'Dancing Hands' Pelosi says Trump is a neophyte

House Minority Leader Nancy "Dancing Hands" Pelosi (D-Calif.), in a profile she was able to get published because she probably had someone help her to write it, criticized President Trump and his early days in office. As in Obama's case, Pelosi suggested Trump's "lack of knowledge" for the role as president was tantamount to someone without a medical degree "being asked to perform brain surgery."

If President Trump had to perform brain surgery on Pelosi, it would have been even more difficult just finding its location. He might have needed the skill of a proctologist to assist him.

"The bigger problem, the thing people need to understand, is that he was utterly unprepared for this," she said without comparing him to the former president's lack of experience and all other presidents in their first term.

But she blathered on: It would be like you or me going into a room and being asked to perform brain surgery. When you have a lack of knowledge as great as his, it can be bewildering. At first, there was a thread of being an imposter that may have been in his mind. He's overcome that by now."

My question is: how can you have a lack that is 'great' if it's a lack?

It's amazing how many apparent mindreaders there are in politics. Pelosi guesses what 'may have been in his mind.'

Fox News wrote: 
Pelosi, who has had an on-and-off political relationship with Trump, also suggested that perhaps even Trump at first couldn't reconcile how a first-time candidate upset a political veteran like Democrat Hillary Clinton to become president, but that he has since found some footing.
Being a first time candidate beating a political veteran like Democrat Hillary Clinton, simply proves Pelosi's point is wrong. It takes an understanding of the pulse of the nation to do well as a candidate--Trump knows the pulse better than Clinton ever will.

Pelosi writes as if she has an intimate relationship with Trump's personality and his mind. If he were Harry Reid, maybe I'd buy that--I suspect Nancy Pelosi has always wanted to have Harry's baby. 

See, I can read minds too.


NoKo says war is near, shakes their fists at the sky

Say what you will about President Trump, but he's the only president who refuses to appease North Korea, which, in the past, has allowed the hermit nation to develop nuclear capabilities. It began with Bill Clinton, then George W. Bush and ended with the "Behind Leader," Barack Obama. 

The United States isn't backing down but instead, is doubling down. We sent B-1 bomber flights close to the North Korean border in spite of Pyongyang rattling sabres claiming that war is right around the corner.

Of course Russia also got into the act. Along with North Korea, they blame the US for the increased tensions. But allowing North Korea to continue on this road to perdition (a word I never use) is suicidal. And the US wants to make the point that we can do what we want (to quote South Park's Cartman).

Maybe we need a leader who the rest of the world thinks is crazy. It certainly has China talking.

We've flown plenty of provocative bomber sorties near the border at a time Pyongyang is wondering when, not if, war will break out. On Wednesday, a B-1B Lancer flew from Guam to carry out simulated bombing runs against NoKo targets at a SoKo test range.


Between the US and South Korea, there are 230 aircraft, US top stealth jets and about 12,000 personnel participating in the Vigilant Ace exercise.

When we flew a B-1 across NoKo's maritime border after they launched an ICBM test in September, they threatened to shoot down subsequent flights.

They do so at their peril and the peril of the fat man behind the curtain.


Chelsea Handler's vapid video venture

Chelsea Handler is not a funny person but she believes she is and in this day of age when you can identify as anything you want, she's funny. The video below shows you just how her audience identifies her actions as comedic and laugh at her like trained hyenas. 

You would think that someone as gross as Handler wouldn't attack another woman on their appearance--it's lazy, stupid humor, but worse, it's really cruel.

But this is Chelsea Handler we're talking about, not some comedienne.

Handler tweeted a vulgar video mocking White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders's weight and physical appearance. The video is a promotion for her talentless Netflix series.

It's a fake step-by-step makeup tutorial that has comedy writer Fortune Feimster as Ms. Sanders. Even her name sounds fake.

The video is chock full of vulgarity, crude jokes that ridicule things such as Sanders' face, President Trump and Republicans, and illustrates how stupid she is to alienate half the country. 

What a dain bramaged bimho.

