Science: yer doin’ it wrong

Science without doubt isn’t science at all.

Let’s consider for a moment, your very best efforts to have me fired.

You’ve called me an “ultra-right wing conservative,” who is both “anti-education,” and “science-doubting.” Interestingly, you offer no proof. Odd, for a lover of science. So I challenge you to do so now. Please provide some evidence that I am in fact the person you’ve described. And by evidence, I don’t mean a sentence taken out of context, or a meme that appeared in your newsfeed, or a photo of me standing next to a politician or a talk-show host you don’t like. I mean actual proof of what you claim I am.

Also, please bear in mind that questioning the cost of a college degree does not make me “anti-education.” Questioning the existence of dark-matter does not make me a “dark-matter denier.” And questioning the wisdom of a universal $15 minimum wage doesn’t make me an “ultra-right wing conservative.” As for Morgan Freeman, I agree. He’s a terrific narrator, and a worthy replacement. But remember, Morgan played God on the big screen. Twice. Moreover, he has publicly claimed to be a “believer.” (gasp!) Should this disqualify him from narrating a series that contradicts the Bible at every turn? If not, why not?

Anyway, Rebecca, my beef with your post comes down to this – if you go to my boss and ask her to fire me because you can’t stand the sound of my voice, I get it. Narrators with unpleasant voices should probably look for other work anyway, and if enough people share your view, no hard feelings – I’ll make room for Morgan. But if you’re trying to get me fired simply because you don’t like my worldview, well then, I’m going to fight back. Partly because I like my job, and partly because you’re wrong about your assumptions, but mostly because your tactics typify a toxic blend of laziness and group-think that are all too common today – a hot mess of hashtags and intolerance that deepen the chasm currently dividing our country.

Re-read your own post, and think about your actual position. You’ve publicly asked a network to fire the narrator of a hit show because you might not share his personal beliefs. Don’t you think that’s kind of…extraordinary? Not only are you unwilling to engage with someone you disagree with – you can’t even enjoy a show you claim to love if you suspect the narrator might not share your view of the world! Do you know how insular that makes you sound? How fragile?

I just visited your page, and read your own description of you. It was revealing. It says, “I stand my ground. I fear no one & nothing. I have & will fight for what’s right.”

Maybe I’m missing something, but I don’t think the ground you’re standing on is worth defending. If you truly fear “no one & nothing,” it’s not because you’re brave; it’s because you’re unwilling to expose yourself to ideas that frighten you. And while I can see that you like to fight for what you think is “right” (in this case, getting people fired that you disagree with,) one could easily say the same thing about any other misguided, garden-variety bully.

In other words, Rebecca, I don’t think you give a damn about science. If I’m wrong, prove it.

As you may have guessed, that’s the estimable Mike Rowe eviscerating a nitwit who wrote his bosses demanding he be fired because she doesn’t like political views she assumes he holds. Attempting to destroy a dissident’s ability to make a living—along with camping out on his lawn or porch en masse and screaming threats of violence at him and his family both day and night—has become a standard operational tactic with liberal-fascists, of course, one of the most acutely despicable of their many Gestapo-like transgressions against basic decency and tolerance.

But Rowe isn’t having any of it, and he manages to dispose of the twit not only deftly and completely, but calmly and even politely as well. She responds to him almost right away with the expected libtard incoherence and near-illiteracy, either failing or refusing to meet Mike’s challenge to provide an intelligent argument supporting her specious, spittle-flecked accusations in the typical libtard style we’ve all come to know and loathe.

Mike’s equable, reasoned approach isn’t my style anymore, for better or worse, although as incredible as it may seem it was in the early years of this site. No, I ain’t kidding, I promise. I had a good handful of liberal regulars here, in fact, several of whom I actually liked personally and enjoyed intellectually jousting with. Those debates back then were always civil and respectful, without any of the rancor that we’ve latterly been dragged into.*

But Lefty burned away all my patience a long time ago, and I no longer have the slightest inclination to either debate or attempt to persuade him, preferring instead to flamethrower the flesh off his bones and then scatter a little dirt over the whole smoking ruin just to keep the odor down. But I can respect Rowe for his forbearance and willingness to engage with them just the same. I can’t honestly say I believe there’s any real use in it—which, when I think about it, is kind of depressing. Rowe’s sincere, good-hearted belief in Lefty still retaining some humanity and decency in spite of voluminous evidence to the contrary speaks well indeed of his own basic decency, and probably makes him a better man than I.

Oh yeah, and from her picture she’s every bit the corpulent, grotesque bull-dagger caricature you’d assume, as ugly as she is stupid and vicious—charmless, petty, spiteful, repellently unattractive in every way imaginable. So there, dammit.

*NOTE: If the idea of a reasonable, sane, intelligent liberal seems inconceivable to you (as well it might, given the shrieking brats, violent Marxist extremists, and gibbering pathological headcases we’re inundated with these days), you guys should look up a fellow named Marc Danziger, a serious motorcyclist and staunch 2A guy that I became quite good friends with in the Olden Thymes. He blogged back at the very dawn of the blogosphere under the handle “Armed Liberal.” Sadly, I’ve lost touch with him over the years, but he was a great guy, and I miss him. Don’t know if any of his original writings survive out there, but it’d be nice to think they did, if only as a reminder of a better, more civilized age, now lost forever as our hold on respectful if passionate disagreement loosens and we slowly descend into madness, hatred, and outright physical conflict.

Shorter version: WAAAAAH!

Take their memes from them, use them for your own purposes, club them to death with them, and make the little libtard propagandists cry.

I should have realized that any person, idea, or phrase — however neutral in its intention — could be twisted into a partisan cudgel. I had always reported on fake news generated from both the left and the right. But after the 2016 election, shocked US Democrats, looking for explanations, adopted the concept as an easy answer to the puzzle of Donald Trump’s election. And in response, Trump and his supporters saw the term as a threat and an insult — and a weapon.

The end of “fake news” as I knew it came on Jan. 11, 2017, when Donald Trump — master of branding — redefined the term to mean, effectively, news reports he didn’t like. The previous day CNN and BuzzFeed News had reported on the existence of the Steele dossier.

Trump stood on stage during his first press conference since Election Day and pointed his finger at CNN’s Jim Acosta. “I’m not going to give you a question — you are fake news.” (He also called BuzzFeed a “failing pile of garbage.”)

In that moment, fake news was conscripted to fight in the partisan wars, and was co-opted by Trump. This instantly made it harder to win the actual fight against the manipulation of platforms for profit and propaganda, the real challenges facing democracy in a connected age, and the risks of censorship from platforms and governments alike.

And let’s all just never mind that the Steele dossier was in fact the biggest Big Lie of them all, a record-shattering demonstration of Fake News in full effect, and that Trump was absolutely right to call out the manipulative worms pimping the thing at CNN and BuzzFeed on it. So how ya liking your Alinksy Rule 4 now, punks?

Why yes, as a matter of fact I DID intend that last paragraph as a practical example of Rule 5. As Glenn says: “Amazing how often those Lefty torpedoes have circled back around on their creators.” Ain’t it just. Funny as hell, too. But then, torpedoes will do that sometimes.

