#KosKids: We Often Repeat Ourselves

I like to start a feature where I take a look at the distorted views of the clinically insane. Or more commonly known to us on the right-side of the blogosphere, as the KosKids. They are the dedicated and brain-dead followers of Markos Moulitsas, and they have bought some prime real estate at the bottom of the rabbit hole. This feature will take a look at how far down they have gone. I am going to link them, but I beg you don’t click on them.

Today’s theme is going over stuff I have already gone over here on my blog. Off we go!

If Islam Is To Be Reformed, This Has Got To Stop

In this article by a, leftprogressive, we find that this person …actually agrees with me? Wait, what?!

I recently came across an article by Rana Elmir, the president of the Michigan chapter of the ACLU, in which she explains why, as a Muslim, she refuses to condemn Islamic terrorism. It is, without a doubt, the most disappointing and frustrating thing I’ve ever read by a moderate Muslim. Replete with mealy-mouthed excuses, false victimhood and mind-boggling denial of one’s moral and civic responsibilities, it is the epitome of the attitude that non-Muslims fear the most in the Islamic response to Islamic terrorism.

I am breaking one of my own rules to blockquote that section for prosperity. This person basically gets were I get using Liberal SJW Logic. However he/she is getting savage in the comments section. The person included a poll and the choice of “Muslims have no obligation to condemn, and the diary is bigoted.” has 54% of the vote, so you know they do not share leftprogressive‘s opinion. I would not recommend reading the comments, because it is just a bunch of mental farting.

One woman’s journey to cure Alzheimer’s ends with Hillary

This is Hillary Clinton’s “Halt The Rise Of The Oceans” moment that is developing as we speak. KBowe is holding Hillary Clinton to an impossible promise. Alzheimer’s a form of dementia and not really “curable” unless we can reverse aging. I already covered this, but Ben Shapiro throws cold water any “cure” coming out of the government:

It’s unclear whether government funding helps come up with treatments for disease. The government’s treatments, at best, amounted to somewhere between 9.3 percent and 21.2 percent of all new drugs approved from 1990 through 2007, according to a study by the New England Journal of Medicine. That means the vast majority of pharmaceutical treatments come from the private sector – and those private sector companies have to challenge the state-run hierarchy at the Food and Drug Administration, which is extraordinarily costly. Public-sector research institutions (PSRIs) come up with great solutions – but it’s private companies that then utilize those solutions to come up with far more effective drugs.

One more thing I forgot to mention on my last post on the subject: Will KBowe hold Hillary Clinton personally responsible if a “cure” is not found?

White House Unveils Common Sense Executive Actions on Guns

This post, by ericlewis0, is not really a blog entry as it is just copying wholesale the Obama Admin talking points on the new executive order/executive action on restricting your self defense rights. It is an uncritical look and just sums up with “This Is Good! Guns Bad! Down With NRA!” nonsense. This person doesn’t even go into the fact that every one of the GOP candidates said they will undo this executive order/executive action on day one.

You would not believe the amount of contempt I have for these brain-dead liberals/progressives on the Daily KOS. With the possible exception of leftprogressive, not a single one can think critically or make a coherent argument. However I am of the opinion that you should often read what the other side has to say. You can not live 24/7 in the echo chamber.

Well, see ya’ later!


President @BarackObama Just Made Another #RedLine Blunder

Remember this?

Of course you do, because Obama walked it back just mere hours before they were going to bomb al-Assad back to the stone age. President Obama was so embarrassed by the whole episode, that he tried to claim he didn’t set any red lines to begin with.

Well, it would seem that he has blundered into yet another “Red Lines” fiasco:

Senior Obama administration officials at the White House’s National Security Council told Congress Wednesday (2015/12/30) morning that new sanctions were coming as a result of Iran’s repeated ballistic missile tests, which violate current United Nations Security Council Resolutions prohibiting such activity.

However, the administration quietly walked back its announcement, telling lawmakers that the sanctions would be indefinitely delayed.

D’oh! President Obama just made members of his own National Security Council out to be a bunch of lairs. I am sure that they won’t take offense over this slight, at all [/sarcasm]. They have no honor if they just let this slide.

