Carolina Panthers Vs Cleveland Browns

My buddies Proof and Woodsterman have watched their 49ers eliminate themselves from the playoff picture and the 5-8-1 Carolina Panthers have played so horribly this season that their chances of going to the playoffs is statistically weak despite their two-game winning streak.

The 6-8 Saints are sitting pretty right now.  If they beat the 5-9 Falcons it’s over for Carolina.  If the Saints lose and the Panthers win there’s still a chance to make it to the playoffs, but that’s a pretty tall order.

The Browns will start their snot-nosed brat at QB and I had seriously given thought to buying a ticket on the visitor’s side of Bank of America Stadium (there were still seats available behind the Browns’ bench) expressly for the purpose of berating Manziel.  I decided instead to yell at the TV from the comfort of Casa de Curmudgeon at the little twerp.  I hope the fans who are sitting near the Browns’ bench give him hell.  After all, in the game where little Johnny was totally dominated in their 30-0 loss to Cincinnati, the Bengals players mocked him with his own obnoxious “money sign” after mercilessly sacking him and picking off his passes.

The latest reports from the Panthers organization is that Cam Newton will start for the Panthers.  I don’t like that decision.  I’ve pushed playing back-up QB Derek Anderson for a long time now.  He ably demonstrated he can lead the Panthers to victory.  Anderson deserves to start against the team that cut him after the 2009 season and because Newton did nothing during most of the season to help his team have a winning season.

And because no football post would be complete without some pom-poms, here’s a picture of a bevy of Top Cat beauties.

You Risten Now To Grorious Reader!

CNN’s Brian Stelter reported that Sony execs got a little something in their emails Thursday night.  It seems the hackers who have whipsawed them for about a month decided to take a victory lap:
"It's very wise that you have made the decision to cancel the release of The Interview. It will be very useful for you. Now we want you never [sic] let the movie released, distributed or leaked in any form of, for instance, DVD or piracy. And we want everything related to the movie, including its trailers, as well as its full version down from any website hosting them immediately. We still have your private and sensitive data.  We will ensure the security of your data unless you make additional trouble."
How humiliating it must be to surrender to a half-pint tin pot dictator of a hermit state. 

You humiriate Grorious Reader no moor, okay?

UPDATE:  And from the parody Twitter account comes this hilarious tweet:

A Shithole Dictatorship

When Fidel Castro and Che Guevara marched into Cuba in 1959, the communist revolution turned the country upside down.

“If only FDR had normalized relations with Benito Mussolini, Adolf Hitler, and Tojo.” 
“What we need to do is normalize relations with Israel, but Obama doesn't like Israel. Never forget that Obama attended a church headed by Jeremiah Wright, an anti-Semite.” 
“This is a sad day for America as once again, an American president cozies up to a dictatorship.”

Blazing Diplomacy

Fans of "Blazing Saddles" will remember Cleavon Little as the sheriff taking himself hostage. That was the impression that first came to my mind after hearing President Obama's plan to normalize relations with Communist Cuba.

But, did the President take himself hostage? Just his credibility (if there were any left!) Step into the Wayback Machine with me to 2009:
President Obama marked his 100th day in office Wednesday by holding a prime-time news conference from the White House. Obama said the Bush administration’s use of waterboarding was torture...
OBAMA: What I’ve said—and I will repeat—is that waterboarding violates our ideals and our values. I do believe that it is torture. I don’t think that’s just my opinion; that’s the opinion of many who’ve examined the topic. And that’s why I put an end to these practices.
At the very beginning of his presidency, Obama made known his erroneous and disparaging views on enhanced interrogation, falsely calling it torture, which has specific meaning and connotation around the planet, casting the "land of the free and the home of the brave" as being morally equivalent with nations that practice genuine torture.

There was much public debate about the subject in 2009. A number of reporters volunteered to be waterboarded, (more reporters were waterboarded than terrorists, it turns out!) The lines were drawn. The Left disparaged everything George W. Bush did, so there was no reasoning with them. The furor eventually died down and people were soon inundated with a barrage of scandals, economic malaise and foreign policy debacles unabated by a White House obsessed with celebrities and golf, with an occasional funeral selfie.

Suddenly, after five years of being a non-issue, the lamest of lame duck partisan Senate committees under Dianne Feinstein, felt compelled to revisit the issue. They had to act with alacrity, since in January, adults would take over in the US Senate and such partisan claptrap would never see the light of day.

