Sunday funnies

Cold feet...

Incompetent counterfeiter...

Pope Francis clarifies his position on the death penalty.

Cream-puff truck for sale down at Honest Paco's Used Cars (needs some parts)...

The cobbler should stick to his last

Retired admiral William McRaven's astonishing censure of President Trump's stripping of John Brennan's security clearance enhanced my appreciation of two things.

(1) That the Founders, in their wisdom, saw fit to erect an impermeable barrier between the military and the operations of the civil government, and (2) that McRaven decided on a military, as opposed to a political, career, thus enabling him to serve his country with uncommon distinction, and to spare us all from the dubious benefits of having yet another clueless political naif getting anywhere near the machinery of government.

McRaven, in the above-linked open letter, astoundingly refers to Brennan as "one of the finest public servants" with "unparalleled integrity." Leaving aside the credible speculation (and, indeed, mounting evidence) that Brennan is a left-wing hack who was instrumental in cooking up the bogus accusations of collusion with the Russians in order to undermine first, the candidacy, and subsequently, the presidency of Donald Trump, there are numerous elements of his career that are established facts of the sort that are totally incompatible with such as assessment, including lying to Congress, whitewashing the concept of jihad, and baselessly accusing a sitting president of treason.

I wish the admiral a long, healthy and happy life, I commend him for his distinguished service, and I hope he enjoys many years of exercising his First Amendment rights to free speech as a private citizen. And, as a private citizen, I will continue to exercise those same rights, and I will do so now by saying that, while McRaven may well represent the epitome of the military virtues of duty and honor, when it comes to John Brennan, he is as full of s**t as any MSNBC talking head.

Happy Feet Friday

The following video is from the late 1950s or early 1960s. By the time the performance was recorded, the Big Band Era had been dead and gone for at least a decade; however, this all-star group - including Count Basie, Ben Webster, Coleman Hawkins, Joe Wilder and Roy Eldridge, among others - indicates that there were still musicians who could dish out some electrifying swing. Here's "Dickie's Dream" (look closely, and you'll see a couple of well-known onlookers, namely Jimmy Rushing and Billie Holiday).

Update: I did a little research, and found out the above session was filmed in 1957.

Assortment ("I see stupid people" edition)

Former professional basketball player apparently becoming illiterate in his old age: "Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Compares the National Anthem to a Slave Song".

Impotent rage and hollow threats from the Losers in Black. But be on your guard: the antifa threat is getting, er, larger...

The few. The proud. The Poop Patrol.

NY Governor Cuomo spells it "A-meh-rica".

Will Keith Ellison keep rising on the votes of stupid voters? Stay tuned.

Paul Joseph Watson on crybabies.

President Trump has revoked John "Coup-Coup-Ca-Choo" Brennan's security clearance, and high time.

Brennan, naturally, resents this move. "I‘ve seen this type of behavior and actions on the part of foreign tyrants and despots and autocrats during my CIA and national security career”. Well, actually, comrade, a tyrant would have stood you against a wall and had you shot.

I'm delighted to see this lying, scheming sack of wasted genetic material deprived of a privilege he has thoroughly abused - although, I wish there had been a ceremony; something along these lines...

Update: Oh, yeah, what about that trip Brennan made to Moscow in 2016? What's up with that?

"Pathological altruism"

Paul Joseph Watson scores again.

Watch the video. The young idiot is visibly besotted with self-satisfaction.

C'mon! If that were true, Pacos would have vanished eons ago.

"Homo erectus went extinct because they were lazy! Scientists claim 'least-effort strategies' for tool making and collecting resources contributed to the downfall of the primitive species". Sounds like prehistoric socialism.

Homo erectus motto: "Let George do it".
