Stan Isaacs brings the stupid

Is this guy really getting paid to pen this sort of consummate idiocrity?

This may come as a surprise to some people, but the U.S. Constitution does not specify the size of the Supreme Court.
...
So if nine justices is not writ in stone, the embattled President Obama should deal with this hostile conservative/reactionary court by adding three members.
I suppose this sort of unrivaled gibberish should be expected from someone who doesn't recognize that 9+3=12, and having twelve justices doesn't lend itself to tiebreakers. 

So, since we have a few Keystone bloggers here, would any of you care to explain how, with a state unemployment rate of almost nine percent, Stanbecile still has a job?  Is the Philadelphia Inquirer such a miserable place to work that the only people they can hire are cretins with a poorer understanding of math than my four-year-old?  I'm fairly certain that if I walked in with a box of a dozen chocolates, and asked her if they could be divided evenly with her brother, I'd receive a correct answer.  Yeah, she might have to count on her tiny fingers, but she's not getting paid by a major metropolitan newspaper to do simple fucking addition, is she?

Give us Jake Tapper already, ABC

Elizabeth Vargas' performance on ABC's This Week didn't exactly instill me with great confidence in her objectivity:

How are we going to...empower Congress to be able to pass the sweeping kinds of changes that we need in the country?

ISeeWhatYouDidThere. Um, aren't they empowered by, you know, having massive majorities in both houses? Yes, clearly the problem is that Congress has too little power.  Good gravy...

Media Research Center has more.

Isn't the obvious pick for the slot the only guy at ABC who is even cognizant of the idea of journalistic integrity?  Stop screwing around with Vargas and Baba Wahwah.  Give us Tapper!

Smart Foreign Policy (tm) in action: Obama refuses to endorse British sovereignity over Falkland Islands

The lyrics of Stephen Sondheim’s Send in the Clowns captures the comedy of errors which the British establishment now finds itself in with regard to the Falklands. How could they have guessed that the man they had been waiting for, the person who they assumed would be so implicitly like them — their soulmate — would turn to be so different from what they imagined? UK pundits are still shock over the administration’s announcement that it will remain neutral in any dispute between Argentina and Britain over the Falklands. The London Times summarizes things succinctly:

Washington refused to endorse British claims to sovereignty over the Falkland Islands yesterday as the diplomatic row over oil drilling in the South Atlantic intensified in London, Buenos Aires and at the UN.

Despite Britain’s close alliance with the US, the Obama Administration is determined not to be drawn into the issue. It has also declined to back Britain’s claim that oil exploration near the islands is sanctioned by international law, saying that the dispute is strictly a bilateral issue.

As usual, the administration’s given reason for its actions is that “Bush did it”, only in this case it is “Ronald Reagan did it”, even though he didn’t. The Times continues:

Senior US officials insisted that Washington’s position on the Falklands was one of longstanding neutrality. This is in stark contrast to the public backing and vital intelligence offered by President Reagan to Margaret Thatcher once she had made the decision to recover the islands by force in 1982.

He really does have it in for the British doesn't he? Way to maintain relations with our closest ally there Mr. President. Can't wait until the next time we need British support on something.

I really messed this up the first go around - I didn't properly attribute. Fixed it now. Sorry for implying I wrote the quoted portion.

My Healthcare Message To The Left

As the Democrats seem bound and determined, electoral bloodbath be damned, to ram Obamacare through, I decided to offer one last message to them:



Yes, fuck you lefties. Fuck you for what you are trying to do to my family and my country. And may you never run into me if the shitty care you intend to impose upon us leads to ill events happening to the people I know and love.

HAARP destroys another country: Massive 8.8 earthquake in Chile

Tsunami warnings across Pacific region.



Where is Jesse Ventura when you need him?

Why would the US Government target Chile's second largest city for destruction so soon after destroying Haiti? Could it have something to do with the new regional organization being formed by Cuba and Venezuela?

These are questions that mus be answered before this fearsome weapon is deployed upon a helpless world again.
The quake downed buildings and houses in Santiago and knocked out a major bridge connecting the northern and southern sections of the country.

It struck at 3:34 a.m. local time and was centered about 200 miles southwest of Santiago, at a depth of 22 miles, the U.S. Geological Survey reported. The epicenter was some 70 miles from Concepcion, Chile’s second-largest city, where more than 200,000 people live.

Phone lines were down in Concepcion as of 7:30 a.m. and no reports were coming out of that area. The quake in Chile was more powerful than the magnitude 7.0 earthquake that caused widespread damage in Haiti on Jan 12, killing at least 230,000, earthquake experts reported on CNN International.

...

