Cold Fury

Harshing your mellow since 9/01

Lock. Her. UP

No, not Hillary!™ this time. Well, okay, her too.

A student at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill was arrested for larceny last month after she was caught on video taking a sign belonging to pro-life activists. The arrest arrives just days after the arrest of a UNC-Chapel Hill student accused of physically assaulted a pro-life activist after allegedly getting angry over his sign.

After which, hilarity ensues.

“Look, sir, I’m not trying to get arrested,” said the student to the officer, after he had informed her that she was being detained for larceny.

“I cannot believe these are the people who you protect,” continued the student, referring to the pro-life activists.

“I’m not trying to protect anyone, but I do have to enforce the law,” responded the officer, “That’s just how it is.”

“Do you see us being subjected to this shit?” said the student, gesturing toward the pro-life signage.

What I see is a sniveling, overprivileged dumbass OUTRAGED!™ at being “subjected” to any opinion that differs from her own.

“They have a right to be here,” said the officer, “If you don’t like their views, you can go away, you don’t have to watch it.”

“It doesn’t matter how much you ignore them, they’re gonna come back, and they’re gonna come back again, and this is why women have such a problem getting abortions in North Carolina, and y’all just let them get away with this shit,” said the student, “I cannot believe y’all let this happen.”

Since when have women had any problem at all getting as many abortions as they want, as often as they want, in North Carolina or anyplace else, you baby-murdering bitch?

“Take your backpack off, turn around, and put your hands behind your back, you’re under arrest for larceny,” said the officer.

“I cannot believe this is happening,” said the student upon realizing that she was under arrest, “is there something else that I can do?”

“No, I just told you you’re under arrest,” replied the officer, “I cannot un-arrest you.”

And then the piteous weeping starts, which is a pure delight to watch. If you can’t do the time, don’t do the crime. As Ace likes to say: LOL get fucked. More:

The student grabbed the sign from Austin Beigel, a peaceful protester, and walked off with it – not realizing that an officer would meet her at the end of her path.

“Did you steal their sign?” the officer asked the feminist.

“I just moved it,” she responded.

“Well you took it,” the officer confirmed.

The young feminist then had the nerve to ask the officer why she was being detained. With a look of disbelief on his face, the officer responded, “Uhh…larceny. You stole his sign.”

I’m sure you can guess what happened at this point: the student pulled out her cherished “victim card.”

“I moved it 50 yards,” she said as she tried to weasel out of the situation.

“I don’t care if you moved it one foot,” the officer responded before he gave a needed lesson in ethics. “You don’t have the right to take someone’s property. Period. I don’t care what the circumstance is.”

“I know you may not agree with what’s being said,” he continued. “But you don’t have the right to take someone’s property. Okay?”

One would hope that Little Einstein would be capable of learning this vitally important lesson. Unfortunately, one’s hope would be in vain; the fascist cunt will doubtless be carefully nursing a grudge over how horribly she was “victimized” for the rest of her days, self-righteously blibbering on to anybody willing to listen about her “courageous” and “heroic” days of protest and oppression.

Yeah, tell me again about how we can live peaceably among shitbrains so thoroughly and irredeemably wrong about what free speech, tolerance, and civility are all about, whydon’tcha.

Why is that these leftists think they can commit stupid acts without facing the just consequences of their actions?

Because they’ve been allowed to do exactly that for way too long, that’s why.

“No viable business model can be developed from this”

Just another epic Fail.

Over the last decade, journalists have held up Germany’s renewables energy transition, the Energiewende, as an environmental model for the world.

With Germany as inspiration, the United Nations and World Bank poured billions into renewables like wind, solar, and hydro in developing nations like Kenya.

But then, last year, Germany was forced to acknowledge that it had to delay its phase-out of coal, and would not meet its 2020 greenhouse gas reduction commitments. It announced plans to bulldoze an ancient church and forest in order to get at the coal underneath it.

“The Energiewende — the biggest political project since reunification — threatens to fail,” write Der Spiegel’s Frank Dohmen, Alexander Jung, Stefan Schultz, Gerald Traufetter in their 5,700-word investigative story.

Over the past five years alone, the Energiewende has cost Germany €32 billion ($36 billion) annually, and opposition to renewables is growing in the German countryside.

“The politicians fear citizen resistance” Der Spiegel reports. “There is hardly a wind energy project that is not fought.”

Meanwhile, the 20-year subsidies granted to wind, solar, and biogas since 2000 will start coming to an end next year. “The wind power boom is over,” Der Spiegel concludes.

All of which raises a question: if renewables can’t cheaply power Germany, one of the richest and most technologically advanced countries in the world, how could a developing nation like Kenya ever expect them to allow it to “leapfrog” fossil fuels?

Many Germans will, like Der Spiegel, claim the renewables transition was merely “botched,” but it wasn’t. The transition to renewables was doomed because modern industrial people, no matter how Romantic they are, do not want to return to pre-modern life.

The reason renewables can’t power modern civilization is because they were never meant to. One interesting question is why anybody ever thought they could.  

Oh, I doubt very much that anyone ever thought they could, least of all the most fervent among the “renewables” advocates. We need to look at the equation the other way ’round: they don’t want to power modern civilization. They want to end it—to turn back the clock to a mythical golden age, before industrialization and modernity, when we all lived in total harmony with nature. Y’know, like the Native Americans did. Like so much of what liberals think they know, this, too, just isn’t so.

Contrary to the hype, solar panels and windmills are old technologies—centuries old, in fact. They were abandoned for a reason; quite a few reasons, actually, foremost among ’em that those old technologies don’t work nearly as well as the more evolved and efficient tech that replaced ’em.

Not that any of it matters a whit to the Luddite Left, natch. They view humans not as a natural part of the biosphere but as a blight upon it—and, if they can’t excise us like the deadly alien cancer we supposedly are, will at least do everything they can to return humanity to a state of helpless primitivism: at the paltry mercy of Ma Nature, rather than coping quite nicely with her implacable ruthlessness.

Good on the German peasantry for resisting. “The politicians” damned well OUGHT to “fear citizen resistance” as far as I’m concerned, and on a whole lot more issues than just this one. For a closer, I just gotta rerun this brilliant George Carlin diatribe one mo’ time ag’in.


If you think that last link just above is something of a non-sequitur, you should review the performance it came from and think again. Ahem. Also: Heh.

“We hate America, and want you to elect us to be your rulers so we can set you contemptible oafs STRAIGHT!”

How dare you question their “patriotism.”

Move your sloppy Commie ass to Iran then, Buttplug. Be sure to take your “husband” along, in the interest of “dialogue” and “understanding.” We’ll see how that works out for ya. Meanwhile, from deep in a comforting gin-soaked fever dream:

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said at a Los Angeles event Saturday that the 2016 election was stolen from her.

The 2016 Democratic presidential nominee spoke with her husband at “An Evening With The Clintons” event.

“You can run the best campaign, you can even become the nominee, and you can have the election stolen from you,” she said, according to CNN.

Yeah, piss off, you crapulous old soak; dry up, blow away, eat some paste, drop dead. I’m one hundred percent with Ace on this:

This is dangerous talk for America, and I don’t even care any longer that it’s dangerous.

Court the danger, Hillary. Secede into your own country where you can win the presidency.

I want done with these people.

Me too, times a million kajillion. I’m reaching the point where I’m willing to countenance any extreme measure at all to rid ourselves of these tiresome screechmonkeys at last. Whatever that takes, and I DO mean whatever, will be fine with me. No, mustard gas, tactical nukes, and mass up-to-the-neck live burials in a giant fire-ant mound are NOT off the table as far as I’m concerned.

As for the Democrat-Socialist supergenii, they should definitely keep on fucking that chicken. After all, everybody knows the one surefire way to win elections is to gratuitously insult more than half the electorate, making no attempt whatsoever to conceal just how fanatically you loathe and despise them.

vote_Democrat_2020.jpg

Update! Just in case anyone was wondering about the things Democrat-Socialists oppose:

Consider the latest unemployment data released Friday. Alongside an increase in productivity of 3.6%, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported Friday that the unemployment rate fell to 3.6% over the first quarter 2019. That’s the lowest rate since we first landed on the moon. And that 3.6% matching speaks to an economy that is growing, dynamic, and moral. Consider that the data also shows Hispanic unemployment is now at just 4.2%. Aside from static year-on-year changes in (still very low) unemployment for blacks, and a 0.2% year-on-year increase in unemployment for teenagers, the economy is boosting employment for every listed demographic subset.

Yet Democrats say that Trump’s economy is somehow immoral. When they aren’t trying to assign credit for it to Obama, they claim that it punishes the middle class and the poor. And so, rather than doubling down on the economic fortune we now find, Democrats are pledging to shred Trump’s corporate tax reforms, escalate regulation, and increase state control in the economy.

So what, you ask, are they FOR instead? Easy-peasy.


Shitholehat.jpg

So this really is where we’re at now, folks. And to think, after they get Trumpified again in 2020, they’re all going to resume screaming bloody murder about the “stolen,” “fraudulent” election and blaming any and everybody else for their defeat—when all anyone really has to do is just sit back, relax, and let the stupid fucks defeat themselves.

Enemies of the people update! Yeah, throw these shitpuppies into the blender too.

Dunking on the mainstream media is as easy as tripping a fat kid in a cast, except we would probably feel sorry for a fat kid in a cast who we tripped and sent slamming into the pavement piehole first. Unless the fat kid in a cast was a mainstream media journalist, in which case it would be totally hilarious.

They hate you, so feel free to hate them back. The MSM was not infuriated with Donald Trump when he called these hack transcriptionists for the liberal elite “the enemy of the people” because he was lying. The MSM was not infuriated with Donald Trump because he was telling the truth.

The mainstream media is our enemy. That’s undeniable; to deny it is to deny what we see and hear with our own eyes and ears every day. Don’t be a “the media is garbage” denier. It would be like denying climate change if climate change was a real thing instead of a media-driven scam designed to take your money and freedom.

Worse, the mainstream media is an enemy that considers you unworthy of the courtesy of not lying to your face about obvious things. Liberal journalists have such contempt for us that they won’t even make the effort to gaslight us properly any more. Maybe it’s because liberal journalists think you are dumb. Maybe liberal journalists are themselves dumb. Or maybe – probably – it’s some combination of the two. But they are no longer even showing you the respect of trying to pretend that they are not lying to you.