Pow wow chow!

Steyn is having WAY too much fun batting Fauxcahantas around like a cheap cat toy.

Why, back in 1984 she submitted some of her favorite dishes to the Pow Wow Chow cookbook, a “compilation of recipes passed down through the Five Tribes families.”

The recipes sent in by “Elizabeth Warren—Cherokee” include a crab dish with tomato mayonnaise. Mrs. Warren’s fictional Cherokee ancestors in Oklahoma were renowned for their ability to spear the fast-moving Oklahoma crab.

But then the white man came and now the Oklahoma crab is extinct, and at the Cherokee clambakes they have to make do with Mrs. Warren’s traditional Five Tribes recipe for Cherokee Lime Pie…

Even in a world where everyone’s incredible, some things ought to be truly incredible. Yet Harvard Law School touted Elizabeth “Dances with Crabs” Warren as their “first woman of color”—and nobody laughed.

But, with the impertinent jackanapes of the press querying the bona fides of Harvard Lore School’s first Native American female professor, the Warren campaign got to work and eventually turned up a great-great-great-grandmother designated as Cherokee in the online transcription of a marriage application of 1894.

Hallelujah! In the old racist America, we had quadroons and octoroons. But in the new post-racial America, we have—give me a minute to fish out my calculator—duoettrigintaroons! Martin Luther King dreamed of a day when men would be judged not on the color of their skin but on the content of their great-great-great-grandmother’s wedding-license application. And now it’s here! You can read all about it in Elizabeth Warren’s memoir of her struggles to come to terms with her racial identity, Dreams from My Great-Great-Great-Grandmother.

Unfortunately, the actual original marriage license does not list Great-Great-Great-Gran’ma as Cherokee, but let’s cut Elizabeth Fauxcahontas Crockagawea Warren some slack here. She couldn’t be black. Like Barack Obama’s composite girlfriend, she would if she could, but she couldn’t. But she could be 1/32nd Cherokee, and maybe get invited to a luncheon with others of her kind—”people who are like I am,” 31/32nds white, and they can all sit around celebrating their diversity together. She is a testament to America’s melting pot, composite pot, composting pot, whatever.

Just in case you’re having difficulty keeping up with all these Composite-Americans, George Zimmerman, the son of a Peruvian mestiza, is the embodiment of endemic white racism and the reincarnation of Bull Connor, but Elizabeth Warren, the great-great-great-granddaughter of someone who might possibly have been listed as Cherokee on an application for a marriage license, is a heartwarming testimony to how minorities are shattering the glass ceiling in Harvard Yard. George Zimmerman, redneck; Elizabeth Warren, redskin. Under the Third Reich’s Nuremberg Laws, Mrs. Warren would have been classified as Aryan and Mr. Zimmerman as non-Aryan. Now it’s the other way round. Progress!

Of a sort, I suppose. The truly wonderful part of it is how ALL of the liberal pieties have now whirled on their creators and are chewing them to pieces. I’ll leave it to you guys to debate whether or to what extent the onset of this welcome cannibal picnic might have been driven by the above-the-odds installation in the White House of the only guy willing to actually fight back against them, and to deny the righteousness of those pieties in no uncertain terms.

See, guys? All those years the RepubliCons were telling us they just couldn’t possibly win against them, that there was no hope…and as it turns out, they’re fragile as broken eggshells, and all it really takes to crush them into powder is to just grab a hammer and start swinging.

UNEXPECTED!

A good summary of Trump’s accomplishments to date.

This Thanksgiving, Americans in general — and free-market conservatives in particular — have plenty for which to be grateful. And much of it would be absent had the White House’s current occupant not become president on November 8, 2016.

The day after Donald J. Trump defeated Hillary Clinton, Princeton University economist Paul Krugman called Trump’s victory “the mother of all adverse effects.” He predicted “very probably…a global recession, with no end in sight.”

Yeah, well, he was hardly the only one—a fact whose delicious pertinence I will reveal in just a minute. In the meantime, indulge me.

  • The Dow Jones Industrial Average, NASDAQ, and S&P 500 all hit record highs on Tuesday. The Wilshire 5000 Index calculates that some $3.4 trillion in new wealth has been created since President Trump’s inauguration and $5.4 trillion since his election. Fueled by the reality of deregulation, expectations of lower taxes, and a new tone in Washington that applauds free enterprise rather than excoriate it, the economy is on fire.
  • Atop the second quarter’s 3.1 percent increase in real GDP, and 3.0 in 3Q, the New York Federal Reserve Bank predicts that 4Q output will expand by 3.8 percent. This far outpaces the feeble average-annual GDP growth rate of 1.5 percent on President Obama’s watch. Meanwhile, the IMF expects global GDP to rise by 3.5 percent this year. So much for a Trump-inspired “global recession.”
  • Obama’s War on Coal is gone with the wind.
  • Trump wisely extricated America from the bogus Paris “global-warming” deal.
  • Obama’s “Clean Power Plan,” a $993 billion act of economic self-sabotage, now rots — with Communism — atop the ash heap of history.
  • For every new regulation that Trump has imposed, 16 have been erased.
  • The FCC has begun to dismantle Obama’s “Net Neutrality” takeover of the Internet, which functioned marvelously, thank you, before his needless e-power-grab.

There’s more—lots more, a veritable shit-ton more—at the link. But that isn’t the important part, nor is it my point in excerpting (and linking—most especially linking) this piece. The conclusion:

The Never Trump faction still claims that the president of the United States “is no conservative.” And yet, with rare deviations (such as free trade), he spends nearly every day implementing the conservative agenda. Ideas that center-Right activists have demanded for decades are becoming public policy, one after another — to the pleasant surprise of even some of Donald J. Trump’s most enthusiastic supporters.

Ten months down. Thirty-eight to go. The best is yet to come.

Thank you, Mr. President!

Now just guess where all the above came from. Yes, all of it, right down to that last line.

Go on, guess.

I know, right?

If this doesn’t qualify as a jumbo-super-triple-scoop of WINNING!™ with whipped cream and a cherry on top, I sure don’t know what would. But I’ll refrain from making too much sport of them for now, so as not to scare them off just as the light finally looks like coming fully on at last. Bill Kristol, on the other hand—well, I’m afraid I’m going to have to see a good bit more groveling than this from him.

Best. Fucking. Presidency. EVER.

Greatest self-beclowning EVER

At last: REAL news!

CNN ran a story on Monday describing the “wonderful” visit of Sesame Street character Elmo to a refugee camp in Syria, where he concludes that “refugee kids are just like us.”

“They like to play and learn just like Elmo and all his friends at Sesame Street,” Elmo said during an interview broadcast on CNN via Facebook Live. “Elmo thinks it’s important to know that everybody is the same deep down and that’s very important.”

And there it is, Progressivist folly distilled down to the pure, the blushful Hippocrene. By an inanely giggling fucking puppet from a children’s TV show. It’s kinda profound, in a hilarious sort of way. Certainly it was, shall we say: UNEXPECTED!™

“It was really sad because Elmo’s new friends told Elmo that they had to leave their homes because it wasn’t safe for them to stay,” he continued. “And that made Elmo really sad and sometimes a bit scared.”

