Groper Joe Biden; Lucy Flores is not alone.

Vanity FairJoe Biden Faces an Overdue #MeToo Question.
Lucy Flores:

"I felt him get closer to me from behind. He leaned further in and inhaled my hair. I was mortified. I thought to myself, 'I didn’t wash my hair today and the vice-president of the United States is smelling it. And also, what in the actual fuck? Why is the vice-president of the United States smelling my hair?'  He proceeded to plant a big slow kiss on the back of my head."

Amanda Terkel, writing in Huffington Post, described another incident. “The teenage daughter of Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.), for example, visibly cringed and pulled away when Biden whispered in her ear and kissed her on the head.”

Time: "Biden being Biden" should not be tolerated.
One of the more awkward moments from the Joe Biden inappropriate behavior reel is his whispering, grabbing, and ultimately trying to kiss Delaware Senator Chris Coon’ daughter Maggie. She is 13.
NBC’s Capitol Hill Correspondent Kelly O’Donnell joshed Biden was “multi-tasking” when he had his arm wrapped around a teenager while swearing in her mother, Senator Joni Ernst. Biden also told the teen “I hope mom has a big fence around your house.” Today co-host Matt Lauer wise-cracked that this was Biden’s way of “welcoming” the families of the new Senate class. Even PBS found “Biden being Biden” just so adorable.
...As adorable as a pedophile.

BBC Director General whines over label "mainstream" and why Teh News not trusted.

No one wants to play in The Empty Sandbox belonging to the whiney-assed kid.

RT: BBC director whines over label "mainstream".
A speech given by the head of the BBC pouting over the "abusive" term "mainstream media" misses the point entirely, media analyst Lionel told RT.
Rather than complain about "people of all political persuasions" pointing out the system's flaws, he said, BBC director general Tony Hall and others like him would do well to look in the mirror to understand how "traditional journalism" came to be seen as "part of the problem rather than the solution."

National Day Calendar: National Vietnam War Veterans Day

From The Wall USA:
"If you are able, save for them a place inside of you and save one backward glance when you are leaving for the places they can no longer go.

     Be not ashamed to say you loved them, though you may or may not have always. Take what they have taught you with their dying and keep it with your own.

     And in that time when men decide and feel safe to call the war insane, take one moment to embrace those gentle heroes you left behind."

A large-scale analysis of global positioning data has discovered widespread Russian spoofing over the past three years of the global navigation satellite system (GNSS) used by ships and autonomous vehicle systems to find their positions and safely chart courses, according to a new report.

The report — published by the Center for Advanced Defense (C4ADS), a nonprofit intelligence firm focused on worldwide security issues — found that at least 9,883 instances of spoofing occurred near sensitive areas in Russia and Crimea and during times when high-ranking officials, such as President Vladamir Putin, were present.

Why does anyone believe "outrage" from Chicago DEM Mayor Rahm Emanuel and PD Superintendent Eddie Johnson?

I stopped listening to talk radio over ten years ago. The main reason being that no matter which Conservative talker was talking, it was the same stuff, every day, restated and regurgitated slightly different every day. Day after day after day.

I tuned in to talk radio yesterday and today, wanting to hear reactions to the Mueller Report and the Jussie Smollett story.

Not going to reference any names, but you can guess the two, main Conservative talkers I'm referring to.

Yesterday, both hosts expressed their anger over the Mueller Report, talking at great length over how much time and money was wasted by the Mueller investigation. Well, both of you gentlemen are somewhat intelligent, you knew this was coming. Why are you angry? Both hosts claim to have such keen insight into how the Liberal Mind works, yet, both expressed varying degrees of pissed-off-ed-ness.

Yesterday, one of the hosts was all bent out of shape saying there is no reason to "thank Mueller" for his report's conclusion of no Russian-Trump collusion. Who is thanking Mueller? I haven't read a single site, a single blog or any writer anywhere who is "thanking Mueller".

Today, these same talkers gave ample time in discussing that "even Rahm Emanuel and PD Superintendent Eddie Johnson are upset" over the charges dropped against Jussie Smollett.

You guys are joking, right? Or did you forget that the Smollett hoax happened in Chicago, the Liberal Grift Capital of the World?

Chicago Mayor and lifelong Liberal operative Rahm Emanual "lashes out" at the prosecutors for dropping charges against Jussie Smollett. These two conservative radio takers believe Rahm is really upset over this?

We're asked to believe that Liberal Godfather Emanuel was not aware of what would happen today regarding Smollett? Are you kidding me?

