Pearl-clutching, Sphincter-Clenching Mother Truckers!

Had a conversation with my brother in New Hampshire -- a devout Democrat -- who thought he'd get my goat by pointing out how he thought my imagined hero, The Donald, really stepped in it the other day by seemingly calling for the banning of all R.O.P. Goat Humpers until things settled down.

I disabused him of the fact that I was a Donald Trump fan. I am anything but and I forswore all cult-of-personality after the electorate saw fit to reinstate The Dickless Pharaoh to another four years and consign possibly the most ideal candidate for the presidency for the time and circumstances to the scrap heap.

(I contend that if the left and right had seen through the vapid, empty, and incapable Magic Jesus and elected a bona fide proven executive to the office, we would address some points that this gaping chancre sore of a president has ignored during the last seven years. But, no, the teeming masses, yearning to double down on their PC choice of 2008, proved themselves to be sub-70 IQ mouth-breathing, mind-numbed proles yearning for more free stuff.)

My reason for backing Trump at this juncture is simple: I want to deal out the most pain and agony I can to the entrenched establishment triumvirate of media, politicians, and big biz as is humanly possible. I want to see Boner, McTurtle, The Dickless One, Rancid Penis, The Decaying Beached Whale and all her minions, all the get-along, go-along congressmen and senators, the beltway-bounded- gaping-pie-hole-pundits, the blatherers, -- all of those assholes who put self before country when it is their sworn and avowed duty to do otherwise bent double, wracked with griping bowels and wincing from an interminable case of the Hershey Squirts.

But I digress.

Last night This came across my desk yesterday and I thought -- while a little strident for Bill Bennett -- it sure smacks of all the pearl-clutching and vaopr-locking going on by the democrats and Republicans over the rosier and rosier prospect of Trump becoming the next POTUS:

They will kill him before they let him be president. It could be a Republican or a Democrat that instigates the shutting up of Trump.

Don’t be surprised if Trump has an accident. Some people are getting very nervous: Barack Obama, Valerie Jarrett, Eric Holder, Hillary Clinton and Jon Corzine, to name just a few.

It’s about the unholy dynamics between big government, big business, and big media. They all benefit by the billions of dollars from this partnership, and it’s in all of their interests to protect one another. It’s one for all and all for one.

It’s a heck of a filthy relationship that makes everyone filthy rich, everyone except the American people. We get ripped off. We’re the patsies. But for once, the powerful socialist cabal and the corrupt crony capitalists are scared. The over-the-top reaction to Trump by politicians of both parties, the media, and the biggest corporations of America has been so swift and insanely angry that it suggests they are all threatened and frightened.

Donald Trump can self-fund. No matter how much they say to the contrary, the media, business, and political elite understand that Trump is no joke. He could actually win and upset their nice cozy apple cart.

It’s no coincidence that everyone has gotten together to destroy The Donald. It’s because most of the other politicians are part of the a good old boys club. They talk big, but they won’t change a thing. They are all beholden to big-money donors. They are all owned by lobbyists, unions, lawyers, gigantic environmental organizations, and multinational corporations – like Big Pharmacy or Big Oil. Or they are owned lock, stock, and barrel by foreigners like George Soros owns Obama or foreign governments own Hillary and their Clinton Foundation donations.

These run-of-the-mill establishment politicians are all puppets owned by big money. But there’s one man who isn’t beholden to anyone. There’s one man who doesn’t need foreigners, or foreign governments, or George Soros, or the United Auto Workers, or the teacher’s union, or the Service Employees International Union, or the Bar Association to fund his campaign.

Billionaire tycoon and maverick Donald Trump doesn’t need anyone’s help. That means he doesn’t care what the media says. He doesn’t care what the corporate elites think. That makes him very dangerous to the entrenched interests. That makes Trump a huge threat to those people. Trump can ruin everything for the bribed politicians and their spoiled slave masters.

Don’t you ever wonder why the GOP has never tried to impeach Obama? Don’t you wonder why John Boehner and Mitch McConnell talk a big game, but never actually try to stop Obama? Don’t you wonder why Congress holds the purse strings, yet has never tried to de-fund Obamacare or Obama’s clearly illegal executive action on amnesty for illegal aliens? Bizarre, right? It defies logic, right?

