Why It’s OK That Hillary Clinton Just Pissed in Your Ear

Because we’re winning, that’s why


Well yeah, Democratic voters throw off “Jesus-y” ideals like ethics and principles. They are obsolete concepts replaced by important new morals values like fighting microaggressions and structural racism.

Thinks Secretary of State information has the same value as nude selfies.

What difference, at this point, does it make?

And who can forget the timeless classic; But Bush!

The NC Gay A

I know there’s a lot of other pressing shit going on but since the NCAA is only concerned with guys pressing their dicks into other people’s shit being able to eat a wedding cake I thought I’d tool around on this topic.

To wit, Indiana Governor Mike Pence’s recent signing of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act that ostensibly allows private business owners to not be forced to violate their faith in the wake of the federal government and their minions in the courts enthusiastically sodomizing businesses into closure for not celebrating the homosexual agenda.

Enter stage left. NCAA President Mark Emmert immediately threatens to take his balls and go to Fire Island or wherever:

The NCAA, which is holding the Final Four men’s basketball tournament in Indianapolis next week, also expressed concerns. NCAA President Mark Emmert said the Indianapolis-based group would examine “how it might affect future events as well as our workforce.”

By all means, please reevaluate where the NCAA’s modern day slavery will play or be based out of in the future. A man who governs a same-sex sports league that demands billions of dollars in television revenue and alumni donations and only provides a half-assed education, if that, to so many student athletes is concerned that his employees aren’t treated fairly at some hypothetical bakery. He sells shirts with unpaid players’ numbers on them, demands that they take a four year vow of poverty, and they don’t get paid a dime. They sustain physical injuries that they carry for the rest of their lives and he could not give a damn.

But this, this is just a Golden Gate Bridge too far. The NCAA may not be able to blackmail the State of Indiana into accepting the recent unholy union of the Gaystapo and the federal government in their celebratory mazel tov as they stomp their matching jackboots on the throats of the Little Sisters of the Poor, Notre Dame, Hobby Lobby, etc. but there are a number of things that are in their control.

For example, how committed are the league’s players to taking it to the hole? I mean I know the NCAA screws their players over regularly but they could easily demand that their players sign a statement affirming their commitment to gay rights before being allowed to play.

A number of them appear to have tattoos of religions that do not condone homosexuality. Those should be removed as they are quite microaggressive.

March 31st is International Transgender Day of Visibility. Perhaps the men’s teams and the women’s teams can switch uniforms for that day to underscore the NCAA’s commitment to denying both science and Nature. The fact that they haven’t done this yet offends me.

Given that NCAA games can be located in every state of the union, some of which are bound to adopt similar laws to Indiana’s, this is a declaration of war that could start a competing league. Why should a state like Indiana have to continue to provide logistical support to this non-profit association? Does the NCAA build gymnasiums and football stadiums or do the taxpayers of the states that support these laws?

This isn’t a codification of state sponsored discrimination. It is a natural reaction to a federal government that is forcing private citizens to take part in ceremonies against their religious beliefs or be shut down and it is without end. If the federal government can force you to violate your religious beliefs, they can compel you to do anything.

Personally, I don’t think any of these issues are cut and dry. How is this different than a “No shirt, No Shoes, No Service” sign? A bar that says they reserve the right to refuse service to any customer?

Ideally, if someone does not want my business – say a restaurateur who puts a “no guns in my restaurant” sign to discourage concealed carriers – then I just don’t frequent that business. I can’t demand that the federal government sue him into providing private catering services to my NRA function at the gun range. The right to bear arms is a civil rights issue after all. This man, let’s call him Randy Rayburn, does not even have a religious exemption on this issue. His property rights should not supersede my civil rights.

But people can’t just be left alone. The Soup Nazis must be brought before Nuremburg. To proactively protect those who may want to buy a cake from someone who doesn’t want to bake them a cake and who base the decision to buy a cake solely on who doesn’t want to make it for them so they can sue them.

We must be supremely intolerant of the intolerant in the name of tolerance.

Ben Carson Is Gay (Because He Chose To Be)

This is the second overtly gay act committed by Ben Carson by my recollection. To begin, Ben Carson started the week off right with a little chin music to one of the favorite lies the Left tells themselves. Namely, that people are born gay:

The remarks were made on CNN’s “New Day” in response to a question from host Chris Cuomo, who asked if Carson thought being gay was a “choice.”

“Absolutely,” Carson replied.

Asked why, he went on to explain his prison theory. “So did something happen while they were in there?” he said. “Ask yourself that question.”

He continued, invoking his argument against same-sex marriage: “Why do gay people want to get married? Because they want to have various rights,” he told Cuomo. “Property rights, visitation rights … Why can’t any two human beings, I don’t care what their sexual orientation is, why can’t they have the legal right to do those things?”

And then the piano player stopped. It’s not just property rights and visitation rights, the issue is having “special” rights which is ultimately what Carson said. Defining a lifestyle choice as a protected status like age, race, religion, or gender gives a personal choice the same legal protection that those who have been historically discriminated against solely on the basis of their appearance. I’m a little iffy on the religious one in that regard unless you’re wearing a yarmulke, a cross necklace, ash on your forehead, a hijab, or some other religiously identifying attire or accessory but obviously if you want time off from work to celebrate a religious holiday then it becomes quite apparent.

No one can just look at you and tell you’re gay – thus the prejudice. They can discriminate against you for a host of other reasons that are completely legal. Such as being, short, fat, ugly, a slob, a pink mohawk, offensive to the nose, they remind you of an ex, a jacked up grill or a host of other physical attributes that are all perfectly legal for you to be discriminated against.

An attack on this issue is an attack on a founding tenet of the Left. And once you go down that road, you either need to say something you have no intention of apologizing for or not say it:

Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson apologized for commenting Wednesday that prisoners’ changes after they leave jail proves being gay is a choice, but said that the science is still murky on the issue.

And then, in a radio appearance later Wednesday, he criticized CNN for airing the comments he’d made in an interview and said he won’t be addressing gay rights issues for the duration of his presidential campaign.

He backtracked in a statement afterward, saying he “realized that my choice of language does not reflect fully my heart on gay issues.”

