What’s obviously missing in this story: again?

Well, a few weeks ago it was some Hillary Clinton voters expressing their anger at the election of Trump to the office of the POTUS, by torturing a mentally challenged white teenager and live streaming it on Facebook. The horrific attack caused furor because it came at a time that the DNC operatives with bylines were desperate to create the illusion that America was under attack from the racists, misogynists, and other assorted evil people that the left want you to believe is the only reason Trump could beat crooked Hillary. They danced around what happened for a while, and we then spent days after with people actually telling us why 4 black teenagers brutally abusing a handicapped white kid while screaming “Fuck White People” and “Fuck Trump” didn’t amount to a hate crime or racism. The story disappeared from the news soon after that, obviously because it wasn’t the narrative these douchebags wanted to tell.

It looks like we have more of the same. Facebook was again used to stream the live rape of a Swedish woman bu three men for whom we never get a description. Trained like I am to pick up on these queues after decades of our DNC operatives with bylines doing the same when reporting on criminal or bad behaviors by the left, it became immediately obvious that the lack of details about the perps could only mean that there was another concerted effort to hide misbehavior by a group the left knows is trouble but would like to prevent us from knowing so. My first guess was that the lack of detail probably comes from pressure from the authorities not to divulge details that would embarrass the leadership cast or fear of retribution from the authorities. After all, in Europe, saying things that are not permitted, even when they are true, can and has landed people not just in trouble with the authorities, but behind bars. I did some digging, and in the comment section of this article dealing with the issue, it looks like someone has confirmed my suspicions. I expect them to end up paying for revealing information that the elites in Brussels have told the powers that be is taboo. All because the truth reflects horribly on them and what they are doing to the annoying and ungrateful serfs they are caring so hard for.

Keep it up you people. The more of this we see the more people will realize that the credentialed elite class should no longer be allowed near the leavers of power. Anyone willing to put their citizens in definite harm’s way in the name of an ideological vision and ideal, deserves the boot. I hope the Swedes go all Viking on the people doing this to their country.

$9 Trillion in debt! WHO YOU GONNA BLAME?

Read the title of my post as a spoof on the whole Ghostbusters song – the good one from back then, not the idiotic PC reboot that Hollywood douched us with last year – because it is appropriate. The other day another old democrat crone was asked for an explanation of why the country accumulated $9 trillion plus dollars in debt with absolutely nothing to show for it (a lot of vote buying there and Hillary still lost), and Pelosi, in her grandeur, blamed Boosh. I am starting to think Boosh might be some kind of inhumane super fiend, because the guy can do everything impossible.

Let’s all sign it, baby: If the left is called out on something bad, who ya gonna blame? “George BOOSH”! Catchy…

Here we go:

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi blamed former President George W. Bush and the Republicans on Friday for the more than $9 trillion that has been added to the national debt under President Obama’s watch.

Pelosi argued that under Obama, the annual budget deficit, which contributes to the national debt, has been reduced dramatically, and said that without Obama’s work, the national debt would be even higher. She also mostly blamed Bush for not paying for the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

That same old tired trope again. Obama was great for the economy! Boosh’s Wars! This crap has to be because Pelosi knows for a fact that it was Boosh that bombed the twin towers. She must also think (or want everyone to believe) that it was Boosh whom unilaterally decided to invade Iraq. Thusly, poor godsend Obama struggled to end those evil wars, by losing them, and only managed to start conflicts all over the place – because of Boosh’s mind control, according to Pelosi (or was that all because of the evil Noble Peace Prize whispering in his ear?) – destabilizing the ME and the world in the process, had to spend all that money. It could never be that congress, mostly when it was totally controlled by democrats, felt obligated – probably because of Boosh’s evil super powers, again – to spend trillions more than the broken economy the democrats left us with after their social justice home-loan lending schemes imploded, so they could engage in buying votes, enriching special interests, and fattening donkey campaign coffers.

“When President Obama stood on the steps on the Capitol eight years from next week, the [budget] deficit was $1.4 trillion — one year deficit,” she said. “It’s reduced by 70 percent in his administration. Much of the increase in the national debt that has occurred from this time still springs from two unpaid-for wars, cost that we owe our veterans following that, giveaways that they gave to the pharmaceutical industry, and the high-end tax cuts that have carried forward without any job production. Absent the work of President Obama, this national debt would be even higher.”

Pelosi has some gall. Let me point out that $1.4 trillion dollar deficit was done by the congress she ran after the 2006 election, which remind everyone overrode evil Boosh to spend that money. Those of us that understand who decides how tax payer money gets spent, and who can sign for it or veto it, that is, if they can avoid that congressional override. Based on her own words, we are left basically connecting her accusations of that money being given to fat cats, with her. But somehow it still is Boosh’s fault they did that. Then you got this:

Pelosi noted the work done by former President Bill Clinton to balance the budget or leave a surplus.