I’m sure Edward R Murrow, Huntley and Brinkley, and Ernie Pyle would all be proud of this exercise in real, serious journalism. Why, even old liberal-propaganda warhorse Walter Cronkite must be shedding a tear of pride over this hard-hitting effort at boldly reporting important news from a Middle East hellhole soberly and evenhandedly, without flinching. Gravitas, anyone?

Aa for poor Elmo’s being “a little scared”: hell, you oughta be, little guy. You were surrounded by people who would just as soon kill you as not. Well, insofar as it’s possible to kill a fucking puppet, I mean. Sheesh.

On the other hand:

The bizarre story comes amidst a rising problem of credibility at the network.

Well, spank my ass and call me Shorty, why ever would THAT be? But this penetrating report should go a long way towards restoring it. Next up: Elmo dons a thobe and keffiyah and visits a mosque to perform a marriage ceremony uniting his friends Bert and Ernie! Then they all have the stuffing torn out of them by the howling, ululating mob.

THIS…is CNN. No really, dammit, it is. Now stop snickering.

They’re all nuts, folks. They are all well and truly, completely and irrevocably, certifiably bug-fuck nuts.

Reality bites!

The weeping, the wailing, the gnashing of teeth.

Republican Karen Handel defeated Democrat Jon Ossoff in a closely-watched special House election Tuesday night, the Associated Press projected.

The loss was a disappointing setback for Democrats, who had hoped to capitalize on President Trump’s low approval ratings to win the long-standing Republican seat. It was also the fourth straight loss this year for Democrats in their attempts to win a Republican seat and take the momentum into the 2018 midterms. They now must win 24 GOP seats to retake control of House.

Go check out Kellyanne Conway’s Tweet at the link. It’s priceless, trust me.

Hate to bring up NPR again—okay, no I don’t, not when I’m rubbing their noses in it like this—but another thing I heard there earlier today was a big, long story and interview on and with the Golden Boy, the Miraculous Ossoff, who was going to make Trump The Bad Man stop hurting them at last. They were so cheery, so hopeful; they knew, they just KNEW, that at last they’d get themselves a victory. I mean, with ALL THAT MONEY raised for him, it couldn’t be more clear that the nation was ready to give the commie-colluding orange ursuper his well-earned comeuppance at last.

Ossoff is wonderful. Ossoff is charming. Ossoff is bright. Determined, capable, experienced, wise. He himself went on a fairish bit about his nearly-realized intention to roll back the dismal tide of Trumpian sewage all by himself, as if he too had come to believe his press clippings amounted to more than just a passel of “liberal” wishful thinking, another gauzy dream soon to be denied.

Gee, guess they didn’t realize that ALL THAT MONEY came not from the great masses of Americans who don’t seem to hate Trump nearly as much as they do, but almost entirely from nump-brained Hollywood nitwits swilling the same tainted KoolAde the rest of the sad, piteous Left was.

And I looked, but inexplicably, I cannot find a link at NPR to this morning’s worshipful puff-piece. Odd, that.

Cry, cry, cry, libtards. And while you’re at it, suck on it, good and hard, until you choke. The Trump Train is still rolling, and we ain’t done whupping your pathetic asses quite yet.

Poor dears; they have all these big plans for us witless proles, whether we like ’em or not. But those darned pesky elections keep getting in their way. Guess now we can all get back to earnest lectures about the importance of “bipartisanship” and “working together” and all the other tommyrot they try to peddle when they’re losing.

At least until the next mainstream, typical Democrat Socialist flips out and tries to shoot a bunch of us, I mean. After this setback, I’d guess it won’t be too long a-coming, given how much they seem to have invested in their delusional fantasy of winning this one.

Libtards got NOTHING

Ahh, the sweet, sweet taste of nothingburger, washed down with a huge slug of liberal tears.

Trump supporters, swamp dwellers, and Americans from all walks of life had their eyes glued to coverage of the testimony by former FBI Director James Comey to the Senate Intelligence Committee this morning.

The hearing was treated like a major sporting event by D.C. locals, who lined up to gain entrance to local establishments for standing-room only viewing parties.

And how’d that work out for them? Oh, about like this:

These Photos of Sad Brooklyn Hipsters in a Bar Watching the Comey Hearing Are Hilarious

And they surely are. You really have to go enjoy these photos; I can’t recommend them enough, they are WONDERFUL. There are many of them, all uplifting, all edifying, but this one maybe sums it all up best:


LibtardTears.jpg

Aww, poor dears; looks like things aren’t quite working out for them as they wish, and it couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of fascist assholes. As for the weak, cowardly non-entity Comey: he has once and for all proved himself to be PRECISELY the kind of oleaginous, self-serving shitweasel we sent Trump to drain the DC swamp of. Breitbart has the six most important revelations from Comey’s testimony, my favorite of which would have to be this:

3) The obstruction of justice case against Trump just went up in smoke
Senator James Risch (R-ID) questioned Comey early in the hearing about the possibility of obstruction of justice regarding the investigation of General Michael Flynn. Risch repeatedly questioned Comey about the exact wording used by President Trump to him in private, which Comey recorded in his much-discussed memo.

The exchange leaves  Democrat’s hopes of impeachment for obstruction of justice considerably dimmed:

Comey: I mean, it’s the President of the United States with me alone, saying, “I hope this.” I took it as this is what he wants me to do. I didn’t obey that, but that’s the way I took it.

Risch: You may have taken it as a direction, but that’s not what he said.

Comey: Correct.

Risch: He said, “I hope.”

Comey: Those are exact words, correct.

Risch: You don’t know of anyone that’s been charged for hoping something?

Comey: I don’t, as I sit here.

Risch: Thank you, Mr. Chairman.

None of which should be taken to mean that they won’t be back in two weeks with another attempt, of course. They mean to obstruct and hamper Trump in any way they can; in truth, it ain’t so much about defying Trump as it is about defying US. They mean to prevent him from doing what we sent him to Washington to do; they mean to preserve the swamp, they mean to re-establish business as usual.

They oppose Trump personally, sure; they hate him, they loathe him, they’re driven absolutely frothing mad by him. But the thing they hate even more is his agenda. They don’t want the borders re-established and protected; they don’t want a more effective and intelligent war against Muslim terrorism; they don’t want the elimination of the regulatory stranglehold on our economy, the reinvigoration of capitalism and the opportunity and prosperity that will bring, and is already bringing.

As I’ve said: what we are seeing here is the DC swamp refusing to accept the results of the last election, instead launching a soft coup attempt in order to thwart the will of the American people—to put us back in our accustomed place once and for all. No more. No less.

The Comey contretemps has been just a part of that larger effort. It will be forgotten in two weeks, and Comey himself will be relegated to the obscurity that is his meager due. The treasonous, America-hating Left will be on to the next distraction, the next subterfuge.

And Trump will go right on leaving them choking on his dust, as he has been all along. It would seem to be what he does best. Far from being a “flawed” or inadequate President, he is well on his way to being one of the truly greats…just as I said all along he would. You doubters can say what you will about his lack of ideological focus, lack of political experience, etc etc etc—there is nobody I can think of who is better suited temperamentally for this fight.