WE HATE YOU, YOU BASTARDS SUCK, SHUT UP AND DIE! OH HEY, WHY AREN’T YOU BUYING OUR DYING NEWSPAPERS OR WATCHING OUR FAILING NEWS NETWORKS? NO FAAAIIIIRRRR!!!!

I’ll say it before, I’ll say it again: somebody just let me know when it’s open season, no bag limit on the whole mangey menagerie of shitlib twatwaffles. You just gotta love Schlichter’s suggested correction, too: “If we had a real media, the story would have been ‘Bitter Liberal Hillary Donors On Witchfinder General’s Team Make Pathetic Play To Try To Cause Further Political Damage To Guy Who Was Too Clean For Them To Frame.’” But Kurt, how could they have milked two years of phony anti-Trump reportage out of that, man?

Stick to your guns, Mr President

Hands off Venezuela. Or boots-on-the-ground off, rather.

This is by far the closest to an actual foreign policy crisis that Trump administration has faced yet. It is also the one for which a single misstep could cause total chaos. Naturally, there were prominent (and predictable) voices calling for an intervention. While Maduro is indeed a despotic ruler, we need to think hard before suggesting any further misadventure. Consider the questions one needs to ask before another military intervention, which will inevitably result in a regime change and a civil war.

First, what strategic interests are there for the United States in Venezuela? Venezuela is an oil-rich country, but it is also an economic basket case. There’s no unity in the political class, the military is pretty solidly behind Maduro, and no large-scale defections or popular uprisings are spontaneously happening that look likely to topple Maduro anytime soon. In fact, the regime is propped up by Cuban forces.

Consider the similarity to Iraq immediately post-intervention, and the entire Baathist military and bureaucracy disbanded and pushed underground, fueling insurgency with the support of Iran. In other words, a regime change is a recipe for insurgency and civil war.

Second, what are the intervention plans, and what about mission creep? Would we have an exit strategy and timeframe? There is, so far, no clear coherent plan adopted by the administration, nor is it even possible, because of the reasons mentioned above. Dictators often leave the country and retire with their millions, but that is when they see the situation is hopeless. In this case, the situation isn’t.

The Monroe Doctrine is still active, and America is well within her rights to intervene if any other great power approaches and forms a base that can change the balance of power of the region. But 100 Russian military advisors don’t change the balance of power. It is not the Cuban missile crisis redux, and neither Russia nor China currently has any cross-continental power projection will or capability.

Venezuela is a humanitarian concern, not a strategic concern, a key difference that needs to be considered. It’s easy to sympathize and offer diplomatic support, aid, food, and even weapons. It’s entirely another thing to intervene militarily, and force regime change.

He stands within the cusp of history, of being the first American president in more than a quarter-century to not have started an open-ended and costly so-called humanitarian intervention. He should trust his original electoral instincts and aspire to make that his legacy.

Amen to all that. Let the invade-the-world-invite-the-world types, both civilian and military, gnash their teeth down to nubs over the “missed opportunity” to set up another quicksand-box in their already-oversized playground. Stepping in with anything more than an offer of bargain prices on bulk M4 purchases would be a serious mistake for Trump—and for America. The Venezuelan people foolishly voted themselves into socialism; let them learn on their own that they must shoot their way out of it.

Truth, out

I dunno, would I be taking things a little too far by calling this unlooked-for first step towards honesty for Democrat-Socialists a “baby step”?

U.S.—After Alabama state representative John Rogers made horrific comments on abortion, the nation admitted it was actually sort of proud of Democrats for finally being honest about their position on abortion.

“You kill them now or you kill them later. You bring them in the world unwanted, unloved, you send them to the electric chair. So, you kill them now or you kill them later,” he had said, sparking outrage among those with consciences.

However, in the midst of the outrage, the nation took solace in the fact that at least liberals are being honest now.

“It’s actually kind of refreshing to hear this kind of honesty,” one man in Texas said as he watched the revolting video of Rogers’ comments. “At least they’re being upfront about how abortion is murder now. It’s a step in the right direction. Before, they’d pretend it was healthcare or women’s rights or something. It’s good to hear some truth from the left for once.”

Yep. Unexpected, too.

Rejection rationale

Looks like HILLARY!™ ain’t the only one floating down De Nile.

Former President Barack Obama was unhappy with Hillary Clinton and her failed “soulless campaign” in 2016, saying he saw her loss as a “personal insult.”

The new details come from a recently released update to New York Times Chief White House Correspondent Peter Baker’s book Obama: The Call of History.

The new edition, which includes Obama’s reaction to the 2016 election, said Obama compared himself to Michael Corleone, the titular character of “The Godfather.” Obama thought he “almost got out” of office untouched, like a mob boss avoiding a hit job.

Obama found himself shocked by the election results, thinking before Nov. 8 there was “no way Americans would turn on him” and “[h]is legacy, he felt, was in safe hands.”

Your disastrous legacy is what it is, Jugears. You should worry more about NOT being forgotten, seems to me. Hopefully, your “legacy” will soon be getting way closer attention than you’ll wish, and fading quietly away into unheralded obscurity might come to look like a sweet, unreachable dream.

Update! Is De Nile actually a river of cheap gin?

Hillary Clinton’s defenders will never stop making excuses for why she lost in 2016: It was Matt Lauer! It was James Comey! It was men being sexist! It was women being sexist! It was voter suppression! It was Citizens United! It was fake news! It was WikiLeaks! It was Facebook! It was the Russians!

Today, a new excuse: It was Jon Stewart!

In the middle of last week, Huma Abedin must have bustled over to Hillary’s place with a lovingly bound copy of the latest in cutting-edge academic research, a report that says Jon Stewart’s retirement is ACKSHULLY the reason Donald Trump won. We’ll all be able to hear more about this in Frau Pantsuit’s next memoir, “7,573 Other Reasons I Lost That Totally Were Not My Fault, You Ungrateful Pissants.”

How long will it take academia and the pundit class to learn that dropped objects fall to earth, water is wet and Hillary Clinton’s biggest problem was Hillary Clinton? She’s a horrible politician, as corrupt as a medieval warlord and as cuddly as a leprotic armadillo.

As Dennis Miller puts it in his special “Fake News, Real Jokes,” “They could have passed out a big sheet of paper that had two boxes on it, one that said ‘Hillary’ and one that said ‘not Hillary,’ and I was gonna put my X in the ‘not-Hillary’ box, OK?”

She’s not just a horrible politician, she’s a horrible, vile person—a “nasty, nasty woman,” as Trump so handily put it. Via Surber, who quips: “…as if being too drunk to stand on 9/11 did not have anything to do with her 30-state stomping.” Not to mention all those other times she was caught on camera suffering from the blind staggers, too, and couldn’t stumble into the Drunkmobile without assistance from five burly security guards.

The bane of liberalism

Unintended consequences, always catching the self-proclaimed Smartest People On Earth by surprise.

Tenants are fleeing a D.C. high rise as the city’s progressive housing policy has led to panhandling, marijuana smoking, and at least one overdose death in the past year.

Sedgewick Gardens is an historic landmark in a high-priced neighborhood in northwest Washington, D.C., the Washington Post reported. But in the past two years, it has also come to play home to a number of formerly homeless people, many of whom may not have been pushed into housing before exposure to treatment as part of the District’s “housing first” approach to policy.

The pushing of formerly homeless people into housing prior to access to drug treatment or psychological care is part of the “housing first” approach to homelessness assistance, which argues that housing is itself a kind of care, and so people should always be provided with housing as soon as possible.

The neighborhood itself is quite liberal—the Post notes that 95 percent of voters there opposed President Donald Trump in 2016—but the results of the move-in were what the Post describes as “a high-stakes social experiment that so far has left few of its subjects happy.”

That experiment has led to a tripling of police calls to the complex, rising to 121 in 2018 compared to 34 in 2016. Only five of the 2018 calls actually were eventually linked to a crime. But they also were prompted by other harrowing situations, including a man barricading himself in his apartment and threatening to shoot police with a shotgun if they intruded; and another man found to have died from using drugs laced with the deadly synthetic opioid fentanyl.

These two events are the most extreme examples of a general coarsening of the environment. Tenants have complained of panhandling in the halls, the smell of marijuana in the hallways, and feces on the landing of the stairwells.

It’s an all-too-familiar situation for me personally. When I lived in Atlanta, I was in a quite nice complex of historic industrial buildings newly renovated into apartments, the Fulton Cotton Mill Lofts—new enough that only my own building was finished, the other three were still under construction.

Alas, there was a catch: having been built in part with government money, it was required that half the aparments be set aside for Section 8 benefit recipients. In a nutshell, this meant that people shelling out a thousand bucks a month or more were forced to endure certain “amenities” such as garbage-strewn lobbies and parking lots; late-night confrontations with scary-looking thugs roaming the premises; loud, shrieking domestic disputes; aggressive panhandlers, and other examples of Diversity’s dubious benefits.

The only thing missing from all this was the feces. And who knows, they probably turned up too eventually, I was only there for two years.

Our lobby had a mailbox center in the middle of it, for which the management was gracious enough to provide convenient recycling tubs to toss the day’s pile of junk mail into. They posted up a flier above them requesting that residents NOT use the junk-mail bins to toss household and kitchen garbage bags into, with a reminder of the dumpsters located nearby. They even put a map on the fliers, if I remember right.

I’m sure you know how well THAT worked out. Immediately on entering the front door you were confronted with the eye-watering stench of rotting food, curdled milk, soiled diapers, half-full 40’s of Old English, cigarette butts, cat litter, and whatever other nastiness the Section 8 animals were disposing of that day. The junk-mail bins quicky filled, whereupon Section 8’ers would just toss their overflowing, nasty bags right onto the floor.

It wasn’t just inside the building, either. I was out on the parking lot one stifling summer afternoon to work on my girlfriend’s car—they don’t call it Hotlanta for nothing, folks. I crawled up under the car, dragging my tools along with me, and sort of inch-wormed my way to where I need to be. After a few minutes I noticed two things: an unknown object or objects jabbing painfully into my back, and a truly nauseating stench. I wriggled back out and took the look underneath that I should have thought of before getting under there, to find that I had been lying on a big pile of maggot-ridden, half-eaten fried chicken bones left to fester in the sun for who even knows how long.

