real feminism on the front lines

Money-grubbing capitalist tobacco-pushing gun-shooting racist feminist violently attacks
a poor hoodie who just wants his entitlement free from gov’t involvement.
When he sees the error of his ways, the poor guy just wants to leave in peace;
but this b*tch robs him of his cash, dignity, cred, and masculinity.

So, what have we learned here today, boys and girls?
Sally? Uh huh, m’kay. Don’t lay your revolver on the counter.
Faux? Uh huh, m’kay. Your own gun can be used against you.
Claire? Uh huh, m’kay. Your accomplice will be, at heart, a coward.
Sondra? Uh huh, m’kay. Long sleeves are no substitute for gloves.
Col Jerry? Uh huh, m’kay. No plan survives first contact with the enemy.
Doug? Uhm, ohhhkayyy. Brunettes are the worst, man.

Mooch Madness

President Barack Obama is mentally ill! That’s the bombshell diagnosis of mental health experts including one who says the leader displays classic signs of two severe personality disorders. They also point to a recent video where Obama makes strange faces and acts bizarrely.

(Sorry, if you really wanna RTWT, you’ll have to trudge out to your grocery store and buy it)

Hey, how much less reliable are the tabloids than the Lamestreams, anyway?

My take: Old News. Move On.

Now whyyy would she wanna do thaaat?

We’ve already established that*. Now, we’re just negotiating her price**.

Hillary Rodham Clinton exclusively used a personal email account to conduct government business as secretary of state, State Department officials said, and may have violated federal requirements that officials’ correspondence be retained as part of the agency’s record.

Mrs. Clinton did not have a government email address during her four-year tenure at the State Department. Her aides took no actions to have her personal emails preserved on department servers at the time, as required by the Federal Records Act. [more NYT‽ Yeah, I knowww !]

Somewhere, Lois Lerner is thinking, “Damn! Now why didn’t I think of that?”
* Yeah, can’t wait for her to say, “Whaddaya think I am?
** For our friends who just got off the turnip boat, here’s why

slow-weekend schticks

And just to show that I’m not stuck on Obamaschtick,
thought I’d try out a new schtick

Of course, there iiis a danger of punch-line overdo

(What? Nah, just me entertainin’ myself on a rainy day again.)

Putin reverts to type

Nothing to see here. Move along. Move along.

Boris Nemtsov, a charismatic Russian opposition leader and sharp critic of President Vladimir Putin, was gunned down Saturday near the Kremlin, just a day before* a planned protest against the government.

The death of Nemtsov, a 55-year-old former deputy prime minister, ignited a fury among opposition figures who assailed the Kremlin for creating an atmosphere of intolerance of any dissent and called the killing an assassination. Putin quickly offered his condolences and called the murder a provocation.

Nemtsov was working on a report presenting evidence that he believed proved Russia’s direct involvement in the separatist rebellion that erupted in eastern Ukraine last year. Ukraine and the West accuse Russia of backing the rebels with troops and sophisticated weapons. Moscow denies the accusations.

Putin ordered Russia’s top law enforcement chiefs to personally oversee** the probe of Nemtsov’s killing. [more]

Yeah, we can see through this transparency from here, comrade.
The findings will be, “Worst case of suicide we’ve ever seen.”

Stalin’s purges
Night of the Long Knives
* Previously on KisP 1 and Previously on KisP 2
** You know, like having Eric Holder personally oversee any investigation into Obama

Robert Davi makes a powerful point

[T]his speech* explains what we are up against. Unless we demand Congress define it, immediately, irrespective of what the Joker of State and all those in the administration that are on the wrong side of history are trying to snow the public with!

The denial they all have is like the behavior of someone in active addiction who denies they have a substance abuse problem. The deeper insidiousness of their denial is the harm it is doing. …

Why is this happening? I will tell you why. Right now, the leadership of United States does not stand for anything. The West, by not defining with clarity what the ideological threat is facing us, shows weakness, a lack of moral commitment to the truth and what I call the “nuanced thinking of the impotent intellectual.” [story]

For two decades, after the horror of WWI and during the horror of the Stalinists’ aggressions, America had the moral clarity and commitment to the truth, even to the point of being willing to trade horror for horror, if need be. Within a decade of that, however, the moral clarity and commitment of Liberalism evaporated almost completely. When the Soviets collapsed two decades after that, the Left no longer needed to even pretended to believe in any kind of American virtues. It was called the end of history, and the orgies began in earnest. Denial, dissimulation, and moral cowardice became the new virtues. The fog of words became the new truth. Now, with the rise of this new horror, we are unprepared to prevail. Hell, for all I know, we may even be unwilling to prevail. After all, we don’t even seem to know who we are anymore.

Was this the point/goal of Progressivism?

“i need feminism because women are more important than men”

Jihad Johnny – revealed!

Serial Beheader

“Jihadi John” … is Mohammed Emwazi, a Briton from a well-to-do family who grew up in West London and graduated from [University of Westminster] with a degree in computer programming.

…Kuwaiti-born … in his mid-20s

so…. wait. I thot it was Poverty™ that was…

the root causes of this – what makes these 17-year-old kids pick up an AK-47 instead of trying to start a business?

Maybe we need some Trained Interventionist™ to create a Counter-Narrative™?

Or, maybe, we could take into account Human Nature for what it is and has been for centuries?

Here’s a quote of a book review by a mind far better than mine: I’ve scraped off the identifiers so as not to muddy the point.

