Once every two or four years, a miracle occurs and Leftists actually give a crap about the downtrodden masses that they run out as human shields. This apparantly isn’t one of those times in Flint, MI. That, or the current mayor believes that Blacks will stand up, salute, and dutifully march to the polls to reelct a municipal government that literally can’t be botherd with spending almost $650M in gifts to avoid having their little kids drink from lead plumbing.
On Monday, Mayor Karen Weaver’s administration abruptly said it would rescind the $12 million contract from Goyette Mechanical, a local firm with 90 years of experience that specializes specifically in municipal water. On Tuesday, it asked the city council to approve the move, but uproar from multiple factions of the city council led to discussions being tabled until July 8. The city of less than 100,000 has collected more than $647 million in state and federal aid for what is often described as a public health emergency. But when the money reaches City Hall, officials have repeatedly made decisions that have severely slowed the progress of fixing the water pipes, decisions that have had the side effect of sending more money to WT Stevens’ coffers.
Yes, there was an alternative available that placed a low bid, had a reliable track-record with regards to cost, performance and schedule, and offered domain-related experience in fixing municipal water systems. But those guys didn’t have any former NBA players on the BOD. Screw all that cost, performance and schedule nonsense. It’s no like anyone important will keel over and die of cancer. The Sweet Meteor of Death can’t strike Amerika soon enough.
Senators Tom Cotton (R., Ark.), Ted Cruz (R., Texas), and Marco Rubio (R., Fla.) urged the Trump administration to increase pressure on Iran’s nuclear program in a Wednesday morning letter. “We write to urge you to increase pressure on Iran’s nuclear program, in the aftermath of Iran publicly violating the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) by stockpiling more than 300kg of low-enriched uranium and threatening further violations within weeks,” the letter begins.
There is one way to prevent Iran from nuking up. Turn Quods into a highly-reflective sea of mordantly beautiful, high-albedo glass. The US is either willing to rip the guts out of moral leadership and political power base of The Supreme Ayatollah or this clown trio of GOP Senators is just rubbing another one out to get microphone time. Forget Tehran, forget the power facilities, forget direct action against Hezbollah or any other obvious Iranian proxy. Cut the head off the ravening python or zip the soup-cooler. Any solution on Iran that isn’t a permanent solution that does to Iranian Fundamentalist Islam what a can of Raid is purported to do to crawly bugs; isn’t worth the life of a single Amerikan military operator. Screw or leave the whorehouse, Mr. President.
Amerika has a tremendous opportunity. We earned this opportunity despite the idiots, bureaucrats and nay-sayers.
Fast forward to 2019. President Obama and everyone who agreed with him has been proven wrong. The United States – not Saudi Arabia or Russia – is now the world’s largest crude oil producer. This was unthinkable a few years ago, when politicians bemoaned our dependence on foreign oil, without ever offering any solutions. In the new energy economy Texas leads the way and is almost certain to exceed 5 million barrels per day, or about 40% of the total American output. As if to underscore just how huge a player Texas now is, a company here recently inked a deal to export natural gas – to Saudi Arabia.
So what should we do with it? Disencumber ourselves of much of the rest of the world. There is no need to risk a war with Russia, Iran, Syria or any other petty Resource-Backed Dictator. Stop begging them to behave. Ask them instead, “What is in it for us to maintain contact with you at all?”
And (((Israel)))? We’ve sold them M1’s, Bradleys, AH-64Ds, and numerous other conventional battlefield systems that put them far beyond the system inventory of any other military in the region. They need to use their toolkit, not our people’s lives; to defend their country. I’m happy to sell them the ammo to reload, but that’s about it. They push it too far, and it’s time to remember The Liberty.
NATO is another issue. The Europeans keep talking about an EU defense force. Let them use it. They’ve got a military genius like the former German Defense Minister to lead it. If they buy their LNG from Russia, then they can buy the military protection necessary to still afford their socialism. On Russia’s terms; not ours.
Now is the time to restablish the Anglo-Sphere. An effective military, trade and cultural power block featuring the USSA, Canada, Somewhat Decent Britain, Austrailia, NZ and maybe Hong Kong if China messes things up badly enough, would be an empire the Sun would truly never set upon. Such is the opportunity that comes with increasing US energy independence.
Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI), the first Republican on Capitol Hill to call for impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump, trails primary challenger State Rep. Jim Lower by a sizeable margin, according to a poll released Tuesday. A Practical Political Consulting/MIRS poll shows Amash (33 percent) behind Lower (49 percent) by 16 percent. The poll was conducted between June 5th-9th and served 360 likely Republican voters. Amash’s other primary challenger, Army National Guardsman Tim Norton, was not included in the poll.
It’s Tool Time with Justin Amish. And not just because his personal stake in a Chinese-owned tool factory dictates his votes on American trade policy. It’s good to see a turncoat run out of Congress. By my reckoning this is a nice start. One down, about 400 or so to go.
When police arrived at the scene in the town of Pajeczno on Thursday night, they found the Soviet-era tank casually parked on a central roadway with its two occupants nearby, one of whom was an intoxicated 49-year-old man who had been in the driver seat. As it turns out, he had been authorized to drive the vehicle – although his superiors presumably only wanted him to move it off and on the damaged trailer on which it was being transported, rather than driving it through the city center. They also likely expected him to remain sober while operating the 36-ton armored combat vehicle. To make matters worse, local media report that there was no insurance policy on the tank.
Old USSR military systems were rumored to be unreliable. I think that was only true when bored Russian Privates ran the hydraulic fluid through a distilling rig to make synthetic vodka. See, this one seemed to function perfectly well. In Russia, T55 drives you. Maybe they had this blaring out of the tank’s commo system.
Longshanks had a point. Scotland is detritus. The next time the Scots vote on leaving, England needs to lay aside money for a rebuild of Hadrian’s Wall. They are well on the way to being Occident’s answer to North Korea.
The viral footage revealed that the teen had been removed from class for stating that there are only two genders, with the teacher telling him that whilst the boy was entitled to his “opinion”, he could not share it at school because “the authority” and school policy dictated that there are many genders and to assert otherwise was “not acceptable” and tantamount to discrimination. “I know what you think, and I know what the authority thinks, I know the authority’s point of view is very clear,” the teacher is heard saying. Murray had been suspended for one week, according to the school on grounds of sharing the footage of his teacher without his consent, later tripled to three weeks. Now, the pupil has been told that he will not be able to return to Mearns Academy to finish his education, the Evening Standard reports.
Savor this one yet again. “I know what you think, and I know what the authority thinks, I know the authority’s point of view is very clear,” the teacher is heard saying.
I have nothing more to add other than maybe this…
Jared Lorenzen had it all and then dug his grave with a fork, a spoon, and a knife. There are times when having it all becomes a curse. If you can’t set your own limits, having fame and fortune will allow you to literaly eat yourself to death. I’m seeing a metaphor for Cuckservative Amerika in this.
After the NFL, Lorenzen played in some indoor football leagues until he suffered a broken leg which ended his career. He struggled with his weight after retirement and admitted that he weighed over 500 pounds before he started “The Jared Lorenzen Project.”
“The Hefty Lefty.” Everyone just joshed, shucked and jived while this manchild literally destroyed himself. Good times, Man. Good times. Sometimes your friends just aren’t.
Payroll growth rebounded sharply in June as the U.S. economy added 224,000 jobs, the best gain since January and running contrary to worries that both the employment picture and overall growth picture were beginning to weaken. The unemployment rate edged up to 3.7% as labor force participation rose, according to the Labor Department.
There are many things in life you just can’t take care or handle. One you can choose to control is yourself. People came floosing back into the workforce in June. You may not be able to even make your municipal government care enough about you or your family to get the lead out of the local plumbing, but you can, at least; save up enough to move elsewhere.
Iran’s intelligence minister has said Tehran and Washington could hold talks only if the United States ended its sanctions and Iran’s top authority, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, gave his approval, state news agency IRNA reported on Thursday. “Holding talks with America can be reviewed by Iran only If (U.S. President Donald) Trump lifts the sanctions and our supreme leader gives permission to hold such talks,” Mahmoud Alavi said late on Wednesday.
An appropriate answer to this guy might be. “Who are you?” If the Supreme Leader is the only one who can make a decision in Iran, The Supreme Leader is the only one worthy of sitting at a negotiating table with empowered representatives of The US of Friggin’ Aye. Let the bootlickers jabber. If Iran won’t let their inelligence minister actually decide anything, than how smart of a guy can he really be?
Mary says so much by saying so little. You can sleep with whomever you want, Dawlin’. The only drawback is waking up next to him the next morning. Also, if every girl wants to sleep with the same five or six guys, and you actually land one of them, don’t be too terribly shocked if bad things happen.
