Yes, I Know

May 29, 2017 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

Yes, I know all hell is breaking loose in Austin at the State Lege, where a Republican State Rep called ICE to get rid of the demonstrators at the capitol.  One Republican Rep threatened the life of a Democrat State Rep, and the State Troopers have become Storm Troopers.

I want to wait to sort out the bodies before I write about it.  But please feel free to comment here if you find something that looks legitimate.

Trusted source.

UPDATE:  Here is a video.  At 32 seconds you can see one of the Republican Reps (in a tan suit toward the front of the crowd), raise his hand to expose his handgun in a holster. He’s a little short prissy guy and loves his gun so much it’s considered obscene in 32 states and assorted territories.

Rinaldi the Twit

This is also where Republican Rep Matt Rinaldi called ICE on the people protesting SB 4 — he assumed because they were largely Hispanic, they were here illegally.

I have to tell you something about Matt Rinaldi.  He is a foul-mouthed little dip-dump who has to get an old woman to hold his hand to cross the street.  He is so crude that the F word ought to be embroidered on his tie.  He is generally recognized as the garden gnome of the Tea Party.

There are witnesses who heard Rinaldi threaten to shoot Democratic State Representative Pancho Nevarez “in the head.”

Reading several news sources, the best I can figure, it went like this: Rinaldi sashayed over to two Hispanic Democratic Representatives and goaded them by saying he had called ICE on the protesters.  One of the Democrats said, “I’m gonna get you,” and that’s when Rinaldi threaten to shoot him in the head.

Then Rinaldi runs as fast as his little legs will pump and asks for DPS protection.

Then like the little twit that he is, Rinaldi claimed he said that threat (you know, the one he first claimed he didn’t say)  in “verbal self defense.”  No, I am not kidding.  There is now such a thing as “verbal self defense.” That used to be called, “escalating the situation.”  The Texas Penal Code says that verbal crap ain’t provocation for nothin’.

Like a damn little fluffy puppy, Rinaldi growled and growled and then ran back under the couch when someone growled back.  I think this falls under, “You started this fight, butt boy” rule as codified in the Handbook of Getting Your Ass Whooped.

And Dan Patrick wants to call a damn special session because this one didn’t get nasty enough.

 

Keep A Lookout

Customer Scott has put together a pretty neat story.  Well, that’s not correct. It’s not neat, it’s frightening, but it’s neat how he put it together.

Last week, my hero Josh Marshall of Talking Points Memo, tweeted this:

 

GOP single issue advocacy group?  Hummmm.

So Scott started looking around for more information.  He kinda figured they had to be talking about the NRA.  That caused him to dig this out.  It reads like a spy novel.

The TL/DR version:  Spain has been investigating members of a Russian Mafia family that leads straight back to Donald Trump.  Okay, maybe not straight, but that’s what makes it interesting.

Alexander Torsion is one of the lead characters.

The formidable and powerful Taganskaya organization of which Torshin is allegedly part is recognized by the US and the EU information and intelligence services (including Europol and the FBI), according to the dossier about Torshin from the Spanish Civil Guard. Its activities include the appropriation of companies using violent or fraudulent methods, bank scams, extortion and the carrying out of contract killings.

He’s also a lifetime member of the NRA – yes, the American NRA – and is trying to form an NRA group in Russia.  And then …

During that visit to Washington, Torshin did have dinner with two Republican congressmen. The date was February 1 in a French restaurant, according to an article published in Time magazine earlier in March, and at which Maria Butina and a close friend of Trump White House strategist Stephen Bannon were also present.

Yeah, unnamed congressmen.  Hell, we don’t need no damn names.  We have names.

 

“From my cold, asset-forfeiture seized offshore bank account!”

Drain that damn swamp, baby, drain it.

Thanks to Scott for his work on this.

Oh Texas

In light of the Texas Lege passing SB 4 to ban sanctuary cities and Lt. Gov Dan Patrick insisting on his damn bathroom bill, Michael Dell and some of his friends signed a letter to Governor Abbott.

You can read it here.

Dell, Amazon, Facebook, Microsoft, Google, Cisco, Gearbox … and more, all warned that Texas might lose them.

Texas could also lose Austin, Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, Fort Worth, El Paso, and Laredo when we all secede from Texas and found The Republic of Texans Who Can Read.

Meanwhile, M. Scott Byers has some fun with our cowboys in government.

 

 

Peace Be With You

I’m Not Saying The Devil Came To Claim His Soul, But …

Several customers sent me this video showing up around the internet of strange flashing red lights coming from inside the White House.

 

Y’all, it’s that damn orb.  He never should have touched that orb.

Thanks to everybody for the heads up.

BREAKING: Trump’s Major Policy Shift

May 27, 2017 By: El Jefe Category: Trump

Yeah, yeah.  Saudi sword dances, the Pope, NATO, G7, blah, blah, blah.  Trump manhandles another NATO leader; rudely jerks Macron around with his famous Queens-style jerk and push handshake; runs out of gas and has to follow other G7 leaders while they stroll the streets of Taormina, Sicily in a…wait for it…golf cart.  Then he refuses to join in the consensus on the Paris climate accord.  What a 24 karat gold dick, right?  (Sorry, Momma, but it’s the only word I can think of today)

But that’s not the breaking news.  Here’s the breaking news:

See it?  Please tell me you see it.  For the first time in my memory, he actually buttoned his goddam jacket.  Famous for his 3-foot-long-cheap-made-in-Gīna ties, with which he attempts to cover that huge full-of-well-done-steak belly and not call attention to that massive, er, uh, rear terrace, he habitually stands in that weird slump with his suit jacket gaping open for all to see.  You’ll notice here a first (or at least first in a long time), where he actually buttoned his jacket and looked less like a NY mafia don and more like the disgusting and hair-weaved narcissistic reality television star that he is.

Oh, and here’s the only view I want to see of him for the last time – leaving the WH forever:

So there.