The Democrat Socialist morons are still pitifully trying to pimp impeachment—for some nebulous reason, in some incomprehensible way, in service of…God only knows. Well, let ’em, I say; I only wish they would, I pray they try. Stop running your fat yaps and do it, libtards; come on, bring it, you lackwits. Do your worst. Just do it, just fucking do it. See what it gets you in the end.

As I keep saying: Trump is stupid, is he? Then what does that make all of those Supergeniuses™ he keeps running rings around, pray tell?

BEST. PRESIDENCY. EVER.

Update! Still think he’s stupid, a dope, in over his head? Still think he’s losing?

Better think again, chum.

It took only four years to build the Golden Gate Bridge and five years to build the Hoover Dam and less than one year to build the Empire State Building. People don’t believe that. It took less than one year. But today, it can take 10 years and far more than that just to get the approvals and permits.

One gentleman from Maryland was talking about a 18-mile road, and he brought with him some of the approvals that they’ve gonna be paid for. They spent $29 million for an environmental report weighing 70 pounds and costing $24,000 per page. And I said, “Do me a favor. I’m gonna make a speech in a little while. Do you mind if I take that and show it?” So I’m gonna show it. These binders on the stage could be replaced by just a few simple pages. How can a country prosper under this kind of nonsense?

I was elected to change it. All of us in government service were elected to solve the problems that have plagued our nation. We are here to think big, to act boldly, and to rise above the petty, partisan squabbling of Washington, D.C. We are here to take action. It’s time to start building our country with American workers and with American iron and aluminum and steel. It’s time to put up soaring new infrastructure that inspires pride in our people and our towns. It is time at last to put America first.

These are all things that real Americans know in their very bones: incontrovertible truths that nobody should have to bother wasting a moment trying to debate.

But never forget: this is EXACTLY the program the Democrat Socialist Party is opposed to. “How can a country prosper under this kind of nonsense?” The Democrat Socialists don’t WANT the country to prosper. They want the country humbled, staggered, brought low; they want the country forever reminded of its flaws, its depredations, its mistakes. They want the country to accept its place as a meek, docile cog in the wheel of global tyranny. They want the country not proud of its unique history and heritage, but ashamed of its supposed shortcomings.

They want us to accept the bit. Take it between our teeth, clamp down, and let them steer us where THEY think we ought to be going. THAT’S why they hate Trump so blindly, so insanely. We spit their bit out; at long last, we spit the damned thing out. And reared, and bucked, and tossed them off our backs.

We can’t be allowed to wander free. Our independence, our ability to walk our own path without their stern direction, galls them worse than a burr under the saddle.

It’s why they have to constantly harp on the sin of slavery, for example. Never mind that slavery wasn’t very much out of the ordinary at the time it was practiced here; never mind that there are plenty of nations (most if not all Muslim) where it is still extant; never mind that we fought a bloody, brutal war costing hundreds of thousands of lives to end it—another thing that sets us apart, and in truth makes us unique in all the world.

Just…never mind. Because reasons. The ultimate takeaway is America sucks, and how dare you think otherwise!

There are other examples, of course—many of them, all equally specious, facile, and as easily dismissed. But back to the larger point:

“While stressing the obvious, the administration is missing the important point. The purpose of capitalism is not job creation.” Amen to that. The purpose of capitalism is not to create health care plans. The purpose of capitalism is not to forge “livable communities” with little gardens outside your standard, government-provided apartment. “The purpose of the capitalist economy is to create wealth,” and that’s why leftists oppose it. They want to be in charge of the wealth, primarily in how it is distributed and how the earning of it is limited.

The left hates capitalism, not because of freedom and liberty — although they do. But the primary (reason) they hate capitalism is that it is the most efficient engine to create wealth for the greatest number of people in a society that has ever been devised. Nobody’s ever claimed it’s perfect. Nobody’s ever said it’s flawless. But it’s better than anything else out there, particularly anything (the) left has to offer. “The purpose of the capitalist economy is to create wealth. Employment and the subsequent distribution of the spoils of an economy are byproducts of capitalism. Since its inception, capitalism has been in a perpetual state of evolution…”

It is inarguable that the United States, in its heyday, created the highest standard of living for the most people in the history of humanity. It is inarguable. This is why the left so opposes it. Because it is a system. It doesn’t have a leader or an ideology attached to it, and therefore the left cannot control it.

And bingo, there we are, right back to the nut of it: Power. Control. I know it may seem I’ve wandered pretty far afield from the Comey comedy act with this update. But if you think it’s all unrelated, well, you probably need to think again.

The Left is being upended, at long last. Their internal contradictions, their unworkable assumptions, their megalomania, their folly—all is at long last being laid bare. In the Soviet Union, you had to stand in eternal lines for toilet paper, or shoes. In Venezuela, they’re paying a hundred and fifty dollars for a dozen eggs—or they were a year ago, anyway; it’s certainly worse now.

Their program doesn’t work. It has never worked. It never will work. Sad, grubby little apparatchiks like James Comey are a big part of the reason why.

Thank GOODNESS

The unofficial state government of North Carolina—the NCAA, ACC, and various other sportsball entities—is pleased with our capitulation to the now-unquestioned right of perverts to take advantage of our flaccid acquiescence to having them share bathroom space with our young daughters.

SAINTS BE PRAISED! Our long national nightmare is at last over, and there will no longer be any distinction made between the men’s and the ladies’ bog!

GREENSBORO, N.C. (theACC.com) – As announced previously by the Atlantic Coast Conference Council of Presidents, contracted league championships will return to neutral sites in the state of North Carolina, beginning with the 13th annual Dr Pepper ACC Football Championship Game on December 2 at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte.

“Neutral sites”? What in the hell does THAT mean?

The ACC Council of Presidents voted last September to relocate neutral site championship events in each of those sports for the 2016-17 academic year. The Council’s decision to return neutral site championships to North Carolina, beginning with the 2017-18 academic year, took place on Friday, March 31. 

“We are pleased that ACC neutral site championships will return to the state of North Carolina beginning with the 2017-18 academic year,” said ACC Commissioner John Swofford. “We value all of our partners in North Carolina and appreciate their support and cooperation. We are thrilled to renew our relationships with so many terrific people, outstanding cities and first-class venues.”

There that “neutral sites” thing is again; I can only surmise that it’s an inside-sportsball term that denotes someplace where there is no home team, rather than a site as yet unscorched by the hot cultural civil war currently raging between sane people versus determined Progressivists and their useful-idiot freaks-of-the-week.

Admittedly, I do still look forward to the day—coming really, really soon now—when I walk brazenly into the ladies’, whip out my schlong, piss in the sink, peer under a few stalls, and then declare over the very first objection anyone dares utter: I FEEL PRETTY! I expect to have plenty of company—not from the transgenders, Lord help them, but from the straight pervs who will eagerly take advantage of the new opportunities handed them by untrammeled idiot PC. And, in fact, already are.

Any society willing to completely upend its most basic strictures to accommodate the merest handful of pitiful, disturbed sickos is not a society that will long endure. Nor does it deserve to.