On top of everything, this makes President Obama look like he is taking orders from Iran:

Obama: I am going to slap new sanctions on Iran’s illegal missile tests.

Iran: …No you are not.

Obama: Did I say sanctions? I meant strongly worded letter!

Yeah, I’m positive that is how it went down.

But I am sure there are other people who are hopping mad right now. People who do not work for President Obama and can slam him. No, not Republicans:

The move sparked a fierce backlash among prominent congressional leaders who have served as chief advocates for the administration’s efforts to ink a nuclear deal with Iran. …

Rep. Steny Hoyer (D., Md.), a leading supporter of the Iran deal, blasted the move, expressing disappointment with the administration’s efforts to appease Iran.

“I am disappointed that the Administration has delayed punitive action in response to Iran’s recent ballistic missile tests,” Hoyer said in a statement. “We are always in a sensitive moment in our dealings with Iran, and there is never a perfect time to undertake such actions. But Iran must know with certainty that violating U.N. Security Council resolutions, both inside and outside the scope of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), will be met with serious consequences.”

Sen. Chris Coons (D., Del.), another leading deal supporter who initially praised the new sanctions, also expressed dismay at the administration’s move to delay the effort.

“I believe in the power of vigorous enforcement that pushes back on Iran’s bad behavior,” Coons told the Wall Street Journal. “If we don’t do that, we invite Iran to cheat.”

Ha-Ha! President Obama just made all of his supporters look like chumps! I bet you anything that they are going to do nothing to sanction Obama in any way shape or form. They are dancing to Iran’s tune, through Obama. They are puppets of a puppet.

This “I Told You So” would be much sweeter if many lives were not on the line right now. I am alarmed at the total lack of self-awareness in making the choice of not going through with new Iran sanctions, after you announce them. There is a saying (with many variations) that apply here:

The second kick from a mule is of no educational value.

President Obama just got kicked by the same mule, for virtually the same damn reason. And I am dead sure that they have yet to learn the lesson.

Well, see ya’ later!

#RanaElmir/@ACLUofMichigan Deputy Director: “Condemn #Terrorism? I Refuse!”

We keep hearing that moderate American Muslims do indeed condemn Islamic Terrorism, or Terrorism for that matter, and we just don’t hightlight it. Fair enough, here is Rana Elmir ACLU of Michigan Deputy Director:

I emphatically refuse.

Well, there you have it. Out of the mouth of a modern, moderate, American Muslim. I don’t recommend reading the rest of the article, because it is an “Muslims Are The Real Victims!” diatribe.

Please. Give me a break. Christian homes and churches are torched or bombed by Muslims everyday, and hundreds of Christians, including priests, pastors, nuns, and other church workers are murdered at the hands of Islamic extremists. Justification varies from that of apostasy or evangelism to reported “blasphemy” or “insulting” Islam. Many have even been hacked to death by devout Muslims over cartoons. The horrors visited upon Christians include discrimination, kidnapping, rape, torture, mutilation, and outright murder. So spare me the Muslim Victim Card, I don’t have time for it.

For Islam, violence is a matter of course:

The context of violent passages (in the Qur’an) is more ambiguous than might be expected of a perfect book from a loving God. Most contemporary Muslims exercise a personal choice to interpret their holy book’s call to arms according to their own moral preconceptions about justifiable violence. Their apologists cater to these preferences with tenuous arguments that gloss over historical fact and generally do not stand up to scrutiny. Still, it is important to note that the problem is not bad people, but bad ideology.

Unfortunately, there are very few verses of tolerance and peace to abrogate or even balance out the many that call for nonbelievers to be fought and subdued until they either accept humiliation, convert to Islam, or are killed. Muhammad’s own martial legacy, along with the remarkable stress on violence found in the [Qur’an], have produced a trail of blood and tears across world history.

And lying is also a standard operating procedure for Islam:

Muslim scholars teach that Muslims should generally be truthful to each other, unless the purpose of lying is to “smooth over differences.”

