Hitting and Running

Before somebody hits back.

Here are a few items that are unrelated but worth a look, if you have nothing else to do.

Flashback: Obama Mocked the Idea That a US Election Could be Rigged

It wasn’t until after Donald Trump won the election that the Left got all twitchy about the election having been rigged.  Before the election, when they thought Hillary had it locked up, they said rigging an American election was impossible.

Obama:  “There’s no serious person out there who would suggest somehow that you could even rig America’s election in part because they’re so de-centralized and the numbers of votes involved. There is no evidence that that has happened in the past or that there’s incidences which that will happen this time.”

Obama went on to mock Trump and told him to “stop whining” and get votes so he can win the election.


Obama-appointed judges blocking Trump’s immigration crackdown


The judges in those deportation cases have rejected Mr. Trump’s argument that he has wide latitude to decide who gets kicked out, without having to worry about district courts second-guessing him on facts of the case.  Instead, the judges said, they get to decide their jurisdiction, and that extends to reviewing Mr. Trump’s immigration policy.

For low-income residents, Philadelphia unveiling income-based water bills

The Philadelphia Water Department next month will launch a low-income assistance program that offers payments starting at $12 per month and is open even to those who haven’t fallen behind on their bills. For those who have, that debt would be frozen indefinitely.

Officials are hoping to enroll upward of 50,000 households, five times those in the city’s current program for low-income payers.

The Latest Victim Group: Journalist-Americans

Let’s replace Jim Acosta with Elmo … plus, Sean Spicer doing interpretive dance and Elmo rescuing CNN from a black hole. ROFLL

BTW, the Elmo interview is a real thing. Mark Dice said of it, “At least they weren’t using an anonymous source.”

The Fundamental Difference

  • When Progressives protest, they vandalize the protested.
  • When Conservatives protest, they buy stuff from the protested.

2017_06 26 Trump protest at Starbucks

After a Trump supporter complained that she had been ridiculed by the staff at Starbucks, more than 50 T-shirt wearing Trump backers staged a peaceful gathering, filling chairs, tables and even the parking lot at one point.

While it has been described as a sit-in, the crowd was made up of paying customers and not just “people who were filling chairs.”

“We wanted the staff to see that Trump supporters are just as human as anyone else,” one guy said. “We live in a diverse city. It’s unacceptable in a modern society to make a customer feel uncomfortable, whether it’s a liberal business mistreating a conservative customer or a conservative business mistreating a liberal customer.”

This is CNN

In between whining about not getting called on at WH pressers and yammering endlessly about that big nothingburger of a Russia collusion story, CNN’s crack reporters dig up the NEWS that (apparently) their moronic viewers want to hear.
Remember when they broke the big story about how President Trump had TWO scoops of ice cream? Well, THIS week, they’re on to an even more exciting story! Former President Barack Obama was spotted wearing cool jeans!

Toxic at any concentration

2017_06 28 Pelosium

A major research institution has just announced the discovery of the densest element yet known to science.

The new element has been named Pelosium.

The chemical symbol of Pelosium is Pu.

Pelosium has one neutron, 12 assistant neutrons, 75 deputy neutrons, and 224 assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an atomic mass of 311.

These particles are held together by dark particles called morons, which are surrounded by vast quantities of lepton-like particles called peons.

Pelosium is toxic at any level of concentration.


  • I didn’t write this. I saw it posted as a comment on Facebook.

Bacon Lovers Rise to the Challenge

2017_06 28 PETA bacon tweet

My favorite responses:

  • It’s bacon.
  • I have taste buds.
  • It pisses you off.
  • 2 million years of evolution has resulted in humans thinking bacon smells and tastes delicious. Trust the process.