You mean the work done by Newt Gingrich, thrice before it stuck? Gingrich dragged the smarter Clinton kicking and screaming away from the leftward turn his people and that crime syndicate capo he married for political convenience had been driving us for the first 2 years of his administration, and dismantled a lot of the horribly costly and wasteful welfare state. I wonder how that expensive welfare state fared under Obama, and if that coupled with the depressing and miserable Obama economy might have more to do with?

And then we have the other shoe about to drop: Obamacare. A monster that is poised to bankrupt America, if it is not slain soon. I bet Pelosi would like us to believe that was also Boosh’s fault even though not a single republican voted for this monstrosity and Boosh was on his ranch in Texas clearing brush. This is the Obama legacy, but the tools want you to believe someone else is responsible for 8 years of amateur hour.

Lets all sing it now: If you are a democrat, and you get called out on being crooks, who ya gonna blame? “George BOOSH”! If someone points out, you fucked America over good, who ya gonna blame? “George BOOSH”!

Catchy indeed. That Boosh guy is the most powerful villain in human history I tell you..

The Last Report

What do Baltimore, St. Louis and Chicago all have in common? First, all three have seen huge surges in crime in the last few years, with St. Louis and Baltimore vaulting to the murder capitals of the United States. And second, all three have now been the target of damning DOJ investigations:

The Chicago Police Department routinely violates civil rights, uses unnecessary force, discriminates against minority residents, and fails to hold officers accountable — creating a climate of distrust, violence, and fear that makes residents and cops unsafe. That’s according to a massive new report that the US Department of Justice released on Friday.

As part of the investigation for the report, the Justice Department reviewed thousands of pages of documents, conducted hundreds of interviews with officials and residents, and participated in dozens of ride-along observations with police over 13 months.

Federal investigators attributed the Chicago Police Department’s (CPD) vast problems not to individual officers but to policies from the city and police department that regularly failed to adequately train officers and hold them accountable for wrongdoing — sending a message that bad behavior is tolerable.

This isn’t unexpected, of course. The attempt to cover-up the shooting of Laquan McDonald (and the subsequent revelation that Chicago cops were routinely destroying dash cams); the revelation of a black site where suspects were taken to be abused; the recent expose about how the CPD covered up for a cop who was routinely taking money from drug dealers for protection. But the scale of this is simply massive. First-hand reports of abuse and discrimination — many from cops themselves. A record of investigating only a tiny fraction of complaints, a culture of escalation of dangerous situations. And, making everything worse, a culture of denial and cover-up. Here is just one example:

I mentioned at the top that these three cities have all seen huge surges in violent crime. Balko (and many reseachers) don’t think this is a coincidence. When people don’t trust the cops, crimes become way harder to solve and prevent. And a good way to make people not trust cops is to hold cops accountable when they do bad stuff. The DOJ does not think (and neither do I) that Chicago is filled with bad cops. They lay the blame squarely on policies that fail to create accountability and even encourage this sort of thing.

Now you can contrast this to de Blasio “vile anti-cop rhetoric” and ending of stop-and-frisk, which has results in a gigantic surge in … well, actually crime has fallen in New York. To the point where the Daily News admitted they were wrong to opposed ending stop-and-frisk. (Mark this down. It may be the only time I ever say anything positive about de Blasio. Well, two things: he is, for the moment, not Hillary Clinton).

The good news, this should be the last we hear of this. Jeff Sessions, our pending AG, has indicated he will stop these investigations, end consent decrees and get the feds to stop bothering with this.

Payback for not voting democrat!

I was wondering when the democrats would fuck over the Cuban community for not voting for Hillary, and they didn’t disappoint or wait long to hand it to them. President Nobel Peace Prize does another solid for tyrants. Of course, those in Havana love and hail the move. Remember that the policy Obama just did away with basically was put in place to help people fleeing a progressive utopia, or for those of us that live in the real world, a prison state. I guess the democrats only like the latinos that come here for the free shit and that vote for them, and this spiteful move by Obama says it all.

Crime Sheet

2 rather important murder trials are now under way, both involve race, and with both, the outcomes are fairly certain. Dylan Roof gunning down 9 church goers, and Michael Slager, a Charleston police officer who shot a fleeing man in the back 8 times, both shooters are white and all victims are black.

