“Knock knock.”
“Who’s there?”
“ISIL.”
“ISIL who?”
“ISIL have no idea what to do about this $#!+.”
– @BarackObama to WH Press Corps, 9/10/14

Some Weird Emailer

The entire speech was based on lies*

I’m not gonna surgically parse the President’s speech or rend my garments and wail.

Let’s leave that to the experts/pundits/sycophants/apologists/racists and to those that think it will make a difference and to those who think anybody’ll read it.

No, I’ll limit my comments to three adjacent points within the speech:

• “…ISIL is not ‘Islamic.’ And the vast majority of ISIL’s victims have been Muslim.”
Then where are the fatwas against this heresy?
Not sure what he thinks the initials “IS” in “ISIL” stand for.

• “No religion condones the killing of innocents.
Depends on what their definition of “innocents” is.

• “…ISIL is certainly not a state.
Therefore, no declaration of war or Congressional approval is necessary.
Again, not sure what he thinks the initials “IS” in “ISIL” stand for.
Depends on what the meaning of “state” IS.

Just ran across this.
(What? Yeah, I posted before seeing it. It’s not like I’ve ever had a unique thought.)

Gone is the halo. Enter the horns.
You know … optics.

Will Obama calling ISIL non-Islamic be used by them as an excuse to attack us?
You know … like a video.

Okay, if ISIL/ISIS/IS are un-Islamic, then let’s call ‘em USIL/USIS/US.
Oh, wait …

turnin’ over anti-Semite rocks

Cruz goes into the lion’s den wretched hive*.
I give ‘im a *clank* for this one.

“I’ve certainly encountered audiences that disagreed with a particular point of view. But this virulent display of hatred and bigotry was remarkable, and considerably different from anything I’ve previously encountered,” Cruz said, just a few hours after his pro-Israel speech to the In Defense of Christians conference was drowned out by shouts and jeers from the audience.

The senator was booed off stage at the conference, which is aimed at raising awareness for the persecution of Middle Eastern Christians, after saying that Christians “have no greater ally than Israel” and calling on the audience to support the Jewish state.

“The division and anti-Semitism expressed tonight by some of the crowd is not reflective of the teachings of Christ, and is in fact directly contrary to the tenets of Christianity,” Cruz said. [Well, not anymore, no.]


~ vid ~

“I am saddened to see that some here, not everyone, but some here, are so consumed with hate,” said Cruz, before he was interrupted with shouts of “all of us!” from the audience.

If you will not stand with Israel and the Jews, then I will not stand with you,” said Cruz …. [lots more]

IOW: Screw you guys!

“Whenever we can, we follow the law,” IRS Commissioner John Koskinen told the House Ways and Means subcommittee on health on Wednesday.

Congress: teats on a boar.

[Jack Kingston, the Republican Congressman from Georgia]
A lot of people would like to stay on the sideline and say, ‘Just bomb the place and tell us about it later.’ It’s an election year. A lot of Democrats don’t know how it would play in their party, and Republicans don’t want to change anything. We like the path we’re on now. We can denounce it if it goes bad, and praise it if it goes well and ask what took him so long.

So what will Him$elf say tonite?

document dumping

A senior communications aide to Attorney General Eric Holder seemingly called House oversight committee chairman Darrell Issa’s staff by accident and asked for their help spinning new revelations about the IRS scandal, Issa said in a September 8 letter to Holder.

The aide, Brian Fallon, is a former senior aide to Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and a well-known personality on Capitol Hill. The letter describes Fallon as “audibly shaken” when he realizes his request to leak documents to help get ahead of news stories about them was mistakenly made to the very office he was seeking to undermine. Issa believes the call was intended to be made to Democratic Rep. Elijah Cumming’s staff, the ranking member on the oversight panel, the letter said.

According to the letter, Fallon – who is not named in the letter but confirmed he made the call – asked if the aides could release the IRS scandal documents to “selected reporters” to give Fallon an “opportunity to comment publicly on it.”…

The Tyranny Amendment

48 Gimmedat Senators have sponsored a proposed Amendment to the Constitution, allowing Congress and the States to regulate campaign expenditures.

That the following article is proposed as an amendment to the Constitution of the United States, which shall be valid to all intents and purposes as part of the Constitution when ratified by the legislatures of three-fourths of the several States:

“Article–

Section 1. To advance democratic self-government and political equality, and to protect the integrity of government and the electoral process…

George Orwell, please pick up the Red Courtesy Phone.

Congress and the States may regulate and set reasonable limits on the raising and spending of money by candidates and others to influence elections.

Whew! I’m so relieved they won’t be allowed to regulate and set unreasonable limits.

Section 2. Congress and the States shall have power to implement and enforce this article by appropriate legislation, and may distinguish between natural persons and corporations or other artificial entities created by law, including by prohibiting such entities from spending money to influence elections.

And just what might these “other artificial entities” be?

Could it be… any political organization opposed to the Regime? ~DING!~

Could it be… SEIU, Planned Parenthood, NOW, OFA, ThinkProgress, Open Society? ~BZZZZZT!~

Section 3. Nothing in this article shall be construed to grant Congress or the States the power to abridge the freedom of the press.

The White House and the FCC already have that one covered.