First, I’d guess many key Republicans are being bribed. Secondly, I believe many key Republicans are being blackmailed. Whether they are having affairs, or secretly gay, or stealing taxpayer money, the National Security Agency knows everything.

Ask former House Speaker Dennis Hastert about that. The government even knew he was withdrawing large sums of his own money from his own bank account. The NSA, the SEC, the IRS, and all the other three-letter government agencies are watching every Republican political leader. They surveil everything. Thirdly, many Republicans are petrified of being called racists, so they are scared to ever criticize Obama or call out his crimes, let alone demand his impeachment. Fourth, why rock the boat? After defeat or retirement, if you’re a good old boy, you’ve got a $5 million-per-year lobbying job waiting. The big-money interests have the system gamed. Win or lose, they win.

But Trump doesn’t play by any of these rules. Trump breaks up this nice, cozy relationship between big government, big media, and big business. All the rules are out the window if Trump wins the Presidency. The other politicians will protect Obama and his aides but not Trump. Remember: Trump is the guy who publicly questioned Obama’s birth certificate. He questioned Obama’s college records and how a mediocre student got into an Ivy League university. Now, he’s doing something no Republican has the chutzpah to do. He’s questioning our relationship with Mexico; he’s questioning why the border is wide open; he’s questioning why no wall has been built across the border; he’s questioning if allowing millions of illegal aliens into America is in our best interests; he’s questioning why so many illegal aliens commit violent crimes, yet are not deported; and he’s questioning why our trade deals with Mexico, Russia and China are so bad.

Trump has the audacity to ask out loud why American workers always get the short end of the stick. Good question! I’m certain Trump will question what happened to the almost billion dollars given in a rigged no-bid contract to college friends of Michelle Obama at foreign companies to build the defective Obamacare website. By the way, that tab is now up to $5 billion. Trump will ask if Obamacare’s architects can be charged with fraud for selling it by lying. Trump will investigate Obama’s widespread IRS conspiracy, not to mention Obama’s college records. Trump will prosecute Clinton and Obama for fraud committed to cover up Benghazi before the election. How about the fraud committed by employees of the Labor Department when they made up dramatic job numbers in the last jobs report before the 2012 election?

Obama, the multinational corporations and the media need to stop Trump. They recognize this could get out of control. If left unchecked, telling the raw truth and asking questions everyone else is afraid to ask, Trump could wake a sleeping giant. Trump’s election would be a nightmare. Obama has committed many crimes. No one else but Trump would dare to prosecute. He will not hesitate. Once Trump gets in and gets a look at the cooked books and Obama’s records, the game is over. The jig is up. The goose is cooked. Holder could wind up in prison. Jarrett could wind up in prison. Obama bundler Corzine could wind up in prison for losing $1.5 billion of customer money. Clinton could wind up in jail for deleting 32,000 emails or for accepting bribes from foreign governments while Secretary of State, or for misplacing $6 billion as the head of the State Department, or for lying about Benghazi. The entire upper level management of the IRS could wind up in prison.

Obamacare will be de-funded and dismantled. Obama himself could wind up ruined, his legacy in tatters. Trump will investigate. Trump will prosecute. Trump will go after everyone involved. That’s why the dogs of hell have been unleashed on Donald Trump.Yes, it’s become open season on Donald Trump. The left and the right are determined to attack his policies, harm his businesses, and, if possible, even keep him out of the coming debates. But they can’t silence him. And they sure can’t intimidate him. The more they try, the more the public will realize that he’s the one telling the truth.

#OurLivesDon'tMatter: The Diversion..


 So a lot of you are probably wondering why The Dickless Pharaoh chose to yammer at us in Prime Time to all of us about the Workplace Gun Violence in San Burning-Doo-Doo last week.

While I ain't gonna spend a lot of time here setting up the premise, quoting, rehashing, or anything more that give that jerkwad prez more exposure than he already has -- you are all big boys and girls and can read, Google, and research for your selves -- I will say this: he's going after our guns and not-those dick-hair-bearded R.O.P. goat humpers and their ugly, berka-wearing, Moo-hammed-supporting brides to (1) never let a good opportunity go to waste and (2) to draw attention away from how incredibly fucking stupid his policy of letting the Syrian refugees into our country.