Gay heart reflections aside, Carson said what he meant. His backpedaling is only because he mistakenly thought no one was watching CNN which is understandable. But like his previous cowering from a college graduation speech, which was over gay marriage too (in March of 2013), because of the hue and cry of those that shall not be offended, Carson picked the fight and then tucks tail and runs.

You can be heterosexually oriented and be abstinent. Or monogamous. Or polygamous. You can be bisexual and screw anything that moves. You can choose to deny science and pretend you’re another gender. Or, you can choose to be homosexual and have sex or not. But at the root of all of them is a choice. You may choose one because you feel society thinks that’s how you’re supposed to be or not. And you want to have some special protection if you feel you’re in the minority in that regard but you shouldn’t.

You shouldn’t define yourself as a human being by what you stick up your ass or someone else’s. Or whose genitals you stick in your mouth. You’ve really lowered the standard for what a human being is if that is the sole determining baseline for your existence. Or your race. Or your gender. If that is all you are, then you are not much of anything.

Having said this, Carson did not make that argument. He is not a suitable candidate for elected office and people need to quit running his flag up the pole to see who salutes it. For a neurosurgeon, he stumbles over his words as much as Hillary Clinton tripped over her old dick when her non-State Department she-mail came to light.

Let him oversee healthcare issues but he is not a politician and needs to stay that way.

Exit Bumper: The Lemonheads, “Big Gay Heart“. That one goes out to you, Ben Gay.

Israel RIP: 1948 – 2015

The Hope and Change is weak with this one. An unfortunate turn of phrase from the candidate that Obama is using US taxpayer money on to overthrow Benjamin Netanyahu:

Chairman of the Labor-Hatnua list Yitzhak Herzog has once again refused to rule out joining a coalition led by Binyamin Netanyahu, instead insisting that he will be the one to form the next coalition government.

Herzog vowed that, if elected PM, in his first 100 days as prime minister he would focus on three issues in particular: solving the housing crisis, “renewing relations with the US and the (political) process with the Palestinians.”

“If need be, I will travel to Ramallah and present to the Palestinian Parliament a vision of hope,” he declared.

So, he won’t work with Netanyahu but will go surrender to whatever Hamas wants. There are no more “Palestinians”. There is only Hamas.

“I am the only one who can replace Netanyahu and therefore I am prepared to face him and discuss Israel’s burning issues.”

The only “burning issues” that Israel will be facing if Obama successfully overthrows the Israeli government is who is going to put out the nuclear fires in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem when Iran drops the bomb on them.

And if they vote for Herzog, they will have voted to destroy themselves after being unduly influenced by the Hamas in America – namely Ayatollah Obama and the Leftwing Jews who support their destruction. How could this even be a contest?

Some Yidiot goes around parroting Hope and Change after the destruction our country as suffered under that monosyllabic pablum and supposedly educated people fall for it.

From Partisans to Propagandists

Call it the Voxification of journalism. In the reverse evolution chart that begins with non-editorializing journalism and runs through to the knuckle dragging click-baiters at Gawker and Salon we find a new species; Mendax Maximus.

This newly discovered beast attracts readers in a similar fashion as its slightly more evolved cousins. With the exception that its premises don’t even have to be true. It attracts a readership that isn’t concerned with putting out good ideas or even calling out the opposition’s bad ones. It plays to the lowest common denominator, the destruction of the opponent by any means possible – deception included.

Exhibit A: Scott Walker Wants Colleges to Stop Reporting Sexual Assaults

Under Walker’s budget, universities would no longer have to report the number of sexual assaults that take place on a campus to the Department of Justice. Under Walker’s plan, university employees who witness a sexual assault would no longer have to report it.

There are no policy recommendations in Walker’s budget how or what would replace these reporting mechanisms. The Governor simply instructs that they should be deleted.

(No link for Jezebel)

Only one problem – it didn’t happen.

U. of Wisconsin asks Walker to remove redundant sexual assault report requirement

Also note that this breed also seems to have only vestigial traits of shame or integrity.

Remember When Elvis Met Nixon?

Ummm…yea. That’s what happened at the SNL 40th Anniversary carpal tunnel inducing, three and a half hour long circle jerk last night. Elvis walked right up to Nixon and got his picture taken with a DEA badge:

But hamming it up at a pig party with a degenerate like Al Sharpton? Just because he’s Sizzlean now don’t mean associating with him is not career (or at least what’s passing for her career) suicide.

I’ve heard all the usual excuses: She’s living in their heads rent free, no matter what current idiocy she’s involved in that she comes out smelling like a rose, that she quotes Martin Luther King Jr. and sets herself up as a tar baby to throw themselves against, etc.

Bullshit. She is making it up as she goes along. There is no master plan. There is no platform. And ultimately, there is no future for her as the leader of anything except maybe a website or a loose organization of unherded, pseudo-conservative/libertarian cats. Showing up at that event to begin as NBC had been playing those “I can see Russia from my house” clips all week long is confounding to me. You’re never going to respect someone in the morning who you didn’t respect the night before. That’s not how getting fucked works.

She may, however misguided, think that rubbing elbows with the people who irradiated her politically is some kind of “I’m bigger than whatever you throw at me” gesture but she’s going to have to change her stance on illegal immigration to find enough workers to clean the bed she shit by mugging with Sharpton.

And then later playing folksy (read: drunkenly) with Alec Baldwin. That is some dick on a cheese grater stuff right there.

I say that. True believers are too invested in a Palin electoral success that’s never coming and the MILF mujahideen start sharpening knives and ululating if you disrespect the object of their political beat-off fantasies.

So jerk ’em if you got ’em, guys. She ain’t getting any younger.

#GrandmothersKnowBest Investor Edition

First, son-to-a-Nigerian prince, Marc Mezvinsky married Chelsea Clinton. *St-rike!*
Then, he gets her pregn’int. *St-rike Two!*

Now this? *You’re out!*

The hedge fund co-founded by Bill and Hillary Clinton’s son-in-law suffered losses tied to an ill-timed bet on Greece’s economic recovery, according to documents reviewed by The Wall Street Journal.

Say what you will, he can spot a dog. But maybe #GrandmothersKnowBest when it comes to making risky investments pay off.

However, when it comes to getting vaccinated for communicable diseases, I’d trust that #GrandpaKnowsBest in this case.