1) Half of your friends will be banging him too. He’ll have the cellphone off a few times when you really need to talk to him. Like when you just missed a period or something…
2) The friends of yours that wanted him but lost out will read you to filth. They will undermine you with the “Just Joking” Sign out every single time.
3) The kids that you do manage to carry to term without aborting will never be acknowledged because he’s onto hotter and younger things. Ain’t no way he’ll chuck the hot dog down the hall if he’s got better options available.
That Mary has a issue here is a sign that she sees the truth, does not want to see the truth, and now has her Rationalization hamster running in overdrive. Ten years hence she will wonder why nobody wants to “Man Up” and marry her.
Did you spot it? Did you see the reference to that new and strange religion that used to be called Christianity but is now known as Judeo-Christianity? At this point in the article I roll my eyes and go into dismiss mode. I mean, if you can’t even get this right then you’re not worth my time. So I scroll down to see who wrote this drivel and would you believe it; no, I don’t think you will. It’s a priest!
If only this headline were accurate. Jews get a reputation for burrowing in and eating the foundations because they have been at it since the First Century AD.
Larry Niven once co-wrote a novella called “The Locusts.” It described the death of human civilization because of excess stupidity. Evolution literally went into reverse and we all became like chimps again. Could this be playing out in real life?
David Becker has released a new version of the World’s IQ. Each country has a score showing the cognitive abilities of their citizens, this being a blend of genetics and the environment of each country, particularly as regards education and health. The world’s global score is 82. This is 12th percentile rank on the Greenwich Mean Intelligence benchmark of IQ 100. As school teachers used to say in end of year reports: “Could do better”. What does IQ 82 mean in practical terms? The account below gives the achievements as shown in Western economies, with free education and usually free healthcare, and will need to be adjusted for other economies, probably downwards to account for poorer educational systems and the burdens of ill health.
Dumb and Dumberer. It’s like a Beck album out there. Except that Beck was just kidding. I can only think of one cure. Since it’s morally wrong to call differently-abled people less stupid, we need to ban all IQ Testing until we devise one that everyone, everywhere scores a 100 on. Then we’ll all be too dumb to figure out that everybody else is too dumb. At that point, tranquilo, Baby!
Finally, the Clintons are done.
The FireEye “Cyber Defense Summit brings together many of the world’s leading security experts, frontline heroes, government leaders, and executives from various industries to address the challenges of today’s threat landscape,” its website says. An email from FireEye sent Tuesday said “Due to an unforeseen circumstance, Secretary Clinton will no longer be able to participate in this year’s conference. Additional speakers will be announced as confirmed. We look forward to hosting attendees in October with a comprehensive program at our 10th annual event.”
On the Fourth of July 2019, millionaire African-American Nike brand ambassador and former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick posted a pre-Civil War quote by Frederick Douglass, accompanied by a graphic video, that attacks the United States as the worst nation in the history of the world.
We can’t stop you from leaving, Colin. Just as Ray Lewis couldn’t save your career. Colin’s just gotta’ colon. Why would a rich, important, and powerful guy like Colin stay here? I just don’t get the attraction. He’d be President of Zimbabwe tomorrow. He’d win in a walk. (Assuming he suffered no unfortunate accidents on the way to his polling station to vote.)
Fisher Ames was too good of a man for his times. He saw where the whole thing was going. The skull should have grinned. You can see from his writings below how Fisher Ames was John Derbyshire centuries before there was a Cuckservative Review. Here’s one choice quote that got him unpersoned straight down Winston Smith’s Memory Hole.
This bleak prophecy sounds irredeemably pessimistic. Yet the skull grinned. “Our disease,” Ames wrote, “is democracy. It is not the skin that festers—our very bones are carious and their marrow blackens with gangrene. Which rogues shall be first, is of no moment—our republicanism must die, and I am sorry for it… Nevertheless, though I indulge no hopes, I derive much entertainment from the squabbles in Madam Liberty’s family. After so many liberties have been taken with her, I presume she is no longer a miss and a virgin, though she may still be a goddess.”
Fighting athwart a dangerous myth is a dangerous game. I salute Fisher Ames for putting in a full 80-min shift and packing down against demotism. If Fisher Ames died on the 4th of July, it could be because what it came to represent ultimately killed him. RIP Fisher Ames.
Perhaps this musically sums up how Americans feel about living in exile here in Amerika….
