"Another Saturday night, and I ain't got nobody..."

Anybody else remember that song?

In any case, new data

That time of week again;

so do your homework

"Yeah, she destroyed the ballots, but

there are scans so it's no big deal."
Oh, yes it is.  And this dirtbag should be fired and prosecuted for it.

That mess with Correia being disinvited from a gaming con because "He's evil and makes me feel unsafe!" ?  Well, he did an update to the fisking(four freakin' years ago!) that turns out to be behind the head screecher's anger.  A taste:
Since then I learned the following facts: A. The angry harpy is the fiance of the poor victimized guy who wrote this article about all those meany mean face racist gamers whose hatemongery haunts him so. 

B. Which is kind of funny, since apparently the guy who wrote this is the son of a man so rich that there is a Wikipedia page about how rich he is, and when you type his name into Google, autofilll completes it with “net worth”. 

No. I shit you not. His dad is like a billionaire. Which puts this fisking into a whole new perspective. He was so picked on! Such angst! How dare I disagree with his illogical angsty screed from my position of privilege! (snort). Daddy probably had to buy him a new Ferrari to cheer him up.
Go take a look, it gets better.

The officer involved should be charged for everything possible.

Zero excuse for this crap.

And if the prosecutors involved had the slightest idea about it, same for them.

John Bunn, convicted in an August 1991 killing based on tainted evidence produced by ex-Detective Louis Scarcella, turned angry Tuesday as prosecutors announced they would not retry his case.

"They won't admit I'm an innocent man," said the emotional Bunn, now 41, as he clutched the hands of his lawyers in a Brooklyn courtroom.

"Y'all had the wrong man this whole time and you have (someone) out there running free and y'all had no right to do what you did."
'We won't retry the case.'  I have no words.

speaking of socialist asshats,

more Democrat 'thought':
“What was the point of the Revolution if subjects of the British Crown get single payer health care and university education at a fraction of what it costs us and we are stuck with a President guilty of treason, bribery, and other crimes, and a Congress unwilling to get rid of him?” Painter asked.
I will further note that he seems to have forgotten that Hillary didn't win the election.

This is the enemy: if it doesn't involve the State having more control over your life, then it wasn't worth doing.

The founders would wonder what happened to this clown's brain.

Democrat/Socialist 'thought'...

One New York lawmaker wants to put a stop to archery programs in schools.

Manhattan Democrat Assemblywoman Linda Rosenthal says they promote “gun culture.”
And that, children, is what all this crap is really all about: ANYTHING that promotes personal skills that don't(in their view) serve the collective is bad and to be discouraged at the least; destroyed would be their preference.

Using a bow teaches discipline, and patience, and determination, and skill; and every one of those is anathema to the left.

Never forget: it's really all about control.

If you're looking for blades to make knives from,

Track of the Wolf has some Russell Green River blades on sale.  They're not fancy, but they're good steel, and they work.

Worst national socialists ever

Comparing Haley to Hitler for defending Jews. Yep, that's mainstream leftism alright.
It's also our crop of hysterical leftists.

It's not a question of whether Brennan and Clapper are liars; it's figuring out what they might not be lying about.

There is a stinking mess going on with a gaming convention called Origins.  Short version:
Origins advertised Larry Correia as a guest of honor.
A few SJBs screamed because "Makes me feel unsafe!  Bigot!  Racist!"
Idiot running con panics and uninvites Larry.
Fans react as you'd expect.
Con now deleting and blocking things, trying to act like he was never invited, and slandering fans.  A more complete rundown of this mess here.

As has been noted, this crap isn't just SJBs whining and bitching, it's a direct attack on the ability of some authors to make a living because they're guilty of Thought Crimes.  And, whether they realized it or not, this is going to hit vendors at the con because people DON'T come because they can't meet Larry(Or John Ringo at ConCarolinas, same kind of bullshit).

One more thing, as Michael Williamson has pointed out:
You must assume their intent is to lay groundwork to CREATE a scene they can attempt to blame the guest, or you, for.
And, considering the antics of Antifa and associates, they might well be trying to provoke a situation so they can assault someone and then cry "I'm a victim!"  And every time a con caves to "He makes me feel unsafe!" and such bullshit, they're going to escalate because "It worked!  Let's keep pushing!"

EVERYTHING is political with these asshats, including their tender feelings, and they truly believe* their feelings outweigh EVERYTHING else.  And they're going to keep pushing it until they hit a wall and the wall hits back.

*That's not counting the ones who know it's bullshit, but very useful bullshit for the left.