2016 GOP Follies

The GOP clown show is fully on display.

First, we have that bloated tub-of-guts Chris Christie rolling around on the floor at a radio station in Philly. Governor, you were willing to take on the unions, but ever since you became COOTUS’ bottom boy, it’s clear that you need to move on and find another line of work.

Next, Lispy Graham is getting all hot-and-bothered and delusional, thinking that anybody gives two craps about him running for the nomination. Lispy, we don’t want you in the Senate, or anywhere else in public life. Just go home, put on a big sun hat, pour yourself a nice big glass of Country Time™ and drift away.

Our buddy Mitt decided to pull his hat back out of the race, thank goodness. You were too limp-wristed to knock off the worst president in the nation’s history in 2012, why does anyone on God’s precious green earth think you deserve to be brought out of mothballs? The fact that the establishment power players in the GOP find Jeb “more exciting” than you is an indictment of both them and you.

Speaking of Jeb, if he’s the best we’ve got, I’m going to bite down on a shotgun sandwich.

There is but one answer.

Pearl Harbor By Design

I am not a military strategist but, if you will indulge me, how wise is it to compact so many naval assets into such  a tight, hostile area to our interests on all sides?

The U.S. Navy doubled its presence in the eastern Mediterranean over the past week, effectively adding two destroyers to the three that generally patrol the region. The five destroyers are carrying a combined load of about 200 Tomahawk missiles, officials say.

Shouldn’t you, oh I don’t know, be sure that you are going to get authorization before putting all of your eggs in this basket?  To begin, you’re telegraphing your every move which may be the point if you are a little bird who wants to puff up your little bird chest.  However, if the vote comes down on “no” and you attack anyway then you are creating a Constitutional crisis by choice.  If the vote comes down on “no” and you leave the area then you hand Syria a major victory over the paper tiger that is the U.S. under Barack Obama with all those destroyers making a u-turn and sailing off into the sunset of the Post-American world.

And to what end?

Mr Obama said any strike would be to “send a shot across the bow” and give a “pretty strong signal that [Syria] better not do it again”.

None of this makes any sense. “Send a pretty strong signal”???  Who writes this shit?  A leather belt sends a strong message.  Tomahawks send death from above.

You want Assad gone but you’re not going to remove him.  You want to spank him on the ass with Tomahawk missiles and then turn around and leave anyway?  He’s not a dog who pissed the rug “and you better not do it again”.  Our military is not called upon for “norm enforcement” and to be global disciplinarians.  They are trained to kill and if needed to try and keep the peace afterwards.

Hang the albatross of Syria around Russia’s neck.  They are the ones providing them with all of the logistical support and weapons they need to attack us and put down their bloody rebellion.  They are the enemy.  The operative phrase is “selling Assad weapons to attack us”.  Putin has declared war on us by his Syrian proxy through these actions.

Not in the eyes of Barack Obama though.  Syria is a mess to try and pin on Republicans somehow.  You know.  The real enemy in all of this.

If you are Russia or China, the time to attack us is now.  They could wipe out our naval might in a day and we’d be playing catch-up for years.  That might be the point of Obama’s consolidation of our naval fish in the Mediterranean barrel.  If he was fine with getting Seal Team 6 killed as tribute to his Taliban “peace partners” and letting Benghazi burn so the Brotherhood could get the weapons Congress wouldn’t send to them then setting our destroyers out to be attacked sounds like it is right up his alley.

If he would invite a Muslim cleric to damn Seal Team 6 to hell at their own funeral, there is absolutely nothing beneath this traitor.

Lynch Mob “Justice” Promised From The KKKlan With A Tan

Twitchy has what’s sure to be an overflowing toilet of murderous thoughts from the brain trust of Trayvon accomplices.  Where is the law?  Here are direct threats made to an individual that they are going to murder him themselves and they are made with impunity and re-tweeted thousands of times.

I made one Trayvon Martin post that I am aware of.  It seemed to be an open and shut case from the beginning so the only thing to argue about would have been the media’s ginning up of racial animus against white people for something a hispanic did.  Which they cheerfully did with shameless zeal. Let’s see how prescient I was at the opening days of this bro-haha.

Amazing.  I know.  Like reading a crystal ball.

A community organizes a neighborhood watch after a series of home invasions.  One of the neighborhood watchmen spots a tall figure in a hoodie milling about outside of an apartment on a dark, rainy night.  The figure backtracks and attacks the watchmen as he goes back to his car.  While scuffling on the ground, the suspect notices a gun in the watchmen’s waistband and informs him that he’s going to die tonight.  The watchmen pulls out his gun and shoots him after his head was being pounded into the concrete.

So now comes the reckoning.  The “White” Hispanic wannabe cop is exonerated of murdering the black wannabe gangster after said wannabe gangster attacked the wannabe cop for following him and then threatened to kill him.  All of the evidence of the gangster wannabe’s crimes were withheld from the jury and they still found the wannabe cop innocent.  The usual race hucksters are holding gas and matches with tepid appeals to calm before setting their own neighborhoods on fire and attacking innocent passersby.  For Trayvon’s hallowed memory of course.

I’m just curious.  Earlier this month a gamer from Texas was brought up on charges with penalties for up to 8 years in jail for “making threats” as he joked about shooting up a school after losing at a video game.  Why would Twitter users flashing guns and promising to specifically kill George Zimmerman be immune from similar prosecutions or lawsuits from the targeted party?

I realize Attorney General Holder will not be filing charges against any of “his own” people.  But what about Twitter?  Just this week, Twitter announced that they would comply with local laws to “out” users who made what they consider to be racist, sexist or homophobic remarks from prosecution or scorn.  How is making death threats not included unless they agree with those threats?

Twitter has agreed to hand over the details of people who post racist and anti-Semitic abuse anonymously on the micro-blogging site, it emerged today.

Following a long legal battle, the US-based company said it would cooperate with authorities in France who want to bring alleged criminals to justice.

The breakthrough is a significant test case for the millions who use social media to express hatred and anger without revealing their identities.

Yes, totalitarianism in pursuit of thoughtcrime persecution is considered a “breakthrough”.  But what of death threats?

