Need a Little Help Here… Are the Russians Coming?

While it’s true, I’ve been laying low watching the fire overhead, I am struck by this latest explosion of stupidity.

So, I’m going to untie my fingers.

First I will say, I hate me some Russians. Actually I hate me some Socialists which continues to include Russians.  This is for reasons nobody cares about but I’ve made clear over the years.

That being said, WTF?
Trump goes over to pay a visit to Vlad and our local socialists, our Socialist press and the Never Trump useful idiots go ape sh*t.

The Dems have no option but to continue their attempt to connect Trump with Russian meddling. Why, because they have nothing but good news to get mad about.  AND… they are being forced to be honest about who they are.  Both of the above are not good for their future.  (Did the Russians meddle in the election process? Of course they did. And they will again… just as the Chinese do, the North Koreans do, the Iranians wish they could… etc. etc. Hey dummy, here’s another tidbit, we do it too. And we will continue to do it. What do you think all that money for “Clandestine” services is used for? For you current college students, see if you can find a dictionary and look up ‘clandestine’. ) It is enjoyable however to watch Democrats hate on some Russians.  It’s like a Domestic Abuse episode of Jerry Springer where the wife is beating the crap out of the husband for everyone to see.  It’s funny because it’s purely theater and they don’t really mean it… but they think it makes for good ratings.  (And in the end the wife goes back to the husband.)

The Press is hell-bent on anyone other than Trump heavily flavored by their bizarre love affair of all things Socialist. So they are working diligently to keep the words “Trump” and “Russia” appearing together in every sentence they utter. It’s become boring.  (Has anyone heard anything about Venuzuela lately?  With any frequency?)

The Never Trumpers are desperate to get their power back and reclaim their rightful place in history as the Slave Party to the Democratic Socialists.  Can I get you a Starbucks?

Even the Criticism I’m hearing from those I listen to attentively is odd.

“Trump threw the CIA under the bus!”

So?

Folks, since when does the President of the United States suffer an obligation to stand behind everything his intelligence services say? Yes… I get it. Better to say nothing at all, but that was not allowed to happen by the Leftist Press… and it never will be allowed to happen when it comes to any Political Leader standing in the way of the the the Press’ Socialist Utopia.  Can you blame them?  What could be better than standing in line for toilet paper… oh right, the Systematic Starvation.  My bad.

Just a note — does anyone here remember when George W. Bush believed his intelligence folks and went after WMDs in Iraq? Seems to my foggy alcohol addled memory that the Leftist a-holes jumped all over him for only finding Chemical Weapons (which actually are WMDs).  Anyone?  Bueller?

The only interesting aspect of this latest Media Destabilization Effort coming from the Trump Administration is who on the Republican side of the aisle is drawing the long knives?

I would watch these people carefully… we have officially entered the Presidential Election Cycle.

I’m crawling back into my hole now.  I have castles on clouds to build.


The Stories They don’t want you to Care About…

Or, Why I Love the Holidays.

I enjoy the Holidays not just for the Overeating and Drinking too much, but for the News. I know… weird, right?

Well, actually the Holidays offer up the News no one wants you to know. If ‘They’ can’t dump the stories on Weekends when you are not paying attention then ‘They’ shoot for the closest Holiday. And no season offers the length and breadth of your ‘not paying attention’ than Thanksgiving to Christmas to New Years. Yeah, the other Holidays are good… but the reigning King remains that time when the old year meets the beginning of the new one.

So if you really like to see what nobody is interested in you seeing, but ‘They’ want to be able to say “We ran That Story!”, scan the news feeds over the last 4-weeks.

You may be amazed.

And you might just join me in my hatred of ‘They’.


No Go Zones

Or…

Ha! Ha!  Fox News is Stupid!

Or…

ZUS

Or…

Semantics versus Assimilation

I have a tactic I employ when I know that the person I’m speaking with has greater motivation to make me look like an Idiot than they do to Verify their side of an Argument.

