"Help! Help! We're Being Repressed!"

Time To Troll The Sanctuary Asstards

h/t Kenny

(CALIFRUTOPIA)Border patrol agents are refusing to hand over illegal immigrants with felony warrants to police in California because they can’t be sure local authorities will return the criminal aliens to federal custody, according to a top border security official in San Diego.
Rodney Scott, the chief patrol agent in the Border Patrol’s San Diego Sector, said earlier this month that California’s statewide sanctuary law was undermining normal cooperation between his agency and local law enforcement.

Immigration authorities are chickenshitting this:

Turn the illegals on warrants over.
When local authorities don't return the favor, swear out warrants in federal court, and start arresting everyone from the chief of the agency down to the lowest-ranking turnkey for aiding and abetting, and charge and prosecute them in federal court for those felonies.

It will end their careers, and cancel their pensions, and after about...TWO, who get dragged off to the federal pen for five year pound-you-in-the-ass-prison sentences in general population, you won't have any problem getting 100% co-operation forever in CA, or any other state, forever.

The first two arrests should be the guy who opened the gate, and the head of the agency, and then work to the middle until you get everybody who touched them or had a hand in the decision process.
And if you manage to sweep up a few judges in the state Superior Court, so much the handier for the rule of law. Those judges should have ruled that the sanctuary law was unconstitutional in about 0.2 seconds, and nullified it the same day it went into effect. If they've now made themselves felons, we need them to serve time in federal prison too, to drive the point well home.
We have too many judges with sub-70 IQs anyways; it's time to thin that herd.

"Just following orders" as a legal defense, ran out of gas in Nuremberg in 1946.

That happy horseshit would cease in the span of lightning striking, and the two to twenty examples in federal prison would finally serve their communities in a most fitting way.

Out With A Bang

Pinned down by APD and self-detonated within minutes of authorities releasing the video of him dropping off the packages.

Yet, six months after the Vegas Shooting, we have not one single frame of video of the alleged shooter Official Patsy, or anyone else, entering, leaving or just being around the area, in the most heavily video-surveilled city in the world.

I'm sure that's just a coincidence, and doesn't indicate any official directed cover-up by the feds, who intervened in this case almost before the rounds had stopped landing on the concert.

And I have a bridge for sale, cheap.

Diversity Architecture: Good to The Last Drop

I get taking your daughters to work.
But if you're going to hire them, you might want to verify that they passed the math classes.

Otherwise, just let them answer the phones.

Color Me Shocked

This is why I can't even bother, just from various headlines so far this week.

1) FaceCrack is under investigation for stolen customers' data.

Look kids, if something on the interwebs is free, it's because YOU'RE the product.
Write this on your hand with a sharpie, lest ye forget.

2) A "self-driving" car from Uber has (predictably) had a catastrophic failure, killed a pedestrian, and Uber and everyone who touched that p.o.s. idea will be successfully sued for an amount sufficient to have bought a few hundred new cars forced to rely on their drivers watching where the hell they're going.

Tech fails. Like little incidents vis-à-vis RMS Titanic, LZ Hindenberg, and the Daichi Fukishima nuke plant should have clued you into. Self-driving cars are simply tree chippers with a handy conveyor ramp for pedestrians and drivers alike. Anyone deploying them or driving one should be receiving incoming small arms fire until they change shape or burst into flames.

3) A Democrat Communist congress shitweasel has called for an armed coup against President Trump.

Commies gonna commie.

4) Every politician with an opinion is predicting racial genocide in SAfrica, in 3, 2, ...

Like twenty years of being both the absolute and black-on-white rape capitol of the planet weren't a subtle hint there. People who've spent 20,000 years with bones in their noses are not going to try peaceful co-existence when you hand them the country on a platter. Rwanda was not an anomaly, and ZULU was a documentary.

5) Juvenile drama queens attempting to opine about Constitutional laws should be muzzled, and/or beaten to a bloody pulp.

Taking your cues about the bounds of natural law from dumbasses who eat Tide pods is its own reward. But if their Soros-funded jackassery manages to provide the impetus to revoke the 26th Amendment, it'll strike a blow for sanity in the republic.

We've also heard tales about people worried about the bombs going off in Austin.
Given it's the libtard whackjob capitol of the state, no points for guessing who'll wind up discovered responsible.
But authorities may also have to reluctantly grant the possibility that there are only 27M possible suspects, who live in the normal part of the Lone Star State, who've had enough of Austin nonsense, and are clearing their throats on the matter.
That will doubtless complicate the search for a culprit.
You'll know it's rednecks when someone starts shooting at refrigerators full of tannerite at Antifa rallies.
Just saying.