Eyewitnesses on Facebook and Twitter reported that the quake was felt from Japan to Argentina. The quake struck at the end of the Chilean summer vacation, with hundreds of thousands of people expected to be traveling back home this weekend.
Seriously, this is a huge quake. Historically it would be about the 4th most powerful ever. The most powerful being a 9.5 quake in the same area back in 1960. That killed 1700 people. So far the death toll is low compared to Haiti. I believe that is due to lower population density and better building codes. That doesn't mean the quake won't be devastating. If you are a prayer keep them in your prayers in you are a donater the Red Cross will probably have something set up soon, so will World Vision and Doctors without Borders I'm sure.

Party like it's 2008

Did you see the Hot Air post on the "Coffee Party" movement?  If you didn't, their founder, Annabel Park is claiming that it's an alternative to the Tea Party movement that's based on stuff like "cooperation" between the parties in Washington.

Um, yeah. You may want to sit down for this, but it turns out that Park is (GASP!) an Obamaton...



Well, I guess she had some foresight there about Obama taking over bankrupt companies, so she's got that going for her.

By the way, it took me about ten seconds to find that video and decide to mention that Park was an Obama supporter going back to the 2008 primaries. Which was apparently too difficult for WaPo Staff Writer Dan Zak, who never mentioned it in his article, though he took pains to mention that another of the new Coffee Party group's members, Alan Alborn, voted for George W. Bush and Obama. Yeah.

It's bi-partisan, see?

Update: Gee, Ms. Park sure is a real non-partisan voice for Change in Washington. How did that (and by "that," I mean her previous association with an organized leftist convention) possibly slip Dan Zak's attention?

Well, we may never know.

Minitru

Nothing major, just another example of why I started calling them Minitru a little over a year ago.
First, we've all seen Hot Air's story about Rubio's credit card.
I hadn't read it earlier (I usually don't read the Capt's posts unless I can't get to sleep), so I did when I saw the update. I'm waiting for the hockey game to start and nothing's going on here.
Lo and behold, the article was substantially rewritten, removing much of what Capt Ed quoted, with no mention of how or why.
What was left was pretty typical of Minitru.

They manage to find a bunch of people to say bad things about Rubio.
Like Ana Navarro, "Rubio contributor" who's 'concerned'. Yup, she contributed to him, she gave more to a Dem congressman.
It's also disingenuous to call her a "contributor" she's a pac treasurer and bundler.
The Pac is "Friends of Liz Cheney" but I can't find any money going in or out of that pac anywhere from  2002 to today.
Personally, she gives to both Dems and the GOP.

The rest of the quoted are similarly misrepresented, including the last quote by "U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Weston" who is also 'concerned', she is not listed as a Democrat.

They do get a quote from a Republican
Attorney General Bill McCollum, the Republican front-runner to replace Crist as governor, said of releasing the credit-card records: ``To open this at the present time could compromise a criminal investigation.''

Heh, maybe I'm just paranoid (well, too paranoid) but that surely looks as though they're trying to imply that Rubio is the target of that investigation. What is the investigation? I'd guess it's who leaked it, if Rubio was the target that would have been the headline, the lead and every other paragraph would have included that.

I used to call them the NYTimesWashPostCNNABCCBSNBCetc., but they're just Minitru anymore and just as dangerous.

Another, smaller, Minitru moment.
My alarm clock is set to WTOP (traffic, weather, conventional leftism), this morning it came on to one guy saying something about Obama's "We're not campaigning" as the other two tools laughed, laughed, laughed at McCain being all bitter about not winning and Obama slapping him down.
These are "news" guys, not opinion. I mean, they're called "news", but like the rest of Minitru, they have ceased even pretending to be neutral even as they screach about how they are neutral.

Duh.

Apparently, when you take thousands of young men and women at or near the height of perfect human physical condition and pack them into a dorm for two weeks they have a lot of sex.

You don't say.  My mind has been fucking blown. 

I'll put it this way, if I was 22 years old, able to lift my body weight with one arm, and surrounded by the female athletes  I see at these olympics, I wouldn't be  reading a fucking book in my hotel room every night. 

I'd by looking for the UK curling team.  Like a viking.

Well, that's a new way to look at it

Apparently, if you have doubts about the validity of the AGW theory, you might as well believe that O.J. Simpson didn't murder anyone.  No, really.

That's what this guy says, anyway. Note that the word "scientist" doesn't seem to be mentioned anywhere in his bio. Funny, that.

Do you take blood pressure meds?

If the answer is yes, you might want to gulp down a handful or two before reading this post by former federal prosecutor Andy McCarthy:

The Obama Democrats have outdone themselves.

 

While the country and the Congress have their eyes on today’s dog-and-pony show on socialized medicine, House Democrats last night stashed a new provision in the intelligence bill which is to be voted on today.It is an attack on the CIA:the enactment of a criminal statute that would ban “cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment.” (See here, scoll to p. 32.)