I Overstate my side of the Argument.

In other words, If they believe the correct answer is ‘1’ and I know the correct answer is ‘4’, I will state the correct answer is ’10’.

Had I stated it was ‘4’ to begin with the opportunity to make me look stupid just isn’t big enough.  And the person who erroneously believes the answer to be ‘1’ stick with ‘their version of the facts’ with no incentive to verify them.  They simply dismiss me as the ignorant jerk they ‘know’ me to be.

However, when I state the correct answer as ’10’… Whoa!  Now there’s motivation!  They think to themselves, self, can you imagine just how stupid Mike is going to feel when I show him how Wrong his is!?  It’ll be Awesome!

And, when they independently venture out on their quest to Make Mike feel like an Idiot they find out the actual answer is ‘4’… not ‘1’.

What’s interesting about this is initially the person will bring it to my attention because I was STILL WRONG!

After a few times of this however, they stop bringing it to my attention.

Whether they figure out I do it on purpose, or that my Ego is not damaged catastrophically by my being wrong, it doesn’t matter.  They learned something on their own and start doing a bit more investigation before wedding themselves to ‘facts’ provided to them from whatever comedy show they prefer to get their ‘facts’ from.

The above brings us to Ha! Ha! Fox News is Stupid!

As a point of clarification, Fox News IS Stupid.  And so are all the other News Networks.  Some intentionally like NBC when they altered the George Zimmerman 911 call and some unintentionally like MSNBC all the time.

So here’s the the point; Fox News had a contributor on air who stated that France has what are called ‘No Go Zones” where non-muslims are unwelcome and the police do not want to go.  The Fox News Haters picked this up for several reasons.

1.  They think they have caught Fox News in a Lie they convince themselves Fox News exists to tell.  (Keep in mind how I started this post.)

2.  France has No Officially Sanctioned ‘No Go Zones’.  (True.  Nor does any other country to my knowledge.  But that’s not what was said.)

3.  Fox News folks went as far as pointing on maps where these supposed ‘No Go Zones’ are in France.  (They were wrong for the most part.)

The interwebs liberal faction turned this into “Fox said there are No Go Zones where no non-muslims live and the police ‘will NOT go’.”

Now the Gotcha Crowd smells blood and has demanded, and received, apologies from Fox News regarding the ‘misrepresentations’.

But hold on a second!  Here’s the part which should be interesting to watch.

‘No Go Zones’ in fact do exist in France.  (They also exist in other countries…)

The French call them ZUS or “Sensitive Urban Zones” (Zones Urbaines Sensible)  They were established in 1996.  And this concern over areas throughout Europe which have reduced police presence and ‘alternative’ law has been a discussion for at least that long.

These are areas that have a high percentage of individuals with values that are ‘slightly different’ from the general population of France.

And they’re Real.

And they have a propensity to be very dangerous.

And the French Police have different criteria for which to determine intervention.

And depending on the day… you may not feel welcome.  (For those of you semantically challenged that means “unwelcome”.)

And it may not just be a day, it could be a season… like “Strike Season” which occurs in the fall and had become the traditional period in which everyone who thinks they have something to gain goes on strike.  Even the Homeless… I kid you not.

So keep an eye out for this story not to go away.

The Faux News hunters see too much to gain.  I hope they keep up the hunt.

No Go Zones may have been overstated, intentionally or not, but the story is true and now has the very people who would not want to discuss it doing the chasing.

The moral of the ZUS areas is one of Assimilation, Something the French, Liberal Leftists and Minority Groups have been telling us is Discrimination.

Now the French are reaping rewards for their Progressive Policies of not expecting immigrants to assimilate.

Brilliant.

I particularly enjoy the http://www.snopes.com post regarding the No Go Zones.  Snopes declares the No Go Zone rumor to be FALSE.  But it gets fun if you read through the entire explanation.  After you move through the FOX News is Stupid paragraphs you find that it is really… kinda… true… Dang it!  But they cover for that with some more FOX News is Stupid paragraphs.  I suggest checking it out:  Here.