I mean, this policy of accepting these folks knowing full well and good that there will undoubtedly be some terrorists in their midst has only been out of the box for a couple of months and there have been two shocking examples of how this is gonna play out. One in France that took 130 innocent lives and now one in California's IE (Inland Empire) in which these assholes slew 14 people at a "holiday party" and injured countless others. This is certainly another classic definition of stupid, innit?

And now, penis breath proceeds to lecture us about how giving up our guns will cause this stuff to cease and desist? Forget all the stats rolling in about gun violence in states and countries having the strictest gun laws, forget the stats about gun violence occurring at so-called "soft targets", gun free zones like schools, shopping malls And so on.

Well, he does this because it will get us all wound up about gun control and make us forget about how he wants to drag several hunnert thou of this rag-headed buddies and if we are frothing at the mouth about the possible loss of a constitutional right, we will not pay attention to the shit he is trying to pull.

I dunno, I am just spit-ballin' here and sort of scatter-gunned this post to show what I think are his motives. As I said, I ain't gonna bust my ass developing a college thesis on this premise; just lay it out there and let you run with it. But, how else could you describe his stupidity?

But, before I go, here's an exit question for you: how did a middle-class working family raising a new kid and struggling to make ends meet manage to scrape together enough money to buy all the ordnance they used in the perpetration of their heinous deed?

Ponder that!

UPDATE: This was posted BEFORE the dickless wonder made his memorable speech. (You know, it was the one where he lectured us on not approaching this crisis like adults and not willing to give up one of our most sacred rights" that of gun ownership and self-defense NOT the one he gave to all the swankees at the reception.)

I happened to be watching the clown show that is usually Hannity and, out of all of the detritus and old-guy ED meds, this appeared:


What a shock and so welcome in the wake of what the ROP Fuckheads did in Paris. It's part of a series that the NRA is putting out and I for one am glad my dues are being spent on PSAs like this.

Oh, and while we're at it, how about a tally of weekend violence in President Chocolate Diapers' home town:

Ordinarily, it is easy to slam the French as Cheese-Eating Surrender Monkeys and Frogs and a Nation of Lucky Pierres but today, I cannot seem to bring myself to that level of cynicism. I pray for the victims of this latest ISIS/Goat Fucker obscenity and hope fervently that the dead perpetrators of these Parisian misdeeds are only now awakening to find that their idea of Mooz-lem paradise was a fiction and that they are in Christian Hell with their testicles being roasted over a brazier of white hot coals.


Oh yeah, and here's to our Dickless Pharaoh who is leading this parade. I'd become a Russian citizen except I don't like Vodka.

Google me with a Spoon

Are you getting as nauseated with the cutesie-pie bastardizations of the Google trademark that appear on their search site on a daily basis as I am.

I mean these Eurocommie assholes celebrate everything in their own way and have a way of "Disney-fying" reality into a world of cartoon characters.

This is just a short rant and I want to tread carefully her with this peremptory disclaimer:

I am proud to be a veteran of the armed services and I am proud to have served with every man and woman who has or are presently wearing the uniform of you country -- and, of course, this includes those of ANY race, color, religion, or creed. If they are brave enough to put up their right hand and swear a blood oath to protect and defend the country and the Constitution, then I can consider myself to be honored to be a member of that august group.

That said, when Veterans' Day rolls around, I chafe at the "me too" trivilizations, the marketing tie-ins, that abound when 11/11 rolls around. That fat Jew pig who runs Sit'n'Sleep who honors vets, using the barest, thinnest pretext to sell his fucking mattresses, is one example. The NFL being paid by the Pentagon for doing their Sunday game camo-makeover is another for example.

But you go to Google search page and encounter this, which, on the surface, it appears to be "cute" and a genuine thank you for vets everywhere. But take a look at the composition of the picture:


..closely. Relegated to the back is ONE WHITE MALE while the front of the picture have (a) a white Army enlisted female, a black Airman (note the circular collar insignia and the wings? What's that about?), A black veteran in a vest, and a black USAF or Navy woman (again, officer or enlisted not apparent). Accompanying the one white Navy male in the background is a female U. S. Marine.

