Layers And Layers Of Fact-Checkers Part MCMLV

Courtesy of MSN, here’s a little historical tidbit that I’ll bet you didn’t know:

General McClellan and Union forces won the Siege of Yorktown in 1862 to win the Revolutionary war!

Boy, that Lincoln guy just didn’t give George all the credit he deserved…

On Slide 10 they have Howard Hughes…dying in a plane crash?

Dare I say “Fake News”?

After 50+ Years This Still Never Gets Old

THREE YEARS of CNN’s Life

…spent spooling up lurid RUSSIA RUSSIA RUSSIA spy fantasies, and what did it get them in return?

Bupkiss.

And probably 4 more years of Trump.

😀

Can’t…Stop…

…DANCIN”!!!

And the Mueller Report Is In

Some folks are…upset.

Happy Burfday THS!

Bestest Sister Evuh!!

Cognitive Dissonance

When you hear the WARMING IS APOCALYPTIC AND NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE crowd.

And then you read a little more before you go to bed and stumble on stuff.

Huh.

When Your Sneering Brussels Overlords

…no longer feel the need to manage their contempt for you and revel in it openly, it’s time to leave.

When the thought of your once proud, independent nation brings a snarl to the face of the unelected bureaucrat who holds your identity as British in his hands, it’s time to leave.

When you are nothing but contemptible for wanting the freedom of self-determination restored to you?

GET. OUT.

Brexiteers will have a ‘special place in hell’ declares EU chief Donald Tusk
The EU Council President’s extraordinary speech comes as talks remain deadlocked 51 days before Brexit – with Northern Ireland leaders saying they have “genuinely no idea” what Theresa May’s plan is after meeting her

Brexiteers will have a ‘special place in hell’, EU chief Donald Tusk declared today in an extraordinary, furious speech.

The European Council President lashed out at top Tories as talks remain deadlocked just 51 days before the UK is supposed to leave.

It Had to KILL CBS News

…to put this poll result up.

And if CBS was uncomfortable, heads HAD to have been EXPLODING at CNN with these results.

At the very least, the anguished gnashing of filed fangs had to be music to the ears of God.

The Clever, Edgy, Dressed in White

This Will Never Get Old

What an absolute unprepared idiot he is.

But hey, he has a “boo”.

Lemme Repeat Myself

For the record:

I was a 28 year old Marine in 1984.

Never once did I see black face, nor did I expect to, frankly.

My friends and I spent our 20’s shitfaced, not black faced.

As for Homophobic MAGA Attackers in Chicago

…curiouser and curiouser…

?

Oh, I for SURE would have dropped that nasty thing, attack, noose, or no.

Maybe THAT’S what the “bleach” was for.

See: “Schadenfreude”

This is just delicious.

Call it Revenge of the Babies, or whatever makes you feel good. It’s an epic comeuppance.

VURT Da FURK

…does this gibberish even MEAN?!?!

These fresh young Progressive anti-Semites in Congress are just delightful!

At least I can understand the THIS new Congress…PERSON. And well educated, because Israel is EXACTLY like Iran. Ask any gay Israeli man who’s ever been thrown off a roof or hung for simply being gay, for starters.

And don’t EVEN get me started on the baby killing monsters, who are now saying we mis-interpreted the baby killing statements we heard on video, which – also amazingly – were heard by Republican members of Congress, yet NOT A SINGLE DEMOCRAT.

How…curious.

It’s been a GREAT WEEK for the Left/Democrats/Progressives.

Sanctioned Balkanization

Can’t Believe Producers Left It In

The. Burn.

Scorching hot as a Mexican volcano.

The Little Native American Drummer Boy

…Nathan Phillips, is a miserable piece of shit and doesn’t qualify in the spirit of the word “veteran.”

No, he wasn’t a “recon RANGER.”
No, he NEVER deployed, “Vietnam era” or not. (So much for his moaning “When I come home, those times, I got spit on & called a baby killer.” Come HOME? HE. NEVER. LEFT.)


(FOIA response to Don Shipley via Phil Kerpan)
He was a Marine Corps RESERVIST, drilled for 2 years, went active duty for two more…

…and THEN spent some of his time UA/AWOL. Did brig time. (For the uninitiated, that means JAIL.) Acronym decoder: AAHA – Awaiting Higher Authority, CNFT – Confinement

For his distinguished record of “service,” he was discharged as a FUCKING PRIVATE after 4 years. An accomplishment – especially in the reserves – it takes some major screw-ups to pull off.

And now he intimidates 14 year olds.
Who coulda seen THAT coming?

SCOTUS UpHolds Transgender Military Ban

BREAKING: Supreme Court allows transgender military ban to go into effect

(CNN) — The Supreme Court is allowing President Trump’s Transgender Military ban to go into effect.

The Justices did not rule on the merits of the case but will allow the ban to go forward while the lower courts work through it. LGBT activists call the ban cruel and irrational. The policy blocks individuals who have been diagnosed with a condition known as gender dysphoria from serving with limited exceptions. It was first announced by President Trump in July 2017 via twitter.

Good.

The military isn’t a RIGHT. It exists to protect this country, and the person who seeks to join must bring something to the military, not the other way around. There are a million reasons one cannot join: from flat feet to diabetes to epilepsy and so on. Your fervent wish to be something you are not – a purely personal decision vice medical necessity – at lifetime cost and expense to the country you supposedly wish to serve while being relieved of myriad responsibilities normally a requirement of service, does not grant you special status over those who never asked for their disqualifying afflictions. And are forbidden from that same service.

ADDENDUM:

Previous detailed Swilling posts on transgenders in the military are here and here.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BINGLEY!!!

You arrived on THIS day…um…MANY years ago.

And what a wonderful…um…MANY years it has been since.

Get Off the Bus, Gus

Oh, admittedly yesterday was a GLORIOUS exercise in GOTCHA, played at troll level “Jedi Master.”

I am still basking in the glow of the beauty of both the act itself and the timing.

Gads. I’m starting the day smiling.

This is GOOD stuff.