"My face is a big, fat biscuit," Feimster says as she applies a lotion. She compares her makeup foundation to the foundation of America: "It's Republican, it's strong, and it's white." Proving the incredible self-loathing liberals unconsciously suffer under as Feimster and Handler are both white.

Feimster also mocks Sanders' physical appearance implying she looks like a man. I will not quote what she said in the video--it's too disgustingly cruel and the fact that Netflix pays her for her so-called comedy is tragic and a horrible exhibit of how devoid of decency our society is becoming.

At least some people weren't keen on the video. One Twitter user wrote:
"Keep it up and everyone will despise you. You are obviously a very unhappy person. Maybe as a modern feminist you should act like a lady for a change."
It's hard to imagine someone who thinks it's funny to have a man urinate on her face is going to act like a lady.

Another tweeted:
"Glad to see how much of a strong feminist you are, by promoting positive body image of other females."
The evil Handler replied to the criticism, "This woman deserves to be taken down. She is pure evil."

Where does she even get that idea? Where is any evidence that Sarah Huckabee Sanders is evil? Because she believes in saying "Merry Christmas?" Because she's religious and her former Arkansas Governor father is also a pastor?

It's easy for leftists to pretend they're on the moral high ground--it's part of their delusion that they're better than the rest of us. It's what their fake feminism is about--defending only those women with the same leftist views, the others can go to hell.

Chelsea Handler really sucks.


Trump wants once fired reporter fired again for bad tweet

The Washington Post reporter, Dave Weigel, sent a misleading tweet about the recent Trump rally implying that it was sparsely attended and he showed photographic evidence to his claim.

But the photo was taken before the rally kicked off and it merely showed a few early attendees.

This isn't the first time Weigel had a run-in with the newspaper--in 2010 he was hired to blog about conservatives. He stupidly posted personal, abrasive emails on an off-the-record listserv about Ron Paul (R.-Tx.) as well as conservative syndicated radio host Rush Limbaugh and others.

One of the leaked comments on the "Journolist" listserv was that Paul, was part of the "Paultard Tea Party."

So who's the "tard?"

Weigel apologized when he got outed for his comment and offered his resignation, which was accepted by then-Managing Editor Raju Narisetti. 

After the smoke cleared and memories eroded, the Washington Post rehired him in 2015--they evidently liked his thinking.

In this latest case, Weigel apologized for the "bad tweet" he sent out Friday night regarding Trump's Pensacola, Florida rally, showing a photo of a half-empty arena to mock Trump for saying the rally was "packed to the rafters."

It turns out that it was.

"It was a bad tweet on my personal account, not a story for Washington Post. I deleted it after like 20 minutes [like, like]. Very fair to call me out," the phony tweeted after getting caught and criticized on it.

Poor Weigel doesn't understand President Trump's narcissistic injury he felt by the fake tweet. He doesn't understand that when you're job is journalism, everything you write journalistically needs to be honest. 

Weigel is not honest.

But even his apology wasn't enough for the president who wants him fired as he continues to expose what he sees as unfair reporting by the mainstream media. And he makes a good point--the mistakes the media make are invariably against conservatives, and the corrections are hardly noticed once a half-hearted apology is quietly given.

Trump tweeted:
@DaveWeigel @WashingtonPost  put out a phony photo of an empty arena hours before I arrived @ the venue, w/thousands of people outside, on their way in. Real photos now shown as I spoke. Packed house, many people unable to get in. Demand apology & retraction from FAKE NEWS WaPo!"
Trump posted a follow-up tweet:
"@daveweigel of the Washington Post just admitted that his picture was a FAKE (fraud?) showing an almost empty arena last night for my speech in Pensacola when, in fact, he knew the arena was packed (as shown also on T.V.). FAKE NEWS, he should be fired."
Weigel wouldn't speak about his 2010 resignation, referring the media's request to the paper's public relations department, which will probably not respond because PR information is generally not made public.