Now. lookee here, I want to again emphasize that I am no racist and am about as colorblind as one can get, but these fruitball, kumbaya images would be better served were they pictures of actual hard-bitten, weathered vets or service men -- even with the same compositioning and makeup of this unctuously sweet Google-esque politically correct travesty.

So, anyone who thinks I am an angry old vet, you're right! But anyone thinking I am a racist can suck my dick -- without regard to sex, race, color, national origin, and religion.

..and that's my final word on the subject.

They'll release the details of his background..

Surrogate stand-in asshole rage-boy for dickless atheist Oregon shooter.
..as soon as they figure out how to American-ize Achmed.

ORIGINAL STORY: So, it was some disjointed atheist with a grudge against organized religion who was the perp. Mean time, our Beloved Chocolate Jesus puts the blame on where it should be by politicizing it. 

Want the real 4-1-? Just Google "Chicago Weekend Gun Violence" and you get this:
"Eight people were killed and at least 45 people were wounded in shootings between Friday evening and early Monday, making it the second most violent weekend in Chicago this year.

"The only weekend that was worse was July 3-6, when 57 people were shot, seven fatally, according to an analysis of Chicago Tribune data on shootings and homicides.

"When compared with non-holiday weekends, this past weekend was the worst with 53 people shot. The next highest weekends were Aug. 8-10 with 48, May 15-18 with 46, and Aug. 21-24 with 43."
Now Google "Weekend Gun Violence in Detroit" and you get this:
DETROIT - At least seven people were killed in Detroit over the Labor Day weekend.Police say they redeployed manpower Saturday as soon as they saw this spike in violent crime.

But by 11:59 Sunday night, the number of homicides in Detroit was up 5 percent compared to the same time last year.
..Help us to understand this, O Chocolate Jesus, you're our only hope!

UPDATE:
Hero Army vet who charged dickless, atheist Oregon rage-boy during shooting

Forget the 26-year-old zero who murdered 10 innocents at Umpqua Community College on Thursday morning.

The one to remember is 30-year-old Chris Mintz, the student and Army vet who was shot at least five times while charging straight at the gunman in an effort to save others.

Mintz did so on the sixth birthday of his son, Tyrik.

“It’s my son’s birthday, it’s my son’s birthday,” he was heard saying as he lay wounded.
O.K. you got a deal. That dickless rage-boy is consigned to the glory hole and may his putrid, festering corpse rot in an unmarked grave somewhere. Our sincere thanks and admiration to Mr Mintz for his selfless act of courage and we thank God that Mr Mintz will get to see his son's NEXT birthday. Also wishing that he sees his son grow into a fine, honorable man like his father is.

"Where do we get such men?"

Newsflash: Lying Cunt trails Socialist in NH

CNN poll has this festering twat in the tank to the commie grandpa from Vermont by 16 points.


Who the fuck cares. I hope she dies of toxic shock. The MSM is just teasing us with this and what they refer to as The Trump Clown Show. When it gets down to the short strokes, they'll drag her immense white, privileged, felonious ass across the finish line and we'll be saddled her for eight years.

Of course, commie Dems will be thrilled, the GOPe will revel in business as usual, the right wing bloggers will enjoy tons of click-bait posts by virtue of the outrage, Hannity and BOREeilly and Megn (*"The Twat") Kelley and the rest  of FNS will bask in their sky-high ratings from the Dentucreme-and Depends crowd who watches them for their nightly ration of controversy..

..and the fucking Mooz-lem sand niggers will hack off heads and rant about how shitty the U. S. is.

In other words, it's bread and circuses for we proles and life goes on.


Editorial note: you don't like the tone and profanity, then pound sand. I have put up with this bullshit from the folks who control our lives too long to keep a civil tongue. There are plenty of other sites where they treat the flushing of our country into the toilet with kid gloves and click-bait outrage headlines.

The Two Jenners

..o.k., back to slumber land.