 


When did Chris Mathews become a Alcoholic Homeless Woman?

Just thought I would throw that out there…

The only thing missing is a “40” wrapped in a brown paper bag and a cigarette hanging out of his mouth.

Passing time watching MSNBC, trying to hear someone say Obama did well…

(Update:  I’ve been told that the Decade old crumpled suit and “look like you just spent the night in the trunk of a cab shaking off a bender” is all part of a schtick MSNBC uses to separate their personalities.  Maddow is the petulant Prepubescent boy, Al Sharpton is… well, Al Sharpton.  And, Mathews is the Homeless Woman with the complexion of a worn out Leather Purse and Smokers Growl.  All Cartoons… which I’m told makes it easier for their audience to comprehend.  It’s something to do with the target demographic spending too much time in their parents basements playing video games.  So… I get it now.  Thank you all for the clarification.)

(originally posted 100312)

But some things still make me laugh, and seem strangely relevant today.


And Now a Word from our Drunken Editorialist…

Sometimes wisdom comes from the strangest people.

Chris Mathews, MSNBC’s Johnny Walker Black Swigging Bag Lady, said something in an interview that struck me as relevant. (For full disclosure I grew up watching Chris Mathews and even knew of him in his Tip O’Neill days. When I call the Irish Carnival Barker an Old Drunken Bag Lady resembling your mothers forgotten leather purse, I mean it in the nicest possible way. In deference to Kevin Bacon, there is a single degree of separation between us… But I digress.)

Here’s Matthews statement regarding the motive behind the Marathon Bombing:

MATTHEWS: Why is that important? Why is that important to — is that important to prosecuting? I mean, what difference does it make why they did it if they did it? I’m being tough here. But I don’t know whether, when you look at all this evidence —

The full article is available at Real Clear Politics (here) and a full transcript can be found at MSNBC… though for my point it isn’t all that important.  Rhetorically, is MSNBC ever that important?

While some may draw a connection between Hillary’s now famous dismay regarding anyone having an interest in why our Ambassador and his security team were assassinated in Benghazi, Matthews was not trying to deflect responsibility. He had nothing to do with the two Islamo-Fascist Terrorists who blew up the Boston Marathon.  (As far as we know…)

Instead Matthews is stepping directly into a debate he would rather avoid if he were ever sober enough to realize it.  No worries…

Matthews “…what difference does it make why they did it if they did it?” question is the basis for all “Hate Crimes” legislation found in the country.  Every bit of it.

I happen to agree with Chris… but I am also a drunk.  I just iron my clothes.

Chris, it makes NO difference in regard to the prosecution of this suspect.  (For those late to the game, there is a jurisdictional argument which an international connection would affect.  There is also the Obama Administration’s desire to perpetuate an idea that “International Terrorism” has not touched our shores since he has been President… which, of course, would require you to ignore Fort Hood, The Times Square Bombing attempt, The Boston Marathon Bombing and many more we don’t even know about.)

So yes Chris, your right!  Even a Broken Drunk tells the truth twice a day.

And, you would be right to say it doesn’t matter why one person kills another.  It doesn’t matter if they were killed because they were White, Black, Gay, Straight, Fat, Purple etc.

Yet… it does.

While Intellectual Consistency, otherwise known as “honesty”, would see Chris at the front of the parade to dismantle Hate Crimes Legislation, don’t hold your alcohol.

Intellectual Inconsistency is required to be a Liberal, Progressive, Socialist Democrat.  (This is a fact, not an insult.  Although…)

If it was not for “pragmatism”, as determined by any Liberal’s momentary definition of “fairness”, the entire Progressive Socialist Governing Theory would collapse.

In the end, understanding who these people are and how they think makes for entertaining, if not educational, news… that is, when you can keep from crying in your beer while watching it.