The easy one first. Dylan seems like a troubled youth with a bucket load of mental problems, but the judge not only found him competent to stand trial but allowed Dylan to represent himself during the trial. What bothers me is that Dylan offered to plead guilty to murder and accept life without the possibility of parole in exchange for taking the death penalty off the table. A reasonable offer and one that the prosecution should have embraced. But here’s the rub, with white shooter/black victims, the racial component must take center stage, so countless millions (the cost from trial, through appeals, up to the actual injection, if it ever happens)will be wasted for what will be little more than a show trial. Getting back to my disgust for the very concept of hate crimes, where one person’s hide is more valuable and must exact a higher price than anothers, a sentence consistent with justice must now jump over another hurdle, artificially placed based on nothing more than the color of skin. If roles were reversed any prosecutor worth dick would take the life deal in a second, then go out for pizza.

Now on to Slager. There is both dash cam footage and private party cell phone video of the actual shooting. First off, why do rookie cops (5 years on the job, he should have known better) feel compelled to give foot chase on something as low level as a fix ticket infraction? We aren’t talking about a mass murder fleeing the scene who will most likely continue his killing ways, or even a bank robber fleeing with a sack full money, Slager knew who this guy was, he had his ID, knew he was unarmed, knew he had done nothing except drive with a busted taillight, knew he would pose no danger to any passerby’s, yet, he still felt it necessary to give chase on foot, lamebrain. A better course of action, impound the car (while inventorying the contents for any illegal contraband), then send him his ticket in the mail and go get them donuts while they are hot.

As far as the charge, yes, Slager needs to do prison time. There is no excuse, none, zilch, nada for shooting anybody in the back. Slager testified that he was afraid of Scott, how so? Scott was running away from him, had nothing in his hands, no history of violence against cops, no justification whatsoever existed for the application of lethal force. There probably was a scuffle (another reason you don’t foot pursue unless you absolutely have to) but the scuffle was over, Slager was in no danger and what we see is Scott retreating. I’m OK with manslaughter as long as he gets a serious sentence. Oh, and 8 shots? no marksmanship badge for you.

Perspective

As usual, if you followed the media narrative this morning when the sad story broke out about another stupid attack at Ohio State, their speculation went one way, and obviously the wrong way. Before enough facts where out, and as this always plays out with the narrative crowd, the idiots writing articles and commenting at the usual lefty dives such as the HuffPro insane asylum called it all wrong. For this crowd, i had to be Trump supporting, gun toting assholes that are stealing America from the good-thinkers, like them, that obviously did it! More gun laws are going to be needed, and since anyone that is a Trump supporter has to be motivated by hate, racism, homophobia, and whatever other cool term the prog kids throw around to identify those ungood-thinkers, it had – it just had to be – one of them behind this sad affair.

Of course, us ungood-thinkers immediately knew that odds where we were dealing with another follower of the religion of peace, guns had not been involved – Obama was not ridding this to sell his sensible gun banning policies immediately, which was a dead giveaway there obviously was no gun play – as the initial reports mentioned a car and knifes, things followers of the religion of peace have been advocating should be used by their Jihadi recruits in the not so distant past. We also suspected that interest in this story would die out as soon as the facts came out, due to lack of interest in reporting on something that contradicted the narrative the left so desperately needs (don’t worry I am sure some DNC paid paid operative will commit some crime sooner than later that they all will try to blame on others as has been going on for the past year or more).

At least justice was dealt out and the bad guys where captured or killed. But with the narrative not flowing, I suspect this story will go away. Unless the left decides to ask for sensible car and knife laws. How much do we ant to bet that when someone points out the perp was taken down by someone with a gun, their response will be we need more gun control (read disarming law abiding citizens).

OK, that was actually a good move

Everyone here knows that I have very little love for Ryan these dahys, but when he does something right, I will give him his props. From the article:

Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) on Wednesday persuaded Republicans to postpone votes on bringing back legislative earmarks until 2017 after reminding members of President-elect Donald Trump’s promise to “drain the swamp” of Washington.

House Republicans were set to hold a secret ballot on changes to their internal conference rules that would have allowed lawmakers to direct spending to projects in their districts under certain circumstances.

Based on what lawmakers were saying in the meeting, “it was likely that an earmark amendment would have passed,” according to a source in the room.
“Ultimately, the Speaker stepped in and urged that we not make this decision today,” the source said.

Behind former Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), Republicans banned earmarks after winning the House in 2010 and have stuck by that policy despite grumbling from both sides of the aisle.

I am glad Ryan put an end to this terrible, terrible idea, and very impressed he did it for the right reason. I am really, really angry that the republican establishment douche-bags thinks it is time to bring back pork barrel spending now that they are in the majority. WTF, have you not glommed that the fact so many people voted for Trump was precisely this sort of statist waste, you fucking idiots?

With the GOP now set to control both Congress and the White House next year, some Republicans are agitating for change.

Reps. John Culberson of Texas, Mike Rogers of Alabama and Tom Rooney of Florida filed an amendment to GOP rules that would ease the earmark ban by creating a new process for targeted spending.

