Since 1895!

 

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

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

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

 

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

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

Hahahahhahahahah. I love this part.

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

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

Hahahahahahahahahaha

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

 

They’re better than you!

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

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

 

The Hill has high hopes.

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

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

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

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

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

This should end well.

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

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

So how is it going?

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

Carlos asks a question

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

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

 

It doesn’t rain but it pours.

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

Penumbras are always used to screw us.

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

So we have that going for us.

 

Trump Says, All Your Safe Space Are Belong To Us!

 

Via Paco.

 

Some of the Trump-haters have resorted to saying the stupidest liess about Trump, it’s so bad I don’t even bother clicking on stories about some stupid thing Trump did because the stories have all fallen apart as soon as I start reading them. It gets boring weeding my way through hate-fantasies so it’s probably gonna be a long time before I bother doing anything but pointing and laughing a lot.

First, this isn’t stupid I’m just curious, has anybody heard about rioting in Romania?

The left-wing government had scrapped the controversial decree that would have shielded many politicians from prosecution for corruption. But protesters are still brandishing banners, waving flags and blowing whistles and vuvuzela horns. They say they believe the government is still not to be trusted, with many chanting “Resign! Resign!”

“They are corrupt. We want justice. … The government will still try something [with the decree],” Emma, 24, one of around 250,000 protesters that media estimated were in downtown Bucharest, told the news agency Agence France-Presse.

Sounds very Trumpian. I wish them luck, with Trump they might even get some help from America.

 

On to stupidity, like this idiotic article from Mother Jones (Puppy blender link)

in many ways, the story of Keith Ellison is the story conservatives wanted to believe about another cerebral African American community organizer from the Midwest—Barack Obama.

No, that’s the way nitwit lefties such as Mother Jones think conservatives viewed Obama.

I do like the way they call them both “cerebral”. If you keep repeating The Big Lie, people will believe it.

 

Am I gonna have to make fun of another Clinton now? At least this one is nearly as stupid as she is corrupt. (in defense of that, she’s really corrupt)

Chelsea Clinton took to Twitter on Tuesday to express her outrage at a CNN interview with Rep. Sean Duffy (R., Wis.), who said terror attacks carried out by the Islamic State pose more of a threat than those conducted by white terrorists.

 

I am surprised she’s admitting that we need to treat those Berkeley and NYU terrorists very harshly.

Unfortunately, they have the wrong picture to illustrate the article. We here at DPUD have managed to obtain an exclusive photo inside this fightin’ d’oh-jo.

Diversity Is Strength!

 

Which of these is supposed to be funny?

First

Former Vice President Joe Biden has been officially named a University professor, Penn President Amy Gutmann announced Tuesday…

Under the title of “Benjamin Franklin Presidential Practice Professor,”…Biden (yes, Joe Biden)

But here’s the wildcard, he’s a professor, but…

He will not be teaching classes,”

Second 

The military and intelligence communities have been instructed that national security briefings for President-elect Donald Trump are to be restricted to 140 characters or fewer, according to sources familiar with the matter.

jcs-tweet

 

Third, a saddened Navy says goodbye to Obama’s Sec of the Navy

In news that has every sailor and Marine in the Department of the Navy literally wailing with inconsolable grief, President Trump recently announced the nomination of a former soldier to be the next Secretary of the Navy, thus officially replacing the “greatest naval hero of the last century,” Ray Mabus….

While serving for eight years as the 75th Secretary of the Navy, Mabus was held in the highest regard by the sailors and Marines he led.

Such near hero-worship was due to his wildly popular orders like gender-neutralizing the Navy’s rank and ratings system, naming warships after progressive social justice icons, forcing the integration of women into combat roles and onto submarines despite idiotic “concerns” from admirals and generals who had only 35 or 40 years of experience, and also trying to fuel every ship and aircraft in the fleet with patchouli oil.

 

So… first, second, third or all three?

 

A post-mortem of the election

What if it’s malice and stupidity?

Via a commenter at David Thompson, we see this fine example of malicious stupidity. That’s a link to some Berkeley paper with stories about this totally tolerant, loving, caring, murderously evil lefty. One of the stories leads to this, which while malicious and stupid, it has one of the most hilarious ledes you’ll see.

A series of violent clashes this weekend involving neo-Nazis permitted to rally at the state Capitol was initiated not by the white nationalist group but by counter-protesters, a law enforcement official said Monday.

Heh.  The mostly peaceful protesters are also more violent than real nazis, not just the ones they make up in their feverish imaginations.