It was a great big old pile of DISGUSTING, that’s what. Coincidentally, or probably not, a year or two I had an Uber rider leave a gift of rib bones in my back seat, wrapped in a greasy, BBQ sauce-smeared wad of paper napkins. The magnanimous gesture on the part of my middle-aged black female fare was left unbeknownst to me, until the end of the day when I went to clear any such debris out of the back seat. And I had had several subsequent passengers after her, too. God only knows what they might have thought about all that.

Pleaase note that I am NOT presenting those last two stories as some kind of “ohh, them niggers and their chicken and ribs and watermelons!” thing. Just noting that a mighty casual attitude on the part of so many of your standard lower-class Dindus towards not trashing his or her immediate surroundings may possibly not be entirely coincidental, that’s all. Could be—COULD be—there’s something bigger at work here.

Anyways, back to the Lofts. You always knew which apartment housed a Section 8’er or three (or thirty). You couldn’t miss ’em. They were the apartments with the unpleasant smell wafting through the short corridor outside the door; the rap “music” blasting out at ear-rupturing volume any and all hours of the day or night; the malt liquor bottles and gooey pizza boxes piled in ziggurats adjacent to the door; the sounds of violent altercations, furniture being rougly shoved around, or shattering glass. Now and then a resident passed out on the floor by the door, maybe, which door might or might not be left standing partially or fully open.

In sum, I have NO intention of ever subjecting myself to dwelling in any complex that also hosts Section 8 recipients if I can help it. Likewise, I am NOT in the least surprised to read about the sad denouement of inflicting such thoughtless slobs on a once-grand old property like the Sedgewick Gardens. The Libs In Charge of this ill-considered farce coulda asked me, I woulda been glad to tell ’em how things were gonna work out for’em in the end. Not that they would want to hear it, or profit from the knowledge they gained.

Bunkered up

Ever wonder why that Hitler rant after the Mueller report dropped was so damned funny? Mostly because it cut so close to the bone.

Historians tell us that in the final days of the Third Reich, as the Red Army surrounded the Berlin Führerbunker, a crazed Adolf Hitler ranted, raved, and issued increasingly irrational orders for non-existent Wehrmacht divisions to counterattack and repel the invaders. Even as Germany was being laid waste by the British and American armies advancing from the west and the Russians from the east, Hitler still appeared to believe that victory was within reach. After all, when he had started World War II, world domination by the Nazis had been all but certain. It had to have been inconceivable to him that he had been so wrong from the beginning, and now he would have to face the consequences.

Equally deluded and disbelieving was Josef Goebbels, the Reich’s propaganda minister. According to historical reports, even at that late date and in those dire circumstances, Goebbels’ deluded denial of the advancing peril equaled that of his Führer.

I couldn’t help but think back to crazy Adolf as I watched the utterly bizarre performance by the unhinged Democrat senators who hurled meaningless, semi-hysterical invective at Attorney General William Barr as he testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Similarly, the mainstream media’s equally outlandish portrayals of Barr’s steady, thoughtful, and intelligent testimony reminded me of the credulous and loyal Goebbels. Just as Adolf and Josef couldn’t accept the reality that they had lost the war, Senators Richard Blumenthal (D., Conn.), Mazie Hirono (D., Hawaii), Kamala Harris (D., Calif.), and their media enablers seem to be incapable of accepting the results of the Mueller investigation.

Although the Attorney General carefully avoided saying that he had reached any conclusions about “overreach” by top government officials, the mere fact that he raised that possible investigative subject should induce night sweats and fitful insomnia throughout the bedrooms of the Seat of Government.

Who knows? Just like the popularity of backyard bomb shelters during the height of the Cold War, underground Führer-style bunkers may become the hot new trend among deep state leaders looking to make a desperate, crazed last stand against the approaching forces of justice.

We should make sure those bunkers are well-stocked with sidearms and plenty of ammo, to ensure strict fidelity to historical precedent and thereby achieve the desired result. As I said a little while ago, the Democrat-Socialist bedlamites have dug themselves into a very deep hole, especially considering this:

More than two-thirds of Americans want an investigation into the Justice Department’s handling of the Russia Collusion Hoax.

This is very bad news for Barack Obama, the corrupt Deep State, their minions in the establishment media, and Democrats.

According to a April 25-28 poll of 1,007 random adults taken for CNN (a far-left fake news outlet), a full 69 percent “think Congress ought to investigate the origins of the Justice Department’s inquiry into Russian interference in the 2016 election, including 76% of Democrats, 69% of independents and 62% of Republicans.”

And the “origins” of that inquiry means the Obama Justice Department.

The poll also shows that a mere 37 percent want to see Trump impeached while a clear majority, 59 percent, do not. Last September, that number was nearly tied with 47 percent wanting Trump removed from office while 48 percent did not.

So: bad news for libtards all around, then. Looks like it’s either bunker up or lawyer up for you Corruptocrats. Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of assholes.

Fords and Chevvies and fuckups, oh my!

Remember the other night when I waxed nostalgic about the nearly-forgotten Ford/Chevy rivalry? Of course, that’s not to say that there aren’t still a few of us geezer types determined to keep those flames ablaze. There’s a largish number of street rod/rat rod/classic car whippersnappers out there who feel likewise, as well.

And then we have those benighted fools who take the matter WAY too seriously.

BEDFORD CO., VA — An argument over which truck is better, Ford or Chevy, escalated and ended with gunshots in a Virginia home on Easter. 

According to WSET, prosecutors said it happened during dinner involving Mark Turner, his girlfriend, her son and the son’s girlfriend. 

Turner and his girlfriend’s son got into an argument about trucks. 

“The allegation is that there was alcohol involved

Oh, go on. You can’t POSSIBLY mean that.

and a dispute began against Logan Bailey, the son of the girlfriend, and Mr. Turner about what type of vehicle is best, Chevy versus Ford,” attorney Wes Nance said. 

Investigators said Turner pulled out a knife and threatened Bailey. Turner’s girlfriend stepped between her boyfriend and her son. 

Turner stabbed his girlfriend in the lowerback, leaving a six-inch wound, according to Nance. 

Then, things got even worse.

And believe it or not, they did. They really, really did. Body count as of this writing, near as I can make out: eight gunshot wounds; at least one stab wound; and one (1) skull cracked.

I was originally hipped to this whole embarrassment via MisHum’s ONT link to a different report, over which version I am going to be forced to do a little annoyed harrumphing here.

Since the dawn of time, the battle between Chevrolet and Ford has burned brightly. Legend has the age-old, mullet-inspired argument has produced absolutely no winners. But a plethora of losers. Now, yet another battle has been fought, this time at the hands of a Virginia man with a knife and a gun.

Bold mine, because…uhhh, dude, what the fuck? That HAD to be written by some kid trying to be funny, blissfully unaware that when this rivalry started the menfolk were wearing the back and sides high and tight, and no gentleman would dream of venturing out of the house without a hat anyway. Mullets didn’t even exist back then, for crying out loud. The kind of long, flowing locks the mullet ‘do requires were for women only in those days; any adult male who tried to cross that particular line would have found himself with way more trouble on his hands to worry about than Fords and Chevys, with a quickness.

On the bright side, however, the Drive youngster’s version of events does include a most amusing mugshot of the ignernt knucklehead in less than showroom condition after having his empty head clouted by the po-po, so there’s that. The cub reporter mentions Turner being “struck” by something yclept “a flexible baton round”; since I have not the slightest idee what the devil that might even be, I’m just gonna assume he got his bell rung by an Asp baton, which pretty much all cops everywhere carry.

All in all, I’m harboring the suspicion that this sad-sack Turner was just looking for a reason to get busy shooting and cutting those other folks to begin with, and likely had been working himself up to it for a good long while. He was probably just waiting for the night he got hisself likkered and doped up enough to go ahead and get the party started, I’m guessing.

It all got me to thinking that I need to establish a brand-new category here for this sort of thing—by which I mean Ford-specific items, not slope-browed ridgerunners venting the ol’ spleen on their kinfolk over little to nothing at all. So I did: Fords forever, baby!

Oh, and: Skeptic, I’ll getcha for that one someday, buddy. Heh. Honestly, all kidding around aside, I’d never heard that zinger before.

A matriarchy, if you can keep it

The hand that rocks the cradle rules the world.

In contemporary America, women and men still act out ancient roles. From the point of view of the men, the society is a matriarchy: Women have physically less demanding jobs — with the sole exception of childbirth, by now a rare event in the average woman’s life. Women sustain far fewer injuries on the job, are not required to go to war, take better care of their health, and for these reasons and many others enjoy a lifespan significantly longer than that of men.

In this society, men use their physical strength, when necessary, on women’s behalf. Women claim to be equal partners when that suits them and claim to be entitled to special consideration when that suits them. They insist on autonomy in maintaining or aborting pregnancies, but at the same time, they determine the fathers’ duties-and rights, if any. Women claim child support. They can either demand or impede fathers’ continuing involvement with their offspring, as the women see fit. The result is that women have advantages over men in child custody suits, just as they have learned to use charges of child sexual abuse and domestic violence.

Though dozens of studies show that women, by their own account, initiate violence against their domestic partners as often as (if not more often than) men, and cause as much injury when weapons are involved, somehow the social mythologies of this country keep that fact from gaining broad public attention, let alone credence.

But worst of all, in terms of the interactions of daily life, are women’s emotional demands on men. At home, men routinely sit through harangues that demonstrate women’s greater verbal skills and emotional agility. Men, inarticulate, try to figure out what is required of them in a given situation. Not by accident, verbal therapies in this society archetypically began with men listening and women speaking. Even as little boys, males learn to be in awe of girls’ verbal fluency. The feeling of ineptness, of being no match for females at the verbal and emotional level, is the common inheritance of all but a few exceptional males.

At home and on the job, men are reminded of their emotional inferiority and verbal inadequacy. Nowhere are they as quick as women in their emotional responses, their verbalization of those responses, or their acuity in gauging the dynamics of interaction or situation. And constantly they are reminded of this disadvantage. Women berate them, browbeat them, even physically attack them out of frustration at these characteristics.