The Capitalized Term “Twitter Rules” under their Terms of Service Agreement includes the following:

 

  • Private information: You may not publish or post other people’s private and confidential information, such as credit card numbers, street address or Social Security/National Identity numbers, without their express authorization and permission.
  • Violence and Threats: You may not publish or post direct, specific threats of violence against others.

Spike Lee, Roseanne Barr and others have already attempted to steer lynch mobs to Zimmerman’s private homes.  Yet they are still allowed on Twitter.  Thousand to tens of thousands of hoodie enthusiasts are making direct threats to murder George Zimmerman today yet where are these enforcers of civility at Twitter and Facebook and any number progressive social media sites.

They are, in fact, enablers of these calls to lynch mob justice and should either shut those accounts down or be sued into bankruptcy for being the platform that tacitly allowed it after it was brought to their attention if harm comes to Zimmerman, his family or whoever happened to be misfortunate enough to live at the addresses where the aforementioned morons directed their assassins.

 

Gabby Giffords Gives Us A Piece of Her Mind

Er, what’s left of it anyway in this smarmy, disingenuous, crayon scrawled, color-by-numbers NY Times op-ed:

On Wednesday, a minority of senators gave into fear and blocked common-sense legislation that would have made it harder for criminals and people with dangerous mental illnesses to get hold of deadly firearms — a bill that could prevent future tragedies like those in Newtown, Conn., Aurora, Colo., Blacksburg, Va., and too many communities to count.

Gave into fear?  Those people looked straight into what used to be your face and voted the conscience of their constituents.  That you can’t understand that may be written up to damaged ear drums or loss of cognitive abilities or what have you.  But make no mistake.  Let me be clear.  It took courage to stand up against the rotten, emotional blackmail perpetrated by your fellow Grabbies.

I always suspected she had something against minorities but her lies about this pathetic attempt to manipulate the public by Obama wearing a stole made out of the dead pelts of tender children makes me think she’s also a self-hating handicap.  Can’t depressed people defend themselves, too?

I know what it feels like to take a tough vote. This was neither. These senators made their decision based on political fear and on cold calculations about the money of special interests like the National Rifle Association, which in the last election cycle spent around $25 million on contributions, lobbying and outside spending.

So 40+ Senators were bought off with less money than Michael Bloomberg has spent in the last two months?  We should get the NRA to run the Treasury with that kind of ROI.   This is more than just making an argument that no one is acting in good faith and has legitimate concerns about a bill that was not going to be allowed to be debated.   It is about dehumanizing your enemies.  Kind of like Jared Loughner did before he tried to wipe a few out.

Speaking is physically difficult for me. But my feelings are clear: I’m furious. I will not rest until we have righted the wrong these senators have done, and until we have changed our laws so we can look parents in the face and say: We are trying to keep your children safe.

I’m sure a few thousand women who visited a Philadelphia abortion clinic and whose uterii look like the inside of Grabby’s cranium and whose children’s remains are being snaked out of the toilet they were flushed down or thawed out in the stale milk cartons that constitute their final resting place might disagree about the scope of the shit that Gabby Giffords gives about the kids vis a vis – Their Safety(tm).  Exponentially more kids died at Kermit Gosnell’s cloven hooves on the altar of choice than those sacrosanct more advanced fetuses greater angels of Sandy Hook.

But, ugh.  I do agree with Gabby.  Listening to her speak is physically difficult for me as well.  I’m furious whenever I see Barack Obama doing a Jeff Dunham impersonation and sticking his hand up her ass to make her mouth move.  Despite how old the act has gotten, there is always a fresh coat of Murphy’s Oil on her when she’s taken out of the box. *tap, tap, tap*  Is this thing on?  Apparently, not.

I am asking every reasonable American to help me tell the truth about the cowardice these senators demonstrated. I am asking for mothers to stop these lawmakers at the grocery store and tell them: You’ve lost my vote. I am asking activists to unsubscribe from these senators’ e-mail lists and to stop giving them money. I’m asking citizens to go to their offices and say: You’ve disappointed me, and there will be consequences.

If she wasn’t already half an invalid, I would have said that last line is a dog-whistle to incite murder against the Senators who voted against this atrocity of a gun-grab bill.  Maybe Gabby can encourage “mothers” to write letters to their Senators laced with Minute Ricin in the likely event that they don’t run into their Senator at the grocery store.

Mark my words: if we cannot make our communities safer with the Congress we have now, we will use every means available to make sure we have a different Congress, one that puts communities’ interests ahead of the gun lobby’s. To do nothing while others are in danger is not the American way.

“To do nothing while others are in danger is not the American way.”  She says this with a straight face.  Or as straight as her face will get.

A couple of Navy SEALs, intelligence officers and a raped Libyan Ambassador were unavailable for comment.

Delenda Est CPAC

There were very few rays of sunshine if I am to believe the coverage of CPAC Republican Party navelgazing this last week.  Mitt Romney’s first choice for President, Ohio Senator Rob Portman, selfishly came out in favor of gay marriage because his son is gay.  If only his son was a cocaine addict like Joe Biden’s daughter perhaps we could get Republicans to end the War on Drugs!

The news that Senator Rob Portman of Ohio has become a supporter of equal marriage rights for gays and lesbians because he himself has a gay son was a surprise. That’s because Portman is not only a staunch conservative but also an important member of the Republican Party establishment; he was a key adviser to Mitt Romney during his Presidential campaign, his debate-prep partner, and he was seriously vetted for Vice-President on the G.O.P. ticket. Many people, including myself, predicted that Portman would be the V.P. pick, and some believe that, had Portman been chosen, Romney could have won.

The New Yorker says this with a straight face.  Romney/Portman could have won what exactly?  Fourth place in Iowa for the Democratic primary?

The more I’ve been thinking about this, the more it is bothering me.  So long as I have this right:  Rob Portman’s son comes out of the closet to his parents.  What right does Rob Portman have to out his son to the world for what he mistakes as an attempt at political gain?  Mental note to Will Portman:  Don’t volunteer any other personal information to your dad you don’t want broadcasted on CNN.  Be really courageous and say you’re bisexual.  Why do I only get to marry one sex?  Enough on that.

What was once a rabblerousing, base motivating exercise in competing ideologies within the Republican Party is now nothing more than the establishment’s half-assed effort to homogenize opinion in advance and somehow get a good review from the Washington Post.  Which ain’t gonna happen:

Maybe it’s a sign of the times, but CPAC wasted little time before tacking the immigration issue.