Why, it’s almost enough to make me welcome our new Muslim overlords; they’ll put these people, umm, straight, I’m guessing. And with a quickness, too. Hey, nobody is wrong about everything, right?

Yeah, I know, I know. I denounce myself.

Another exploding cigar

How did people this hilariously inept ever gain so much power over us in the first place?

Voting machines in more than one-third of all Detroit precincts registered more votes than they should have during last month’s presidential election, according to Wayne County records prepared at the request of The Detroit News.

Detailed reports from the office of Wayne County Clerk Cathy Garrett show optical scanners at 248 of the city’s 662 precincts, or 37 percent, tabulated more ballots than the number of voters tallied by workers in the poll books. Voting irregularities in Detroit have spurred plans for an auditby Michigan Secretary of State Ruth Johnson’s office, Elections Director Chris Thomas said Monday.

The Detroit precincts are among those that couldn’t be counted during a statewide presidential recount that began last week and ended Friday following a decision by the Michigan Supreme Court.

Democrat Hillary Clinton overwhelmingly prevailed in Detroit and Wayne County.

Gee, imagine my surprise. The Jillary recounts meant to steal the election for Her Herness are, far from clandestinely manufacturing more votes for her as usual, now revealing widespread Democrat Socialist vote fraud instead. A local—an “anonymous insider,” according to Vox—puts us some more knowledge:

People have known for years that Democrat-controlled Detroit has been rigging elections. During the Bush/Kerry election they had GOP poll watchers arrested and ran up 100 percent voter turnouts. It was so bad the Federal judges had to allow voter ID laws they had been blocking for years to take effect in Michigan.

The Hillary/Jill recount didn’t help Hillary, but it has hurt the Democrats’ reputations and may hurt them badly going forward. The count has been stopped but the state has now ordered an audit as to how 20 Democrat-controlled locations had a lot more Hillary votes than voters.

We use drivers license scans now for a computer record poll book, so they know how many voted. The worst location had 300 Hillary votes cast by 50 voters.

It’s the tip of the iceberg, and we all know it. But by all means, libtards, let the recounts proceed. Your dumb asses might find yourselves robbed of your meaningless “Hillary won the popular vote” horseshit by the time all the smoke clears.

When ciphers backfire

On Comey—and Her Herness:

Team Obama tabbed James Comey to the job of Director of the FBI primarily because he was harmless. Republicans had no problems with him and Democrats were not afraid of him. That’s not to say he is a crook. He’s just one of those careerists, who make a point of doing no more than the job requires. You run into these guys all over government because they never get curious and ask too many questions. Politicians love these guys because they look like Boy Scouts, but they never cause any trouble.

For most of what the FBI does, having a straitlaced guy like Comey at the top works just fine. He’s an able administrator, who will be respected by his staff for being fair and sticking to the rules. His lack of political ambition means he can get along with the rank and file. So much of what the FBI does is just process, they need process guys to make sure the processes are followed. The Bureau has not been the swashbuckling crime fighters we see in TV for generations. It’s mostly bureaucrats processing paper.

The decision to put him in the top job looked like a genius move until last week. Having a go-along-to-get-a-long guy handling the Clinton problem made it easy to push him into a favorable decision. The trouble is, he is an honest guy with a conscience and apparently his conscience finally got the better of him. The same qualities that made it easy for the politicians to push him around, made it easy for his subordinates to push him to take on the Clinton Crime Family in the most spectacular way imaginable.

My bet is more than a few people in the Obama White House are thinking they should have found a crook to put into that job. If not a crook, at least someone with ambition for a life in DC after his term at the Bureau was up. That’s the kind of guy who would look for a way to make everyone happy, because he wants friends in town, not enemies. Comey is looking a lot like a guy who will be happy to retire to some small college job teaching law, after he finishes up his public service at the Bureau.

Now the Democrats have the worst possible problem.

They surely do. They allowed one of the most corrupt humans on the planet, a woman nobody really likes (and a lot of people actively loathe, including Democrats)—someone who has fucked over and pissed off so many people (including Democrat Socialists) that even her impeccable Leftist credentials can’t buy her a living soul willing to go to the wall for her, excepting possibly Huma—to swindle her way into the nomination in an election year featuring a moribund economy, a disastrous foreign policy, and a terrorism problem she can’t even call by its proper name, trailing behind her more than three decades of corruption, misfeasance, tawdry grift, and utter cluelessness that will forever cling to her like a bad, bad stink.

As Z says, she is everything that’s wrong with politics, exacerbated by an ugly, hate-driven personality that no amount of phony can ever quite cover up. When Trump muttered “such a nasty woman” in the debate, a very large portion of the country was nodding their heads and thinking the exact same thing. And the Democrat Socialists willingly yoked themselves to her; no amount of this sort of wishful thinking is going to get that dead and stinking albatross from around their necks.

Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of assholes, if you ask me.

Once a badass, always a badass.

OTTAWA — Canada’s ambassador to Ireland, best known for his role in shooting dead an armed assailant inside the Parliament buildings in 2014, has once again stepped into an apparent security breach.

Kevin Vickers, the former House of Commons sergeant-at-arms, tackled a protester Thursday in Dublin during a ceremony to remember British soldiers killed in the 1916 Easter Rising.

The Global Affairs Department confirmed the incident, stating that Vickers “intercepted a protester who ran up to the podium” during the commemoration.

Security officers arrested the protester moments later.

Vickers, a former RCMP officer, was among those who responded to the October 2014 assault on Parliament Hill by rifle-wielding Michael Zehaf Bibeau, who died in a hail of bullets — including those fired by the sergeant-at-arms from his revolver at close range.

Go check out the photo for a good laugh at the weedy twerp of a douchebag Vickers took down. The story notes that Vickers was not injured in the scuffle; no word on whether the douchebag was, because who the fuck cares? As long as men like Vickers remain among us, Western civ can’t be completely counted out as dead and gone just yet.

He’s done us another favor

Another salutary effect of Trump’s victory.

Publicly, John McCain insists Donald Trump will have a negligible effect on his campaign for reelection. But behind closed doors at a fundraiser in Arizona last month, the Republican senator and two-time presidential hopeful offered a far more dire assessment to his supporters.

“If Donald Trump is at the top of the ticket, here in Arizona, with over 30 percent of the vote being the Hispanic vote, no doubt that this may be the race of my life,” McCain said, according to a recording of the event obtained by POLITICO.

Good. Whatever it takes to pry you, and as many others like you as possible, off the government teat at long last. I refer you to Cromwell again:

It is high time for me to put an end to your sitting in this place,

which you have dishonored by your contempt of all virtue, and defiled by your practice of every vice.

Ye are grown intolerably odious to the whole nation. You were deputed here by the people to get grievances redressed, are yourselves become the greatest grievance.

Your country therefore calls upon me to cleanse this Augean stable, by putting a final period to your iniquitous proceedings in this House; and which by God’s help, and the strength he has given me, I am now come to do.

I command ye therefore, upon the peril of your lives, to depart immediately out of this place.

Go, get you out! Make haste! Ye venal slaves be gone! So! Take away that shining bauble there, and lock up the doors.

In the name of God, go!

