It’s difficult to tell…

If the events down in Ferguson and the events in other parts of the country spurred by Ferguson are the result of abject stupidity or awful people.  Like most of these situations, I suppose it’s a lot of both.

Look, we clearly have an issue with the criminal justice system in this country.  A horrific percentage of black men are incarcerated for drug “crimes” alone.  There’s an urgent need for reform and thankfully, this seems to be an issue that both sides can agree on: Criminal Justice Reform Brings Together Liberals, Conservatives.

But the killing of Michael Brown and the decision by the Grand Jury to not prosecute officer Darren Wilson is not part of the aforementioned problem.  There’s plenty of problems here (I’ll get to those), but racially biased justice is not one of them.  Multiple witnesses (some of whom were African American) testified that Michael Brown punched Officer Wilson twice, then attempted to grab the Officer’s weapon.  Finally, when the Officer instructed Brown to put his hands up and surrender, witnesses state that Brown charged at the officer with his head down “like a football player”.  I don’t know about you, but I was always taught that if a Police Officer told me to put my hands up and surrender, charging at him would result in a bullet entering my brain and that’s exactly what happened to Michael Brown.But despite the Grand Jury making the correct and I daresay brave ruling, we’ve got lots of problems.  We have Michael Brown’s stepfather inciting the crowd in Ferguson to “Burn this bitch down” in response to hearing the jury’s ruling.  Burning down the buildings owned by people who have absolutely nothing to do with what happened to your son and even less to do with the Grand Jury’s decision seems like a reasonable reaction.  Most of the businesses that were destroyed happened to be minority owned.

Next up on the problem list is the skinny, 6 foot pile of excrement that the brilliant people of this country decided to elect as President (twice).  He and his partner in crime, Eric Holder (whose birth reportedly resulted from a hobo farting into an old shoe) have done their damnedest to create as much racial hatred and general chaos as possible from this situation.  Then the sanctimonious anthropomorphic shitpile actually has the stones to get up in front of the podium tonight and lecture the American people that the angry protests are justified.  As an added bonus, he informed us at the end that he’s sending his aforementioned butt boy, Eric Holder to “investigate the grand jury’s decision”.  The implication there to the black community of course is that they were screwed over by a racist Grand Jury.  If everything was on the up and up, there would be no need to investigate.

And this is the game.  Make sure the Black Community focuses their pent up anger, fueled by record unemployment and lack of opportunity, at those racist white people that are around every corner and every police precinct.  This is of course preferable to the alternative where African Americans realize that Obama cut their collective economic throat last week by granting 5 million entry level workers amnesty.

The older I get, the more I truly believe that there is real evil in this world.  There is no other word for what Barack Obama and Eric Holder are doing here.  But I also believe that those who allow themselves to be manipulated and seduced by that evil are every bit the problem and every bit as evil.  The people who have used this manipulation as an excuse to burn and destroy and murder down in Ferguson.  The government officials in Missouri who have used this opportunity to incite violence.  Officials such as Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadali (D), a disgusting whore who proudly informed MSNBC today that “This is St. Louis’ race war.”  The useful idiots who have spent their time in cities across the nation today stupidly and slothfully protesting a decision that they clearly know nothing about.  One of the idiots protesting the decision here in my hometown of Minneapolis damaged a car bumper with her head.  If there’s any justice, she’ll be forced to pay for the repair work.

Yes, what Barack Obama is doing is evil.  I don’t believe there’s any other word for deliberately obfuscating the truth in an attempt to incite violence and mistrust between races.  But taking part in that deception, whether it’s as a willing co-conspirator or a willing target is evil as well.  This is what we’re up against for the next two years.  Are you ready?

Amnestied Illegal Immigrants to Cost Taxpayers $2 Trillion Over Their Lifetime – Breitbart

“The net cost — which is total benefits minus total benefits paid in — of the amnesty recipients I estimate will be around $2 trillion over the course of their lifetime,” Rector explained in an interview with Breitbart News Monday. He added that the calculation is based on the assumption that 4 million undocumented immigrants will participate and they will live, on average, 50 years. 

According to Rector — who has published extensively on welfare, poverty, and immigration — the cost has two components: The first is the potential to access Social Security and Medicare, given amnestied undocumented immigrants’ ability to obtain work permits and Social Security Numbers.

“What [Obama] is doing is he is putting these 4 million people — who on average have a 10th grade education — into the Social Security and Medicare programs,” Rector said. He used much of the same methodology he incorporated in his May 2013 study on the cost of amnesty to reach his conclusions. 

Eh, who cares?  It’s always somebody else’s money when you’re a Democrat.

The big shake up.. (ha!)

How Obama Dumped Hagel – Politico

Nothing surprising here.  There had to be some kind of shake up in the cabinet after the ass pounding the White House received in the mid terms (Haven’t you noticed that Obama has been smiling more often lately?) and considering that Hagel has no voice in military strategy, this was the easiest move Obama could make while still appearing to listen to the message Americans sent a few Tuesdays ago.

The scary thing is that Hagel’s voice, despite being barely above a whisper, was the lone voice of experience and sanity when it comes to military and defense decisions within the White House.  Now those decisions are made exclusively by Valerie Jarrett and Susan Rice.  No, I’m not kidding.