Ammo

Regarding today's dismal jobs numbers and the concomitant rise drop in the U-3 employment number, Hor Gas and other places have been all over this like hair on a gorilla. And, except for the fact that this might serve to the push POTUS-Shit-for-Brains-Care fail off until a new news cycle, there is almost no good news.

O.K., O.K., so I blatantly ripped this off. It's my attempt to supply you folks with ammunition for this pajama-wearing, cocoa-sipping, metro-sexual faggots whose mission it is to brainwash us into thinking that Unicorns are shitting Skittles all over this land and all is rosy with Our Beloved Leader -- President Stool Sample -- and his administration regime.

To quote my source over at Hot Gas:

We all know the difference between the U-3 rate and the U-6 rate at this point (I hope), and so we all understand the perverse effect that a dwindling labor force can have on “the unemployment rate.” If you’re unemployed and looking for work, you’re part of the demand for labor that employers/suppliers are trying to meet. You count. if you’re unemployed and so deeply in despair about ever finding a job that you’ve given up looking, you don’t. Get enough people to give up and the labor force just might shrink to the point where marginal job gains overall can produce relatively steep drops in the U-3 rate. Which, of course, explains how America made sub-seven-percent magic last month with that 74,000-job stinkeroo.

We all know that (again, I hope) and we’ve all seen depressing graphs by now like the ones posted at Zero Hedge showing the slow, steady contraction of America’s labor force. The graph below, though, by Sean Davis of the Federalist, visualized the U-3/U-6 contrast in a way I don’t think I’d ever seen before. If you want to grasp just how few real gains have been made since the recession supposedly ended in June 2009, gawk away:



All we need is a few million more people to give up on job-hunting to reach 5% unemployment by the end of O’s term.

That's the bottom line, innit, Droogies? These lying sacks of shit are cooking the books and trying to make us believe we are living in a worker's paradise.

Dog Bites Man


There is a roiling controversy over the manner in which Kim Jong-in's uncle was dispatched from this earth. A couple of posts over at Hot Air are wrestling with the veracity of the uncle becoming Alpo-on-the-hoof for a herd of hungry hounds:

If you’ve been on the Internet at all today, you’ve almost certainly seen the story claiming that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un had his uncle executed last month by stripping him naked and feeding him to 120 hungry dogs. The story was first reported by a minor Hong Kong outlet on Dec. 12, was picked up by a Singaporean newspaper on Dec. 24 and since late Thursday has been sweeping through nearly every corner of the U.S. media. The only problem is that it’s probably – probably – not true.

Whether truth or not, this story becomes -- er -- delicious when juxtaposed to the rumors of President Stool Samples predilection for canine burgers. One of the more waggish observations:


Sorry, I just could not let sleeping dogs lie!

Same Bullshit, Different Year

Certified Enrollment Specialist, Marlene Nesmith, waits on the HealthCare. gov website that reads, “HealthCare.gov has a lot of visitors right now!” as she waits for it to allow her entry into the Affordable Care Act website at a Miami Enrollment Assistance Center on Dec. 20, 2013 in Miami, Fla.
The health care horror stories continue their steady drizzle of grim news; this time it's for reals..

Oregon Mother: I Can’t Afford Obamacare For Myself, 1-Year-Old Son

PORTLAND, Ore. (CBS Seattle/AP) — One Oregon mother says that she is unable to afford health insurance for her and her 18-month-old son because it’s too expensive.

Kate Holly, 33, tells KOIN-TV that she originally championed President Barack Obama’s signature health care law because she thought it would help people in her situation.

“I’ve been a cheerleader for the Affordable Care Act since I heard about it and I assumed that it was designed for people in my situation,” Holly, a freelance yoga instructor, told KOIN. “I was planning on using the Affordable Care Act and I had done the online calculator in advance to make sure I was going to be able to afford it.”

Holly’s husband works for a non-profit organization that pays for his health care, but the couple is unable to afford to have her and their son covered under his plan. And she’s been told their combined income is too much to qualify for a subsidized health care plan under Cover Oregon.

“It wasn’t until I started the process and got an agent that I started hearing from them I wasn’t going to qualify for subsidies because I qualify on my husband’s insurance,” she told KOIN.

Holly is hoping things work out but she doesn’t know if she will have health care for her and her son.