Here's what happened. Emanuel, and to a lesser degree PD Superintendent Johnson, gave performances worthy of Best Supporting Actors in a Hate Attack Hoax.

If you really believe that Rahm is, or was, surprised and angered by the charges against Smollett being dropped, you have played right into the hand of the Liberal Narrative. Chicago PD's Mr. Johnson...of course he had to be in step with The Rahm Narrative for his job and to play his role in protecting the illusion that Chicago law enforcement holds any degree of legitimacy.

You've been Pwned by The Liberal Narrative and fell for it hook, line and sinker.

And the Oscar goes to, Rahm Emanuel, for best acting in feigning outrage over a hoax. And Mr. Johnson, he did his best in a supporting role.

Seriously, you believe this guy?

All charges against Jussie Smollett dropped.

In today's WTF Moment, Chicago Tribune: Cook County drops all charges against Jussie Smollett.
In a stunning move, Cook County prosecutors on Tuesday dropped all charges against "Empire" actor Jussie Smollett on disorderly conduct charges for allegedly staging a phony attack and claiming he was the victim of a hate crime.

“We believe this outcome is a just disposition and appropriate resolution to this case,” a prosecutor said in court in announcing the dismissal of all 16 counts.
“Jussie is relieved to have this situation behind him and is very much looking forward to getting back to focusing on his family, friends and career," [said Judge Steven Watkins].

Because Matthew Yglesias and Damon Linker are so prescient and smarter than the rest of us.

On rare occasions I link to a LiberTard site or writer. Usually it's to mock them. It's especially fun linking to them when their past words of wisdom prove to be so...pathetically partisan and so dreadfully wrong.

VOX: Underrated and overrated 2020 Dem presidential candidates (from September 14, 2018 by Matthew Yglesias and others).

BIG SWING and a MISS by Mr. Yglegiggleasissyus. Matt continues, from the above link: 
Avenatti, by contrast, has:

    Publicly said he’s exploring a run for president.
    Formed a PAC to donate to Democratic candidates in 2018, a common first move of presidential contenders.
    Visited Iowa in August for the Democratic “Wing Ding dinner” fundraiser, alongside declared presidential candidates Rep. John Delaney (D-MD) and entrepreneur Andrew Yang.
    Visited New Hampshire that month for a Democratic picnic, where the state party chair enthusiastically introduced him.
    Also visited Florida and Ohio and Pennsylvania, where he met with Democratic officials and tried to schmooze Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH), another potential contender who called Avenatti a “phenomenal guy.”
    Decided to put his campaign headquarters in St. Louis to make it easier for him to flip Missouri blue.
    Released a platform document laying out an agenda he’d run on.

He is really, truly, honest-to-God running for president. And I think he could win.
Matt, Matt, Matt...of which are you more proud: your narrow biased political view or your ability in arrogantly bestowing admirable and altruistic accolades on people who fool no one other than you?

Ooooooooooooh, "and I think he could win." [Insert audio of prepubescent girls'-sleepover squealing, both hands raised and waving around like...well, like litle girls do.]

NY PostAvenatti can't find lawyers to represent him on extortion charges
Oh, teh Schadenfreude, so delicious, so satisfying.

My same question posed to Matt (bias and/or arrogancy) applies to Damon Linker at The Week, writing on September 1, 2016: Donald Trump is poised to lose in the biggest landslide in modern American history:
Trump isn't merely going to lose. He's going to lose in the biggest popular vote landslide in modern presidential history.
Trump may well end up being the most unpopular candidate from a major party since before the New Deal.
Trump, by contrast, is going to sink.
The most credulous members of the Trump fan club will show up to cast ballots for him no matter what he says and does. But the rest? An awful lot of them are likely to stay home out of simple self-respect. Precisely how many do so is what will make the difference between a loss and a historic wipeout.
How'd that landslide/"wipeout" end up, Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaamon?

Hey guys, what's it like - how does it taste - eating words of ass?

Amazing...The craniotomy sutures, tension wire and screws can't be seen.

Last week I heard a short audio clip of this on Glenn Beck's program. I wasn't sure what Beck was discussing or what the audio clip represented. Earlier today, I found the video clip at @RealJamesWoods Twitter.

Note the deranged, zombie-like look in eyes of the woman on the left (after you stop staring at her tits...)

I hope these two took their own advice and did not procreate. "That's true...that's so true." 