Somehow it is always men who are to blame. Even in the schoolyard, little boys suffer from puzzlement, pain, and ostracism as little girls make comments and express expectations boys cannot quite grasp or respond to. Thus, boys are trained into a lifelong awareness of inferiority. At home, mothers demand expression of their sons’ and husbands’ feelings and berate them when they are confused and reticent. At work, women exchange knowing smiles signifying that men ‘Just don’t get it.”

Why, what kind of despicable, sexist, misogynist, knuckledragging PIG of a male could POSSIBLY come up with such outrageous twaddle? It’s extraordinary, even for them.

Ummmmmm…oops.

Dumbass Progtard harpies psychologically castrate our boys; revile them horribly and ceaselessly; shame them for crimes they didn’t commit, and most likely never will; relentlessly drive home their supposed worthlessness and degeneracy; suppress any and all healthy expression of their natural masculinity; encourage them to wear dresses, “explore their feminine side,” and have their dicks chopped off; and just generally make a career out of denouncing, discouraging, and tormenting them at every possible turn. Instead of nurturing them, encouraging them, and appreciating them, they have drawn the boundaries of decent society so as to exclude them.

And then, these boys’ heads all aswirl with confusion, fear, and self-loathing, the harpies turn around and wonder why something like this happens.

Toxic feminism has one hell of a lot to answer for, seems to me.

They will NEVER stop

Hey, remember back when Enemedia’s credibility was forever destroyed by the Mueller Bellyflop, and Democrat-Socialists/shitlibs would be forced to eat a heapin’ helpin’ of humble pie for the two-year rain of bullshit they had pimped?

Nope, me neither.

Bill Maher mocked Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff over his obsession with President Donald Trump and Russia: “But this [Mueller] was our big gun. Now it just looks like you’re stalking him.”

Schiff began by clinging to his false claim that the Mueller report said: “that the Trump campaign welcomed it [the Russian interferece], embraced it, built it into their plan, made full use of it, lied about it, covered it up, and then obstructed the investigation into it; and, if we had any doubt before about this president’s fitness for office, there is no doubt remaining: he is unfit for the presidency.”

Actually what the Mueller report says was there were various attempts by Russian operatives to assist the campaign their origin was unknown, and each attempt was turned down or ignored. But Schiff would never let the truth get in the way of a good lie.

Of course not. That’s because he’s a Lying Left piece of shit—just like Maher, just like all the rest of them.

Update! Apparently, the Obama cabal high crimes haven’t stopped yet.

It has been brought to my attention by a former CIA station chief of some prominence and who has a legendary reputation inside the community of pre-Brennan operators, that Hillary Clinton’s loss did not curtail the worst activities of the outgoing Obama team. In fact, through the use of a walled-off team of contractors working inside the Intelligence Community, and for political realms alone, with no FISA-authorization or other national security justification, the Trump White House was spied upon after the January 20 inauguration. (Those responsible for this on-going crime are known to more than one investigative journalist and I have been told that the first of the new revelations will be published in the coming week).

Simply put: the Obama Administration used the most powerful intelligence capabilities in the world to attempt a penetration and subversion of the presidential campaign of the the opposing party. When that failed, they used a special prosecutor to divert attention away from that activity, log-jam the work of the new president, and clean up the evidence of what had been done to him and his team. And most un-American of all: the former intelligence leadership of the Obama Administration continued to spy illegally on Donald Trump and his closest advisers after they had moved into the White House.

Many take offense at the way President Trump uses language, at his tweets and at what they see as his hyperbole. But this week when he called the operations against him and the will of the people who chose him, a “coup” and an “attempted overthrow” of the government, he was making a simple statement of fact.

The central irony remains: the conniving curs who so piously demanded that Trump guarantee to “accept the results of the election” should he lose are refusing to accept defeat themselves. And I say yet again: they will NEVER stop. They will have to BE stopped, most likely by being stood up against a wall or swung from a gibbet in large groups.

Grotesque

Yes, they really ARE this dumb.

Rabbi Abraham Cooper, associate and director of Global Social Action Agenda at the Simon Wiesenthal Center, called out Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) and The New York Times for promulgating the notion that Jesus was a Palestinian.

Omar re-tweeted an April 20 tweet from Omar Suleiman, an adjunct professor for Islamic Studies at Southern Methodist University, who said a Palestinian relative told him regarding the “Christian right”: “Don’t they know we’re Christian too? Do they even consider us human? Don’t they know Jesus was a Palestinian?”

Similarly, an April 19 New York Times piece focusing on various depictions of Jesus Christ’s skin color stated, “Jesus, born in Bethlehem, was most likely a Palestinian man with dark skin.”

Cooper told the Journal in a statement via email that it’s a “grotesque insult to Jesus born in the land of Israel and to Christianity” to say that Jesus was a Palestinian.

“Palestine was a name made up by Romans after they crucified thousands, destroyed the Holy Temple in Jerusalem and exiled the People of Israel from their homeland,” Cooper said.

Myself, I’m somewhat puzzled by Suleiman’s “Palestinian relative” misnomering Easter Worshippers with the recently-forbidden term “Christians,” but what the heck. More knowledge for stupid Leftwits:

The name “Palestine” wasn’t even applied to the land of Judea by the Romans until 100 years after Jesus, after the Bar Kokhba revolt in 134 A.D. The Romans plucked this name out of the Bible (it’s a variant of “Philistine”) as the name of the Jews’ ancient enemies, just to taunt the Jews as they barred them from living in the area. And when they did apply this name, it was the name only of a region, never of a people. There were never any “Palestinians” until they were invited by Yasser Arafat and the KGB in the 1960s. And now the entire Western establishment political class and media expects us to kowtow and repeat this lie.

Yep. But that’s just Proggie SOP, see. Truth is to them as garlic is to vampires.

Now do Muslims, whydon’tcha

Right back atcha, Slick.

To celebrate a “Decade of Dialogue” in its annual diversity conference, Harvard University’s Faculty of Arts & Sciences invited a straight white man to give the keynote lecture.

But not just any straight white man.

Tim Wise, an “anti-racism writer, educator and activist,” has denigrated Christians as “Jeezoids” and fascists and called Pope Francis evil. He has tweeted that “people who believe in a God of hell/damnation deserve to be mocked viciously and run out of the public square.”

Those who base their morality on the Hebrew Scriptures “deserve to be locked up,” he said in 2015, claiming to be “sorta kidding but not by much.”

Which is just a coward’s way of trying to slither around the fact that he means every last word of it.

The activist emphasized the importance of identifying institutional barriers to diversity and inclusion.

The irony, it BURNS.

The rest of it is the standard-issue, Mark-1 Mod-0 shitlib flapdoodle—and if you think for one second he and his like wouldn’t march every white, male, Christian Dissident-Rightist straight into a gulag or Zyklon-B shower the moment they glommed enough power to do so, you’re a damned fool.

Anybody out there still thinking we can somehow find a way to live peaceably alongside these inflamed rectal polyps? Or that we should bother trying?

Down the tubes

The SF Shit Map has been updated, and…well, I mean…that is to say…uhhh…

Good Lord.

poop-map.jpg


If you think that’s just something I P-Shopped up myself as a gag, you can go here to verify the stomach-turning truth. Goad digs deeper into this crappy shituation.

But San Francisco is the most expensive major city in the USA, and its residents boast a per-capita income twice the national average. It is also the nation’s most aggressively progressive major city, and its residents should tolerate no such public atrocities under their watch, right?

If you even have to ask such questions, you don’t understand much about wealth inequality. You’d be hard-pressed to find a single major American metro area whose politics aren’t obnoxiously leftist and that also doesn’t feature wealth inequality far beyond anything you find out in the sticks. Maybe these types see wealth inequality everywhere because that’s their natural habitat. Either way, you shouldn’t be surprised to see a Silicon Valley billionaire accidentally stepping in a homeless Vietnam Vet’s dung on the streets of the City by the Bay—it comes with the territory.

San Francisco’s climate—always chilly but never unbearable—is also more of a homeless magnet than frozen wastelands such as Chicago and Boston. The problem—at least when it comes to turds on the street—is that San Francisco suffers a much higher quotient of homeless people who have no permanent shelter than cities where you can die of frostbite during most winter evenings. Unlike LA, San Francisco’s geography doesn’t sprawl on forever, so it’s homeless quadrants tend to be more tightly compacted than those in other cities.

Heh. I see what you did there, Jim. This part is gut-bustingly funny:

Last year, the city formed a “Poop Patrol” to tackle the crisis. Comprised of five workers who each earn $184,000 yearly in salary and benefits, they enjoy the dubious honor of being the city’s first-response squad whenever anyone reports seeing human feces on the streets. A dedicated 311 line reportedly fields 65 calls about sidewalk poop daily.

Developers have also produced a phone app called SnapCrapthat allows users to point, click, and officially report all instances of sidewalk shittery.

The city’s Public Works department also sponsors a campaign called “Doo The Right Thing” that offers free dog poop bags and canisters for containing your pooch’s feces until they can be safely disposed. There are apparently no plans for a human version, no matter how loudly the universe howls for one.

In an unintentionally funny account of the sidewalk-shit crisis, the San Francisco Chronicle follows around Supervisor Matt Haney, who accidentally steps into some feces while guiding around the reporter. Within moments, an unrelated bicyclist named Malcolm Haney also steps in feces—only to do it again within a couple minutes.

Heh. To recycle a Bart Simpson quote I’ve gotten a lot of use out of here over the years: WHOA, that’s good squishy!

Yeah, yeah, I know. Sorry.

It’s turtles corruption all the way down

In Baltimore, and in every city run by Democrat-Socialist grifters.

Federal officials searched Mayor Catherine E. Pugh’s home and City Hall office Thursday in the midst of her children’s book scandal. Reports told us that Maryland health providers paid Pugh hundreds of thousands of dollars for her self-published “Healthy Holly” children’s books. 

Gov. Larry Hogan called for an investigation into the matter and the FBI is now very involved.

Pugh took an indefinite leave of absence last month due to what she claimed were health issues.

Ace explains further:

She made these books available. To, for example, health care providers looking to sign lucrative contracts with the city of Baltimore.

