Difficult not to chuckle a bit at this..

Barack Obama’s brother has endorsed Donald Trump for President

Malik also mentions his disappointment with his brother’s job as President.

The last straw, he said, came earlier this month when FBI Director James Comey recommended not prosecuting Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton over her use of a private e-mail servers while secretary of state.

“She should have known better as the custodian of classified information,” said Obama.

He’s also annoyed that Clinton and President Obama killed Libyan leader Moammar Khadafy

Don’t be too mad at him about the Khadafy thing, Malik.  Your brother was just following orders from his bosses on that one, just like Dubya was doing the same with Saddam.  Can’t have those guys trying to get rid of the petro-dollar.

But yeah, aside from all that “destroying Libya” business, your brother sucks.

The myth of the Republic..

The desperation exhibited by the DNC and RNC due to the success of Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump allowed us to see how “the sausage gets made” so to speak.  Despite that, it seems a large portion of the electorate doesn’t want to believe that free and legitimate elections in this country have been nothing more than a myth for decades.

Sure, sometimes big elections at the Federal level have been won legitimately, but that’s after the national committees have put in front of us exactly who they wanted.

Perhaps this new story gleaned from a WikiLeaks dump of the DNC’s emails will convince more of the hold-outs that we no longer have a Republic.

Progressivism in two sentences…

There are numerous and myriad reasons why I’m not a Republican, most of which can easily be gleaned by reading this blog with any regularity.  But modern day Liberals/Progressives…. well, to quote a wise man:  “I hate Republicans, but I really fucking hate Liberals”.

So I promised you two sentences.

The headline on a story in today’s edition of the Washington Post:

“We need to eat less meat.  Should the government step in?”

My initial disgust comes from the immediate rush to go running to the government for help.

But what really fucking disgusts me is the message there floating along in the undercurrent of those two sentences.

“We need to eat less meat.”  We know with complete certainty that this is true.

“Should the government step in?”  Let’s make everyone else do what we know is right.

Somehow  the concept of “persuasion” is lost on Liberals.  Now, let’s be honest, we probably do eat too much meat in this country.  But I have no fucking right to force someone else to “eat less meat” either directly or by urging my government to force them to.  That combination of hubris and the desire to control others is both shameful and disgusting and the Left is rife with that putrid combination.  That is not “progressive”.  That is not “democratic”.  That is fascism.

I will try to persuade you that my opinion is correct until I’m fucking blue in the face, but I will never force you to behave the way I want you to.

 

Cognitive dissonance…

I can’t help wondering why nobody else in the blogosphere or the conservative media has noticed the absurd hypocrisy being spouted by the Left.

We’ve been told by Democrats repeatedly that the Police have an institutional problem with violence against African Americans.

We’re also being told repeatedly (if not directly) that only the Police should have guns.

So why would we support only giving guns to these horrible people?

 

 

 

The Republican Platform’s Surprise Revival of Glass-Steagall Legislation – The Intercept

Manafort, in his comments about the platform, claimed that “the Obama-Clinton years have passed legislation that has been favorable to big banks,” and that Trump would “support small banks and Main Street.” This unabashed play for community banks is mirrored in the platform, which notes the sector’s decline from 13,000 in 1985 to only 1,900 today. “Community banks are essential to ensuring small businesses have easy and affordable access to the capital they need to grow and prosper,” the platform says. “Community banks should be relieved of excessive regulations.”

Why would community banks like restoring Glass-Steagall? Because a firewall between deposit-taking and investment bank activity would force the top six banks in America to break up. This, in turn, would bolster the ability of community banks to regain market share.

In addition, the announcement gives Trump a way to appeal to Bernie Sanders supporters, who extolled Glass-Steagall restoration as a key way to cut off depositor money from excessive risk-taking in trading markets. 

A pleasant surprise.

Panic prompted ObamaCare lawlessness – The Hill

(Mr. Sasshole Note:  I’m surprised this story hasn’t gotten much play yet in conservative and libertarian media given the explosive nature of the information.  Perhaps the RNC and our President encouraging people to attack cops has squeezed this story out of the new cycle thus far.)

Senior Obama administration officials took a series of decisions beginning in late 2013 that ranged from the reckless to the illegal in an effort to keep insurers participating in health insurance exchanges.

A report issued last week jointly by the House Ways and Means and Energy and Commerce committees explores how the administration came to unlawfully funnel $7 billion in unappropriated money to insurers through a single ObamaCare program.

The program — known as cost-sharing reduction (CSR) — requires insurers to reduce deductibles and other out-of-pocket spending for certain low-income people who signed up for coverage through health insurance exchanges. In turn, the statute authorized the administration to seek an appropriation from Congress to reimburse insurers for the cost of providing these coverage enhancements.

The congressional report chronicles how the administration determined as early as 2010 that it needed an appropriation to make CSR payments to insurers. In April 2013, the president submitted a budget to Congress formally requesting the appropriation.

But in July, the Senate Appropriations Committee, then controlled by Democrats, expressly denied the president’s request. Sometime after Congress refused to fund the program, the administration contrived the theory that it could spend money without an appropriation.

Just wait.  I’ve been saying it for years and I think we’re close to my prediction coming to fruition.  When Obamacare finally gets so bad that even Democrats start admitting that the ACA has been a colossal failure, they’ll use some form of the excuse:

“Obamacare didn’t work because we didn’t go far enough.  We should have done a full blown Public Option.”  Which of course means the Federal government fully takes over the healthcare system in this country.  And millions upon millions of otherwise intelligent people will go full retard and vehemently cry out for the federal government to forcibly socialize the medical industry.  Just you wait.
