Here Come The Brownshirts!

Their pants are brown too, from involuntary cowardice-related sphincter release.A still from the above. He seems nice, doesn't he?
And now, let's go to an imaginary person at the Imaginary News Desk for the all-too-real headlines:

Today In "Christian" Sharia

Multiple religionist & rocker of a comb-over Marco Rubio has many, many faces, doesn't he?
Srsly, he'll be Trumping that mess before you know it.
Republican presidential candidate Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) said in a video posted Tuesday that he believes people of faith should ignore laws that violate their religion.

Rubio told the Christian Broadcasting Network that no law is "settled," making reference to Supreme Court decisions that legalized same-sex marriage.

“In essence, if we are ever ordered by a government authority to personally violate and sin — violate God’s law and sin — if we’re ordered to stop preaching the Gospel, if we’re ordered to perform a same-sex marriage as someone presiding over it, we are called to ignore that," Rubio said. "We cannot to abide by that because government is compelling us to sin."

“So when those two come into conflict, God’s rules always win,” he added.

That rhetoric deviates a bit from when Rubio weighed in on defiant Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis, who was jailed because she refused to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, earlier this year. Rubio said in September that the clerk's office had the "governmental duty to carry out the law," but that there should be religious freedom protections for individuals working in the office.
Still fascinated wondering if these clowns realize they're rank hypocrites, just don't care, think it's O.K. if it promulgates their ridiculous fairy tales (Milk before meat, right Mormons?) or what-the-hell. Not to mention the absolute & utter contempt they must have for their audience.

Thanks For Your Help The Other
364/5 Days Of The Year,
You Hypocritical Bastards!

Were I still urban camping I'd show up at one of these bullshit celebrity events & shove a free drumstick right up one of these celebrity asshole's assholes!

See if your guilt is assuaged after that, phonies!

Also fuck this housing-homeless-veterans-before-decent-people bullshit. If you volunteered to kill babies for the U.S. Gov't. you are a chump & deserve to suffer for perpetuating fascism & continuing the very society that has, ironically, treated you like the pieces of shit you are. How does that work out? It's almost as if everything said about our noble baby-killers by politicians & other brain-dead talking heads is a fucking lie & they don't mean a word of it.

A fucking shame that instant karma is only applied to people who work (or worked) for a living, rather than the parasites who run this world of shit & pain & make it so painful & shitty for others.

Not to mention drunken assholes driving around in their shitmobiles funding ISIS & running people over. When will something be done about this form of random terrorism?

And, having worked retail (where one Thanksgiving I was forced to work Thanksgiving morning, from 2200 Weds. night until six that morning) fuck every exempt employee, supervisor (Literally "overseer", ring any bells?) middle manager, corporate executive & shareholder. W/ bullets, since apparently the Holy Jesus-inspired wonder that is democracy doesn't apply to the world of money-grubbing assholery, & we can't just vote the parasites out.

So ask yourselves why exactly you should be thankful & to whom. Hint: Damn sure not an imaginary fairy in the sky that has sentenced you to three-score & ten yrs. of misery.

Gobstopping Jawdropper Of The Wk.
Or Worst Thing Ever?

Madness! And why isn't the entire iNternet laughing uproariously at this hot mess of animated corpses?Suggested antidote:

U.S.$214.99 + U.S.$28.50 Handling Fee: Revolution Ain't Cheap

We need a revolution in traffic around here; I figure enough I.E.D. attacks at local intersections should thin out the fucking commuters & get things moving again, but it will not be inexpensive.
Fortunately, pressure cookers are much more reasonable.
Now I just have to figure out how many quarts I can fill w/ eight lbs. of powderturkey.

(Actually, having searched gunpowder & pressure cookers w/in mins. of each other I probably needn't make this sort of semi-veiled threat to invoke the wrath of the pissy-pants cowards of the National Security Apparatus. Or are they only watching all the drones on AOLFacebook & "social" media now?)

Ugly Mustachioed Chicago Police Superintendant Opens Fat Yap

"I'm incredibly confident in the professionalism of my department ..."
Confident in their "professional" ability to pump 16 rounds into an unarmed African-American teen-ager as fast as they could squeeze the fucking trigger? And about to reload & continue? Eat shit you obscene toad. I'd be happy to pump 16 rounds into your fat Irish face any day, Superintendant McCarthy.