…Nearly all western thought …, certainly all “progressive” thought, has assumed tacitly that human beings desire nothing beyond ease, security and avoidance of pain. In such a view of life there is no room, for instance, for patriotism and the military virtues. The Socialist who finds his children playing with soldiers is usually upset, but he is never able to think of a substitute for the tin soldiers; tin pacifists somehow won’t do. [The author], because in his own joyless mind he feels it with exceptional strength, knows that human beings don’t only want comfort, safety, short working-hours, hygiene, birth-control and, in general, common sense; they also, at least intermittently, want struggle and self-sacrifice, not to mention drums, flags and loyalty-parades.

…Whereas Socialism, and even capitalism in a more grudging way, have said to people “I offer you a good time,” [the author] has said to them “I offer you struggle, danger and death,” and as a result a whole nation flings itself at his feet.

Humans have an inherent, basic need to struggle and strive. Without it, they would have failed to survive milennia ago. Just because we have achieved a way to feed, clothe and amuse a great proportion of the population with relatively little struggle does not mean we can all become fat ’n’ happy sitting on our couches and satisfying our needs by watching Survivor. We may be fat but we lack satisfaction.

It’s not the corn syrup in processed foods that is Making America Fat; it is the lack of a struggle to achieve _____________. …whatever that _____________ may be.

It is not Poverty™ that fuels Gang Warfare in the inner cities; it is a lack of focused, Civilized Struggle appropriate to the singular energy of young males. And everyone else. Much as it is with Young Males — and Young Females — and everyone else — who join the unholy “Holy Jihad”.

Granted, many young males have found other, more Civilized ways to satisfy their need for struggle while others become limp metrosexuals lacking in vitality and fierceness yet following Fashion with vigor, others take their fierceness into Activism and, with the enthusiasm and vigor of 13 year-old guurlz, tearing down the Dirtybad/Mean Guurlz on Social Media. Others become invigorated with commercial sports and even riot — create artificial, temporary War — after wins or losses.

It’s extremely difficult to subvert, much less stifle the Human need for Struggle.

Historically, the singular energy of Young Males has been directed by their own Cultures/Civilizations toward conquering the Natural World in order to feed the family/tribe. Or to conquering the ‘barbarians’, to keep from being conquered, and to gain land and other resources — to feed the tribe/society.

The West was an ideal outlet for the Need for Struggle. Men like Carson and Bridger and Williams were extraordinary but the shopkeepers and freighters and town builders — the ‘average people’ — who came after them faced far more dangers than today’s ‘average people’ could withstand. Or than they think they could withstand. Or than they have been led to believe they could withstand…

[Aside: when a Culture gets to the level of promoting “awareness” of crap like “micro-aggressions” as something to Struggle against, we’ve truly lost the plot.]

But struggle engenders self-reliance. It feeds innovation and creativity. And it demonstrates to regular people that they do not need Other People [oft called “The Govt” which term seems to invoke some sort of magic] to make them safe and fight their battles for them.

Therefore they become no longer useful to that element of Humanity [also a constant] who wishes to treat them as the ant treats the aphid. In fact, they become actively hostile to the idea that the work of their own hands and brains ”belongs” to Others.

But, back to the point of why the jihaddis don’t “start a business” instead of picking up an AK-47 — or a scimitar. The ancient and primitive Human need for Struggle.

It can be Civilized into starting a business and many other forms, but… It must still carry the risks, the dangers, and the potential of Great Rewards to satisfy the same needs that were addressed by facing an armed enemy or an angry grizzly, by counting coup on a live Enemy and stealing his horses, by traveling across uncharted wilderness and creating a Home… That is the Evolutionary Question we now face.

taxpayer discretion

M’kay, Obama legitimizes ignoring the law as an act of prosecutorial discretion.
Hmmm, let’s see, now. What might be the ramifications of that?

You may benefit from the president’s failure to enforce the law today, but I’ll make you this promise: There will come a day where you will cry out for the enforcement of the law. There will come a day when you long for the law to be the foundation of this republic.” — Trey Gowdy

That day is April 15th.

[T]his year, as many as 6 million taxpayers will learn that they now owe a “Shared Responsibility Payment” because they didn’t have health insurance last year.

The mandate and the tax penalty behind it are core elements of the health law, but it’s becoming increasingly apparent that they are relatively toothless. There are dozens of exemptions available, some of which require no paperwork. It can be far less complicated to avoid the ObamaCare tax penalty than pay it. And the already overworked Internal Revenue Service has little authority to collect any unpaid penalty taxes due. This has led industry analyst Robert Laszewski to ask “is there really an individual mandate?”
Critics and opponents agree that without the individual mandate, ObamaCare has little chance of success.

The tax penalty, in turn, is key to making the mandate work.
But it’s anyone’s guess as to whether the penalty will have much impact.

Even if the IRS does catch “noncompliance,” there’s little it can do about it.

[T]hat those who don’t pay the ObamaCare penalty are “not subject to criminal or civil penalties.

And so, with a weak and permeable individual mandate, and lax enforcement of the tax penalty, ObamaCare could easily contain the seeds of its own destruction.
[story, including descriptions of how to just blow-off the tax penalty]

IOW, sovereign citizens can just opt to use taxpayer discretion.
You know, like dumpin’ tea into Boston Harbor to avoid the friggin’ tea tax.

Looks like they’re passing it so we can find out what’s in it…

so, what’s in it?

The last-minute revisions, however, demonstrate the growing influence of Google, which has become a major lobbying presence in Washington.

Anybody able to shed light on this thing? What Problem are they aiming to Fix?

Liberal philanthropist [hahahahahahahahaaaa] George Soros and the Ford Foundation have lavished groups supporting the administration’s “net neutrality” agenda, donating $196 million and landing proponents on the White House staff, according to a new report.

That doesn’t look particularly ….neutral