“I guess I’m hoping that I will find out there’s a way around this, but I don’t know yet,” Holly told KOIN.

Obama administration officials said this week that 2.1 million consumers have enrolled through the federal and state-run health insurance exchanges that are a central feature of the Affordable Care Act. Millions more have been enrolled in Medicaid, after the federal law allowed states to expand the health insurance program for the poor.

..Holly sounds like a real dumb shit. Then, there's this real-time horror story:

Doctors Office Spends 2 Hours On Hold With Health Insurer For Patients Surgery Authorization

CHICAGO (AP) — The new year brought relief to some Illinois patients newly insured under the nation’s health care law. Others still weren’t sure whether they were covered, despite their best efforts to navigate the often-balky new system.

The major benefits of President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul took effect Wednesday, the first day of 2014. By Thursday, the first business day of the new insurance system, it became clear that snags in the rollout of the Affordable Care Act still remained.

On the plus side, the law’s protections mean consumers can no longer be denied coverage if they’re in poor health. New limits on how much insured patients must pay for care will mean fewer bankruptcies after catastrophic illnesses. Insurance plans must offer a minimum level of essential benefits, and care such as flu shots and mammograms will be fully covered without cost to patients.

But early problems with the federal HealthCare.gov website led many people to wait until last week to sign up, and insurers are still processing enrollment forms.

Paperwork problems almost delayed suburban Chicago resident Sheri Zajcew’s scheduled surgery Thursday, but Dr. John Venetos decided to operate without a routine go-ahead from the insurance company. That was after Venetos’ office manager spent two hours on hold with the insurer Thursday, trying to get an answer about whether the patient needed prior authorization for the surgery. The office manager finally gave up.

“I’m not a happy camper,” said Nate Zajcew, the patient’s husband. The couple signed up for a Blue Cross Blue Shield bronze plan through the federal HealthCare.gov site on Dec. 16. “I understand it’s just a matter of paperwork and yesterday was a holiday. I can be an SOB, too, at times, but since they’re going on with the procedure, it’s OK.”

Venetos, a Chicago digestive system specialist, described “tremendous uncertainty and anxiety” among patients calling his office recently. Some thought they’d signed up for coverage but hadn’t received insurance cards yet. Others had insurance policies that were canceled and weren’t sure if their coverage had been reinstated after Gov. Pat Quinn decided to allow one-year extensions of canceled plans.

Venetos said he has decided to take a risk and provide care for these patients, at least until there’s less confusion about coverage.

“We feel it’s the right thing to do,” Venetos said. “We may end up stuck holding the bag and not getting paid on these claims.”


Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois, which has the most customers in the state’s individual market, has been adding staff and extending call center hours to keep up with demand. “Every week we’re adding staff to our call centers and we’re also enhancing our call routing features to better serve our customers,” said spokesman Greg Thompson.

In the southern Illinois city of Benton, 61-year-old Nancy Pace spent part of New Year’s Day calling Blue Cross Blue Shield to make certain she and her husband were covered by the silver plan they chose on the troubled federal insurance website. “When you get to where it says ‘Pay for your policy,’ well, that button doesn’t work,” Pace said.

Calling the insurance company worked: Pace paid and got her member number over the phone.

“I made a phone call. I pushed the right button and got a live person,” she said.

Pace, a stroke survivor, said she hasn’t had good insurance since her husband lost his job when the mining machinery plant where he worked closed in 2005. The Affordable Care Act means better health care for her and her husband, she said, but she has doubts.

“My biggest concern is, how long is this going to last? How long can our country bear this expense?” Pace said. “It’s a benefit for us right now. But I don’t see how it can possibly be sustainable. … Am I going to use it? You bet I am. For one thing, it’s a law. I don’t have a choice.”

The significant thing is that these stories are piercing the MSM blackout veil. The above reports, along with others appear either through the big three news organs or on the local "if it bleeds it leads" news programs where much more people pay attention.

While I have no truck with the mirror-fogging, mouth-breathing champions of StupidAssedKneegrowPOTUSCare who made the wrong choice, I feel for their innocent and unsuspecting dependents who bear this burden because of their parents' and guardians' stupidity.

Elections, my friends, have consequences.