The first speech kicked off at 9 a.m., and by 10:45, immigration was front-and-center with a panel discussion titled, “Respecting Families and the Rule of Law: A Lasting Immigration Policy.”

Predictably, much of the conversation dealt with how conservatives who support securing the border must also adopt a more compassionate tone when discussing immigration.

Respecting (Illegal) Families and the Rules of Law?  Pick one.  Besides, what is there to discuss?  Obama, ICE and Napolitano have already passed de facto amnesty and several states are giving illegal aliens discounted college aid far below what legal citizens in an adjacent state would have to pay.  We are already in a lawless time.  Worse than lawless actually.  No laws for some and rigidly enforced laws for others.

I live in Nashville, Tennessee and we are a de facto sanctuary city.  Construction is booming and at any time of the day illegals in hard hats are jaywalking from wherever a parking spot is found on the way to the construction site.  Our mayor welcomes them.  Local attorneys provide them pro bono services to keep them in the country illegally.  Local businesses hire them so they can avoid paying taxes.  It is illegality on top of identity theft on top of tax evasion on top of screwing over the poor, benighted souls produced from our public education system who have to compete against them.  And so very compassionate.

The fact that this gRINgO breed of Republicans thinks that they can out pander and out-bribe illegal Latinos is beyond misguided.  A “compassionate tone” does not replace the fact the problem is not the messenger but the message.  You are rewarding theft of services, rewarding lawbreakers versus those who are following the rules and exposing the rest of us to potentially dangerous criminals and re-introduction of once controlled disease that we now have no immunity to or antibiotics to defend against.   Political correctness is going to kill us.

With the exception of Rand Paul, Ted Cruz and very few others, CPAC has staked out an illegitimate claim to the mantel of conservatism with its Stalinist/Boehner-esque purge of dissenting Tea Party voices.  Delenda est C-PAP.

Now go brush off Dan Quayle and his son so you can foist him, Jeb Bush (the omnipresent answer to a question no one asked) and all the other “It’s My Turn” self-entitled RINOs / establishment born scions of privilege to lay claim to their family’s feudal throne of Big Government Republicanism.  Then piss on our legs and tell us you’re severely conservative.

NOTE:  To any future candidates of this dead party, do not ever hire a career Republican consultant.  Pat Caddell said it as caustically as needed and it’s a pattern I’ve noticed for years –

“In my party we play to win. We play for life and death,” Caddell said at a panel in a room that was only one-third full when it started and was standing room only once word spread throughout CPAC that Caddell was blistering the Republican elite. “You people play for a different kind of agenda…Your party has no problem playing the Washington Generals to the Harlem Globetrotters.”

Caddell said this mentality infected Romney, whose campaign consultants thold him to “back off” toward the end of the 2012 election and failed to realize that “you must also get your base” while courting independents.

He then blasted the “CLEC–the consultant, lobbyist, and establishment complex,” which he said was a “self serving interconnected network of individuals and organizations interested in preserving their own power far more than they’re interested in winning elections.”

Your inexperience gets sabotaged within from your consultants who are always working for the other guy.  You’re a flash in the pan.  The Bushes are eternal.

“Just follow the money,” Caddell told a rapt audience. “It’s all there in the newspaper. The way it works is this–ever since we centralized politics in Washington, the House campaign committee and the Senate campaign committee,  they decide who they think should run. You hire these people on the accredited list [they say to candidates] otherwise we won’t give you money. You hire my friend or else.”

Financial corruption is a key component of the current process, according to Caddell. “There’s money passing under the table on both parties. Don’t kid yourself…If you can’t see racketeering in front of you, God save you.”

A must read and watch.

 

My Dinner With Zero

How you been? Good.

Last night we got to witness THE perfect contrast between the (admittedly tiny) freedom-loving wing of the GOP and the old guard of gutless country-club grifters.

On one hand, you had Paul, Lee and Cruz questioning whether or not it was wise to give the executive branch the freedom to assassinate its own citizens with drones. A simple question really. When your leaders are soulless idealogues, perhaps this type of power should be carefully considered before being handed out like popsicles at a 6-year-old’s pool party.

On the other, you had McShame, Lispy and our own beloved Corker breaking bread with the very same commie who has repeatedly pretended to play nice while turning around and stabbing them all in the back as soon as the cameras show up. If I were dumber, I would say that these Senators are simply naiive, but these jackals are in it for themselves as they’ve always been. I hope they kissed his ring as they entered.

Lawmakers emerged from the powwow describing it as a positive meeting and a friendly gathering that focused on the possibility of eventually reaching a deal on the budget and deficit reduction. But the meeting does not appear to have been any kind of a negotiating session – rather more of a way to build trust and relationships that have been absent for much of Obama’s term.

The meeting is part of Obama’s sudden new outreach to Republicans. He invited the senators to the dinner, and he has also asked House Budget Committee Chairman Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) to have lunch with him at the White House today. The committee’s ranking member, Democratic Rep. Chris Van Hollen of Maryland, will also join them.

Emerging from the gathering, Sen. John McCain of Arizona gave reporters the thumbs up, as did Sen. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma, who was close to Obama when the two served together in the Senate. No word on whether they were referencing the food or the meeting.

Our one-party political crime syndicate continues apace. Thank God for the few who are still willing to buck the system in the midst of a massive lost cause.

MOAR:

Just in case you’re not clear on the situation or have been living under a rock for 8 years, McShame and Lispy (as well as Lamar! and the rest of the crew) need to go. Yesterday. They are the cancer. Paul/Cruz/Lee are the chemo.

Who Isn’t Responsible For The Sandy Hook Slaughter?

If experience has taught me anything it is that the actual shooter cannot be held responsible for what happened.  Obviously.  Jared Loughner was not responsible.  Sarah Palin was.  Timothy McVeigh wasn’t responsible.  Rush Limbaugh was.   Lee Harvey Oswald wasn’t responsible.  Lyndon Johnson was – but I digress on that point.  We can’t pass the Adam Lanza Registration Act or wargame the Cuckoobird Matrix to see which fine, upstanding Liberal Arts major is going to come down with a case of the shooties or stabbies.