Never has that speech been more relevant.

Unity for me, but not for thee

Anybody remember when all the GOPe no-hopers were demanding conservatives rally behind their latest loser, “severely conservative” nominee? McCain? Romney? Anybody?

Nah, me neither.

It is a brutal truth that in any ordinary election cycle, Trump’s performance tonight would have placed him in such a commanding position that we would now see increasing calls for competitors to drop out and rally behind the presumptive nominee.

It is a brutal truth (for Trump fans) that this is not an ordinary election cycle. Too many Republicans (myself included) are so committed to #NeverTrump that there will be no rallying.

Would it be too mean of me to wag my finger in their faces and remind these guys that petulantly, childishly refusing to vote for Trump amounts to voting for Hillary?

Yeah, I guess it would. Never mind. Sure is funny, innit, how what goes around comes around–always and forever.

Update!The media’s Trump reckoning: ‘Everyone was wrong.’” Oh, not quite everybody, bub. But then again, I’m not a highly-trained and credentialed “journalist,” either.

Big picture update! Steyn has a look:

Ultimately, Trump’s hostile takeover of the Republican Party has only been possible because of the rigid inflexibility of America’s party system. The two-party one-party state, unchanged in 150 years, is unique in the western world, where parties are born and die according to whether there’s a market for them. If a genuine market in parties were possible here, this season there would probably be a nationalist party, a conservative party, and a soft-right party – and, over on the other side, a corporatist party and a socialist party. In the British House of Commons, there are currently 11 parties represented, plus four independents. In the Canadian House of Commons, there are five parties. In New Zealand, seven. When The Washington Post‘s Michael Gerson warns that a Trump nomination would break apart the Republican Party, the implication is that the health of the Republic depends on maintaining the same two parties of the Civil War era for all eternity. Why?

Why indeed. After all, look at what that’s done for us. Or rather, to us.

Updated big picture update! Pat Buchanan sees it too:

As long ago as the early 1990s, populist conservatives were imploring George H.W. Bush to secure our Mexican border, as tens of thousands poured across in the San Diego-Tijuana corridor. Gov. Pete Wilson turned near-certain defeat into a stunning comeback victory in 1994 by promising to send the National Guard.

Why did the establishment not respond then to the electorate? Why, instead of trashing Wilson for imperiling future party prospects with Hispanics, did the establishment not do what the people had demanded and move decisively to secure our southern border?

What is conservative about uncontrolled borders?

Why, as trade deficits with China and the world rose from the tens of billions to hundreds of billions, did the establishment not wake up and see the shuttering factories, the lost jobs and the ghost towns arising across America – and react?

Could they not see that, as we celebrated globalization, Beijing and Tokyo were practicing ruthless mercantilism and protectionism?

At the end of the Cold War in 1991, many Americans urged that, with the Soviet Empire dissolved and Soviet Union disintegrating, it was time to bring our troops home and let the rich fat nations that had been freeloading for half a century provide the soldiers and pay the cost of their own security.

Instead, the establishment opted for empire, for expanding old alliances, dumping over regimes, crusading for democracy, sending our soldiers out to remake Third World countries in the image of Iowa and Vermont.

Who now thinks all these wars were worth the cost?

Whether Trump wins or loses the nomination, the immigration, trade and foreign policies pursued by the elites since the end of the Cold War are dead letters. The nation has declared them to be so in the primaries.

Conservatism is all well and good and all, but some things just ain’t worth conserving. Read the whole thing; Buchanan also has a good “remain calm” take earlier in the piece on the possibilities for a Trump presidency that’s worth a look for anyone about to soil their Underoos over the hideous prospect.

Begone, wretched shrew, and trouble us no more!

I’m pretty bored with the whole mess already, but this is absolutely delicious.

MANCHESTER, N.H. – Both Hillary and Bill Clinton knew she would lose here — but not by this much.

Now, after a drubbing so serious as to call into question every aspect of her campaign from her data operation to her message, the wounded front-runner and her allies are actively preparing to retool their campaign, according to Clinton allies.

Staffing and strategy will be reassessed. The message, which so spectacularly failed in New Hampshire where she was trailing by 21 points when she appeared before her supporters to concede to Sanders, is also going to be reworked – with race at the center of it.

Of course. All the same, the sight of this vile, vicious, power-grubbing harridan going down in the most ignominious of defeats is a delightful one. I’m sure there will be a place found for her in the Sanders administration, but the dream of the loathsome Clintons finally shuffling off to Buffalo for good is surely a sweet one for now. This desperate flailing is kind of amusing in its way, too:

In her concession speech, which she gave about 30 minutes after the polls closed with Chelsea and Bill Clinton standing behind her, Clinton began to preview that new message — framing her remarks around a call for human rights and an end to discrimination.

“Where people are held back by injustice anywhere in America, that demands action,” she said. “We also have to break through the barriers of bigotry.” She added that “immigrant families shouldn’t have to lie awake at night listening for a knock at the door.”

Well, immigrant families don’t, actually, or not any more than the rest of us. Just the illegal ones–and them, not very much. Nice try, though.

But the Clinton campaign chose to invest heavily here. They had more than 50 staffers on the ground for months, 11 field offices and eight “get out the vote” centers. The campaign said more than 10,000 volunteers took part in the campaign.

And as the days grew closer to the voting, with Clinton still trailing Sanders by large margins in the polls, friends tried to comfort themselves and the candidate by telling her she ran the best campaign she could have.

Well, actually, I’d have to say that’s true.

And Democrats criticized the Clinton campaign’s response to Sanders’ surge.

“Gloria Steinem and Madeleine Albright are not going to appeal to millennial women,” said Marist pollster Lee Miringoff, referring to two Clinton surrogates who appeared to try and shame young women who are supporting Sanders into backing Clinton while campaigning in New Hampshire. “Bill Clinton lacing into Bernie Sanders isn’t going to work, either. People want inspiration and Bernie Sanders makes the case that his campaign is about big ideas. If you want to talk to young voters, political revolution up against incremental change is a tough case to make.”

The simple truth is, I think, that after eight years’ worth of the pure, blushful Leftist hippocrene from Ogabe, nobody really needs or wants the sour old Clinton-triangulation pisswater anymore. As Left as she and Bill always were (but pretended not to be), she’s never gonna out-Left Sanders, any more than she could Obama. And given how far Left the country itself has lurched by now…well, I repeat: who needs her?

I hereby retract my prediction from long months ago that she’d be the next president. She just ain’t got it.

She got schlonged update! Hilarious.

Another problem solved

Leave it to Milo.

Last week I unveiled my plan to settle radical Islamic jihadists — or “Syrian refugees,” as the mainstream media likes to call them — in special facilities located in the heart of upper-class liberal enclaves, such as Rachel Maddow’s back yard.

This audacious, brilliant, inspired and humane plan, to be crowdfunded under the name Milo’s Home for Wayward Jihadis, was met warmly throughout the internet, with many pledging to back the project when it reaches the funding stage.

One of the kinks we had to work out is what our jihadis should do with themselves once settled. After all, cleaning and oiling a Kalashnikov takes a mere eleven minutes, and harassing the local populace to the point they are afraid to enter the neighborhood is a hobby, not a career choice. Likewise the rape of local schoolchildren and stealing from corner shops.

