Mope gets points for being the first to send news.
This world is going to Hell and it’s not even bothering to wait for a handbasket.
I don’t need to tell y’all of the recent happenings in the Ukraine, Israel, Gaza, Iran, Iraq, Syria, etc. Short of living under a rock, I’m pretty sure everyone here is up to date with the state of several countries and their diplomacies. I’m not sure if that’s a word. However, I am very sure that our State Dept. sucks at it. Our Sec State acts like an over-indulging parent with spoiled children, asking them to behave or they won’t get candy, only to have those same children scream louder until they are given candy to shut them up. And the one kid that behaves and follows the rules is condemned as being oppressive to his siblings and punished. Honestly, I’m surprised our administration hasn’t instructed Israel to pee on itself as it is being attacked. I’m doubly surprised that the United Nations has not demanded a ceasefire from Israel or that they leave Gaza.
You know, it boggles the mind to think that the one honest and good thing the UN ever did together, is the one thing they wish to destroy.
Meanwhile, over by here in our Land of the Welfare and Home of the Undocumented (and I write that with as much snark as I possibly can), our borders are as porous as my broken colander, and just as useful. Children are being used as shields not just in Gaza, but here in the US, as well. You see, no one can be deported if they are with a child. ANY CHILD. The illegal immigrant does not have to be related to that child. The “undocumented” person only has to show up with the child. It’s no accident the influx has been so drastic. And since we are stupid enough to qualify children as anyone under 26, well… we have a problem. But nothing that MS-13 can’t handle, I’m sure.
Sometimes I feel this place should burn to the ground so we can start over.
By now y’all know so-called “Sgt” Bergdahl is now stateside. You also know Iraq is about to be taken over by ISIS, radicals that make Al Qaeda look like diplomats. You are also aware of the impoverished former Secretary of State’s new work of fiction. This week has been nothing but bad news for this administration. So the only recourse left for our Prez is to go visit a Sioux reservation in the Dakotas.
Six years after he promised to help with conditions in Indian Country.
Seriously, what is this I don’t even….
Go nuts trying to figure this out, because all I can see is our leader
letting helping the world burn.
Things are pretty sad around here still, but in moments of sadness, we find joy in little things. This past Wednesday, bikers from around North America came down to counter the “Million American March Against Fear”, known better by it’s former name, “Million Muslim March”. Look, I firmly believe that everyone has a right to petition the government, etc., etc. Personally, I was supporting their right to gather and assemble. Sure, Muslims gathering to rouse people to their plight on the day some of their religious brethren attacked our country and took us to war would show them to be in bad taste and crying like spoiled children, but that is why I wanted them to do it. Sunlight is a great disinfectant.
Anyway, both the bikers and the pieceful religion peeps decided to launch Facebook groups to garner support. Here are screenshots of the groups timeline banners. Please read closely the amount of “likes” each page has.
That’s the bikers’ group. The current count is 282,934 “likes”.
And this is the muslim group. The current count is 335 “likes”. JUST 335.
This is why I do think there is hope against this tide. Their support comes from trumped up political correctness, and we must start taking back our rights to vocabulary words and teach politicians that no one has a right not to be offended.
And we can start teaching the lesson by voting them out
No matter how hard some people try to make this a day of service, or a sale at a store, this is no ordinary day.
On September 11th, we always remember.
And eleven years after that, another attack which left four Americans murdered in Benghazi, Libya.

Forgetting lets evil win. Never, ever forget, and make sure to never let those who would choose to dismiss it forget, either.
North Carolina clangs its brass.
The state Senate on Friday passed a bill that would keep courts from recognizing Sharia law.
While proponents of the legislation said it would keep people safe from foreign laws, critics derided the bill as sending a message of intolerance and bigotry to followers of Islam.
Go ahead, laugh for a while. I did. It took me several minutes to stop. I mean, when the most intolerant religion-slash-political-ideology on this planet calls something “intolerant and bigoted”, you know you’re winning. The provision was actually attached to another measure that would impose stricter regulations on abortion providers in NC. But the libs were so busy trying to argue the abortion regulations that they didn’t even notice the itty bitty bill emphasizing Constitutional law as being supreme. It was rather glorious.
Now called House Bill 522, the provision’s contents haven’t changed. It reminds judges that the U.S. and N.C. constitutions are the law of the land and no foreign law can supersede them. Sometimes international laws are used in court as evidence before a judge, or in written opinions. But this bill would stop judges from considering foreign law when it violates a citizen’s constitutional rights.
I have a big problem with Shari’a law. A very big problem. That particular *ahem* rule of law tramples over my rights as a human being, not to mention as a woman, a mother and a Christian. And I find it hilarious that liberals are quick to defend its use over our rule of law, when its a religious rule of law. And by “hilarious”, I mean “sickening”. What about that whole “separation of church and state” stuff liberals are always shoving down our throats?
The danger doesn’t come from the legislation’s exact wording, said Omid Safi, a professor of religious studies at UNC-Chapel Hill. He contends this wave of anti-foreign-law legislation comes from a fundamental misunderstanding of Sharia law and a “bigoted” perception of Muslims.
“We would be delighted to have a conversation about what Sharia law actually is and what it is not,” he said. “It would be important, if we’re passing legislation on the topic, for (lawmakers who support the bill) to actually benefit from the expertise of people who might actually know something about the subject.”
Here’s the thing, Omar baby:
WE DON’T GIVE A SHIT WHAT SHARI’A IS OR ISN’T. WE ALSO DON’T GIVE A SHIT WHAT AN “EXPERT” ON IT HAS TO CONTRIBUTE. WHY? BECAUSE THE SUPREME LAW OF *THIS* COUNTRY IS THE U.S. CONSTITUTION. END OF FUCKING DISCUSSION.
And if you and your ilk don’t like it, go back to a country that does, fuck you very much.
I think the military needs to get this contract.
A company in northern Idaho has come up with a culturally sensitive approach. Jihawg Ammo has developed a proprietary system for infusing ballistic paint with pork. The special pork-infused paint is then applied to the bullets of loaded ammunition. The inclusion of pork in the paint makes the bullets haraam, or unclean. Under Islamic law, anyone who comes in contact with any haraam item is then unclean and must engage in a cleansing ritual. No unclean person can be admitted into Paradise. Do not pass Go. Do not collect 72 virgins. (From WND)
I ask you: how many of the islamojihadist jackwagons would take the risk, knowing they would NOT get into “Paradise”??

Why is Bin Laden’s son-in-law, Sulaiman Abu Ghaith being charged in a US criminal court, but Anwar Al-Awlaki, an American citizen, not given the same due process, instead being blown up by a drone strike?
Is it Opposite Day? Did I not get the freakin’ memo??
I picked a hell of a time to quit drinking.

And the administration thinks this is about a YouTube movie that has been in cyberspace for months?? Yeah, riiiiiiiight….
One of my favorite posts at Bring the Heat, Bring the Stupid are the videos of what Brad likes to call “‘Splodey”. Watching something blow up is therapeutic to me. Makes me feel all calm, and that all is right with the world, even if only for the few seconds of beautiful incendiary footage.
Seriously, doesn’t this make you feel good??
If I smoked, I would soooo need a cigarette right about now