What poor, disaffected youth was not hugged enough – or maybe hugged too much!  Like Goldlilocks, we can’t find that “just right” balance.

So who is to blame? Because, by God, We Have To Do Something…Anything ™.  Preferably before this crisis has gone to waste.  We can discern how the media will react since it’s a rerun.

Like all good fascists, Michael Moore tried to disarm all Americans in Bowling for Columbine after another couple of pampered blue-state rejects decided to shoot up their high school.  A shooting that would later be glamorized in the television series An American Horror Story that sought to humanize the school shooter.  Expect the cavalcade of hypocritical Hollywood A listers to flaunt their high school diplomas too as they make a living in tv and movies where they blow through more ammo on the big screen than they do cocaine in their personal lives.

Violent TV Shows and Music Officially Not Responsible For Anything you blameshifting gun nutters.

Over the years everything from goth culture, violent video games, movies, music, prozac, adderall, gangster rap and somehow rightwing radio seems to catch the blame for the thousand failures they weren’t.  None of which are going to be blamed this time.  With the exception of Rush Limbaugh who is responsible for everything bad that happens in the world.

Don’t Do What Darth Did.

Not this time though.  The fix was in before the killer was wrongly identified.  It was automatic assault rifles that were banned but are now flooding the schoolyards (OMG!!! The Children!) even though no one outside of a gun dealer can own an automatic weapon.  And in the meantime, every amateur Pat Robertson will hammer the square peg of their pet cause into the bullethole of reality.

On the right and the left.  Unashamed exhibitionists flogging themselves senseless in full view of The Children!!!(tm) everywhere to this XXX-rated grief porn until the waterworks squirt like the cathartic money shot.

None will ever ask why is it the “gun free” zones seem to be attacked so frequently or that the people who demand that you be defenseless in order to frequent their business or forced to attend their school bear no responsiblity for protecting you when you do so.

We’re just having a dialogue don’t you know?  A dialogue that always supports infringing on the Bill of Rights in order to protect the powerful instead of meaningful reforms to bad laws that can ultimately protect future victims.  Now that would be a revolutionary act in the age of the stupid and opportunistic.

I Demand UN Observers On The Ole Miss Campus

Aren’t a few of them still around after monitoring our elections anyway?  After all, I wouldn’t want them to not be around for The American Spring.

If these protests on the Ole Miss campus were in Egypt or Libya, Obama would already be ordering drone strikes and funneling weapons to them:

JACKSON, Miss. — A protest at the University of Mississippi against the re-election of President Barack Obama grew into crowd of about 400 people with shouted racial slurs as rumors of a riot spread on social media. Two people were arrested on minor charges.The university said in a statement Wednesday that the gathering at the student union began late Tuesday night with about 30 to 40 students, but grew within 20 minutes as word spread. Some students chanted political slogans while others used derogatory racial statements and profanity, the statement said.

The AP, of course, goes on to deride the protesters as being the youth movement of the KKK.  Presumably because none of them sexually assaulted any of their reporters or called for an Islamic caliphate.

Kids, you know what you’ve got to do.  Burn that mofo to the ground and occupy the administration buildings.

When Obama calls out the National Guard on you, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Springsteen will be singing songs about tin soldiers and Nixon coming.

 

Absolute Moral Authority: I’ll See Your Sheehan And Raise You A SEAL

For instructional purposes, let’s assume every Leftist calling themselves a “Democrat” is suffering from Stage 4 Obamnesia and are having a hard time understanding why the Benghazi debacle is such a big deal.  Most US Ambassadors to other nations aren’t signing up for a suicide mission.  Chris Stevens certainly wasn’t and neither were the few protectors he was given.  Much fewer protectors than Valerie Jarrett I might add even though he was in a war zone of Commander Leave-No-Drone-Behind’s making.

The father of a former Navy SEAL killed in the Libya terror attack last month said Friday that U.S. officials who denied a request for help while the diplomatic compound in Benghazi was under attack “are murderers of my son.”

Charles Woods was reacting to accounts by Fox News sources that a request from the CIA annex for backup was denied by U.S. officials. His son, Tyrone Woods, was killed in the Sept. 11 assault.

“They refused to pull the trigger,” Woods said. “Those people who made the decision and who knew about the decision and lied about it are murderers of my son.” 

Woods said he forgives whoever denied the apparent request, but he urged them to “stand up.” 

Intelligence building for weeks and pointing to an attack on the anniversary of 9/11 went unheeded.  Oh, but there is so much intelligence out there they’ve said.  Unlike say, one Richard Clarke memo saying somewhere, some time, some place Osama bin Laden is going to try to attack the United States – again.  Mainly, because he’s still around since Clarke failed in his job for eight years to stop him.

“Send help!” the Ambassador cries to a stonefaced Hillary Clinton.  Why do you need help??? We liberated Libya.  “You’re welcome!”, she replied.

A distress call goes out.  The barbarians are literally banging on the gates and there is nothing but voicemail answering in Washington, D.C.  It’s the dinner hour, dontchaknow?  That’s the best case scenario.  The worst case is that the Not Ready For Primetime Players were paralyzed by wanting to get permission to fly into Libyan sovereign air space.  The space we provided them while they refused to protect our embassy.

What do we honestly expect Obama or Clinton to do in this situation?  To behave Presidentially?  Now who hasn’t been paying attention for the last four years?

With troops an hour away, Hillary Clinton, Barack Hussein Obama and Leon Panetta made a conscious decision to leave their representatives’ fates to an al Qaeda mob.  No back-up.  No fly-by.  After all, you can’t just send the most sophisticated and heavily armed military into a conflict that hasn’t already been wargamed for months.

The U.S. military did not get involved during the attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, last month because officials did not have enough information about what was going on before the attack was over, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta said Thursday.

At a Pentagon news briefing, Panetta said there was no “real-time information” to be able to act on, even though the U.S. military was prepared to do so.

“You don’t deploy forces into harm’s way without knowing what’s going on,” Panetta said. “(We) felt we could not put forces at risk in that situation.”