And you won’t believe this –health care providers looking to sign lucrative contracts with the city of Baltimore bought tens of thousands of copies of this self-published book, putting a great deal of money in the mayor’s pockets, to the tune of hundreds of thousands of dollars.

UMMS bought the most — 100,000 copies for a sweet half mil.

Why did the UMMS buy so many of these books?

Well, I don’t want to speculate unduly, but it might have something to do with the fact that the Children’s Author Pugh sat on the UMMS’ board.

The Baltimore Sun discovered that nine of the UMMS’ board members had entered into “business relationships” with the UMMS. I wonder what other tax-payer subsidized graft for politicians we’ll be discovering.

And now, the FBI takes a pause from chasing down the Steele Dossier and covering up Hillary Clinton’s crimes to do actual work, searching Mayor Pugh’s home and city hall office for evidence of crimes.

The FBI, going after a Demonrat? Well, I must say I never saw THAT coming. But now we come to the funniest part.

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Where is Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh? It’s the question buzzing around the city as the FBI and IRS raid Pugh’s home, City Hall and several other locations tied to her Thursday. But, no one has seen the mayor even though she’s supposed to be recovering from pneumonia.

An earlier report said she may have been trying to get out of town, but attorney Steve Silverman spoke to the WJZ outside her home Thursday and said the mayor is physically ill and emotionally saddened.

I’ll bet she is at that.

He said she apologized for letting down the people of Baltimore with any appearance of wrongdoing.

“People of Baltimore, I’m sorry I got caught!”

Pugh is not mentally or physically able to make any decisions Thursday, according to Silverman.

Wait, she was before? Perhaps a nice extended vacation in a country with no extradition treaty with the US would be just what the doctor ordered (ahem) to restore her tragically shattered health. I understand coastal Cuba is lovely this time of year.

Oh, she’s patriotic all right

She’s just in the wrong country, that’s all. Authentic American hero Kyle Lamb is just the guy to set her despicable ass straight.

Earlier this week, a 2017 tweet from Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) surfaced in which she attacked the men who helped defend from starvation and civil war the country she abandoned in the early 1990s. In her tweet, Omar blasted “American forces” for killing “thousands of Somalis” during the Battle of Mogadishu in October 1993. “#NotTodaySatan,” Omar wrote.

I take special exception to Omar’s disgusting comments because I served in the Battle of Mogadishu, which was later portrayed in the movie “Black Hawk Down.” If you aren’t familiar with the real story behind “Black Hawk Down,” let me set the scene for you.

The Habar Gidir clan, one of the more powerful clans around Mogadishu, was led by the notorious warlord Mohammed Farah Aidid, who made the distribution of international aid to those who needed it nearly impossible. Instead of equitably spreading food and medical supplies, Aidid and his henchmen spread terror and death.

Task Force Ranger was the 1993 military effort ordered by President Bill Clinton to capture Aidid and his lieutenants so the U.N. could deliver food and medical aid without fear of being attacked or killed by Aidid’s forces. The American soldiers Omar attacked in her tweet — the men of Task Force Ranger –weren’t sent to Somalia for fame or fortune. They weren’t there because of a deep desire to visit the God-forsaken nation of Somalia. They were deployed to support peacekeepers who were desperate to rescue the country from starvation and the ravages of civil war. To do that, they had to capture the men responsible for it.

By the time Task Force Ranger had been launched, Aidid’s network of drug-addled, Khat-dealing gun runners had taken over Mogadishu and were doing everything they could to oppress any and all rival clans, including that of Omar, the Majeerteen. In other words, we were sent halfway across the world to help protect people just like Omar and her family. Nineteen incredible men gave their lives defending her country while serving ours. They deserve to be lauded for their service, not attacked for it.

I am thankful Omar and her family and countless others were able to escape to neighboring Kenya while we fought to protect those left behind, but I simply cannot comprehend her attitude towards those of us who fought to protect her country and countrymen from warlords who plunged Somalia only further into violence and starvation. I am glad that Omar can now enjoy the very freedoms we fought to protect, like the freedom of speech and the free exercise of religion affirmed in the U.S. Constitution, but I don’t understand why she uses those freedoms to slur the men and women of the U.S. military who made her security and liberty a reality.

I’m neither thankful nor glad for Omar’s deliverance from Somali hell into the welcoming arms of a nation whose assistance and embrace she is unworthy of. She is a disgusting ingrate, not worth one drop of the priceless American blood shed on her and her fellow primordial knuckledraggers’ behalf that awful day. More and possibly worse from the NYPost:

The controversial Minnesota lawmaker claimed that “thousands” died in the Battle of Mogadishu — though most reputable sources put the contested body count much lower, according a report by the Investigative Project on Terrorism.

#NotTodaySatan,” Omar wrote in response to a Twitter user’s lament that 19 US service members were killed and 73 injured in the battle.

Monica Showalter questions her “patriotism”:

Seriously, she called them ‘Satan’? And she said it a lot more recently than she did with her 2012 ‘Israel has hypnotized the world’ tweet. What amazing ingratitude. She called the people who were trying to deliver aid to her starving clan, the Mateerveen of the Somali north, ‘Satan’ and fliply said ‘Not today, Satan’ on the question of whether there should be appreciation for the Americans who died for her own people. Her country was a hellhole and the Marines came in five years after she left it. Her family were among the people who were so badly off as victims of Somalia’s khat-chewing warlords that they had fled the country — for a four-year stint in a Kenyan refugee camp as a better alternative to life in Somalia — until they hit the jackpot as refugees and came to America. That kind of ingratitude is some strange stuff.

It points to a reflexive anti-Americanism that’s visible in pretty much every statement she makes. And her resentment was there from the beginning – she hated America from the moment she landed here, as she told the New York Times, calling it a land of ‘hypocrisy.’ She “concluded that it was not the golden land that she had heard about,” the Times gently intoned. 

Gee, so sorry about all that, dear. No, really. The blood-boiling closer is Lamb’s.

The simple truth is that Omar enjoys the fruits of American combat deaths, yet she can’t even bring herself to acknowledge the ultimate sacrifice that was made on her behalf, either as a Somali or an American. Her clan didn’t stand a chance against Aidid and Habar Gidirs, so I don’t blame her for leaving. But I do blame her for attacking those of us who had zero personal interest or investment in her nation for doing our jobs on behalf of our country. And I blame her for smearing American servicemen because we answered the call of our nation to address the violent barbarism of hers.

Well said, SMaj. Omar is here in the first place because of some at best extremely suspicious—most likely illegal—maneuvering and manipulation. In light of her obvious dissatisfaction, she should be sent straight the fuck back to where she came from without delay, at least until those questionable circumstances are investigated thoroughly. There just is no demand whatsoever here for yet another disgruntled, unassimilable Muslim “refugee” whose loathing and contempt for America slops forth from every pore like sweat in a blazing desert.

The excretion Omar has no right to be here. She isn’t needed here. She doesn’t like it here. She has nothing of value to offer this country; her contemptuous, entitled attitude confirms that even if she did, she’s way more taker than giver. She isn’t a loyal, patriotic American citizen. She never will be. She’s a fucking parasite.

Send. Her. Back.

Shit City

The tide is high, and rising.

People are pooping more than ever on the streets of San Francisco
Between 2011 and 2018, San Francisco experienced a massive increase in reported incidents of human feces found on public streets.

In 2011, just over 5,500 reports were logged by the San Francisco Department of Public Works; in 2018, the number increased to more than 28,000.

The government watchdog Open the Books documented the sharp increase over time in a stunning chart, first spotted by the BuzzFeed editor John Paczkowski.

Notably, this is a chart of only documented reports — the actual amount of feces on San Francisco’s streets is likely even higher than these statistics suggest.

Vox gets to the, uhh, bottom of the problem.

The reasons one should support Christian nationalism and Western civilization aka Christendom is not limited to a personal belief in Jesus Christ as Man’s savior. On the political side, even if you lack religious faith, a mere preference for indoor plumbing will suffice.

This is the dyscivilizational reality of the promised shiny, sexy, science fiction seculartopia that was promised by the progressives. Rivers of blood and public streets lined with shit.

Never forget, folks: what they did for once-thriving urban meccas like Detroit and San Francisco, they can do for YOU!

Edelweiss

It’s one of the loveliest melodies ever written, from a wonderful, uplifting family movie without so much as a “shit,” a “damn,” or a bare tit to be found therein, much less any HEROIC!!! transgender-butt-rape sex scenes. So of course the fuckwit Left has to politicize and then shit all over it.

On Thursday, a New York Post reporter tweeted that President Donald Trump played the song “Edelweiss” at the White House. The New York Times’s White House correspondent, Maggie Haberman, suggested the song was a Nazi anthem, inspiring rightful backlash on Twitter. She seemed to stick with this false view, even after she was called out on it.

As National Review’s Alexandra DeSanctis noted, “Edelweiss” originated in The Sound of Music (1965), an American musical about the ravages of the Nazi rise to power in Austria. The song was a tribute to pre-Nazi Austria and a rebuke to the Nazis.

Don’t even ask: yes, they ARE this stupid. They really, really are.

The moronization of society proceeds apace. As we mentioned on the show, a bigshot New York Times correspondent thinks that playing “Edelweiss” at the White House is some kind of Nazi dog-whistle to Trump supporters. It is tragic and profound the way even small artifacts of our inheritance get trashed in these witless arguments, so, if you want to know the real story of the very last song in the Oscar Hammerstein catalogue, here’s what I had to say a couple of years back:

Not long after Rodgers & Hammerstein wrote the song, Theodore Bikel was leaving the theatre when he found a fan and fellow immigrant waiting at the stage door for his autograph: ‘I love that “Edelweiss”,’ said the theatregoer. ‘Of course, I have known it a long time, but only in German.’

Not for the first time, Hammerstein had done too good a job. Just as his ‘Ol’ Man River’ for Show Boat is assumed by many to be an authentic Negro spiritual, so ‘Edelweiss’ is assumed to be an authentic Austrian folk song. Not so. In both cases, a great craftsman manufactured them to solve a structural problem with the storytelling. But he did it so well that they have become for real what they were only intended to simulate. Some years ago ‘Edelweiss’ was played at the White House, at a state dinner for Austria’s President Kirschschlager, and everyone but the Austrians stood up for the national anthem. Actually, no. The current Austrian anthem is ‘Land der Berge, Land am Strome’, and the only official anthem by Rodgers & Hammerstein is their title number for their very first show, which serves as the state song of Oklahoma.