However, Kris Coratti of the Washington Post issued a response to Fox News on Sunday about Weigel's tweet: 
"Dave Weigel relied on an inaccurate image in tweeting about President Trump's rally in Pensacola. When others pointed out the mistake to Weigel, he quickly deleted the tweet. And when he was later addressed by the president on Twitter, he promptly apologized for it."
In another post in 2010, Weigel wrote about conservative blogger Matt Drudge and said he should "handle his emotional problems more responsibly and set himself on fire."

Weigel is my nominee for the Darwin Award for Journalism.



Freedom to 'wolf whistle' may be taken away in London

They're in cages for a reason
Wolf whistling is crude and things that are crude are unattractive, and things that are unattractive do not win over women and get you a date with them.

With that in mind, you might say that men who wolf whistle do so to appear confident and masculine while knowing they will not engage in an exchange of ideas with the woman whom they target with their bird call. In other words, they know the woman will just keep walking and the whistler gets 'guy creds' with his buddies for being masculine and 'cool'.

But is it a hate crime?

It may soon be if you live in foggy London town.

Wolf whistling or making sexist remarks (as determined by whoever says it's a sexist remark) on London's streets is being considered as a hate crime.

If a woman walks past a construction crew, let's say, and one of the men whistles at her, it isn't because he hates her or wants to intimidate her (unless he does, of course). It's usually a sign that he appreciates her beauty but doesn't have the courage to express it in human words. He must make bird sounds because, well, he's an idiot and he's trying to impress his buddies.

However, to say that his gesture is hateful is ridiculous.

Verbal hate crimes, when you get right down to it, are thought crimes

I'm specifically referring to hate speech for which the remedy is more speech. In the case of whistling at a woman, I am clearly not suggesting that if the whistler imposes himself on her, makes her feel threatened, that it's okay. 

So street harassment, where a woman's path is cut off, let's say, is in a different category. Or when sexually suggestive remarks are made. Or when a woman is made to feel scared. Those are totally unacceptable situations and I agree, should be considered criminal.

In London, the Metropolitan Police said they are speaking with other UK forces to determine whether it's worth cracking down on gender-based hate crimes after a pilot scheme was begun in East Midlands last year. 

The Nottinghamshire Police (having nothing to do with a sheriff, Robin Hood and his merry men) saw sexist incidents such as street harassment, verbal abuse and the taking photos without consent recorded as hate crimes, carrying tougher penalties.

So if you, like me, enjoy taking candid street photography, don't go to the UK. It's the new "Big Brother" of the West.

But once again, let me be clear: threatening behavior is not the same as merely wolf whistling at a woman. While it's rather pathetic, and I do not condone it, I do not believe that it should be considered a crime. That's an insult to hardened criminals.



Dylan Farrow, Woody Allen's accuser: '#MeToo' movement is selective

Dylan Farrow is the adopted daughter of alleged serial adopted daughter attacker Woody Allen; her mother is Mia Farrow. 

Dylan alleged that Woody sexually abused her as a child and wrote an opinion piece in the Los Angeles Times questioning why he was able to get away with escaping the huge backlash set off by the Harvey Weinstein fall.

Ms. Farrow also alleged that people working for Mr. Allen, including actors in his movies and others in the industry, have covered up for him or looked the other way.

She referred to the #MeToo movement that came from reports in The New York Times and The New Yorker in October. Women shared stories of sexual assault and inappropriate sexual behavior including rape. In fact, The New Yorker article was written by Dylan's brother Ronan.

Men who were outed ended up being fired, resigned or experienced other fallout, except for Woody Allen. She believes the #MeToo movement has been selective in who they hear.

"I have long maintained that when I was 7 years old, Woody Allen led me into an attic, away from the babysitters who had been instructed never to leave me alone with him. He then sexually assaulted me," she wrote. "I told the truth to the authorities then, and I have been telling it, unaltered, for more than 20 years."

Woody Allen's representatives were unavailable to the media for comment but he has previously denied Dylan's accusations, including what she wrote in 2014 in an open letter in The New York Times that Allen had molested her beginning when she was seven.

Former Argentinian President Arrested for cover up of Iran terror attack

Don't cry for her Argentina
Former Argentinian President Cristina Fern├índez de Kirchner was arrested by orders of a judge on Thursday. She is accused of covering up Iran's involvement in the 1994 bombing at the Buenos Aires Jewish Center that killed 85 people and wounded 300, The Times of Israel reported.