And then, mirabile dictu, after bringing the issue back into the limelight and into the nation's consciousness once again, Barack Obama announces that despite all the hand wringing and faux outrage shown towards the US for enhanced interrogation techniques, that he would seek to normalize relations with a brutal dictatorship known for torturing and killing political prisoners.


Desperately in search of a legacy, Barack will not let the lack of a consistent and rational foreign policy on his part, or the utter hypocrisy of his positions, deter him from giving aid and assistance to our enemies and their allies.

Hillary Scandals To Unravel?


Via Rising ICYMI

Something Wonderful: “Real Love”

The Corrosive Idiocy Of MSNBC’s Ed Schultz

I don’t watch any of the drivel on MSNBC simply because I don’t want my world darkened by liberal hacks with Permanent Anger Syndrome.

The network has a tiny audience, but MSNBC’s The Ed Show has the lowest ratings demo with a negligible 53,000 viewers. So why am I using my bandwidth to write about this schlub who reminds you of every angry drunk you’ve ever known?

Schultz, like the network that employs him, engages in deceptive editing.  Examples can be seen here, here, here and here.  I’m sure there are scads of other examples, but you get the idea.

While perusing the Intertoobs yesterday, I came across a story that mildly amused me only because I watched the game between the Dallas Cowboys and the Philadelphia Eagles along with 21.8 million others on Sunday. During the game, NBC’s cameras panned over to the luxury corporate box where NJ Governor Chris Christie could be seen high-fiving Cowboys’ owner Jerry Jones.

Christie has come under fire for being a long-time fan of the Cowboys much to the chagrin of New Jersey residents who feel he should be rooting for the Eagles, Giants or Jets.

Mediaite noticed that Schultz used a photo from one year ago that depicted the RNC Chairman with Christie and Jones in Dallas not Philadelphia.  Schultz, trying to be clever, said that his show’s researchers “noticed what looks like RNC Chair Reince Priebus sitting behind Christie and Jones.  We reached out to the RNC and they told us they thought he was at a dinner in Washington, DC on Sunday night.”

So complete was their effort to deceive that they added a “bug” on the screen that read SUNDAY NIGHT PHILADELPHIA and then, for his mind-numbed viewers, circled Priebus’ face.

When the trickery of MSNBC and the host of The Ed Show was noticed by Sean Spicer, Communications Director for the Republican National Committee, he tweeted this:

That message was promptly retweeted by Priebus, but so far, the official Ed Show Twitter account has remained silent on the matter.

It’s only a matter of time before General Motors is forced to recall Schultz as a faulty airbag.

Hillary’s Masterpiece Of Stupidity

PESHAWAR—Shahrukh Khan, a 16-year-old schoolboy, was sitting with his classmates during a careers guidance session at the Army Public School in Peshawar when gunmen wearing paramilitary uniforms burst in and opened fire. He cowered under a bench playing dead as filthy animals pumped bullets into the bodies of his fellow students.

In the aftermath of the massacre the children spoke of the horror they witnessed.  One said, “I tried to get up but fell to the ground because of my wounds. When I crawled to the next room, it was horrible. I saw the dead body of our office assistant on fire. She was sitting on the chair with blood dripping from her body as she burned.”

Another boy who spoke of his dramatic escape as bullets flew past his head said, “I saw a few soldiers trying to encircle a young man who was wearing a similar uniform to them. When soldiers tried to approach him, there was a huge blast. The other guy was one of the terrorists. This was such a horrible scene. For a few moments, I couldn't understand what was going on. I saw his body parts flying in the air after the blast.  One of the soldiers was badly injured.”

Thirteen days ago, while speaking at Georgetown University, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spoke on the subject of “Smart Power:  Security Through Inclusive Leadership”.

As she spoke it was blah, blah this and blah, blah that followed by this amazingly naïve bit of dishonest rhetoric:
“This is what we call smart power: using every possible tool and partner to advance peace and security, and leaving no one on the sidelines, showing respect, even for one’s enemies, trying to understand and insofar as psychologically possible empathize with their perspective and point of view—helping to define the problems, determine the solutions, that is what we believe in the 21st Century will change. Change the prospects for peace.”
Our shameful foreign policy does not stem from our lack of empathy and damn you liberals to hell for saying it does.  Forgive my political incorrectness, but the second rising of barbarians at the gate can be traced directly to the inauguration of The World’s Most Dangerous Community Organizer.