FBI Crook McCabe *Almost* Retires

h/t WRSA

(MORDOR) Attorney General Jeff Sessions late Friday night fired former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, a little more than 24 hours before McCabe was set to retire.

Sessions announced the statement in a statement just before 10 p.m., noting that both the Justice Department Inspector General and the FBI office that handles discipline had found "that Mr. McCabe had made an unauthorized disclosure to the media and lacked candor - including under oath - on multiple occasions."

Somebody at FBI has quite a wry sense of humor.
Well played, boys.

It's also surprising to see that Sessions was awake after suppertime, and still has a detectable pulse, let alone some vague idea of how to conduct business at the Dept. of Justus, but it was nice of him to finally make an appearance.

Oh, and "lacking candor" also goes by the less obfuscatory phrase "lied his ass off", and when it's under oath, the Federal Code has another clever term for the action:

Perjury. - 18 USC 1621

Let's see what he's willing to cough up on his minders in exchange for not doing the whole nut on 5 years in federal PYITA prison.

An indictment, which should be a virtual certainty, would pretty well kill his credibility for any testimony in front of Mueller, unless the special prosecutor wants to rack up a count of subornation of perjury himself.

No wonder Shrillary's getting drunk by noon every day.

Vegas Update - Lotta Good Questions, Still No Answers

h/t Gateway Pundit

Vegas radio host Wayne Root has a list of twenty things in the incident that still don't add up. (Which would be ALL of them.) 
#1 Rambo: 
How did an overweight, out of shape, 60-year old, anonymous guy (on no one’s radar) with no military training and no military or law enforcement history become Rambo overnight? He carried out this plot with no help? Got hundreds of pounds of weapons to his room? He broke open a hurricane-strength 800- pound window? Set up sniper-type guns? Pulled off worst mass shooting in America’s history with no training, no help? Even though the one over-riding theme of every survivor/witness I’ve spoken to, or heard from is…they saw or heard multiple shooters. Yet the FBI and Vegas police immediately discounted this theory. Why?

The girlfriend connection has always been fishy, Paddock paying off a $100K debt a couple of days before the shooting is damning evidence that he never did it nor planned it, and Trump's Twitter silence on this whole thing has been deafening, IMHO.

I have spent a literal lifetime shooting down black helicopter theorists, because most of them are psychotic lunatards, but this time, nothing else makes any sense whatsoever, whereas a cover-up of a terrorist plot makes perfect sense, at every step of the incident.

For my money, it's far more likely there were other or multiple shooters, Paddock wasn't any of them, and the answer to the mystery lies four flights up from that 32nd floor suite, where Saudi terror-loving princes cavorted in a private hotel-on-top-of-a-hotel, and where authorities never investigated, but which could have held an entire terror cell unencumbered and unseen, done the entire deed, and walked out at their leisure hours or days later. Probably exactly like they did.

Paddock was just the dead patsy left behind to give a semblance of tying up loose ends for the easily bamboozled.

That, to me, makes one helluva lot more sense than anything that's been floated thus far.

By The Way...

I don't get caught up in the day-to-day numbers much, but this one sticks out.
Some one of you looking at this between 1300-1500 PDT will be the blog's 2,000,000th visitor.
It took about 8 1/2 years to get to the first million.
It's taken about 14 months to get to the second one.
Perhaps I'm getting the hang of this.

For all those visits, as well as links, comments, and general interest in what I do here, my sincere thanks. I hope I've made the visit worth the trip and the time.

Time To Feed The 'gators

PALM BEACH GARDENS — A Jupiter teenager said his Muslim faith led him to fatally stab a boy on his 13th birthday and injure two others at a sleepover Sunday night in BallenIsles Country Club, Palm Beach Gardens police said during a 2 p.m. news conference.
Corey Johnson, 17, was arrested Monday after he reportedly confessed to stabbing the three people while he spent the night at a friend’s home in the gated community off PGA Boulevard. 
No words from the retards in the FL legislature on raising the knife-buying age to 25, or banning any mosque that holds more than 10 members.

Florida: Making Mississippi and Alabama look sensible and intelligent for 200 years.


Crookedest DoJ In History

Don't stop with Tillerson, Mr. President.
It's time to fire Sessions, Rosenstein, and Mueller, for incompetence and/or violations of black-letter federal law.

Tell Trey Gowdy his retirement plans just went in the shitter, and he's the new Acting AG, effective immediately.