The Washington Times has an interesting piece on this as well:

Hagel latest in long line of Obama advisers to turn against national security policy

Mr. Hagel, the only Republican in Mr. Obama’s Cabinet, had been marginalized for months, and numerous reports said he was pushed out and that the Defense Department was being micromanaged out of the West Wing of the White House. (Mr. Sasshole’s Note:  West Wing of the WH = Rice, Jarrett and Obama)

He becomes the latest member of the president’s national security team to resign and the third defense secretary to leave amid turmoil. Both of Mr. Hagel’s predecessors, Robert Gates and Leon Panetta, blasted Mr. Obama after leaving the Pentagon, penning books that were highly critical of aspects of the administration’s foreign policy.

In addition to the Pentagon chiefs, Mr. Obama also has seen his top diplomat, former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, depart after the 2012 election. She was replaced by former Sen. John F. Kerry.

Mr. Obama also has had three national security advisers, with James Jones lasting less than two years and Tom Donilon lasting less than three. The job now is held by Susan E. Rice.

The sad/scary thing is how utterly unqualified most of the current personnel are for their roles.  There are at least three current cabinet members that are openly mocked by the rest of the cabinet (including Obama and Jarrett) for their ineptitude.  I’ll give you a hint on one of them, his name rhymes with “John Kerry”.  We’ve never had a White House like this.  But of course, we’ve never had a White House where the duties of the Executive Branch are regarded as a far lower priority relative to implementing the plan that Barack Obama was sent to install.

It’s a hidden Friday news dump bonanza!!!

While you were snoozing/fucking/shooting up/sobbing quietly in a darkened room while smoking a cigarette, Obama quietly re-upped us for another year in Afghanistan!

Or, more accurately, while you were voting. Was Barack Obama conveniently waiting for after the midterm elections to add another year of combat duty to our tour in Afghanistan, or is this just a big coincidence? YMMV, but the New York Times suggests that the decision was made longer than just 17 days ago in this Friday night document dump:

President Obama decided in recent weeks to authorize a more expansive mission for the military in Afghanistan in 2015 than originally planned, a move that ensures American troops will have a direct role in fighting in the war-ravaged country for at least another year.

Mr. Obama’s order allows American forces to carry out missions against the Taliban and other militant groups threatening American troops or the Afghan government, a broader mission than the president described to the public earlier this year, according to several administration, military and congressional officials with knowledge of the decision. The new authorization also allows American jets, bombers and drones to support Afghan troops on combat missions.

In an announcement in the White House Rose Garden in May, Mr. Obama said that the American military would have no combat role in Afghanistan next year, and that the missions for the 9,800 troops remaining in the country would be limited to training Afghan forces and to hunting the “remnants of Al Qaeda.”

The decision to change that mission was the result of a lengthy and heated debate that laid bare the tension inside the Obama administration between two often-competing imperatives: the promise Mr. Obama made to end the war in Afghanistan, versus the demands of the Pentagon that American troops be able to successfully fulfill their remaining missions in the country.

Memo to the idiots out there who are still reassuring themselves with statements like “Obama isn’t a war monger like Bushitler and Cheney!”:  They’re all war mongers.  Proper grown ups realized a long time ago that the only thing that changes is the rhetoric.

Another hidden Friday news dump:

If You Like Your Obamacare Health Plan, You Can Keep It, If HHS Doesn’t Pick a New One For You. – Reason.com

“Here’s a Friday Obamacare news-dump for you: In a 300-page regulatory proposal released late this afternoon, the Department of Health and Human Services announced that it is considering changing Obamacare’s auto-renewal rules so that, within the health law’s exchanges, instead of being automatically renewed into your current health plan, you’d be moved into the lowest cost plan from the same service tier. . . . It’s not just auto-reenrollment. It’s auto-reassignment. Basically, if you like your plan, but don’t go out of your way to intentionally re-enroll, the kind and wise folks at HHS or state health exchanges might just pick a new plan—perhaps with different doctors, clinics, cost structures, and benefit options—for you. And if you want to switch back? Good luck once open enrollment is closed. There’s always next year. A hassle? Maybe. But have faith: They know what’s best.”

While you were preoccupied..

…with the news of impending riots in Ferguson and of course, the Amnesty ruling by Dear Leader, the Obama administration happened to “find” some of those missing Lois Lerner emails.

For those of you not paying attention, this is the Administration’s M.O. that’s been exhibited over and over and over:  Release damaging information late in the afternoon on a Friday when the news cycle is at its end for the week and do it at a time where other major issues are grabbing the spotlight.  Although I have no doubt that at least part of the delay was the time needed to scrub the emails of any damaging information to the Administration.

30,000 Lois Lerner Emails that Were Missing Have Been Found – PJ Tattler

The U.S. Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) has informed several committees of Congress that approximately 30,000 emails from Lois Lerner, the former chief of the IRS Exempt Organizations Division, that were thought to be lost forever have been found.

The TIGTA said it would take several months to retrieve the emails because they have been stored on “disaster recovery tapes” and separating them is a laborious and time consuming task.

 The emails take in the years 2009-11. Some may be duplicates of emails Lerner has already supplied to Congress.
(Mr. Sasshole’s note:  The House and Senate committees requesting this data should have asked for the original backup images from the tapes, not the restored data.)
Folks, just so there’s no confusion here:  There will be no smoking gun found that ties this bitch’s actions to the Oval Office.  Those emails were destroyed long ago when the investigations started.  The only chance of ever seeing those emails is if someone in the IT Group for the IRS has a conscience and restored the data on his/her own.  What do you think the chances are that someone who is willing to work for the IRS happens to have scruples?