I hope I do not live long enough to witness another 9/11.  May God have mercy on us all.

After 16-Hour Ordeal Sydney Café Siege Is Over

Photos courtesy: AP and AAP Images
Once again the filthy heresy of Islam has been visited upon the world by a “self-styled” sheik named Man Haron Monis.  Born Manteghi Bourjerdi, the 49-year-old extremist left Iran for Australia in 1996 and adopted various names before settling on Sheik Haron Monis. Already well-known to police, Monis was out on bail until February of 2015 for more than 40 sexual offenses.  A profile of this animal notes that he claimed to be an expert specializing in astrology, numerology, meditation and black magic.

Monis sent “grossly offensive” hate letters to the families of Australian soldiers killed by insurgents in Afghanistan and was last November accused of being an accessory to murder of his ex-wife after her body was found badly burned with multiple stab wounds.

Thankfully, his demented life came to an end after a gunfight lasting less than two minutes with Sydney police.

Robert Spencer describes the Sydney chocolate shop siege as a possible fulfillment of the threat issued by Islamic State spokesman Abu Muhammad al-Adnani in a September video:
“If you can kill a disbelieving American or European—especially the spiteful and filthy French—or an Australian, or a Canadian, or any other disbeliever from the disbelievers waging war, including the citizens of the countries that entered into a coalition against the Islamic State, then rely upon Allah, and kill him in any manner or way however it may be."
“Do not ask for anyone’s advice and do not seek anyone’s verdict. Kill the disbeliever whether he is civilian or military, for they have the same ruling. Both of them are disbelievers. Both of them are considered to be waging war [the civilian by belonging to a state waging war against the Muslims]. Both of their blood and wealth is legal for you to destroy, for blood does not become illegal or legal to spill by the clothes being worn.”
Spencer believes the “siege is a harbinger of things to come not only in Australia, but in Western Europe, Britain, Canada and the United States where we see “Islamic jihadists taking hostages in the West as they have for so long in the Middle East, Africa and Asia.”


Daniel Greenfield reminds us, “Islam has a history of over a thousand years of continuously dehumanizing non-Muslims and identifying peace and their enslavement as one and the same. It is impossible to live in peace with Muslims who think that there can be no peace as long as non-Muslims continue to live independent lives.”

“In the Muslim worldview, war happens because non-Muslims exist. War is caused by the infidel, the disbeliever and the Muslim hypocrite who does not truly commit to the practice of Islam. The Jihad purifies the world of non-Muslims; it eradicates the ‘moderate’ Muslims who have been compromised by Western culture.  It is a war of extermination against the un-Islamic.”

We are preached to by leaders with scant knowledge of Muslim scripture that the Islamic State’s hateful ideology has nothing to do with Islam.  They espouse the laughable notion that Islam is the religion of peace.

No, Islam is not the religion of peace.  These sub-humans’ bloodthirsty interpretations of their pedophile prophet’s scriptures are far too lethal.

Tom Holland opines, “It is not enough to engage with the jihadis solely on the battlefield. They must be defeated as well in mosques, and libraries, and seminar rooms. This is a battle that, in the long run, can only be won by theologians.”

He believes “fighters for the Islamic State might well point out that the Qur’an describes angels decapitating unbelievers with the aim of spreading terror; that the first Muslims are described as harvesting heads on the battlefield of Badr; that Muhammad himself is said to have owned a sword that can be translated as ‘Cleaver of Vertebrae’”.

“It is not enough, within such a context, merely to insist that Islam is a religion of peace, and leave it at that. Muslim scholars have an urgent responsibility to demonstrate in the most painstaking detail exactly where and why the jihadis are wrong. Just as Christian intellectuals, in the wake of the Holocaust, were obliged to confront the evil purposes to which the New Testament had been put, and recalibrate their understanding of it on a theological level, so do their Muslim counterparts today need to redeem their own scriptures from the taint of savagery that is doing so much to blacken the image of their religion.”

With the release of Dianne Feinstein’s so called “torture report” just days ago, one must ask if it has already spawned other acts of violence such as the Sydney siege that may bring harm to Americans abroad.

Senator Feinstein please call your office.