Steyn, natch, before going on to mention that Kate Smith has also been purged by the juiceless SJW skinbags at Yankee Stadium. Mark winds it up:

Eighty years later, the social-justice wankers can barely comprehend anything written before 2008. So it’s not enough that, hedged in by the ever narrowing restraints of correct attitudes, our age cannot make anything of its own; it is also necessary that the entirety of the past be erased. Hence, at top right, that ludicrous cover-up of the Kate Smith statue in Philly. As I said on Rush, she looks like the third child bride of Mullah Omar.

But that’s what pop culture is reduced to in 2019: a literal cover version of Kate Smith. Incidentally, if Miss Smith’s “God Bless America” cannot be heard because she also sang “That’s Why Darkies Were Born”, why should Bing Crosby get away with singing “White Christmas” on the all-holiday radio playlists every December? After all, in the very film where he introduced that song to the world, he also appeared in blackface!!!

So “White Christmas” should also be banned – unless, of course, Bing happens to be a Democrat Governor of Virginia.

We are in Pol Pot’s Year Zero. The demolishers (as Victor Hugo calls them in our Notre Dame Tale for Our Time) are determined to ensure there will be nothing left.

What else could anyone expect from Pol Pot’s ideological offspring?

Report drops, hilarity ensues

Hemingway creates the new mantra: Remember The Names.


Keep Molly’s slogan in mind while reading this:

MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace exploded in the aftermath of Attorney General Bill Barr’s press conference Thursday morning. Wallace’s mental condition visibly deteriorated during the course of one particularly impassioned rant, in which she smeared Barr as a “shill” and a “human shield” for the President, until she was reduced to repeatedly crying, “Why? Why?”

The grief-stricken Deadline: White House host began her tirade with a number of accusations directed at the President: “As the country’s chief executive, he sat in his pajamas watching Fox & Friends maligning the FBI, maligning Robert Mueller, maligning Rod Rosenstein.”

And watching the Gorilla Channel too, no doubt.

She then turned her ire to Barr: “Rule of law had a deficit because Donald Trump had been kicking it in the teeth for 22 months. And what the country’s Attorney General did was walk in there and back up the guy doing the kicking.”

“Why?” She demanded. “Why?”

There will be a strong wave of trying to bully the press, saying, “It’s over! It’s over! No collusion, no obstruction.”

If you ask me, there ought to be way more than just “bullying” in store for you despicable shitbags, bitch. There ought to be public mockery—harsh, aggressive, and ceaseless. You and your pestilential colleagues ought to be hounded out of restaurants, harrassed in public, never allowed a moment’s peace anywhere you go. You and your dishonest reportage should be spurned and scorned; your private lives should be fair game for investigation and exposure by intrepid muckrakers. Your careers as “journalists” should wither and die from mass disinterest, forcing you to Learn To Code. The enormity of your wilfully destructive crimes demands no less.

There’s a whole helluva lot more schadenfreudelicious dementia and mental breakdown on display here, so much of it that I won’t wade into any more of it for the nonce. Rather, I’ll toss out a couple of the more toothsome morsels from Barr’s press conference.

Attorney General William Barr doesn’t take any nonsense, especially from the liberal media. After his remarks to the press, Barr opened the floor for some questions. CBS’ Paula Reid asked about how Barr has presided over the release of this report, noting on concerns about the redaction process, as Barr’s remarks about spygate are being used in Trump fundraising emails, he’s exonerated him on collusion, he’s cleared him of obstruction, and had words that were generous to the president.

“What do you say to people on both sides of the aisle, who are concerned that you are trying to protect the president,” she asked. 
“It just seems there’s a lot of effort to go out of your way to acknowledge how this was difficult for him,” quoting the portion of the remarks where Barr said, Trump “faced an unprecedented situation.”

“Well, is there another precedent for it,” replied Barr.

“No, but it’s unusual that…,” said Reid.

“Okay, so unprecedented is an accurate description, isn’t it,” said Barr.  

One more bite:

Reporter: “Given that, why did you and Mr. Rosenstein feel the need you had to take it to the next step to conclude there was no crime, especially given DOJ policy?”

Barr: “The very prosecutorial function and all our powers as prosecutors, including the power to convene grand juries and compulsory process that’s involved there, is for one purpose and one purpose only. It’s to determine yes or no, was alleged conduct criminal or not criminal. That is our responsibility and that’s why we have the tools we have. And we don’t go through this process just to collect information and throw it out to the public. We collect this information. We use that compulsory process for the purpose of making that decision. And because the special counsel did not make that decision, we felt the department had to. That was a decision by me and the deputy attorney general. Yes.”

Reporter: “Did the special counsel indicate that he wanted you to make the decision or that it should be left for Congress?

It ain’t Congress’ decision to make, halfwit. As Barr already told you, that’s his job. Scads of unhinged mental disorder from the Hollywood not-so-smart set to be found here, should your funny bone need more stimulation. But sad, sorry truth remains:

Barr Is Right About Everything. Admit You Were Wrong.
After Trump’s vindication, the liberal media and its allies in government should face a reckoning. I’m not holding my breath.

Nor should you, Chris.

For nearly four years, members of America’s ruling class, especially those in the media, the academy and government, have operated on one central, unquestioned assumption: orange man bad. This stifling orthodoxy led to a blind, counterfactual faith in the theory that Mr. Trump had somehow colluded with “the Russians” (never well defined) to win the election. Again, the specific charges were always amorphous — plastic enough to change as needed. That’s hardly surprising: That’s the way conspiracy theories always work. The Russian collusion hoax was in fact nothing more than a massively multiplayer coping mechanism for people who couldn’t accept the results of the 2016 election.

But why is it not enough to simply acknowledge that you dislike Mr. Trump and disagree with his policies? What psychological purpose does adding the fiction of a conspiracy serve?

Well, it was a reassuring totem—like a toddler’s passy, blanky, or teddy bear—for your basic, run-of-the-mill liberal ignorrhoids on campus, in coffee shops and craft-beer bars, in vegan restaurants, and other such urban dens of hipster iniquity. But for the power-elite operatives of the Swamp who actually perpetrated the thing (and their always-helpful Enemedia rumpswabs), there was a different and much darker purpose: they were desperately trying to sweep the nefarious crimes of the Obama junta and the Clinton cartel under the rug and out of view, before they came back around to bite them all in the ass.

Bottom line: they tried to construct a gallows, from which they hoped to politically hang Trump, on a shaky-at-best foundation of lies. The failure to keep this tottering, slapdash structure from collapsing has now driven the whole lot of them right into batshit lunacy—real, literal insanity—from distraught, weeping “journalists” and celebutards to creepy, slimy hack-politicians like Adam Schitt, Jabba the Nadler, Bernie the Billionaire Commie, and all the other Sleazeball Hall Of Fame dis-honorees.

For the sake of their own mental health, I offer this advice to rattled, addled Lefties drowning in a sea of their own tears or collapsing into drooling catatonia all over the nation: You lost the 2016 election. Trump is, and will most likely remain, President of the United States until at least January 2021. Hillary!™ is not and never will be President. GET OVER IT. At long last, do what you so smarmily demanded Trump guarantee to during the debates: accept the results of an election you lost, rather than try to undo it by subversive, illegal, and treasonous means.

Honestly, though, I hope they ignore my advice and carry on as before with this circus. They’re destroying themselves; they’re depressed, panicked, and completely miserable. They have nothing whatsoever to offer but more of the same bughouse shitshow they’re putting on now, along with the same tired, proven-failure policy proposals that have crashed and burned a thousand and one times already. And if that craptacular combination doesn’t result in the Demonrats’ complete undoing and their eventual banishment to history’s junkheap at the hands of a fed-up American electorate, then the American electorate will damned well deserve what it’s gonna get.

Buttplug is IN!

I know this is kinda old news and you guys knew about it already, but I just couldn’t resist posting that title.

South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg officially announced on Sunday his candidacy for the Democrat presidential nomination in 2020.

And he plans to bend America over and give it the same deep, hard, and thorough reaming South Bend got.

A minor slip

Climate Change (formerly Global Warming, formerly Global Cooling, formerly “the weather”) hoaxers shoot selves in foot, fail to notice.

The far-left ThinkProgress reports that scientists have finally proven that the theory of man-made Global Warming is a total hoax.

Of course, no one will admit it, but that is exactly what has happened.

A new scientific study shows has revealed the following:

Current CO2 levels of 410 parts per million (ppm) were last seen on Earth three million years ago, according to the most detailed reconstruction of the Earth’s climate by researchers at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) and published in Science Advances.

Yes, you read that correctly, three million — million — years ago CO2 levels on Earth were the same as they are today, but there is one major difference between three million years ago and today…

Three million years ago, we humans were not driving cars or eating the meat that requires cow farts; we weren’t barbecuing or refusing to recycle or building factories; there was no Industrial Age, no plastic, no air conditioning, no electricity, no lumber mills, no consumerism, no aerosols.

In fact, three million years ago, there were probably no human beings on Earth, at least not human in the way we use that term today. And yet…

CO2 levels were the same then as they are now…

Hmmm…?

Ummmm…uhhhhh…hey, Denier, look! SQUIRREL!!!

Just a gigolo update! Another John Heinz-Kerry self-beclowning.

“How do you get a bachelor of arts in a science?” asked Rep. Thomas Massie, of Kentucky’s northern 4th District, during a House Oversight and Reform Committee hearing on Tuesday.

“Well, it’s [a] liberal arts education and degree — it’s a bachelor,” Kerry said.

“OK, so it’s not really science,” replied Massie. “So, I think it’s somewhat appropriate that somebody with a pseudoscience degree is here pushing pseudoscience in front of our committee today.”

Kerry fired back, “Are you serious? I mean, this is really… happening here?”

To which Massie said: “You know what? It is serious. You’re calling the president’s cabinet a kangaroo court, is that serious?”

“I’m not calling his cabinet a kangaroo court,” Kerry said. “I’m calling this committee he’s putting together a kangaroo committee.”

Massie asked, “Are you saying he doesn’t have educated adults there now?”