Speaking of the left,
TODAY IS THE 52nd ANNIVERSARY OF THE BEGINNING OF THE GREAT PROLETARIAN CULTURAL REVOLUTION: The consensus minimum death toll figure for that period in Chinese history is 400,000. Jung Chang and Jon Halliday place the number at up to three million in Mao: The Unknown Story.
The leftists think it was all justified and wonderful(possibly "It just didn't go far enough!").  The current problem being that it sounds a lot like many colleges:
In the coming months, things spun out of control. Red Guard students (often financed by the Party) were instructed to attack the “Four Olds”—old customs, cultures, habits and ideas. And attack they did. Entire libraries, temples, monasteries and mosques were destroyed. Clergy were arrested and sent off to camps. The national police chief declared that it was “no big deal” if Red Guards were beating “bad people” to death. Countless enemies of the people were denounced, humiliated, and made to confess their sins.
They haven't managed to burn many places yet, but the denouncing/humiliating/forced confessions have been common.  Along with assaults(then claiming them as 'defending ourselves against their badthoughts').  We've got the New Red Guard running around, it's just that most of them aren't honest enough to say outright what they are.

I posted something about Mueller's past once before,

but it's worth hitting again:
As Alan Dershowitz recalled on “The Cats Roundtable” podcast, Muller is “the guy who kept four innocent people in prison for many years in order to protect the cover of Whitey Bulger as an FBI informer. … And that’s regarded in Boston of one of the great scandals of modern judicial history. And Mueller was right at the center of it.” Others have said the charges are unfounded. Whatever the truth, the Bulger affair did not hold him back.
The Senate unanimously confirmed Mueller as FBI director on August 2, 2001, but Mueller did not show up for his swearing in for another 33 days. It was an ill-timed sabbatical. When the tragedy of 9/11 struck, Mueller surely recognized his absence would be noticed. Mueller tried to preempt those questions. Three days after 9/11, he claimed: “There were no warning signs that I’m aware of that would indicate this type of operation in the country.”
One week after the 9/11 attacks, letters with anthrax were mailed to various media outlets and the offices of two U.S. senators, killing five and infecting 17 others. Coming as soon as it did after 9/11, hysteria naturally ensued. This was Mueller’s first true test as FBI director. The results were not pretty. As Mollie Hemingway noted, Mueller “completely botch[ed] the anthrax killer case, wasting more than $100 million in taxpayer dollars, destroying the lives of multiple suspects, and chasing bad leads using bad methods.”

Mueller first wrongfully accused Steven Hatfill. Taxpayers ended up paying Hatfill $6 million to make good on that error. Mueller then accused another man, Bruce Ivins, based on scientific conclusions the National Academy of Sciences later determined to be flawed. Too late. A distraught Ivins killed himself. Mueller never apologized for either.
And now, among other things he's done, his team indicted a company that didn't exist.  But the Democrats and Never-Trump Republicans just seem to love this clown.

About the anthrax investigation, this was written before it was demonstrated just what a pile of shit the case against Ivins was.  Here's more on that.

Not a good thing to lose

The U.S. Air Force lost a box of grenade rounds in northwest North Dakota that fell off a Humvee earlier this month, and now is seeking the public’s help in locating the explosives.
And I feel bad when I can't remember where I set a box of ammo...

But- but gun owners and concealed carriers are all old fat white men!

The bigots and hoplophobes and racists tell us so!

Which just means they're, once again, full of shit.

At this point, would anyone be surprised?
If this report proves to be correct, it will mean - in so many words - that the FBI, the USA's premier law enforcement agency, was suborned and taken over for partisan political purposes by the Obama administration.  That will be catastrophic for the FBI's reputation, so much so that the agency may not survive in its present form.  It would join the IRS as being irreparably harmed by the taint of corruption for political purposes.
The EffingBI is whining that all the reporting on this, and Trump tweeting about it, keeps harming their reputation; well, if you weren't run by a bunch of arrogant "I am the Law!" corrupt assholes, that would help a lot.

And, let's not forget, there had to be a lot of those(we're told) sterling field agents involved in all this crap.  And the lab scandals.  And the "We don't record interviews except on paper" bullshit.  Do a bit of cleaning in your own damned house, that might help.

Please note who this highly-educated asshat went on to work for

and despair.
After his talk, in which he disparaged the Taliban, a biologist who would go on to serve on President Barack Obama’s Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues approached him. “I remember she said: ‘That’s just your opinion. How can you say that forcing women to wear burqas is wrong?’ But to me it’s just obvious that forcing women to live their lives inside bags is wrong. I gave her another example: What if we found a culture that was ritually blinding every third child? And she actually said, ‘It would depend on why they were doing it.’” His jaw, he said, “actually fell open.”
Remember: "All cultures are equal!  And if you disagree, you're a racist!"  Or whatever they think of to call you.

Apparently the Constable Plods didn't like being mocked.  No matter how much they deserved it.

Never interrupt the enemy when they're making a mistake
Just sit back and laugh.

Someone put it nicely: "Never forget that the left hates you.  Act accordingly."

So, if this family does raise the money, will the NHS

forbid them to go?  Or will it be "We said 'amputation', and that's what you're getting."