A separate proposal by Rooney that focused more narrowly on Army Corps of Engineers projects appeared to have the votes to pass on Wednesday, several lawmakers said.

Not only no, but hell no. As was pointed out before: no matter how good the original intention of the idea – and I am not saying these people have good intentions at all, and suspect they are teeing this up this way precisely because they can get the votes from others that actually in this one case see this as a good move – it will end up abused.

Short cuts even for what some might believe to be good things, just leaves the door open for others that later come along, to do bad things, as a lot of liberals, driven psychotic because Trump inherited the government machine they just spent the last 8 years weaponizing to force thing their way, are now realizing.

Mo earmarking. Despite all the arguments that it is needed to make some thing move faster, this idiotic practice is all but guaranteed to devolve back into what it was: a machine to allow those that use that practice to collect campaign money by pushing for pork barrel spending at the tax payers expense.

Here is some advice Mr. Ryan: never let this shit come back under the “Drain the swamp” administration. if you do, I am going to assume you did that because you wanted to sabotage this move to defang the establishment.

What could have changed?

It looks like after 8 years of ignoring such things as an indiscriminate campaign of drone strikes against all sorts of shady ass-clowns or otherwise, and a massive escalation of US military “kinetic” activity that has left the Middle East on fire and in shambles, by President Nobel Peace Prize of all people, that we suddenly have a return to the good ole days where the usual scumbags that are part of one or another cabal of organizations anyone inclined to believe in apocalyptic conspiracy theories involving the one world government antichrist movement, and others like me that see it for the collectivist devil it represents, would point to. In this case it is the criminal ICC suddenly deciding that US forces are again committing war crimes. note the distinction this time around though. It is no longer the top guy, but “US Forces” that are being accused.

Battlespace prep, people. Nothing but the crooked globalists covering their collective asses. Why not the cries to get Obama, huh? Fuck em.

They told me if Donald Trump was elected…

Because he was such a belligerent buffoon, he was almost certain to start WW3. Then again, news like this, coming from the Nobel Peace Prize winner’s administration, where then SecState Clinton showed her awesome diplomatic skills and “reset” the frayed relations evil warmongering Boosh so damaged with the Russians. shit, I remember the current Community Organizer in Chief and the wanna-be crime syndicate kingpin that wants to get the job mocking those that warned the reset had failed and in fact had caused relations to really sour. I guess this sort of stuff makes sense if you have the ability to see the nuance in things. At least that’s what the collectivist crime syndicate tells us rubes when we try to point out their dissonance and discorded bullshit.

I am going what I have seen from Obama. He promised to stop all the strife, heal the world, and stop the rising oceans, only to start even more wars than war mongering Boosh. Shit, he even managed to un-win both of those wars Boosh started and had all but wound down, despite the treasonous attempts by the left to make them fail. Now the Middle East is a disaster, Iraq and Afghanistan are firmly in the loose column, with Egypt (Arab spring baby!), Libya (where they went to war so a Clinton partner-in-crime could make money on oil), and Syria all turned into disastrous war zones. Iran is getting a nuke, Saudi Arabia is fighting the Iranians in Yemen, Turkey clearly is heading down the path to an Islamic dictatorship after what now looks like a clearly staged coup attempt that allowed Edrogan to purge his political enemies, and Israel is waiting for Obama to screw them one last time on the way out.

Things are not better elsewhere either. North Korea is still a huge problem. The Philippines is shifting towards China, Japan and South Korea are thinking they may need their own nukes because the US can’t be trusted (and they are right), Russia as shown above is causing trouble, and there are scores of other hot spots across the globe where a military forced to keep a ridiculously high tempo and is wearing down the people and gear it has are being told to do more with less. In fact, the world is probably in a more precarious and dangerous situation – due to lack of leadership from someone I will leave unmentioned – than it was since the Cold War. And maybe it is even worse than that. not that things are very good here at home either. Rigged primaries, rigged campaigns, cheating and lying, abuse of power and blatant banana republic legal challenges, all hidden by a complicit group of propagandists claiming to be objective.

What you didn’t know any of that? Maybe that was because of the DNC operatives with bylines now finding no reason to complain about the US being belligerent. After all, these are not really war-wars, and this strife can’t be blamed on the inept foreign policy of th last 8 years, right? Obama, and by definition both his previous and future SecStates, are doing it for peace! Not to steal oil, or avenge daddy, or whatever other stupid trope the left fed people back when. Hillary, having such a long and distinguished resume of great achievements, will fix it all!

No matter who wins this election, Americans lose. I guess the choice is between which one will do the least damage, and I that those of you thinking that will be Clinton need to lay off whatever controlled substance you are abusing.