“I don’t know who it has yet,” Kerry said, “because it’s secret.” [snip]

“Are you aware that since mammals have walked the planet, the average [atmospheric carbon dioxide] has been over 1,000 parts per million?” Massie asked.

“Yeah, but we weren’t walking the planet,” Kerry said. “We now know that definitively, at no point during at least the past 800,000 years, has atmospheric CO2 been as high as it is today.”

Massie shot back, “The reason you chose 800,000 years ago is because for 200 million years before that, it was greater than it is today.”

“Yeah, but there weren’t human beings,” replied Kerry. “It was a different world, folks. We didn’t have 7 billion people living here.”

Massie continued, “So — how’d it get to 2,000 parts per million if we humans weren’t here? …Did geology stop when we got on the planet?”

No, but it’s readily apparent that the Democrat-Socialists’ declared reverence for SCIENCE! is strictly conditional: it starts and stops according to whether it’s politically useful to them or not at the time.

Can’t live with ’em, can’t…live with ’em

To quote my own self in Aesop’s comment section: “The question is no longer can we live peaceably alongside such people? The question now is, why on earth would we WANT to?

When their frothing partisan witch-hunt and attempted coup predictably explodes in their faces, they try to gaslight the once and current Attorney general, who accuses the law enforcement and intelligence communities under the illegal Kenyan president of turning the full force of governmental power against his political opponent for political reasons. They feign shocked incomprehension at how using secret intelligence courts and vague malarkey about imaginary foreign influence as carte blanche to go trolling through then-billionaire and current POTUS’ entire life and business dealings is banana-republican at best. Then they turn on their attack dog for failing to manufacture fake news goods, when he and his rabid Shrillarites turn up nothing but a couple of sleazy lawyers self-sliming themselves.

And then double down, and claim there was something, rather than nothing, there, even though they had two years and millions of dollars to find something, anything, and came up empty.

These are not the actions of rational people in control of their faculties.

They are not, despite the likelihood of criminal indictments potentially all the way to the entirety of the last administration, the actions of merely evil people facing the  consequences of their crimes coming to fruition and punishment.

These are people deep in their own fürherbunker, cheerfully directing sweeping counterstrokes by armies long ago wiped out and surrendered, and waving their arms in delusional glee as they imagine their triumphant return to power and the destruction of all their enemies, real and imaginary.

These are not sane, evil people you’re dealing with.
These are insane evil people you’re dealing with.
Cornered, unpredictable, unreachable, and with an army of similarly deranged flying monkeys every bit as irrationally delusional as their psychotic overlords.

They’re either going to have to be put into restraints (gently or not), and then secluded and treated according to the magnitude of their psychoses; or they’re going to have to be put down like rabid dogs.

There is no longer any third option. One does not let a mad man into the cockpit or onto the bridge of a jetliner or aircraft carrier, and one cannot abide them running rampant citywide, creating chaos and mayhem at every place the voices in their head so direct them.

That there is going to have to be an intervention is a given.
Whether they survive it is an open question.

Yep—a question whose answer I find myself giving less and less of a flying fuck either way about with every passing day. The sad, simple fact is that we see so much of this utter batshit lunacy nowadays because Real Americans have indulged it for way too long. As any parent knows, the more bad behavior you tolerate, the more bad behavior you’re gonna get.

My quoted comment above at Aesop’s was in reference to this pluperfect sample of bad behavior from the degenerate Left, an example of just how low they’re willing to go in their race to the bottom of the American cesspool:

Rep. Dan Crenshaw, a former Navy SEAL who was wounded in Afghanistan, was derided the left and accused of “playing the wounded victim” after he called for “deference” in discussions of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Crenshaw, 35, who wears an eye patch after losing his right eye in Afghanistan, has received two Bronze Stars, including one with valor, the Purple Heart, and the Navy Commendation Medal with Valor.

He criticized Rep. Ilhan Omar this week for appearing to downplay the Sept. 11 attacks in a recent speech. “It’s terrorists who killed almost 3,000 Americans, we should talk about it that way. We should talk about it with deference,” said the Texas Republican.

Talia Lavin, a New York University journalism professor who resignedfrom the New Yorker last year after she incorrectly identified a U.S. immigration agent as a Nazi sympathizer, slammed Crenshaw as “captain shithead” on Twitter. “The real victim, captain shithead, speaks,” wrote Lavin, linking to Crenshaw’s video.

Freelance writer Rob Rousseau wrote to Crenshaw, “You’re deliberately lying about what [Omar] said you eyeless fuck.” The comment appears to have been removed.

Ryan Cooper, a national correspondent at The Week, blasted Crenshaw’s comments as “fascist propaganda” and claimed the congressman was “play[ing] the wounded victim.” “[C]lassic fascist propaganda technique: whip up a storm of murder frenzy, then operatically play the wounded victim,” wrote Cooper.

I won’t even bother with correcting this jackass; it ain’t worth the bother. He and the rest of his vile, misbegotten breed are not amenable to logic, do not merit courtesy, and deserve not one iota of respect or deference from decent people. They are uninterested in good-faith debate, and—contrary to the occasional assertion of some milquetoast “conservatives”—are not just fellow Americans who may be ill- or misinformed, but who have “good intentions” nonetheless.

No, not hardly. The American Left are rigidly determined to march in the blood-soaked footsteps of their murderous ideological forebears—dragging everyone right along with them, be they willing or no. Their intentions for all who oppose or resist them are anything but “good.” They are beyond reason, beyond rationality, and beyond redemption. The quest for a path to living in peace cheek by jowl with such abhorrent creatures is worse than just hopeless folly; it is dangerous, in all sorts of ways.

What the hell are they TEACHING these kids nowadays?

Wait, hold on—this is an evangelical Christian school we’re talking about here?

On Thursday, the evangelical Christian school Taylor University announced it had invited Vice President Mike Pence to give its 2019 graduation speech. A tremendous uproar ensued, with students and alumni reporting that the decision made them “sick” and expressed support for “hate” and “harmful bullish*t.” The school told PJ Media it would not yield to pressure and was still proud to have Pence speak at graduation.

“The invitation stands. We are looking forward to hosting Mr. Pence on our campus next month,” James Garringer, director of media relations at Taylor University, told PJ Media on Friday.

Yet the pressure is mounting. As of Friday afternoon, 2,393 people have signed a petition on Change.org protesting the decision to invite Pence.

“Inviting Vice President Pence to Taylor University and giving him a coveted platform for his political views makes our alumni, faculty, staff and current students complicit in the Trump-Pence Administration’s policies, which we believe are not consistent with the Christian ethic of love we hold dear,” Alex Hoekstra, a former staffer for President Barack Obama and a 2007 Taylor University graduate, said in the petition.

Then it looks like your education is woefully incomplete, snowflake.

Others proved more angry and visceral.

“I have never been made to feel so physically ill by an email before. Taylor University, you should be ashamed of yourselves,” Claire Hadley, who graduated from Taylor in 2015, began in a long Facebook post. “I am physically shaking. The fact that the school who claims to love and support me, and each of it’s [sic] students and alum, would invite such a vile individual to speak on the most important day of the year??”

“Physically shaking,” is it? Oh, WAAAAH. Nut up, buttercup; dry your childish tears, still your quivering, pouting lips, and somehow summon the courage to tolerate the expression of a dissenting view once in a while without suffering a complete mental breakdown over it. See, it’s like this:

“Inviting the sitting vice president of the United States, and former Indiana governor and congressman, to speak at commencement is not an attack on students, faculty or alumni with differing political views or opinions about Mike Pence,” Kevin Holtsberry, a 1994 Taylor alumnus and a former policy advisor at the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, told PJ Media.

“In a time when free speech and intellectual diversity is under attack, particularly on college campuses, I hope Taylor sticks to its commitment in the face of what I am sure will be unrelenting hostility from a vocal minority,” Holtsberry concluded.

I’m so old I can remember a time when free speech and intellectual diversity were cherished principles on campus—ideals to be scrupulously maintained, even promoted, rather than “hate crimes” from which the fragile sensibilities of silly, ignorant little twits must be shielded.

Which means I am really, REALLY old.

Disagreeing with a person does not entail “hate” or violence against him or her, and Taylor University graduates should understand that. They should also know that the Bible’s position on sexuality is at odds with that of LGBT activism.

Taylor University would have been right to invite Mike Pence, even if the university did not agree with his Christian views on sexuality. Pence is a vice president, a former governor of Indiana, and a former leader in the House of Representatives. Students should be glad to hear him speak at graduation.

Sadly, this incident illustrates yet again the trend of liberals demonizing dissent from their ideas. Conservative speech is not violence, and Mike Pence is not “rooted in hate.”

Kudos to the school for standing firm against these whining, fascist brats. Who knows, maybe the kiddies will learn a little something useful about freedom of speech and the value of broadmindedness from this brutal assault on their delusions, to emerge from their nightmarish trauma as more rational, tolerant people.

Not that I’m betting that way, mind. Usually, it takes until they’re around forty or so for the Lefty conditioning to wear off.

Ladies and gentlemen, your next affirmative-action president!

Because it’s the gay guy’s turn, that’s why.

No, Democrat wonder candidate du jour Pete Buttigieg is not some bridge-building centrist who really gets the vibe of Normal Americans and promises to bring us all together in a festival of hugging and liking each other. That’s a con. He’s just another leftist who wants to do all the same miserable things to people like you and me that every other pinko trying to pick up the torch from Felonia Milhous von Pantsuit wants to do. Only to get past our defenses, to avoid tripping our alarms like Big Chief Liz and Willie Brown’s Ex do, he tries to be really low-key and boring about it.

Plus he’s gay, you know – another thing that’s boring about him, although the media makes like it’s some super-hip and exciting twist. Welcome back to the cutting edge of 1979 – he’s gay, and he’s definitely going to freak out the squares whether they like it or not! In that vein, he recently bravely took on the Veep’s non-comments about him and being gay and so forth. Here’s the most recent public comment by Mike Pence on Pete Buttigieg, uttered in 2015. Brace yourself for this fireball o’ hate!

“When WSBT 22 asked Pence what he thought of Buttigieg’s announcement [of coming out as gay], he replied, “I hold Mayor Buttigieg in the highest personal regard. We have a great working relationship. I see him as a dedicated public servant, and a patriot.”