Apparently al Qaeda in Libya was slyly not updating their Twitter feed to provide their exact GPS coordinates.  When the Chinese or the Russians attack, I hope they will be respectful of our need to prepare first.  Regardless, what’s done is done.  Leon Panetta would not send our troops in to save our Ambassador and his team because they would not be prepared for every eventuality.  Unlike an unarmed diplomatic team purposefully made defenseless and whose concerns were ignored for months who should have known better.

Are any of our other Ambassadors in hotspots listening to this?

Which brings us to Cindy Sheehan.  I know we have a longstanding rule about not bringing Mama Moonbat’s name back up on this blog but this is relevant.  For years, Sheehan and “Camp Casey” were covered and promoted by the Leftwing Media while Bush was in office. For years, Sheehan defiled her son’s memory and sacrifice to be a useful media tool against George Bush.  But where is this same media for Charles Woods?  Is the loss of his son somehow less worthy since there’s a “D” in the White House for the next few days? Maybe Woods should travel abroad and call Obama the terrorist that he is to the delight of the NY Times editorial board.

Mother Sheehan allegedly had Absolute Moral Authority ™ because her son died on a mission he volunteered for twice. Is he supposed to camp out on the streets of Hyde Park, Martha’s Vineyard, or San Francisco and Las Vegas star-studded fundraisers to hold up posterboard signs,  dance with Al Sharpton or hug on Hugo Chavez when his Navy SEAL son was made to die because it was inconvenient for Obama to leave the campaign trail and focus on his job for a few hours?  The one job he actually has to do.  He had one job!  That was it.

As ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, Google Current, the New York Times, the LA Times and the rest jockey to change the subject in the waning days of this election, the one thing that can’t change is what bald-faced propagandists they’ve been throughout this scandal from Candy Crowley on down.   Charles Woods raised a certified hero and they have kidnapped his son’s story and are holding it in the concrete basement of an undisclosed location so that it never sees the light of day.  Al Qaeda in Libya killed the people in our embassy.  The Mainstream Media buried the truth with them and blamed it on a Youtube video.  If they think that the Islamonazis riot over low-rent Youtube videos, just what do they think is going to happen when Harvey Heavy Weinstein spikes the Osama football right before the election?

We should probably go ahead and arrest him now.  Pre-emtively placate the savages by beheading in advance of its release.  The future does not belong to those who slander one of Allah’s most loyal followers.

Woods is being forced to give his interviews to Glenn Beck and Lars Larson for Christ’s sake.  Is Scott Pelley too busy gobbling down Obama’s protein throatshake to dust he knees off and cover a bona fide scandal not involving a BBC television host?  People died in this one.

Woods, in interviews earlier this week, also described a series of conversations he had with administration officials at the memorial service held Sept. 14. He said that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton — despite signs early on that militants were behind the attack — pledged to him at that event that she would pursue the maker of an anti-Islam film that had been linked to other protests. 

“Her countenance was not good and she made this statement to me … she said we will make sure that the person who made that film is arrested and prosecuted,” he said on radio host Glenn Beck’s online show, adding that she also apologized.

Woods said he “could tell that she was not telling me the truth.” 

Clinton made good on that promise though.  That filmmaker is still in jail WITHOUT BOND and hasn’t been heard from or seen by anyone. No media demanding an interview.  No ACLU filing suit.  No Hollywood First Amendment Firsters withholding their million dollar contributions to Herr-sein Obama’s brownshirts.  In fact, the latest articles in a Google News search show no updates since September 28th.

The message to our nation’s enemies can’t be clearer.  Attack us with impunity and we will not protect our own.  The message to our warriors is unmistakeable.  Your President hates you as much as what you stand for and will leave you to die while on the mission he assigned you.  And the press will not even try to get to the bottom of it.

Let’s talk about poll numbers.  Or Big Bird or Binders or Bullshit.

Or you can add Insult Ignominy to Injury:

“Did your son always have balls the size of cue balls?” — Vice President Joe Biden to Charles Woods, grieving father of slain Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods, during a memorial service at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland.

I believe the saying is that you have balls the size of church bells.  And they make a clangedy-clang sound when I walk down the street. \

Either way, inappropriate for a goddamned Memorial Service, Plugs.  It’s bad enough you killed his son, do you have to let everyone know that you’ve got his balls on your mind at the funeral?  Save that for the bathhouse with Barry.  Impeachable offense IMO.

 

Very Lout and Very Clear

A few thoughts on the VP debate.

I thought Martha Raddatz did about as well as I could expect though she seemed to keep her more pointed badgering for Ryan.  Having said that, Drunckle Joe’s table pounding, beady-eyed stares to Martha was a bit off putting to me.  That’s probably just because I’m from the South.

Acknowledging a few of Ryan’s rhetorical failings (i.e., saying “Look” as he would reset his arguments several times), he displayed a temperament painfully absent in the current Vice President.  His command of the facts and the numbers is likely the most professional I’ve seen in a VP debate.  Comfortable with himself.  Comfortable with his positions.  Confident that he has good intentions.

Plugs McCappyteeth though.  Geez.  I knew the MSNBC crew would go apeshit over his constant smirking, sneering / feces flinging but to my group of interested amateurs his demeanor was disgusting.  Reprehensible even.  If you read the transcript he may seem calm and measured.  If you watch the tape, you’d be hard pressed to understand how Ryan was able to subdue his P90X rage from choking that wrinkled old fuck until piss ran down both his legs.

I realize Smarmy Fuckface is what gets Democratic panties moist but the faces, the smirks, the “my friends”, the whole package was really worse than Al Gore’s presidential debate performance.  Distractingly so.  Complete with braying jackass sound effects at some points.

Regardless, he said 47% so woo-fucking-hoo.  That’s all Ray Maddow wants to hear before she artificially inseminates herself with his asshole baby.  Likewise for the rest of the Leftwing Media who set Biden’s debate bar so low that all he had to do was not fall flat on his face drunk for them to declare victory.

For anyone who ever says that “They’re both alike” and “it doesn’t matter who I vote for because they’re both the same”, the choices couldn’t be clearer.

The young man was the adult.  The old man was banging his high chair and shitting his pants in front of the world.  Recognize, fools.

EXIT QUESTION:  It’s an hour after the debate and there are practically no posts about the debate up on Memeorandum anywhere.  What, is Journ-O-List 2.0 still confabbing as to what the united front should be regarding Joe Biden’s obvious triumph over reality?