Meanwhile, Mayor Emanuel can't get his fucking pigs to be peaceful, or just not trigger-happy, but he's more than willing to spout platitudes & clichés, isn't he? Frankly, if you can't control your police, you should just shut your festering gob/fucking mouth & go away, Mr. Mayor!
And here's the murderer himself. Bet he thinks he's a real bad-ass w/ his "Infidel" shirt, but it just reveals him to be a pathetic frightened moron like the rest of you.

Today In Domestic Christian Terrorism

Jeb! BUSH wants to let murdering Christians into my country? No way! Send these brutal savages back to wherever the hell they came from!
Oh yeah? What are you going to do? Sue me? Eat shit & die already. Information must be free, capitalist douchewads!

Lying Dimbulb Doctor Almost
Admits He's A Lying Dimbulb

GOP candidate Ben Carson's campaign says Carson was thinking of Middle East protests when he said he 'saw the film' of American Muslims cheering on Sept. 11; he apologizes for mistake - @KFaulders

Yes, the schaden types itself.
(WASHINGTON) -- In a press conference following a rally in Nevada on Monday, presidential candidate Ben Carson told reporters that he saw a video of American Muslims cheering on Sept. 11, 2001, in New Jersey when the World Trade Center's twin towers fell.

When asked by ABC News if American Muslims were cheering on 9/11, Carson said “Yes.”

When asked if he specifically saw it happening he said, “I saw the film of it, yeah.”

Later in the press conference he clarified he saw it from “the newsreels” from the 9/11 coverage at the time.

Communications Director Doug Watts told ABC News later on Monday that Dr. Carson did not stand by the comments.

"He doesn't stand behind his comments to New Jersey and American Muslims," Watts told ABC News. "He was rather thinking of the protests going on in the Middle East and some of the demonstrations that we're going on in celebration of the towers going down."

Watts continued: "He doesn't stand behind his references and apologizes for the mistaken references. It was a mistake on his part and he clearly wasn't really thinking about New Jersey, he was thinking about the Middle East."

Over the weekend, fellow GOP candidate Donald Trump said he saw New Jersey residents celebrating the 9/11 terrorist attacks -- a claim that has been challenged by fact checkers.

“I watched in Jersey City, New Jersey, where thousands and thousands of people were cheering as that building was coming down,” he said in a speech on Saturday. “Thousands of people were cheering.”

Trump repeated the assertion to ABC’s George Stephanopoulos on This Week.

“It was well covered at the time, George,” Trump said Sunday. “There were people over in New Jersey that were watching it, a heavy Arab population, that were cheering as the buildings came down.”

The Washington Post called the claim “outrageous” and the independent fact-checking website, PolitiFact, concluded that Trump’s statement “flies in the face of all the evidence we could find. We rate this statement 'Pants on Fire.'”

On Monday, Trump tweeted a link to a Sept. 18, 2001, Washington Post story:But The Post's fact-checker refuted the notion that the reported allegations in the story back up Trump’s claim.

And now, the rest of the story:
The Washington Post spoke to Jerry Speziale, the police commissioner of Paterson, N.J., for his response to Trump’s claims and he said: “That is totally false. That is patently false. That never happened. There were no flags burning, no one was dancing. That is bullshit.”

Speziale’s statement might not be completely accurate because as Jim Galloway, a journalist at the Atlanta Journal Constitution, noted yesterday: “As the towers came down, some people indeed saw a group of five — not thousands, but five — Middle Eastern men clowning around and photographing themselves in front of the burning towers from the New Jersey waterfront. They weren’t Arabs, and they weren’t Muslims.”

At that time, an FBI bulletin was issued warning law enforcement officers across the New York-New Jersey area to watch for a “vehicle possibly related to New York terrorist attack”:
White, 2000 Chevrolet van with ‘Urban Moving Systems’ sign on back seen at Liberty State Park, Jersey City, NJ, at the time of first impact of jetliner into World Trade Center Three individuals with van were seen celebrating after initial impact and subsequent explosion. FBI Newark Field Office requests that, if the van is located, hold for prints and detain individuals.
Twenty-five minutes after the alert had been sent out, the van was stopped by officers with the East Rutherford Police Department who arrested its five occupants who all turned out to be Israelis.

White Christians now make up less than half of the U.S. population, largely receding from the majorities of most demographic groups, with one notable exception: the Republican Party.

According to the latest results from Pew Research Center's Religious Landscape survey published Monday by National Journal's Next America project, just 46 percent of American adults are white Christians, down from 55 percent in 2007.