A similar melee broke out in Anaheim earlier this year when members of the Ku Klux Klan announced they were holding a rally at a park. Counter-protesters showed up early and waited. When the first Klansmen arrived, they were set upon by the group.

Three people were stabbed at the Anaheim rally. At the Sacramento rally Sunday, seven people were stabbed and nine were hospitalized.

They’re more viciously violent than other, self-avowed, nazis and white supremacists.

At least that time they were real nazis, unlike the other day. What does that have to do with the Berkeley nazi-violence?

The Nazis are the violent ones — we are acting in self-defense. We need to take them head on, confront them, but with as many people as possible.
— Yvette Felarca, counter-protester

That’s one of the fine, tolerant, totally not maliciously stupid Berkeley denizens.

They’re not going to be happy until their version of the Word is accepted by all. And they spread the Word by the sWord.

 

Here we have a discussion of the malicious stupidity of blaming progriots on anybody but violent lefties.

Antifa is short for “anti-fascist” and is pronounced an-TEE-fah. According to left-leaning tech magazine Wired, they are “militant anti-fascist[s]” and “anarchists prone to property destruction and online abuse.they double down on political polarization, driving the national narrative even further from center.” For a deeper explanation into its historical roots, see The Washington Post, Wired Magazine, and USA Today. (hahahahahahahaha V)

I left that last sentence in there for some funny, getting a “deeper explanation” of anything but stupid malice from the Wash Post is just funny.

But the point about how the Dem-media/entertainment complex has spent a while now viciously othering people like me, now they’re trying to bring it all together but…

rioters-2nd-amendment-comic

That stupid thing is likely to come back to haunt them.

 

This is a fine example of stupid and malicious people thinking other people are stupid.

In worksheets provided to Live 5 News, sixth graders at Alston Middle School were asked to fill in blanks about Islam and match up statements from the Quran with the five pillars of the religion.

So parents are thrilled with their kids being converted to another religion so the school folks had this to say.

One of the next civilizations beings studied in the course will be ancient Rome that will include the study of Christianity

They have a curriculum there and for some reason it looks as if stuff is meant to be taught chronologically, so I guess Islam was before Rome and Christianity.

Or maybe they decided that the kids needed to be taught that Islam Means Peace because of some recent event.

 

Why I Want Rand Paul In The Senate Gumming Up The Works And Didn’t Want Him As POTUS Except As To Gum Up The Works.  He’s upset about some ‘neo-con’ in the Trump admin, but I wanted to write about this.

the neocons (all of them Never-Trumpers) continue to maintain that the Iraq and Libyan Wars were brilliant ideas.

Okay, that’s more stupid than malicious. Which of these neo-cons say the Libyan Stupidity was brilliant?

As for Iraq, he’s arguing against what was. “We shouldn’t have done that!!!!!!!!!!!” is stupid and malicious. It’s the opposite of useful.

We were fucking done. All we had to do was keep troops there for a long time but they would not have had to fight much. The same way we pacified EUnuchstan and Japan. But no, Obama ran away and now the region is even more fucked up.

No matter who thought what about the beginning, it was done. We had created something that could have turned into a decent country, but the run-away types like Obama, with Rand fucking Paul cheering him on, didn’t like that so they threw it away.

And now we’re worse off than we were before.

 

A drudgetaposition.

CNN’s Excuse For Banning Kelly Ann Conway Doesn’t Add Up!

Trump’s Folks Won’t Go On CNN

 

More stupid than malicious describes Katy somebody pretty well I’d say.

As we know, there’s, since 2000, been a couple dozen suspicious deaths of journalists in Russia who came out against the government there. Donald Trump has made no secret about going after journalists and his distaste for any news that doesn’t agree with him here. Do you find that this is a dangerous path he is heading down?

She’s So Brave!!!! to be STANDING UP TO TRUMP!!!!!!!!!! Why, she’s risking a mean-spirited (but hilarious) Tweet!!!!!!!!

Moe-Ron.  Don’t show her this.

Hey! Let’s Destroy Hockey! First, we’ll keep them from fighting or even playing really hard and now this!

Every NHL team now has an “LGBTQ-inclusion ambassador”

Really?

“Every day throughout February, Hockey Is For Everyone activities will focus awareness on such areas as LGBTQ; ethnicity and gender equality; socio-economic status and those with disabilities.”

Jebus, can’t we just play games anymore?

 

There’s a job listing in the NY Post and I figured some of you live in or near Florida.

Couple wanted by cops for courthouse oral sex video

Not sure why the cops want that, but there it is.

Coupla selfies that made me laugh.

selfie-stick

I have the same selfi-stick, including the side-folder, but I do not have the stylish white or black sandals. I haz sad face.