There are two forms of lying to non-believers that are permitted under certain circumstances, taqiyya and kitman. These circumstances are typically those that advance the cause of Islam – in some cases by gaining the trust of non-believers in order to draw out their vulnerability and defeat them. …

Taken collectively (from the Qur’an and Hadith) these verses are interpreted to mean that there are circumstances when a Muslim may be “compelled” to deceive others for a greater purpose.

So yeah, I am HIGHLY suspicious of Muslims and for good reason. They follow a “religion” that peaches violence and lying as part of their belief system. How can I trust any of them?

But unlike Rana Elmir, I will fully condemn terrorism in all forms. Anyone who visits violence on any Muslim, just because, is wrong and I want no part of it. Anyone who does Evil In God’s Name, only hurts God. However make no mistake, I will not allow a Muslim (or other Christians or Atheists or Jews or Hindus) to visit violence upon me or others.

So Rana Elmir (a modern, moderate, American Muslim) refuses to condemn terrorism for reasons. Fair enough. It is her First Amendment right to do so. I am disappointed, but then what do you expect from ACLU members and the so-called Religion Of Peace?

Well, see ya’ later!

#AugustaCountyVA Schools W/ #Shahada/#Calligraphy Assignment …Closed Today

After Los Angeles School District’s fit of insanity, the Augusta County (Virginia) Public Schools decided they would out-do them in epic fashion:

Augusta County public schools cancelled activities this afternoon and classes tomorrow (now today) following public and parental reactions to a class assignment that involved students writing “There is no god but Allah. Muhammad is the messenger of Allah” in calligraphy class.

The statement is known as the shahada, the Muslim statement of faith.

There was no specific threat of harm to students…

So they shut-down the ENTIRE SCHOOL DISTRICT over criticism. I am at a loss for words. Ace Of Spades pretty much boils it down for us:

Which I take as an attempt to shift attention from their bad behavior to fantasized bad behavior on the part of their critics.

He then goes on to write the virtual conversation between the critics and the school district, which is great. The SJWs preach separation of church and state, then force students to unwittingly write a Muslim pronouncement of faith in the name of tolerance. Then when criticized, they then proclaim themselves the victim.

Why isn’t Superintendent Dr. Eric Bond handing over his resignation letter over this nonsense? Does Dr. Bond have any shame? The man is now a walking and talking disgrace. Dr. Bond has personally made Augusta County Public Schools a national joke. I am embarrassed for everyone involved.

Well, see ya’ later!


#Trump2016: @realDonaldTrump, #PoliticalCorrectnessKills, And #Hypocrisy Abounds

I want to apologize to Donald Trump. He is not Ego, he is the ID. Trump is unfiltered. Trump is unbound. Trump is incoherent.

The fact that Donald Trump is the Id, scares a lot of people. I understand that sentiment. You see, The Left is Ego (where Political Correctness comes from) and The Right is Super-Ego (where Morality comes from).

However, The Right wants to (at the same time) embrace and dismiss the Id too.

What do I mean? Recently, The Right floated the hashtag #PoliticalCorrectnessKills. The basic idea is that Political Correctness will keep you from doing what is right, because you do not want to be shamed. The San Bernardino shooter’s own neighbor thought Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik were acting suspicious, but did nothing because he did not want to be called a racist. We bitch and moan that President Obama is not doing enough to screen people coming into the United States and destroying ISIS. Then we turn around and condemn the Id, I mean Donald Trump, for speaking out as he does.

Like I said, I understand not being rules by the Id. However I think it is height of hypocrisy to summon the Id and then recoil when it rears its head.

Look, we are talking about war here. The whole point of war is to keep hitting someone until they say stop or stop moving. The idea is that we need to win the next five wars while winning the current war. The atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki was a horrific thing to do, but a prolonged invasion of Japan would have been even MORE horrific. The bloodshed, rape, and destruction across Japan would also not have sit well with anyone. It also showed the world the horrific nature of Nuclear Weapons in general. If we didn’t have those images from the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, I personally don’t think we could have come out the other end of the Cold War.

