Joe Biden

So, it’s a travesty stopping refugees under Trump? Have the Democrats forgotten their actions after Vietnam?

Everyone on the left-wing is up in arms about denying refugees from Syria and other wog nations access to the US.

Democrats in particular are especially upset and while John Campbell might wet his panties that some Democrat Attorneys-General are p[osturing over the executive orders perhaps they should cast their minds back to their actions after the Vietnam War.

One old tusker is still around forgetting his own actions back in the day.

While there was recent rebellion against President Trump’s refugee, executive order, there were many liberals in 1975 associated with big-name Democrats against any Vietnam refugees wanting out of South Vietnam as it was absorbed by communists—there were millions! These left wingers were not even open to orphans coming to America.

California Governor Jerry Brown led the anti-refugee outfit that included well-known liberals such as Senator Joe Biden (D-DE), Congresswoman Elizabeth Holtzman (D-NY) and former-presidential “peace candidate” George McGovernRead more »

The Taito Principle

The last thing you want is a dodgy opponent to leave.

The longer they hang around, the longer you can beat the opposing party up.

Faced with a sprawling criminal indictment for corruption, and fighting for his political life, Sen. Robert Menendez should be a tempting target for Republicans. But rather than demanding Menendez resign, the GOP has stayed eerily quiet.

Republicans like Gov. Chris Christie say Menendez deserves his day in court. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has been mum. And the Republican National Committee is focused on other targets — namely Hillary Clinton.

The hands-off approach — while not a defense of the New Jersey senator — underscores a private GOP calculation: If Menendez lingers in office with the indictment hanging over his head, the worse it looks for Democrats.   Read more »

White House Correspondents’ Dinner 2014

I think the White House Correspondents’ Dinner is a great American tradition. I’d love to see a similar “roast” here one day. Here’s one of the pre-recorded segments.

Cunning, cunning bastards

The left wing likes to demonise the Koch brothers…especially some key Democrats.

But like all socialists who decry someone’s behaviour you find that upon closer inspection they are up to the same behaviour…even taking donations from the supposedly evil Koch brothers.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is trying to turn the Koch Brothers into the modern face of political evil, having mentioned them in the senate at least 134 times on the senate floor during the past few weeks. What he hasn’t explained is if they are so evil why do so many Democratic Party members of congress take their money?

During the past five congressional campaigns (2006-14) Koch money went to President Obama, Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, Dianne Feinstein, Mark Pryor, Chuck Schumer and other members of Congress. Read more »

Hypocrisy much?

Why are Jews so smart?

Perhaps this is why Farrar’s outfit are so smart:

During a speech on Tuesday in honor of Jewish American Heritage Month, U.S. Vice President Joe Biden told his audience that the Jews “have contributed greatly to America. No group has had such an outsized influence per capita,” inspiring the New York magazine headline, “Biden Praises Jews, Goes Too Far, Accidentally Thrills Anti-Semites.”

But cringe-inducing philo-Semitism is not just a U.S. phenomenon. In a recently published memoir, titled A Collection of Works Written During Leisure Time, Wu Guanzheng, who from 2002 to 2007 was China’s top anti-corruption official, reminisces about his time in Israel. “I bought some books on the Jewish people,” he writes. One, which he cites later, is written by someone with the name “Abraham” and called — you guessed it! — Why Are Jews IntelligentRead more »

Ten Assholes up for Re-election

Vice magazine has a post about 10 assholes up for re-election in 2012. it is a bi-partisan list with 5 Republicans and 5 Democrats.

In the American political landscape, there is a constant stream of assholes who deal in varying degrees of lies and bullshit. Lately, everybody has been focusing on the assholes at the top of the ticket, Mitt and Barack, but there are a slew of Republicans and Democrats up for re-election this Novemeber who personify what it means to be a human anal cavity.

I’ve singled out five Republican and five Democratic candidates who are the cream of the buttcrack crop.

Seems there is a healthy degree of disgust with the politician there.