Where in the west could we possibly find an appropriate workplace for these otiose thugs? One which values oppressive fanaticism, does not tolerate speech outside of specific and carefully-groomed lines of thought and which relies on intimidation to prevent the spread of illicit ideas?

Well it’s a lot easier question than you think. We will plonk them down in the gender, racial equality, and diversity offices on university campuses.

Works for me. They all deserve each other, as far as I’m concerned. And as I’ve said before, such a move has the potential to solve all our problems at once, without any heavy lifting or much at all in the way of effort required on the part of sane people. Who says there are no simple solutions to seemingly complex problems?

Begging pardon

Haven’t checked in on Jeff Lord in a while. I have been remiss.

Dear Congresswoman Wasserman Schultz:

I note with interest this statement from you with regard to the controversy over the flying of the Confederate flag on the grounds of the South Carolina State Capitol. You said:

For decades community leaders in South Carolina — and across the country — have been calling to get rid of this symbol of hatred, and action has been long overdue.

But this is just the beginning of a conversation we as a society need to have about race, bigotry and violence in this country — not the end of one.

Good enough. It’s good to know you wish to begin this conversation and I am happy to oblige. Let me begin with this question:

Will the Democratic Party finally apologize for supporting slavery, segregation, lynching, and the Ku Klux Klan?

The real damage done by your party with its culture of race and violence has been to create exactly the climate in which the Dylann Roofs of America feel they can operate. Note well that the roommate of the Charleston killer said that Roof was a “segregationist” — which is to say he was precisely emulating the culture that your party has spent two centuries creating and celebrating.

Isn’t it time for your party to finally apologize for all of this horrendous behavior that your party is directly responsible for? Isn’t it time for the Democratic Party to finally own up and apologize to black Americans?

Suddenly there is much talk about removing Confederate flags from this or that state capitol where politicians of your party — like South Carolina’s then-governor Ernest “Fritz” Hollings — placed them in the first place. Now talk is abroad about removing statues of “Confederates” — meaning prominent Democrats — from the U.S. Capitol and some state capitols. The statue of Democrat Jefferson Davis — the ex-president of the Confederacy who also served as a Democratic Congressman, U.S. Senator, and Secretary of War in a Democratic administration — has been mentioned for possible removal from its place in Kentucky’s state capitol.

Will the Democratic Party itself pay reparations to black Americans? Reparations for those party platforms that supported slavery? Not to mention for passing all those segregationist laws that were deliberately designed to evade the 14th and 15th amendments of the Constitution? Reparations for using the Ku Klux Klan as the “terrorist arm of the Democratic Party” — with that terror directly targeting black Americans? 

Amid all the tragedy of Charleston, I would suggest that it is finally time for the Democratic Party — the party you chair — to come forward and admit its role in this long-running national horror. It’s time — way, way past time — for an apology. An apology directly from the leaders of the Democratic Party to black Americans, not to mention the rest of the country, for what your party has done.

Well, I surely hope nobody is holding his or her breath. No wonder they’re all so eager to rewrite–or erase–history: it amounts to little more than an indictment of the villainous reprobates.

Torture

Quote of the decade:

“If hooking up one rag-head terrorist prisoner’s testicles to a car battery to get the truth out of the lying little camel shagger will save just one Canadian life, then I have only three things to say: Red is positive, black is negative, and make sure his nuts are wet.” – Don Cherry, Canadian Broadcasting Corporation commentator and retired head coach of the Boston Bruins

Gott. Damned. Skippy. Wonder if they’ve got that guy in a re-education camp yet? Francis has plenty more to say at the link, all of which is right on the money.

“The short answer is that people believe what they want to believe”

Science! Accept, don’t question.

It’s actually happened.

After decades of research filled with millions of meals eaten by hundreds of thousands of subjects, the verdict is in. Science is now ready to proclaim the healthiest way to eat: one diet to rule them all.

So which is it? Atkin’s, perhaps? Or Paleo? Low-Carb? Low-Fat? South Beach? Raw? Fruitarian? Veganism?

The answer, my friends, is none of the above. But it could also be all of the above. That’s because healthiest diet isn’t a specific diet at all. It’s the absence of a diet.

This is not a sudden, world-changing, mind-altering finding. It is not well suited to a blaring news headline. It is not share fodder on social media. What it is, however, is a realization that surfaced gradually and methodically: Science will never conclusively prove that a single diet is the best diet.

Further support for this notion comes from a simple glance back at the history of our species. Mankind has populated almost every corner of the earth, and in every diverse situation, humans were able to survive, even thrive, on whatever food their homes had to offer.

Even more convincing evidence has been found by observing those who have lived the longest. The University of California-Irvine’s 90+ Study has tracked thousands of Americans who’ve made it to age 90 and beyond, yielding an unprecedented wealth of information about their lifestyle habits. For lead investigators Claudia Kawas and Maria Corrada, the most surprising finding they made is that most participants didn’t seem to be too concerned with their health.

Boy, the let’s-all-be-miserable-together collectivists ain’t gonna like that one much.

Just lame

You all knew this was coming, right?

The rollout of the federal health-care exchange under the Affordable Care Act has been a grade-A debacle. There is absolutely no denying it. And The Post’s big Sunday story on the combination of poor planning and political timidity puts the entire mess into perspective. Knowing that President Obama relentlessly admonished his team that “if the Web site doesn’t work, nothing else matters” makes it all the more infuriating.

But there were two tidbits in the 2,800-word piece that were previously known but still served to enrage me, especially now that we see how well the GOP’s premeditated campaign to try to kill Healthcare.gov is working.

Waaahh, the GOP’s refusal (SOME in the GOP, it must be noted) to simply shut up and meekly go along with a program to which they are deeply, philosophically, and justly opposed–a program they CORRECTLY warned would be a disaster, and that they believed would not only do harm to the people who voted them into office but would fundamentally alter the relationship between “citizen” and Almighty State–JUST ISN’T FAAIIIIR. Cry me a river, you punk-ass bitch.

So, the federal exchange that Republicans said wouldn’t work ended up not working because it was starved of the money needed to help make it work.

Yeah. At several hundred million damned dollars for a single stinking website–so far–I don’t think “starved” is exactly the mot juste here, asshole.

Of course, foot dragging by a ’fraidy cat White House aided the failure. But after reading The Post story on the debacle that is the Obamacare debut, what the GOP gleefully calls a train wreck was a self-fulfilling prophesy courtesy of Republican sabotage.

Again: when what you’re actually talking about is representatives doing their jobs and complying with the wishes of the constituents who put them in office–in many cases for the specific reason of opposing and resisting the liberal-fascist power grab known as Obamacare–“sabotage” isn’t quite the right word here.

FACTS: you rammed this down all of our gullets without a single GOP vote in Congress. You did it as crookedly and dishonestly as can possibly be imagined, using every piece of low legislative skullduggery in the book. You lied through your teeth about it throughout the entire process, knowing full well that lying was the only way to get it implemented. Even then, you barely managed to sneak it through. And now that it’s blown up in your smarmy little faces–as it was inevitably going to, because you’re all too goddamned corrupt and incompetent to organize an orgy in a Mexican whorehouse with a pocketful of hundreds–you want to start tossing blame around, anyplace but where it actually belongs…yourdamnedselves.