I am not saying we should nuke the Middle East, what I am saying is that we need to stop being politically correct about war. Donald Trump is not saying wants to put Muslims in concentration camps, he wants to pause Muslim immigration until we can get a better screening process to root out Radical Islam (YOU DO NOT HAVE CONSISTULTIONAL RIGHT TO MIGRATE OR VISIT THIS COUNTRY). Donald Trump wants to take the hand-cuffs off the US Military and stop pussy-footing with ISIS/ISIL (THEY DON’T GIVE TWO CENTS ABOUT OUR FAMILYS, WHY SHOULD WE?).

We need to either embrace political correctness and welcome our doom, or reject political correctness and defeat Radical Islam once and for all. I am exhausted from hearing from people talking both ends on this subject.

I am going to leave you with the best part of the video called Darth Vader, which actually matches more than the other parts of the video. Come to the Dark Side, we have Trump Steak!

Well, see ya’ later!


#ISIS/#ISIL Orders #Infanticide Of #DownsSyndrome Children

Right, you want to read something monstrous (Via Peter Singer):

It might be maintained that ‘even allowing for the more optimistic assessments of the potential of Down’s syndrome children, this potential cannot be said to be equal to that of a normal child’. But, in fact, people with Down’s syndrome, as well as people affected by many other severe disabilities, are often reported to be happy.

Nonetheless, to bring up such children might be an unbearable burden on the family and on society as a whole, when the state economically provides for their care.

On these grounds, the fact that a fetus has the potential to become a person who will have an (at least) acceptable life is no reason for prohibiting abortion. Therefore, we argue that, when circumstances occur after birth such that they would have justified abortion, what we call after-birth abortion should be permissible.

Ops, sorry. That was from the awful Journal of (So-Called) Medical Ethics. Yeah, we already know The Left shares this appalling taste for Down’s Syndrome blood.

Now where did I put that link and information about ISIS/ISIL… Is it here? No… Oh, I found it at last!

Iraqi activist group Mosul Eye says the ISIS Shar’ia Board issued a savage “oral fatwa (an Islamic term for a religious decree)” to its members authorising (sic) them to “kill newborn babies with Down’s Syndrome and congenital deformities and disabled children”.

If true – and reports from the war-torn region are difficult to verify – it means ISIS has taken a leaf from the Nazis, who murdered disabled children it perceived to be a “burden on the state”.

Mosul Eye monitored the deaths of children with Down’s Syndrome and other congenital deformities and discovered the fatwa was issued by one of Islamic States’s Shar’ia judges, a Saudi judge named ” Abu Said Aljazrawi.

No wonder President Obama loves them some ISIS/ISIL and has a weak stomach to destroy them, they share the same infanticide blood lust! How fucking horrific!

Next time The Left wants to throw “GOP And ISIS/ISIL Share Common Cause” for whatever reason, then I will throw this in their face!

Well, see ya’ later!


#Trump2016: @BarackObama Endorses @realDonaldTrump Too

I, like many others, watched President Obama’s speech last night. There are many things to pick apart about the speech. I am going to leave that great task to others. However one statement just jump out at me as being completely tone deaf and a sign that President Obama is completely out of touch with reality. One or two other insightful people may have picked up on brief tour of absolute insanity and I am sure I will not be the last. This is what President Obama said:

We’re working with Turkey to seal its border with Syria.

*facepalm and then a scream of frustration*

And there we have it. The final and clinching proof that God currently smiles wonderfully in Donald Trump’s direction. As the sun rises in the east and then sets in the west, the slow realization of this will drive some people insane. I, for one, am not fighting the insanity anymore. In an insane world, you have to be insane to be sane.

If Donald Trump doesn’t pick up this gold nugget and run with it, then Trump doesn’t deserve to be in the White House himself. I mean, the talking points from Trump pretty much write themselves at this point in time:

“Obama wants to secure Turkey’s southern border with Syria in the name of Terrorism, why can’t (he or I) secure our southern border with Mexico in the name of Terrorism?”

It is over people. The writing is on the wall. Everything beyond this point is simple formalities. You are now officially throwing good money after bad supporting any candidate other than Donald Trump.