The list is:

Don Young (R-Alaska)

Kirsten Gillibrand (D-New York)

To many, Kirsten Gillibrand is a liberal foot soldier. To others in the know, Kirsten profited off of her position in Congress to make money during the housing market collapse, then turned around and led the introduction of the STOCK Act, a bill which prevents members of congress from trading on inside information.

Lamar Smith (R-Texas)

Of all the GOP assholes in this post, Lamar Smith, a Representative of Texas’s 21st Congressional District, stands as one of the most powerful. He was the principle architect of SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) and H.R. 1981 (a federal pedophile database), both of which stem from his belief that IP content pirates and pedobears are the gravest threat to American national security. So what if both SOPA and H.R. 1981 could essentially lay the groundwork for an Orwellian state?

Joe Biden (D-Vice President)

Yes, Barack is the one running but Joe is still on the ticket. Considering his inability to keep his trap shut, Joe is a jackass of the first order. What sort of public figure claims to have known three presidents “intimately”? Tell us more, Joe. What was it like to have Bill Clinton inside you?

A few weeks ago in Danville, Virginia, Joe adopted a southern drawl, telling the African-American crowd that Mitt’s deregulatory policies would “put y’all back in chains.” The remark even got many Democrats wondering if Joe had some sort of break with reality. There are far better ways to criticize Mitt’s deregulatory policies without invoking slavery.

Michele Bachmann (R-Minnesota)

Pete Stark (D-California)

Todd Akin (R-Missouri)

Todd Akin is to the definition of “rape” what Bill Clinton was to the definition of “is.” His observations are, in a word, surreal. But maybe he’d feel differently about the whole thing if he was ever bent over and “legitimately” ass-blasted. Or maybe he’d find solace that, in terms of buttbabies, the body has a way of “shutting that whole thing down.”

Harry Reid (D-Nevada)

Harry Reid is a fuckin’ idiot, OK? The man occupies the Senate’s most powerful position and he’s been completely ineffective at communicating a progressive platform. Not only that, he would have probably lost his seat had the GOP voters not decided to nominate the loony, unelectable Sharron Angle to oppose him.

And while everyone knows Mitt Romney pays a criminally low tax rate, Harry very publicly suggested that Mitt hasn’t paid taxes at all in ten years. He cited an anonymous source at Bain Capital, who could just as easily have been a figment of his imagination.

James Sensenbrenner (R-Wisconsin)

Jimmy the Pig also crafted a piece of internet regulation known as IPPA (Intellectual Property Protection Act of 2006), which benefitted copyright holders at the expense of fair use, and then suggested that terrorists were selling bootlegged movies to finance their evil plots.

Jan Pauls (D-Kansas State Legislature)

Jan Pauls deserves special recognition for her anti-gay, pro-life stance, which are interesting views for a Democrat to hold. It should be no surprise that Jan is so devout, she lives in an abandoned church.

Better than “Gym Bunny”

The Secret Service gives their charges codenames, most get to choose the codenames themselves. Paul Ryan has chosen a cool one:

Paul Ryan has chosen “Bowhunter” as his Secret Service code name, in a nod to his passion for deer stalking.

The vice-presidential candidate’s choice echoes Mitt Romney’s own selection of “Javelin” and completes an election-year line up that includes Barack Obama’s “Renegade” and Joe Biden’s “Celtic”.

The Secret Service gives families codenames all beginning with the same letter, leaving Mr Ryan’s wife Janna with the gentler title of “Buttercup”, according to GQ.

As well as being a fitness fanatic, Mr Ryan is an avid hunter and stalks the woods of his native Wisconsin armed with a state-of-the-art bow and a quiver of arrows.

The 42-year-old congressman is the only passionate hunter on either ticket and has turned his hobby into an electoral asset.
In an interview for the cover story of this month’s Deer and Deer Hunter magazine he describes how his Winchester rifle was “shaking in my hands” as he killed his first deer at the age of 16.He also reveals how be bought his 10-year-old daughter a rifle for Christmas and brought all three of his three young children into the hunting stands with him.

Yep “Bowhunter” is much better than “Gym Bunny”