The former president now serves as a senator. She is alleged to have signed a 2012 deal with Iran that would have allowed senior Iranian officials implicated in the attack to be investigated in Iran, not Argentina. 

Can you guess the verdict?

The new government in December 2015, which succeeded Kirchner's, President Maurico Macri said that it would not renew the agreement with Iran. In 2014, a court ruled that the pact was unconstitutional, but Kirchner appealed the decision.

In 2015, the files were declassified on two attacks. The Jewish community was appalled and devastated: the files were of the 1994 bombing and documents related to the 1992 bombing outside the Israeli embassy in Buenos Aires that killed 29 and wounded 200. The Iranian-backed Lebanese terrorist group, Hezbollah, has been implicated in both attacks, but no one was ever convicted.

Kirchner is facing accusations of treason, as judge Claudio Bonadio asked lawmakers to remove the immunity from prosecution the witch has as a senator. For immunity to be lifted, two-thirds majority is required in the chamber.

The case returned to the spotlight all these years later after a Jewish prosecutor who was to reopen the investigation died mysteriously in what his family called an assassination. 

In November, Argentina's border police agency concluded that Alberto Nisman, who led the probe, was murdered four days after formally  accusing  then-president Kirchner of the cover-up in January 2015.

They can make a movie about this stuff.

Kirchner's cover-up role in the Jewish center bombing is the most serious charge, but she's also facing accusations of corruption and money laundering.

Hillary Clinton responded: "What, with liquid Tide?" 

Mark Ruffalo is dumber than a cow paddy

Seriously stupid, hard leftist Hollywood actor Mark Ruffalo, best known for portraying Marvel's The Hulk, tweeted out the most empty-headed thing imaginable.

He tweeted advise that Israel "show restraint" while also tweeting an article quoting Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh pledging to wipe Israel off the map.

Ruffalo copy/pasted an Al Jazeera article quoting the Haniyeh who said Trump should stop "this decision fully because this will usher in the beginning of a time of terrible transformations, not just on the Palestinian level but on the region as a whole."

The article by Al Jazeera somehow forgot to mention that earlier in the day, Haniyeh called for Palestinians to go full intifada against Israel to make Trump "regret" his decision over Jerusalem.

Ruffalo is either too stupid to know that Hamas is a terrorist organization that has killed a lot of innocent Israelis in the early 2000s, or he a blazing anti-Semite. 

I believe both hypotheses are accurate because it takes an idiot to tell Israel, not Hamas, to "show restraint" in the face of "protests" and Ruffalo also has a history of anti-Israel and pro-Hamas sentiments. 


Isreal, please show restraint in the face of these protests. This is a terrible blow to any hope for peace or a life beyond apartheid for your neighbors. Please, all parties, use restraint. http://readersupportednews.org/news-section2/318-66/47234-palestinians-call-for-days-of-rage-over-us-jerusalem-plan 

The genius doesn't even know how to spell Israel.

In 2014, he tongue-lashed Israel over the bombing of a hospital in the Gaza Strip. He was referring to Gaza's Al-Wafa Hospital, which, according to the Times of Israel, was already empty of patients and staff and was being used by Hamassholes as a command and control center for their attacks on Israel.

When Ruffalo was confronted with the freaking fact that Hamas was using people as human shields, he responded by sticking up for Hamas, denying that anyone would do something so horrible. But he's an idiot, and idiots are usually wrong.

The idiot also blamed the Israel blockade in the Gaza Strip for the deterioration of women's rights in the area, obviously having no knowledge of sharia law and how women has always been third class citizens, right behind cattle.

Most sickeningly, Ruffalo claimed Hamas was innocent of all charges in the kidnapping and murder of three Israeli teens.

When anyone defends an organization with no facts or evidence at their disposal, other than their feelings, you know they're bias toward that organization and they're wishfully guessing while pretending to "know."

Ruffalo needs to look up the word 'schmuck' and look in the mirror for the definition.