Well, see ya’ later!


#Trump2016: The #ParisAttacks Is Why I’m Endorsing @realDonaldTrump …For Now

I want to state first and foremost, that I do not think Donald Trump is the right person for the job. That honor goes to Scott Walker. However, as much as I hate to say it, Donald Trump may very well be the only person who can be President right now.

At the start of November 2015, I thought I could sit out the GOP primary without endorsing anyone. When the Florida primary came around I would vote for Scott Walker as a write-in and take pop-shots at Hillary Clinton whenever I could. The Paris Attacks woke me up and told me I could not very well sit on the sidelines anymore. So I sat down and went through the candidates.

I like Ben Carson and Carly Fiorina, but I can’t endorse them. Ben Carson lacks ego. Carly Fiorina has ego and drive, but lacks everything else. I honestly think they would make better Senators.

To be brutally honest, I can’t endorse any Senator running because of Barack Obama. I would make an exception for Marco Rubio, however I rather he become Florida’s next governor and THEN become President.

The only governors I would have endorsed, were Rick Perry and Scott Walker. Of course they dropped out and we as a nation lost big time when they did.

I dismissed Donald Trump out of hand. I distrust the guy. Trump is a loud mouth, unrepentant egomaniac. Until a few years ago, Trump was also an unrepentant liberal. In fact, he still sometimes spews liberal nonsense. Trump latched onto the crazy Birther nonsense and would not let go.

Yet President Obama’s unbelievable response to the November 13th’s Paris Attacks made me take a second look at Donald Trump.

So I decided to sit down and list what are Donald Trump’s positives: Here is a guy who turned a million dollars, into billions of dollars (which is honestly no small feat). Here is a guy whose mantra is to “Make America Great Again” and that is great goal no matter how you spin it (whether or not he has the right policies or not, is up for debate). Here is a guy that says some things I agree with (even if I don’t agree how he says it).

You know, I did not endorse Florida Governor Rick Scott in the GOP primary when he ran in 2010. Yet I gritted my teeth and I voted for him in the general election that year. I have call him out many times, especially on Sun Rail. However not once have I regretted voting for him. He has not been the best governor ever, but Rick Scott is clearly not the worst governor. Through sheer force of will alone Rick Scott has moved Florida forward, for good or ill.

I am not a single issue voter. Nor am I looking for someone who totally matches my world view. I’m looking, first and foremost, for a leader to move America. A leader is someone who moves his followers, not the other way around. The only person I keep coming back to who could move America forward through sheer force of will alone, is Donald Trump. This is not done lightly or without a lot of prayer. So, for now, I am endorsing Donald Trump for President of The United States.

This endorsement is not meant as support for everything Donald Trump has done or said. In fact, I will continue to be one of Trump’s biggest critics when I disagree with him. I will not join the Cult Of Trump, so I will not jump down your throat for any reason. I will lay down the marker that I will vote for the GOP nominee, whoever he or she might be.

Well, see ya’ later!

#StopRussianAgression: Fire @WBStevens Please!

I normally don’t like to make short posts with more text in the blockquote box than what I write. But here I make an exception:

A spokesman for the U.S. embassy in Russia said on Tuesday that “too much energy” has been spent trying to discover who is responsible for the terrorist attack on a Malaysian airlines flight last year that killed nearly 300 people. …

Other twitter users captured screenshots of the tweet before it was deleted:

(Will) Stevens’ comments came shortly after Dutch investigators released long-awaited findings on the attack, which found that it was shot down by a Russian-made missile.

I am sick and tired of these Putin apologists here in America giving Russia some talking points. We need to call these motherfuckers out and expose them for what they are.

On those notes, Will Stevens needs to be fired or removed from his Russian post. He is clearly too close to the Russian people to think rationally that the Putin is the bad guy. Sympathy for the everyday Russian people is one thing. I pray everyday they will wake up to the tyrant ruling over them. But when it starts clouding your judgment on the evil Putin government, then you become an agent of evil.

Well, see ya’ later!