 

The provision is impossibly vague — who knows what “degrading” means? Proponents will say that they have itemized conduct that would trigger the statute (I’ll get to that in a second), but it is not true.The proposal says the conduct reached by the statute “includes but is not limited to” the itemized conduct. (My italics.) That means any interrogation tactic that a prosecutor subjectively believes is “degrading” (e.g., subjecting a Muslim detainee to interrogation by a female CIA officer) could be the basis for indicting a CIA interrogator.

There's much, much more at the link, and it's all fucking disgraceful. Oh, I'm sorry, I meant to say smart, strong.

Dear California

Fuck you. FUCK YOU. FUCK YOU. FUCK YOU. FUCK YOU. FUCK YOU. Fuck you and your fucking fuckpuddle of fuckingly fucked up fucking fuckbag of fuck.Fuck your fucking fucked up set of fucking priorities and general fuckheadedness in the fucking face of fuckingly fucked up economic and budgetary times.

The rest of next week will be officially swear-word free if both houses approve the resolution {fuck that shit. Fuck it with the fuckstained fuckbag of fuck-ed}.

The resolution by Assemblyman Anthony Portantino, D-La Canada Flintridge (fuck him. And fuck that area.-ed}, was inspired by a South Pasadena teenager, McKay Hatch, who founded a No Cussing Club {I guess Student Council was too butch for him-ed}at his junior high school in 2007. His efforts to stamp out profanity have generated international attention, with 35,000 members joining the No Cussing Club's Web site {oooohhhh....I now have a purpose in life!-ed}.

Portantino said the California Legislature -- known for imposing strict clean air and clean water laws {yeah, and how has that fucked up the state?-ed}-- is the first state legislative body in the nation to consider a statewide profanity-free week {fucking losers-ed}.

Hatch, now 16, said he sees a link between cussing and drug use, bullying and other harmful behavior {prove it, junior. I curse, and yet have never used drugs-ed}. A cuss-free world would be a more harmonious one, he said {and it would be more fucking lame, antiseptic and fucked up with the fist of Fuckitude-ed}.

"I want to bring as much awareness as I can to people about their language and how they're speaking to each other," {hey. I'm fucking wellfuckingaware of how I speak-ed}Hatch said in a telephone interview Wednesday as he was headed to Sacramento. "We need to stop tearing people down and uplift them instead." {that is some weapons grade naivete-ed}

Portantino said his resolution is simply a guideline, a reminder to "act like you're at your grandma's house." {so I get to sleep on the couch in the lobby in the middle of a party and get ass ripped drunk on a case of beer? Sign me up!-ed} There would be no enforcement mechanism included. {typical. Stupid fucking hippies-ed}

Good luck, kid. I admire your pluck. As for the Assembly, they can fuck off wit their failed budgetary plans.

Kirsten Bowie

Some people seem to hate Kirsten Dunst, I dig her.
I think it was John Derbyshire who said (when she was around 18 ) that every day was a good day because he had a chance of seeing her nipples on tv.



Semi-related, I had to prove I was over 18 but I forget my password and email address when I opened a youtube account so now I have to, for the first time ever on the intertubes, not be Veeshir somewhere.
That pisses me off.

Forgot the H/T, gandalf23 (I think it's a hereditary position) and fixed stupid "smiley face" thing.

Behold Our Future, Vol. MML

Hey, doesn't socialized medicine sound great? What say you, Brits?

The report, which follows reviews by the Care Quality Commission and the Department of Health, said that “unimaginable” suffering had been caused. Regulators said last year that between 400 and 1,200 more patients than expected may have died at the hospital from 2005 to 2008.

Andy Burnham, the Health Secretary, said there could be “no excuses” for the failures and added that the board that presided over the scandal had been replaced. An undisclosed number of doctors and at least one nurse are being investigated by the General Medical Council and Nursing and Midwifery Council.

Mr Burnham said it was a “longstanding anomaly” that the NHS did not have a robust way of regulating managers or banning them from working, as it does with doctors or nurses. “We must end the situation where a senior NHS manager who has failed in one job can simply move to another elsewhere,” he added. “This is not acceptable to the public and not conducive to promoting accountability and high professional standards.”

A system of professional accreditation for senior managers would be considered and the Mid Staffordshire trust might lose its foundation status.

Some NHS chief executives have received six-figure redundancy packages or moved to other trusts despite poor performance. Martin Yeates, the former chief executive at Mid Staffordshire, received pay rises that took his annual salary to £180,000, while standards at the trust deteriorated.

The Liberal Democrats claimed that he had also received a payoff of more than £400,000 after stepping down last March, though Mr Burnham said he had received “no more than his contractual entitlement”.

Yeah, that sounds aweome. Sign me up.