 

Not sure why, but this just cracks me up.

selfie-2

 

I’m very happy selfies were way after my time.

Just not as endy. I expect that to change once this changes.

no-invasion-season those temps are in Fahrenheit. It’s a couple months from invasion season in Ukraine and Korea.

Fakenewsers extraordinaire have the funniest question in the funniest article.

The administration is complying with the order. But Trump’s increasingly alarming tweets and this type of rhetoric about the judge’s authority leads us to a question: What if it didn’t? What if Trump or any president — decided too much was at stake or that he didn’t recognize “this so-called judge’s” authority?

What if? No really, what if? No, I’m serious, what if? No, I’m really, really serious, what if?

I guess we’ll never know.

Speaking of Fakenews, some highlights. A very non-exhaustive list of some fakenews from outlets like the Wash Post.

 

Moh-ron self-identifies!

for-teh-win

I don’t know, does you?

 

Our fine, tolerant, totally not absofuckinglutely insane leftist friends are freaking out and it just keeps getting more and more ridiculous.

Now, apparently the Patriots were Trump and Atlanta was Hillary so they’re freaking out over that.

They’re freaking out over anything.

I have to wonder, how many of these people will realize at some point that they’ve become pathetically ridiculous?

redundancy

 

Yeah, I’m going with “Not very many” too.

 

Coupla cool things.

Flight attendants are trained to catch slavers and they seem to do at least fairly well at it.

I hope so, there are few things worse than slavers.

 

This link has a bunch of CIA maps back to the 40s and a bunch of other stuff that’s been declassified.

 

Okay, is this the worst journalist in the country?

Police in Williamson County are looking for a convicted drug dealer who is supposed to be serving 12 years in prison.

Deangelo Martinez Radley, also known as Angelo Radley and Deangelo Davis, has several active warrants out for his arrest.

He is considered to be armed and dangerous and has allegedly made previous threats to law enforcement officers.

There is not a thing in that story about why he is not in custody, just the passively voiced, “is supposed to be serving 12 years in prison.”

So why isn’t he serving his sentence? How did they lose him?

There’s so much that story does not tell us. All it is is a APB telling us to be on the lookout, not a news article giving us information.

The answer to the question above is, of course, “No”. They all suck. There are probably 5 journalists left in America.

The state of journalism in America is pretty pathetic.

Not a lot of cognition though.

 

When lefties get their violence on, it’s “Rowdy”.

Congressman Tom McClintock, a Republican from California, on Saturday faced a rowdy crowd at a packed town hall meeting in Northern California, and had to be escorted by police as protesters followed him shouting “Shame on you!”

And no arrests were made.

When conservatives do not get violent, merely quote the Constitution, well, that’s entirely different. (From the Age Of Obama)

Said Hart “I tried to express my opinion and tell them that my Constitutional rights had been violated. I began quoting the Constitution, line by line…

…When the Harts left the gathering, they were followed into the parking lot of the community center, and the same young man …took down the license plate number of her vehicle and said – “See if you are able to pay your property taxes NOW!”

Eileen didn’t understand what that shouted threat meant, until she returned to her home with her family.

When they arrived, there were 5 police cars from the Franklinville Police Department. They advised her that the Clayton Police wanted to talk to her about the allegations.

States Hart “For the record, both the police officers DID acknowledge that it was “an allegation.”

Her purse was taken from her and she was put into a “paddy wagon,” transported to the police station-

Her young daughter witnessed the events and was traumatized to see her mother being treated like a common criminal.

She was arrested and booked for “terroristic threats” and “contempt.”

At the police station, she was handcuffed to a chair.

And that’s why we have Trump.

 

Via David Thompson, we find this Brave Wymyn!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! who was at the Berkeley Progriot. Just so you know, she’s talking about Trump supporters, not the mostly peaceful rioters.

 

Exporting Our Values! Here we have folks turning scientific institutes into religious institutions.

A high-level whistleblower has told this newspaper that America’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) breached its own rules on scientific integrity when it published the sensational but flawed report

While in Turkey.

Yamanlar College, a private school established by educators affiliated with the Gülen movement in the western province of İzmir, has been turned into a religious vocational school, part of a group known as “imam-hatip” high schools.

The library of the school was converted into a giant mosque and renamed the “July 15 Martyrs Mosque”…

Just like NOAA!

 

Scott  Adams discusses Ben Affleck and claims it’s an example of “cognitive dissonance”

Watch for the moment Ben has to hallucinate Sam’s opinion from the reasonable position that many Muslims worldwide have non-liberal views to an hallucination about “All Muslims are bad.” Sam and Bill both clarify their viewpoints, with data, but Ben is struck deaf to it. All he can hear is the absurd absolute “all.” He is literally hallucinating.