And then start shuttering the FBI, and laying people off.

Addendum, from comments at WRSA:
Sessions wanted to have the AG job, but he doesn't want to do the AG job. Move him over to Border Patrol or ICE, or just put him out to pasture.
Shitcan crooked/criminal Deputy AG Rosenswine too, and every other crooked Obozo holdout at the Dept. of JustUs. Terminate Mueller's interminable fake investigation, and investigate him for suborning perjury and misprision of felony.

Then purge the FIBs of everyone, down to the level where you find guys who want to actually go after actual, y'know, criminals.
(And if that ends up being 5 guys there, or even none, I'm okay with that too.)

And trim the ranks of federal law enforcement allowed to form tactical teams, carry guns at all, or make arrests to just the US Marshals, the Secret Service, and the FBI. DOE can arm nuclear plant guards and prison guards can carry, but only on the premises, Customs and Border Patrol can carry on duty at the border and ports of entry, Park Service guys can carry only in federal parks, and the Coast Guard is still the Coast Guard. Everybody else writes tickets and summonses, unarmed, or else has to tag up and bring actual federal cops. Everybody else carrying at 97 other federal agencies, turn them in, tomorrow. And make that policy federal law, ASAP.

While I would love to see la Coulter put in the post, mainly because Joy Behar and the rest of the coven on The Spew would have immediate heart attacks, far more likelier is Trey Gowdy.

An experienced state and federal prosecutor, no tolerance for bullshit,  and he knows how to prosecute people, which is the sin qua non of the AG post. Best of all, he's actually trying to get the hell out of politics for good, and doesn't want the job, which should be a requirement for every cabinet post there is, in perpetuity. Drag Jason Chaffetz out of retirement and make him the Deputy AG. Then sit back with a wall of chips and popcorn, sipping cool libations, and enjoy the show that follows.

Call it Operation Sanity.

A year of dithering and recusing himself marks Sessions as a bumbling jackass, and the time is long overdue for him to go, for good.

Shrillary: Still Fit As A Fiddle

Uber/Lyft v. Oakland. Bring Popcorn.

h/t Mike

"Government has no native criminal class. Except politicians." - Mark Twain

Over at  Cold Fury, Mike (who also drives for Uber) notes the ceaseless efforts of petty dictatorships to impinge on and steal from others' economic activity.
OAKLAND, Calif.—A local city council member is beginning to float the idea of taxing ride hailing companies like Uber and Lyft as a possible way to raise millions of dollars and help pay for local public transportation and infrastructure improvements.
If the effort is successful, Oakland could become the first city in California—Uber and Lyft’s home state—to impose such a tax. However, it’s not clear whether Oakland or any other city in the Golden State has the authority to do so under current state rules.
Councilwoman Rebecca Kaplan told the East Bay Express that she wants the city council to put forward a ballot measure that would tax such rides.
“The power to tax is a separate power regardless of whether or not you can regulate something,” said Kaplan in an interview with the alt-weekly. “They’re using our streets to do business, and we don’t currently have any revenue from it.”

So many lies. Where to start?

1) It's Oakland. Something so bad even San Francisco is embarrassed about it.
2) The city is getting their taxes from it,  they're just trickled down from the state.
Exactly as noted, the vehicle is taxed, the registration and licensing is taxed, the gasoline is taxed (and taxed {and taxed}),  the tires are taxed, the repairs and maintenance are taxed, the driver's income and the company's business profits are taxed, and there are bridge tolls collected by the bridge trolls, all of which goes into money for Oakland.
But, they've already spent that sinecure on payoffs to cronies, and they want more.

But this is government, so they won't be asking like Oliver Twist.
They'll be beating the taxes out of we, the peasants, like the Sheriff of Nottingham.

What Oakland hasn't figured out how to do - yet - is insert a shop vac directly into the companies' tills, and decide how much, if any, of their own income Oakland might decide the company ought to be refunded, subject to capricious change at whim.

So, as usual,  a politician is caught lying outright, because her lips were moving.

Wire. Lamppost. Politician.
Assembly required.

And she's too late to the party, because now Lyft and Uber are no longer scrappy Little Guys, but instead have become Big Business, and have the means to evade and stomp on this nonsense by dint of huge customer base, and corporate warchests.