In an unconfirmed news report:  Two unidentified brains in jars mysteriously appeared out of nowhere on a shelf in a science lab. Authorities advise they are not interested in seeking the previous owners and there is no need for the public to be alarmed or concerned. "That's true...that's so true."

Melting Greenland glacier is growning again.

TVNZ: Once melting glacier is now growing.
A major Greenland glacier that was one of the fastest shrinking ice and snow masses on Earth is growing again, a new NASA study finds.

The Jakobshavn glacier around 2012 was retreating about 3 kilometres and thinning nearly 40 metres annually.

But it started growing again at about the same rate in the past two years, according to a study in  Nature Geoscience. Study authors and outside scientists think this is temporary.
Temporary. As in it might freeze and grow for a while, and then some time later melt, and then re-freeze again? As in, climate changes? As in, the temperature and weather tomorrow will not be exactly the same as today or as yesterday? Weather fluctuates? No, it can't be. 

The glacier is not unlike the ice cubes in my rums and cokes. The cubes melt...for a while...and then get replenished. Science is amazing. Go figure.

That was a lovely Lamborghini you had.

The driver of the Huracan Performante was revving the engine before he took off speeding down the road – the vehicle can reach speeds of 321km/h.
“Visibility was good but the road was dusty — that might be why he lost control. It’s fortunate no one was hurt.

“I can’t imagine them being able to repair the car.” Another witness said the driver was visibly shaken from the crash.

I’m pretty sure he was crying when he got out. It was easily a write-off.”
Go and buy another Huracan, and avoid showboating. Idiot.

So - a Happy Monday, for the first, and likely only, time...

The Vault of Horror: "High Anxiety", Mel Brooks' Hitchcock Spoof:
But my personal favorite spoof scene has always been the death of Dr. Wentworth, played by Dick Van Patten. A takeoff on a scene from Hitch's last film, Family Plot--released the year before--it features Van Patten struggling to escape from a car while the world's most annoying rock song blares over the car stereo, until his eardrums explode. This ludicrous scene always cracks me up the most, and best of all, Brooks actually composed the rock song! ("If you love me baby, tell me LOUD! LOUD!")

Mel Brooks: "[Van Patten] had a talent for that rarest of gifts—satire."

Happy Monday.

White People Caused Cyclone Idai ?????

Pindula News: White People Caused Cyclone Idai- BLF.
Black First Land First (BLF) said in a statement on Friday that Tropical Cyclone Idai  is not a natural disaster but a direct consequence of the white, Western system of ecological assault for profits.

BLF called on the African Union (AU) to demand reparations and relief from the European Union (EU) and the US for Cyclone Idai. Part of the statement reads:

    Those who pollute and destroy our ecosystems must pay ecological reparations to those who suffer as a consequence of their irresponsible actions. It’s no longer speculation – even the white man’s own science corroborates what we blacks know: Africa is paying a heavy price for the actions of the white world. The West pollutes and the West must pay. Part of driving their conspiracy of recolonisation [sic] is to profit from disasters. The West has no incentive to stop destroying our planet. The West knows only one value and that is to make profits. If the West is not stopped soon, then we should prepare for the extinction of our species.

"Africa is tired of carrying the burden of the destructive behaviour of the global white system of power and consumption," the statement read.

On Friday, BBC reported that rescue workers were continuing the search for survivors of Cyclone Idai, which destroyed towns and villages in its path.

"Hundreds of people have been killed and hundreds of thousands more have been affected by what the UN says could be 'one of the worst weather-related disasters ever to hit the southern hemisphere'," its report stated.

Bernie Sanders Wants to Confiscate our guns.

And other knee-jerk reactions to the New Zealand mosque shooting because knee-jerk reactions are always the wisest reaction:

TownhallBernie Sanders "more gun laws; go after the NRA."
[Following New Zealand's ban on all military-style semi-automatic weapons] Democrat presidential candidate and socialist Bernie Sanders endorsed the move right away and said it needs to happen in the United States. He wants to strip Americans of their Second Amendment rights overnight.
The IndependentSanders, "This is what real action looks like."
“This is what real action to stop gun violence looks like,” [said Sanders]  on Twitter. “We must follow New Zealand’s lead, take on the NRA and ban the sale and distribution of assault weapons in the United States.”
Conservative ReviewNZ's knee-jerk gun ban is EXACTLY why we have the Second Amendment.
That’s just one thing that’s so great about having a Constitution that’s hard to change by design and has language specifically protecting the right to keep and bear arms. Every human being is born with the intrinsic right to defend themselves. Period. Our Founders knew this and wisely put a backstop in place that keeps reactionary impulses from trampling over that right.
Washington Examiner: Democrat's celebrating New Zealand gun ban exposes the Left's authoritarian impulses.
Democrats cheered the actions of the government of New Zealand. Even as liberals often insist that nobody is talking about taking away guns, many applauded the decision of a government to quickly confiscate weapons from law-abiding citizens without any debate or legal arguments.
BreitbartBernie Sanders calls for NZ style gun ban in U.S. 
...the DOJ released a study showing handguns are the weapons of choice for criminals. The study looked at roughly 300,000 federal and state inmates, finding that 18 percent of them used handguns in the commission of their crimes while 1.4 percent used rifles of any kind. The percentage of “assault weapons” used would have necessarily been even lower than 1.4.

But Sanders and other Democrats want to ban commonly-owned semiautomatic rifles under the guise of keeping us safe.
The Guardian via MSN by Lois Beckett:  25 years of inaction in U.S. gun laws. (Lois be smokin' some potent nugs):
In the US, where conservative politicians have blocked even moderate gun control for 25 years, New Zealand’s swift action was greeted as a powerful inspiration – and a reminder of how far behind the country is.

[ISP Vodafone] decision to block access to websites was controversial as they acted to censor content without instruction from either the Australian Communications and Media Authority or the eSafety Commissioner, and most smaller service providers have decided to keep access open," The Australian Financial Review wrote.

C|Net: Facial recognition may ban you in stores you've never been in.
...with facial recognition, getting caught in one store could mean a digital record of your face is shared across the country. Stores are already using the technology for security purposes and can share that data -- meaning that if one store considers you a threat, every business in that network could come to the same conclusion.
Privacy advocates fear that regulations can't keep up with the technology -- found everywhere from your phone to selfie stations -- leading to devastating consequences.

"Unless we really rein in this technology, there's a risk that what we enjoy every day -- the ability to walk around anonymous, without fearing that you're being tracked and identified -- could be a thing of the past," said Neema Singh Guliani, the American Civil Liberties Union's senior legislative counsel.

Scientific research demonstrates that freestyle rap might boost your brain’s creative power, too, and when it does, it can free you from boredom and stagnation and offer you a reprieve from the monotony of everyday tasks.
Well, if science says so...

"Fuck why, fish fry, black eye, no cry, bye-bye, oh my super-high. More pie, necktie, oh why-why try, Jai Alai no Lie, drinking Rye in the sky."

Yeah, it works. Add another ritual to the morning routine...

Fortune: Firefox 66 Is a Gift For Anyone Who Hates Autoplay Videos.
The latest version of Firefox can detect when a video is playing with audio, and automatically mute it. Videos that play on mute will be allowed to continue to run. If someone wants to watch a video, along with listening to the audio, they can click the play button. Firefox also offers the option to add certain websites to a list of exceptions, or to turn blocking off if they really enjoy having videos suddenly play while they’re busy at work.

The new block autoplay feature will be gradually rolling out to users, according to the Firefox 66 release notes.
Killing auto-play videos has to be one of the top three best Tech innovations ever.

But Can You Find The Bears?

Original, unedited screen shot; reformatted only for size: 

George Conway HaZ Twinkies?

 George Conway sees dead people conceals Twinkies in his jowls.

NY Post: George Conway continues unrestrained hissy fit over President Donald Trump.
The online feud between President Trump and the spouse of top White House aide Kellyanne Conway continued into a second day Wednesday, with Trump calling George Conway the “husband from hell” and Conway calling him “nuts.
I can't help wondering if this whole Trump-Conway "feud" is planned and scripted. What a great way to distract the MSM.

Tossing a lasso around children would be deemed inappropriate today. And offensive to Millennials.

John Bercow: "Orrrrdddeeeerrrrr!"

I didn't know his name on one of the previous posts on Brexit and couldn't find the specific post looking through my tags. Way too much work.

Anyway, now I know; he's John Bercow, UK Parliament Speaker.

As I wrote in the post that I couldn't find, this guy gotta be a Monty Python fan. And I could listen to him all day long.

Our elected Libs need a lecture from Mr. Bercow on manners.

Tim Walz: "I'm done!" Whines about not getting gas tax increase.