At the same time, according to the report, the share of white Christians identifying as Republican has remained steady, even equal with the share of the party that carried President Ronald Reagan to his 1984 reelection. Nearly seven in 10 white Christians — 69 percent — identify with or lean toward the GOP, while just 31 percent do the same with Democrats

Among nonwhite Christians, meanwhile, 32 percent identify with or lean toward Democrats, and just 13 percent do the same with Republicans.

In less than a decade, the gap in Christian identification between Democrats and Republicans has increased by 50 percent. According to the data presented, in 2007, 88 percent of white Republicans and 70 percent of white Democrats identified as Christian, an 18-point disparity. By 2014, 84 percent of white Republicans identified as Christian, but the share of white Democrats identifying as Christian fell by 13 points, to 57 percent, a 27-point gap.

Pew conducted the massive survey by telephone between June 4 and Sept. 30, 2014, interviewing 35,071 Americans, with an overall margin of error of plus or minus 0.6 percentage points.
Clearer recognition of the bitter clinging from National Journal, which has done some of that reading & interpreting/reporting stuff, unlike POLITICO or WEB of EVIL:
Long the dom­in­ant group in Amer­ic­an re­li­gious life, White Chris­ti­ans have fallen be­low a ma­jor­ity of the U.S. pop­u­la­tion—and they are mov­ing to the right polit­ic­ally as they re­cede.


“After 2004, when George W. Bush was reelec­ted, there was a lot of dis­cus­sion about the Demo­crats’ ‘God prob­lem,’ and the think­ing was Demo­crats needed to close the re­li­gion gap,” says Gregory Smith, as­so­ci­ate dir­ect­or of re­search at Pew. “But at the same time, we were watch­ing this group of ‘nones’—un­af­fili­ated with any re­li­gion—who were both grow­ing in the pop­u­la­tion as a whole and vot­ing very strongly Demo­crat­ic. There has been less dis­cus­sion of the Demo­crats’ re­li­gion prob­lem since then.”

Fingers Crossed

1978, baby! (The fight against the reign of the wicked continues.)
Eek-A-Mouse, born under the above name on this date in 1957.

Property Remains Theft, & Working People Can Just Fuck Off

Or so we conclude as rent-seeking parasites increase the suck on Sunset Blvd.:
ECHO PARK — A stroll down Sunset Boulevard through the heart of Echo Park finds many storefronts shuttered behind metal roll down doors. Banners and signs reading “For Lease” and “Available” are draped over several buildings. What’s going on? It’s the most recent phase of Echo Park’s ongoing commercial gentrification, as discount stores, checking cashing outlets and pawn shops give way to tenants catering to a more affluent clientele.

Rents have been climbing and are approaching $4 a square-foot in some choice spots, say real estate brokers. Potential tenants, ranging from Orange County barbershops to local restaurateurs and apparel stores, have been checking out the new available spaces, some of which have been renovated to show off exposed brick walls and soaring bow-truss ceilings. The opening of Lassen’s, a pricey organic foods store, has not only attracted more upscale shoppers to Sunset Boulevard but has also attracted more potential tenants to the area, too.

“Lassen’s is not a cheap market,” said Michael Pakravan with Kennedy Wilson, the brokerage firm that is seeking a tenant for the former Jumbo Bargain discount store. “It says something about the area. It shows that people in the area have money and are willing to spend it [Too damn much of it. - M.B.] for daily needs.”
Michael Pakravan with Kennedy Wilson; mentally challenged, or just another platitudinous asshole? Is there somewhere people have money but are unwilling to spend it on daily needs? (And weekly/monthly needs?) And what about the people who don't have enough money for their daily needs? Huh? What about them, fucking parasite?

A related musical interlude you may enjoy while this reporter steps out for just a moment to toss Molotov cocktails through certain Sunset Blvd. storefronts. No profits for parasites! Death to the fascist insect that preys upon the people!

White Male American Here ...

The urge to kill:
Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) told WAKR that most terrorist attacks in the United States since the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks have been committed by “generally white males.”

Said Brown: “Since the beginning of the Bush administration when we were attacked, September 11th, we’ve not had any major terrorist attacks in this country. We’ve had individual crazy people, of normally, they look more like me than they look like Middle Easterners. They are generally white males, who have shot up people in movie theaters and schools. Those are terrorist attacks, they’re just different kinds of terrorists.”
Just sayin'.