Worst case, their drivers will simply lie and evade the taxes entirely, and Oakland will be left trying to fight black market drivers, which they have neither the will nor the ability to thwart.
Like gypsy cabbies, they'll simply go decentralized.
Everyone now knows that one could come up with a new app where riders post needs, and drivers fulfill them, cash is exchanged, and government is completely cut out of the deal. It's a bureaucrat's black market nightmare of brobdingnagian proportions.
"WHAT?!? You mean, the economy can move along, and there's NO WAY for us to steal some of that money for ourselves? ZOMG THE HORROR!!!!!" - said every politician ever minted
Any enforcement actions will be like low-level arrests in the drug war: merely opportunities for advancement for everyone else.

Go ahead, government @$$tards, slug that tar-baby for all you're worth.
Tell us how it works out for ya.

I Say Fruit, Not Hildebeast, Is On The Menu...

Boo! Happy Halloween!

Some folks think the (D)s are so insane, they run two-time loser and serial felon Shrillary again in 2020.
I doubt it, and suspect that since her freshness date was up in 1993, and the last campaign nearly killed her, she's never coming back again.

I could, of course, be wrong, but that's where I'd put my chips.

If both Trump and the economy are as healthy in 2020 as they are now, the Democrats know they haven't got a snowball's chance in hell of beating him, so they nominate some flaming whacktard as a Mondale-esque sacrificial lamb in two years.

They do this to push the discussion far to the left.

Then, when he's gone in 2024, they put up someone a whisker less radical, and the media paints it for the low-information voters as a massive shift to the middle.
This also gives them six years instead of two to regroup and get their collective crap in one bag.

The don't want an old white woman, sooner or later on.

They want someone brown, a woman, a globull warmist.
Ideally, all of the above.

In short, they're looking for some pliable talentless hack, and they've got six years to find the talent and groom them. What they want, is an Unripe Pomegranate.

Old Guys Kick Ass

If you'd like to let Hollyweird know what you think about gun control, or you'd just like to get some entertainment value for your buck, there are two things you can do this weekend.

Thing One, is go see Bruce Willis(61) in Death Wish, now in wide release.

Bad Guy thinks he's sorry. He's about to be sorrier.
A well-written and perfectly updated remake of the Charles Bronson iconic original that breaks the Remake Curse, and re-imagines the original very nicely, without making you wish the writer and director were part of the final body count. Considering the source material, that's no mean feat.

There's no need for spoilers, just go see the movie. If you saw the original one, you know what you're getting. If you didn't, go back and watch it later on. First, go see this one.

Thing Two, is drop by the local DVD/BD counter, and grab The Foreigner, if you missed it when it came out last year. Or, even if you saw it.

Wait till you see the other guys.

With non-Bond Pierce Brosnan in the way of London Chinese restaurant owner Jackie Chan(62) in his quest for answers amidst The Troubles, this one hooks you, and then drives the point home relentlessly.

Jackie Chan is still The Man, from the beginning to the end of this movie.

As Tommy Lee Jones once said onscreen,  "This is not the work of a cook."
I'd even buy it at WalMart. Jackie Chan is the only thing made in China in that whole store that's worth the full price you pay, and then some.

Both flicks: Both thumbs up. No disappointments, and worth the time and the ticket.
This is what we go to the movies for.

(For comparison, at their age, John Wayne was making The Green Berets, Hellfighters, and True Grit, and winning his Best Actor Oscar.)

Old guys kick ass.

Important Reminder

h/t Kenny


Remember, kids, water is in the blue HDPE jugs, diesel is in the yellow safety cans.

Socialism: More! Harder! Faster!

So, apparently, some clueless bint at the WaPoo decided the title of this post was the Great Way Forward for herself and her fellow travelers, being good communists in all senses but for occupying the requisite casket:
Hanging on and hoping for the best is certainly one approach to rescuing the best of liberalism from its discontents, but my answer is admittedly more ambitious: It’s time to give socialism a try.

And then Mike at Cold Fury laid waste to her codswallop like a pack of Rottweilers on chicken with a broken wing.

An excerpt:
No it isn’t. It’s time to for you to rethink a few things, admit a few things—LEARN a few things. The rest of us are way ahead of you, and we’re getting a little tired of waiting for the short bus to finally catch up.
Astoundingly, this WaPo op-ed seems not to be parody or satire. It’s really kind of pitiful at this point; the stubborn fools really, truly have nothing else. NOTHING. The Left is so completely mired in the gooey morass of pure folly they couldn’t be dug out with a backhoe. All they can think to do is keep eyes dutifully averted from their ideology’s manifest failures, hoping against hope the rest of us don’t see, and just…go right on regurgitating the same tired, irrelevant crap.

And then he gets medieval.

It's masterful.