YOU MONSTER! Now Pete is bravely resisting this raw, four-year-old bigotry! “And that’s the thing I wish the Mike Pence’s of the world could understand, that if you have a problem with who I am, your problem is not with me. Your quarrel, sir, is with my creator.” Take that, super-confused nice guy Mike Pence! Pete Buttigieg is not going to just stand there while you don’t talk about him and his gayness!

As I have so often stated about ((((DEM JOOOOZ!!!))), my problem with Buttiplug ain’t that he’s gay; it’s that he’s a liberal. And yes, I do intend to refer to him henceforth as “Buttplug.” I saw Sefton and Ace doing it, and it made me laugh, so I’m swiping it myself. If that seems homophobic to you and gives you Teh Sadz, well, I just hate it all to pieces for ya, I really do. Bottom line on the latest free-rider in the ludicrously overcrowded Dem-Soc Kandidate Klown Kar:

In fact, if you look at everything Pete Buttigieg is promising, you will not find one single proposal that either increases how much of your own earnings you get to keep or that increases your freedom. Not one. Just like with every other liberal Democrat, everything he would impose upon you will make you poorer and less free. But to him and his ilk, that’s fine, because your prosperity and your liberty are not the goals. They are obstacles to the real objective – more prosperity and more power for people like Pete Buttigieg.

He doesn’t want a society where Americans come together. He wants to keep ripping us apart, while using his soothing tones and unity clichés to okey-doke us into letting him into the Oval Office. And if we are fooled again, like so many suckers were by Barack Obama, we’d find the new boss is the same as the old boss.

Let’s face it – the America the Democrats are trying to trick us into accepting is not the one we want.

Actually, Kurt, they already built their America all around and over us. All they’re trying to do now is put the finishing touches on the ugly, uninhabitable thing. They thought they’d done it with Ogabe; they were driven completely around the bend in November 2016, when that assumption turned out to be just a little premature. But only a little, and they haven’t packed their tools away quite yet.

Gropey Joe goin’ down

Too bad, so sad. He musta pissed off somebody important, I guess. On the other hand, he’s a sleazy, duplicitous asshole bereft of even a teeny-tiny shred of integrity, and he always has been. So fuck him.

As he moves toward a presidential run, Joe Biden has been under fire from the Left for his treatment of Anita Hill, but in his 2007 memoir, Clarence Thomas offered a different perspective on Biden’s performance during his confirmation hearings.

Thomas recalled, “Throughout my life I’ve often found truth embedded in the lyrics of my favorite records. At Yale, for example, I’d listened often to ‘Smiling Faces Sometimes,’ a song by the Undisputed Truth that warns of the dangers of trusting the hypocrites who ‘pretend to be your friend’ while secretly planning to do you wrong. Now I knew I’d met one of them: Senator Biden’s smooth, insincere promises that he would treat me fairly were nothing but talk.”

After his initial (USSC) confirmation hearings, Thomas received a visit from the FBI asking him to respond to the (Anita) Hill accusations, which he categorically denied. The one thing Thomas credits Biden for is that Hill had initially requested that her name be withheld from members of the Judiciary Committee when she submitted her statement, but Biden said he would only accept a signed statement.

Initially, the matter was supposed to be kept confidential. Ahead of the vote, Biden told Thomas on the phone that “he was torn over his decision and has brought two statements with him to the committee meeting that day, one for me and one against.” Ultimately, however, Biden said he’d have to vote against Thomas because he disagreed with his beliefs.

At the same time, however, Biden said he’d defend Thomas if the Hill story ever became public, along with another matter concerning a leaked draft opinion from the appellate court that had been drawing criticism.

“Judge, I know you don’t believe me,” Thomas recalled Biden telling him, “but if any of these last two matters come up, I will be your biggest defender.”

Thomas recounted, “He was right about one thing: I didn’t believe him. Neither did Virginia (his wife). As he reassured me of his goodwill, she grabbed a spoon from the silverware drawer, opened her mouth wide, stuck out her tongue as far as she could, and pretended to gag herself.”

Heh. Speaks very well of their intelligence and ability to judge good character—another trait Biden lacks. No matter, though; as I said, Uncle Gropey must have pissed off some higher-up pretty badly, because the recent sudden barrage of bad PR on him ain’t no accident.

This is all taking place in the context of the #MeToo movement/hysteria in which the accusation of imappropriate douchebaggery was sufficient to send Al Franken back to doing whatever the hell he is competent to do. How does a Democrat party that trashed Brett Kavanaugh based on scurrilous fictions accept as its nominee a guy who becomes a human octopus when around women? Electorally, how does a Democrat party that hopes to use preference for women as a political sales pitch in 2020 do that when you have reels of video of their putative standard bearer pawing away? You can’t. And even though Bernie Sanders is getting the heat for being behind this, none of Biden’s rivals have stepped forward to defend him. Which brings me to the next point.

The more interesting phenomenon is happening on the right. As I mentioned above, Biden has a lot of friends on the right side of the aisle who are coming to Biden’s defense.

Why Republicans or conservatives feel obligated to wade into a Democrat circular firing squad to save Joe Biden from his own behavior is simply beyond my comprehension. This whole episode is exactly what Senator Rubio described, that is, it is a cynical and dirty political hit orchestrated by one of Biden’s rivals for the nomination. Who cares? Why should we defend a guy who just last year was fine with Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser being given credence and being protected from any adversarial questioning? Politically, why would we a) want to help the (on paper) strongest Democrat candidate survive an own-goal and b) why would we want to go on record as seeming to defend a groper. Why can’t we agree with the proposition that Biden is a nice guy and, at the same time, let him live under the #NewRules he helped develop?

Better yet, why can’t we acknowledge instead that he’s nothing remotely like a “nice guy” and never has been, seize on any and everything we can use to destroy him utterly just as he would one of ours, and revel in jumping up and down on his stinking carcass after we’re done? Diplomad says enjoy the karma:

A typical old-style corrupt Democrat politician, a poor man’s Edward “Watch-What-My-Oldsmobile-Can-Do” Kennedy, Biden loved cameras, spouted 1980s vintage pedestrian “social justice” slogans, and yet nestled comfortably in the pocket of banking and credit card interests. He tried to portray himself as just, “Uncle Joe, your neighbor. Let’s have a beer.” Yawn. A bore. Only his gaffes, ponderous lectures, and hair-transplant travails made him mildly amusing. I found surprising when Obama picked him as his VP in 2008, but, those wiser explained that it made sense: Biden could bring in some middle class male white vote; perhaps ease the concerns of powerful financial people about Obama’s leftist views; serve as the voice of experience; and, of course, he would not outshine President Obama. A correct calculation? I don’t know. I leave that discussion to pollsters and campaign historians. I know one thing for certain, he did not capture this white dude’s vote, nor allay this white dude’s concerns about the Obama misadministration.

Well, Uncle Joe got himself screwed over in 2016. It seems he thought that eight years as Obama’s loyal sidekick finally would earn him, entitle him, ensure him the machine’s backing for the Democrat nomination that he had sought for some 30 years. Nope. Not so fast, white guy. Obama promised that to Hillary Clinton and her powerful money printing press. Joe was talked out of running, given a “surprise” Presidential Medal of Freedom, and sent off to graze in Delaware. See ya, Joe!

As we can see from the score or so of calamities now running or about to run for the Dem nomination in 2020, the ground in the Democratic Party, the world’s oldest political party, has shifted radically. Poor Joe, apparently, did not get the memo, the one that says white guys not welcome, or he misunderstood it, “That can’t mean me! I love women! I love black people! I don’t want them back in chains!” He thought, I guess, that he could gain an exemption from the identity politics mantra.

Gropey just ain’t fanatically Marxist enough for today’s loony radicals, nor confrontational enough to openly endorse the gang violence that is the modern Left’s bread-and-butter MO. He personifies the incrementalist Old Guard, so they have no more use for a relic like him than they do Hillary!™. He could declare himself a woman, have his dick hacked off, and release photos of himself sucking random cock in a subway toilet and it still wouldn’t be enough to put him over with the freaks, geeks, and headcases that are now his party’s base.

Elsewhere, Leftards are having shitfits over Trump’s nitwittery and lack of (harrumph harrumph!) gravitas for this bit of lighthearted hilarity:

Know how I always say that Proggies are a bunch of priggish, pinch-faced nags without a sense of humor? Yeah, that.

modernliberals.jpg

So long, Gropey Joe, and thanks for all the fish.

Reaping and sowing update!There are so many women coming out against Joe Biden that you’d think Trump had just nominated him to the Supreme Court.

And yet there are those rushing to Biden’s defense against what is clearly an oppo dump by the other Lilliputian Democrats (ahem: Bernie Sanders) who lack Biden’s stature and — well, we won’t call it gravitas, as that has never been a word applicable to Biden. Who are they?

Naturally, they’re the do-gooder Republican crowd; the same people who still haven’t stopped clucking about Donald Trump’s boorishness and inadequacies.

Marco Rubio called Biden’s travails a political hit job. He said it was “Dirty Politics 101” and lamented that things won’t stop with Biden.

Bill Kristol touted the stories of Biden’s “kindness and compassion” he was struck by.

And Meghan McCain said Biden was “truly decent and compassionate.” One almost gets a Raymond Shaw/Manchurian Candidate vibe out of the NeverTrumpers defending Biden this week.

And once again these are people who ought to be ignored.

Joe Biden isn’t kind, and he’s not compassionate. He’s a garden-variety attention-whore hack politician with personal habits tending toward depravity, and if he’s gobbled up by the left-wing mob before he can touch off yet another failed presidential run, it is of no particular abomination to the right side of the political fence.

Biden made his bed, and made it again and again. Let him lie in it. When someone worth defending against the #MeToo mob is accused, let that be a time to push back against #MeToo excesses.

Not this. This is Social Justice in its true form.

Indeed it is. Let there be one set of rules and one set only, rigidly enforced against everyone. If these are the ones Lefty wanted then they damned well better be the ones Lefty lives by, with no exception or indulgence granted, whether he finds them congenial when his own butt is caught in the blades or not. He and his shitlib confreres should be compelled to stew in their own fetid juices, and to hell with every last one of the sonsabitches.