Foolish, Offensive and Sometimes Unintelligible

Who needs to go to the movies when you can watch Jay Carney’s projection on the big screen?  The above was the White House Squealer’s characterization of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s jeremiad to the United Nations in which he denied the Holocaust, called for the elimination of Israel, made a death threat against Salman Rushdie and the director of the anti-Islamic film that Hillary Clinton’s State Department blames for her negligence that resulted in the murder and rape of her Libyan ambassador.

He’s calling for genocide and state sponsored terrorism not chewing with his mouth open or putting his elbows on the table during dinner.  al-Reuters calls it “defiant”.  NBC characterizes him as  “pugnacious”.  I guess plucky, scrappy and irascible were unavailable.

“Foolish, offensive and sometimes unintelligible.”  Now, remind me again who said that they would meet with him with no pre-conditions.  Who is “foolish” in that scenario?

As far as “offensive” goes, I take it no one saw Hillary Clinton giving a speech at her appropriately acronymed “CGI” Clinton Global Initiative soiree this morning.  No one saw the prolonged standing ovation given to Clinton due in no small part to what they perceive to be The Great Success that she has achieved as the Ozymandias of the State Department.  Look on her works, ye mighty cankles and despair.

CGI Event:  Libyan Ambassador Craig Stevens was digitally removed from Hillary Clinton’s conscience

Clinton delivered, in her trademark monotone, the type of soaring rhetoric we have come to expect from such an accomplished and world-renowned diplomat.  Soaring to levels usually reserved for warnings to truck drivers about low interstate overpasses ahead.

WARNING:  Hillary Clinton speech ahead.  Please tune to AM 630 for details.

Void from any of their faces, even the slights signs of distress or concern about the events of the last few days or the bloody riots that threaten our interests abroad even to this day while trolling for donations.  Surely there is something more important to do today while 120 world leaders are in town than to fundraise for your personal foundation.  You would be wrong though.  Because they don’t know the meaning of the word “offensive”.

As far as unintelligible goes, look no further than Susan Rice’s disastrous, five front offensive against the truth in the White House and State Department’s characterization of the Benghazi attack that killed four Americans a week ago.  Despite a few Bumps In The Road ™, Rice was able to point out an area where Hillary Clinton has succeeded:

The U.S. ambassador to the United Nations is really “into Twitter,” she said over the weekend, but she used to be a social media “skeptic.”

 “I’ve got to admit, in all honest, when this started a couple of years ago, I was a skeptic. I thought, how can I responsibly speak about or conduct foreign policy in what seemed to me haiku?” Susan Rice told Mashable CEO Pete Cashmore over the weekend.

“I thought it sort of might cheapen the coin,” she said. “But I was so wrong. I have gotten really into it because I realize it’s a whole different way of connecting with a whole different set of voices around the world.”

She added that it has helped her and colleagues “distill messages to their very essence.”

She also had high praise for other forms of social media, including Facebook and YouTube.

“When it comes to foreign policy, this is not the most necessarily modern and agile aspect, traditionally, of American government. But under President Obama’s leadership and Secretary [of State Hillary] Clinton’s, the State Department has harnessed social media to be a much more effective tool of our outreach,” Rice said.

Well, it’s a start.  She can admit she was so very wrong about Twitter but can’t admit she was wrong about everything she staked her personal and professional credibility on to five Sunday morning talk shows last week.

Standing with our allies, standing against our enemies – we’ve never been clearer!  Every other day the White House spokestool has to assert that we’ve never been closer to Israel than you would believe were you foolish enough to trust your lying eyes.  Every other week, we’re convinced that murderous dictators who threaten the lives of us and our allies are just friends we haven’t made yet.  It’s as clear as mud.

Obama’s and Clinton’s “leadership” in the field of Twitter has undoubtedly been the greatest foreign policy success since the last one.  Whatever it was.  After all, you don’t even need 140 characters to say “We’re sorry” and “I surrender”.

The AARP Is Just Media Matters With A Colostomy Bag

Forward Comrades!

But don’t let the bag fool you.  They’re still full of shit:

The 71 pages of emails show an AARP management taking orders from the White House, scripting the president’s talking points, working to keep its board “in line,” and pledging fealty to “the cause.” Seniors deserve to know all this, as AARP seeks to present itself as neutral in this presidential election.

The emails overall show an AARP leadership—Policy Chief John Rother, Health Policy Director Nora Super, Executive Vice President Nancy LeaMond, Senior Vice President David Sloane—that from the start worked to pass ObamaCare, before crucial details pertaining to seniors had been addressed. This crew was in constant contact with Mr. Obama’s top aides, in particular Nancy-Ann DeParle and Jim Messina.

As early as July 2009, Mr. Sloane was sending the administration—”as promised”—his “message points” on Medicare. Ms. DeParle assured him “I think you will hear some of your lines tomorrow” in President Obama’s speech—which he did. Mr. Rother advised the White House on its outreach, discouraging Mr. Obama from addressing seniors since “he may not be the most effective messinger [sic] . . . at least to the McCain constituency.” Better to manage these folks, he counsels, through the “authoritative voices of doctors and nurses.”

Knowing this, why did Paul Ryan mistakenly pitch his plan to repeal Obamacare to this cadre of soon-to-be crypt bound commies?  And why again is the AARP tax exempt?

They are the wrinkledy, old strongarm of the Democrat machine that threatens wheelchair bound blue hairs that their strategic reserve of tapioca pudding will be cut off if their candidate doesn’t get elected.  That’s a nice Jazzy you’ve got there.  It’d be a shame of something happened to it.

The AARP is a bedsore on the ass of our comatose economy.

They need to be lectured not sought after.  Once the coordinated boos start, its time to drop the facade of the “I have a realistic chance to court your vote” and swiftly transition to a “it’s about time you turned up your hearing aids and started listen to some hard truth you selfish, old bastards”.   The American Association of Retired Persons has seen to it that no other generation will ever be able to afford to retire.

If Romney wins, I’d like to nominate myself to be Chairman of the death panel.   Like Obama said, forget that pacemaker.  I’ve got a budget saving pain pill with your name on it and an AARP junkmailing list that should keep the lines at Hell’s gates about as long as the lines of traffic behind your Buicks.