 

I’d say that’s giving old Ben too much credit. For cognition that is.

He just knows he’s smarter than the other person so therefore, the other person has to say stupid, hateful things or else Ben can’t keep his feeling of smug superiority.

I don’t know if cognitive dissonance is the best descriptor for that, I’d more go with “aggressively-willful ignorance”.

Especially since we’ve all been here

When you see that reaction in your debate opponent, you won the debate – hard – but you didn’t change anyone’s mind.

I’d say that’s the opposite of cogitating.

 

In Well, Duh News,

A transexual murderer who was allowed to serve his sentence in a women’s prison has been moved amid claims he was having sex with female inmates.

If Klinger’s gonna wear a dress to get out of the Army, don’t you think some guys might wear a dress to get laid?

 

Via Paco, we see that first impressions can often be wrong. A story about how the first time people see something they often get things wrong.

 

About 2,500 years ago, Hanno the Navigator became one of the first Europeans to see a band of gorillas. He had been sent off to explore Africa and had gotten used to bumping into strange and exotic tribes.

So when he found an island full of gorillas, he figured that they were just the funniest-looking group of people yet. Hanno wrote that he’d found “savage people, the greater part of whom were women, whose bodies were hairy, and whom our interpreters called Gorillae.”

He and his men tried to introduce themselves to the gorillas, but the gorillas weren’t too communicative.

I can just see them getting pissed off at the gorillas for being so rude. Since they specifically mention that there were a lot of women, they probably also tried to get a little frisky. I wonder how the gorilla-ettes took that.

 

The USS Gerald Ford decided to try out its catapult but they didn’t want to waste a perfectly good airplane in case it didn’t work right. So..what to do, what to do.

Above the Post

WTF?!?!?!?!?! Matty Fucking Ice can’t do it all, but when he needed to do it he couldn’t.

Tom Brady always does what he has to do.

Knew It.

Dr. John Bates, the former principal scientist at the National Climatic Data Center in Asheville, N.C., told the Daily Mail NOAA’s 2015 study was meant “to discredit the notion of a global warming hiatus and rush to time the publication of the paper to influence national and international deliberations on climate policy.”

Bates said NOAA scientists made a “blatant attempt to intensify the impact” of global warming to eliminate the “pause” in temperature rise since 1998. The Daily Mail claims Bates showed it “irrefutable” evidence NOAA’s study relied on “unverified” data.

 

Global Warmmongers lie. It’s what they do.

 

I did not know that.

Putin admired his (Super Bowl V) diamond ring and Kraft let him try it on.

“I could kill someone with this ring,” Putin remarked. When Kraft put out his hand to get his ring back, Putin — surrounded by three KGB agents — pocketed the ring and took off.

Geez, I knew Putin was a thuggish, midievil thug, but that’s fucking brazen. That happened when Bush was POTUS, why the fuck didn’t he do something about that?

 

I knew that.

The mistakes have not just been from newer liberal news outlets such The Huffington Post or BuzzFeed, but from legacy media like Reuters, The Washington Post, and The New York Times.

What follows are several botched stories or conflicting reports since President Trump took office.

They’re not so much “mistakes” as “deliberate lies” and that last sentence is pretty misleading. What they “botched” was that they’re not smart enough to actually come up with plausible lies so they keep getting caught.
I did not know that.

Your family (in Yemen V) is suffering because our president (Trump V) is reckless…and his administration is incompetent,” Pelosi said. “How and why they did this is because they’re grand illusionists. Every time they have a problem with something, they create another problem.”

So it’s Trump’s fault that Yemen is Sietch Terror.

Oh wait, that’s just Nancy Pelosi foaming at the mouth until words come out.

I already knew that.

 

I knew that.

A major newspaper demands Patriots’ quarterback Tom Brady answer for his support of President Trump. Lady Gaga will use her halftime show to sing about “equality” and “inclusion.” The insufferable and polarizing cast of “Hamilton” will sing “America the Beautiful.” There will be not one but two ads hectoring us over the issue of immigration.

Lefties have to politicize everything. Including the Super Bowl.

I’ve been flipping to Star Trek on BBC instead of commercials. I’ll be outside reading for half-time. I’ll read tomorrow about what I’m supposed to be OUTRAGED!!! about.

Or…I could just laugh as they’re really just frothing and creating new Trump voters with every screech.

 

Via SC Cop, Everybody should know this.