FOX 9 News: Walz pitches gas tax increase from location he calls a, "dangerous railroad crossing.'
Gov. Tim Walz says he’s fed up with Senate Republicans’ blockade of his proposed 20-cent per gallon gas tax increase, so he’s taking the argument to their districts.
...the Democratic governor gazed into a giant pothole on Highway 47 in Anoka – a construction flagger held up traffic so he could do it – and said the real problem on that road was one of Minnesota’s most dangerous railroad crossings.
..."I am done trying to watch somebody jam an ideological peg into what is truly a practical situation that needs to be solved,” Walz said during a news conference in Anoka.
MN Gov: Timmy Walz

Well over a billion dollars, and then some, was allocated in 2018 for existing, ongoing and new road and transportation projects.

I don't know where to begin.

*  What the hell was going on, then, for the past eight years under previous DEM Gov. Richie Rich? He was all "we need to fix our roads" and to repeat, he just finished two, four-year terms. Between having back surgeries, pretending to be an "average guy" who enjoys fishing and passing out "fainting" during a State of the State Address. Dayton Rich didn't get his way with upping the gas tax. He put it behind him and moved on. Walz needs to do the same.

"...the Democratic governor gazed into a giant pothole."  I'm attempting to exercise some diplomacy here, but WTF? Walz's Wiki bio says he was born in Nebraska. Married in 1994. Didn't see anything about WHEN he moved to Minnesota. But he's never seen a fucking POT HOLE before? He allegedly lives here, represented Minnesota in the U.S. Congress, claims he's familiar with the Midwest, and he's never seen a pot hole? Nebraska, what did Minnesota do to you that you inflict this guy on us?

I already miss Richie Rich. Walz has been in office for about three months and he's already been in front of a camera more than eight years of Richie. Listening to Rich, on camera or speaking publicly, was at least enjoyable because you didn't really have any idea what he was talking about or saying. That's because he didn't know either. And his slurring manner of speech and deer-in-the-headlights look is always entertaining. Walz? He whines like a little bitch Lib. He told everyone, as a candidate, he'd push for increasing the gas tax. I'll give him a passing grade on honesty on this one item.

MSN: Walz in love with gas tax increase.
Senate Republicans have dismissed the notion of raising the gas tax as a non-starter, especially with a $1.5 billion surplus.
Yeah, MN Repubs, please DON'T FOLD ON THIS! Keep your spines in place and deny Walz his gas tax increase and his other grandiose plans he desires at the expense of taxpayers.

The Vulgar Curmudgeon: He never saw it coming(?)

Scratching To Escape: Almost forgotten.

By Other Means: Where is Francis?

Alan Krueger; add another name to the Arkancide list.

Trib Live: Alan Krueger, former White House economist commits suicide.
He died by suicide over the weekend, according to a statement released Monday by his family. The family did not provide additional information.
He served for one year under President Bill Clinton as the Labor Department’s chief economist, and he was an assistant treasury secretary from 2009 to 2010 during President Barack Obama’s administration. In the wake of the global financial crisis, he tried to boost the economy through stimulus measures such as a credit fund for small businesses and the “cash for clunkers” program, which offered rebates for new-car buyers.
Man, that Cash for Clunkers served as an economic bonanza. We are all so much better from it. 

The Clinton Dead List.

Another list of dead Clinton associates.

The Obama Deadpool list, while puny compared to the Clinton list, still is impressive.

More Obama Deadpool here.

New Zealand gun owners voluntarily turning in their firearms. Andrew Cuomo flashes "White Nationalist" hand gesture.

Newsweek: New Zealand gun owners turn in their rifles; "We don't need these."
...gun owners have been turning up at local police stations seeking to have their own semiautomatic rifles—the weapon believed to have been used in the shootings—destroyed.
"Until today, I was one of the New Zealanders who owned a semiautomatic rifle," one gun owner, farmer John Hart, wrote on Twitter. "On the farm they are a useful tool in some circumstances, but my convenience doesn't outweigh the risk of misuse.

"We don't need these in our country," he added[.]
Well...these rifles aren't misused unless the intention to misuse and abuse them exists. The intention to misuse/abuse anything exists only within the person using them.

NY PostNew Zealand ‘shooter’ flashes ‘white power’ symbol in court.
[Suspect Brenton Tarrant, 28] who was handcuffed and clad in a white prison jumpsuit, made an “OK” hand gesture during his appearance — a symbol used by white nationalists and racist internet trolls[.]

This hand gesture then begs the question, is NY DEM Governor Andrew Cuomo a "White Nationalist" or a racist internet troll? Or both?