I’m thinking right about now would be a really great time for some enterprising soul to go to DC, dig up that giant gavel of Pelosi’s, and jam it right up her flue. Sideways. On camera. It’d be the biggest viral vid in the history of YouTube.

I got two words for you, every single last one of you, from the Liar In Thief all the way down to the most starry-eyed ACORN volunteer schlepping petitions around and manning phone banks: FUCK, and YOU. This miserable clusterfuck is YOUR baby, right down the line; every steaming, stinking inch of this wretched turd is yours and yours alone. Kick all the sand around in the litterbox you want to try to cover it up and keep the stench from rising to the heavens; YOU cranked it out, YOU made the mess, YOU failed, and now YOU own it. First to last, start to finish, forever and ever, a-fucking-men.

And I promise you: bitch all you want, whine all you want, spin all you want; keep right on lying and obfuscating and ducking and dodging and shucking and jiving as you will, but there are a whole, whole lot of people like me who are absolutely dedicated to expending every ounce of energy we can muster making sure you get the credit (read: infamy) you deserve for it. Count on it, milksop.

Like I said, cry me a river, cupcake. Your wails of outrage and lamentation are the sweetest music we ever hope to hear.

Justice served, fresh and piping hot

More of this, and the problem will soon solve itself.

The game was called “point ’em out, knock ’em out,” and it was as random as it was brutal.

The object: Target an innocent victim for no other reason than they are there, then sucker punch him or her.

But on this day in Lansing, there would be no punch. The teen-age attacker had a stun gun. He did not know his would-be victim was carrying a legally concealed pistol.

The teen lost the game.

Tough shit for him, a fine example pour encourager les autres. More rich buttery goodness:

The 17-year-old in gym shorts approached his target. The 28-year-old Lansing man was waiting for his daughter at her school-bus stop at REO Road and Ballard Street.

Weaver approached his victim from behind, a black KL-800 Type Stun Gun in his pocket. It is capable of generating 1.8 million volts.

He passed him and turned back, pressed the stun gun into the victim’s side. Again and again, and … nothing. It had fired earlier when testing it, he would later tell police.

“The button was like stuck down … or something. I don’t know what caused it not to work,” according to a transcript of Weaver’s statement.

The intended victim moved quickly, pulling his stainless steel .40-caliber Smith and Wesson. It had a full 10-bullet magazine, and was worth about $900 police estimated.

He shot Weaver in his buttocks as the teen turned to flee.

Weaver ran, sat down across the street, his leg going numb, bleeding. Pleading.

“‘I’m sorry, please don’t kill me, I don’t know why I did that, I’m high you know, I just wanna go home,’” the teen told the man who had just shot him.

Shoulda stayed there in the first place, ya punk-ass bitch. Glenn puts the cherry on top:

And if your teenager gets shot while carrying out this kind of assault? He deserved it, and you’re a bad parent for not raising him better. Don’t complain about the gun laws. Hide your face in shame.

Damned skippy, right down the line. The old biker motto applies, here as in so many other places: don’t start no shit, won’t be no shit.

Everybody wins

You gotta love it.

Heller announced the drawing during a “Roundtable” segment on Armed American Radio Sunday evening, informing host Mark Walters, Neil McCabe of Human Events, Larry Pratt of Gun Owners of America and this correspondent that Serbu Manufacturing had been contacted by NYPDSWAT for a quote on this rifle, but refused the business, explaining that if it was not legal for New York gun owners to buy one, then they would not sell it to New York law enforcement.

“But YOU can have a chance of owning this superb .50 cal, semi-auto rifle!” JPFO announced on their website. “The JPFO logo is to be engraved onto the side of the action and this unique one-of-one rifle will have the serial number “JPFO 01”. A letter of provenance will accompany the gun from the manufacturer, stating that this rifle is 1 of 1, and it indeed is the one that NYPD could not have.

“Now, an Arizona charity is running a draw to benefit JPFO, and you could be the winner!” the announcement continues.

“This raffle is a great way to show the ‘Honorable’ NYC Mayor, what you think of the ‘SAFE Act’,” Heller told Gun Rights Examiner. “You can provide your own safety, with a .50 BMG rifle from Serbu.

“Now you might own the rifle that NYPD was turned down for on the background check,” he elaborated. “Only 1,000 tickets will be sold, and only $20 buys you a chance for a $6,700 gun! WAY Better odds than the lottery!

“You are also helping out the only Jewish gun rights org in the United States,” Heller reminds Gun Rights Examiner readers. “Let’s be very clear here — some of the most anti-rights people in this country about the RKBA are Jewish. But the most pro-freedom people on the RKBA, are Jewish, too! That’s JPFO! We put the gunpowder in ‘Never Again.’ Why not assist the Jews who have their heads screwed on right about your rights?”

Why not indeed, bless their hearts. More info here.

Talking ass

Is he ever.

Update! Related–or perhaps I should say all of a liberal-fascist piece:

President Obama warned that the GOP was “running out the clock” and “drowning out” the American people on the issue of gun control at a White House event this afternoon. “Their assumption is that people will just forget about [Newtown],” Obama said in his speech alongside the families of gun-violence victims. He accused those “powerful voices on the other side” of trying to make the push for stricter gun-control measures “collapse under the weight of fear and frustration.”

Goddamned right we are, you piece of shit. It’s very well-established that facts, logic, reason, and honesty are all things to which your side is entirely immune. And every would-be tyrant damned well ought to be afraid of a well-armed populace that is fed up and committed to not allowing him to steal one more shred of their freedom. That’s sorta the whole point of the 2A in the first place, and the more ideologically-committed of the neo-Marxist revolutionaries who have hijacked our nation –Ogabe being one of those–know it very well.

Updated update! A former SEAL, teacher, and tactical training consultant speaks some basic truth on school shootings and how to deal with them:

I deeply respect the composite American virtues: to question authority and doctrine; to be emboldened by a sense of self-reliance; to be empowered by our own critical thinking; and to be guarded by vigilance. However, these virtues are increasingly challenged in our society today by their correlative vices coupled with a degenerating irresponsibility. Our virtues become criss-crossed and uprooted when we allow ourselves to trust gun mythology and ideology; to be weakened by layers of dependency; to be disempowered by a litigious, intellectual zombie culture; and to be made vulnerable by laziness, complacency, and denial. Sun Tzu would warn us against allowing the rogue sociopath to let us become our own worst strategic accomplice.

Let previous school shootings serve as our lesson today. Let more schools stay on the active side of this menace. Under the best circumstances, more schools can negotiate this changing landscape of school security and avoid slipping down the wrong side of Sun Tzu.

I don’t necessarily agree with every single thing the man says, but he definitely lays out some wisdom and food for thought. In that, he’s about as far from an ignorant, braying jackass like Jim Carrey as it’s possible to be.

Shaming the shameless update! Shame? Not only does Ogabe have none, I doubt he even understands the meaning of the word.
