Irony Man

obama, obama jokes, political, humor, cartoon, conservative, hope n' change, hope and change, stilton jarlsberg, electoral college, russia, hackers, czar
This is SO much funnier when you substitute the correct word for "bleeping"...
The Left is still pushing the story that the integrity of our recent election was fatally compromised by leaked information which, according to unnamed and unsubstantiated intelligence agency sources who are leaking information (if not made up entirely) came from Russia.

We've already editorialized on this nonsense, but found that a new low was reached when White House spokesweasel Josh Earnest declared (not joshing, but earnestly) that "It's just a fact that (Trump) was encouraging Russia to hack his opponent (to) help his campaign."

Well, no - it's a fact that Trump made a very obvious joke about Russia finding the 30,000 emails that Hillary was hiding from investigators. But when this obvious truth was pointed out to Earnest, he glowered, "I don't think anybody at the White House thinks it's funny that an adversary of the United States engaged in malicious cyberactivity to destabilize our democracy. That's not a joke. Nobody at the White House thought it was a joke. Nobody in the intelligence community thought it was a joke."

In other words, nobody in the White House or intelligence community would know a joke if it bit them in the ass. Which this one actually has.

Still, the preposterous hubbub is giving some Leftists hope that Monday's vote by the electoral college might still overturn the will of the people...

We think it's almost impossible that there will be a last-minute upset in the electoral college, but we admit we'll breathe easier when the voting is finally done, and Donald Trump's win is validated. Or is that Vlad-idated...?

From the yuletide vault in 2012...

And don't forget...
You probably think this was just an excuse to bring back Busty again. And you're right.

"malicious cyberactivity to destabilize our democracy"
When you have no facts, serve up a word salad.

Every day, the liberals get more outrageous and we can expect that ever day until they die of a stroke or run out of verbal ammunition. Right now they are shooting verbal blanks. Monday is a fine day for we that have hope. January 20 when I shall shout to the heavens, "THANK GOD IT'S FRIDAY!!!!!!" And, Miss Ross reminds me of my youth when I would stare at Al Capp's Daisy Mae until my eyes went blurry. And nobody has mentioned little weiner's computer with no security having +600K emails that no one know how they got there and no one has mentioned whether it was hacked or not. Yea, this boggles the mind.

Looks like stopping the importation of sporting arms and ammunition has really crippled the Russians.
What's next berrie? Pretty sure mooch ain't going to let you ban caviar. And I hear sHrillary has worked a deal to stop you from banning the importation of vodka.

Fred Ciampi said...

"Malicious cyberactivity to destabilize our democracy". Wow. out here in hillbillyland using all those two dollar words at once caused a bunch of folks to go downright crazy. Using words with two syllables is hard enuf but having one with six!!!!! Had to go see the schoolmarm down at the schoolhouse to see what that meant. And she had no idea either. Oh, ah hope I can stay sober until Monday............

Fat fingers posted too soon!

New drinking game! Every time you hear "democracy" take a drink and shout out to that source "We ain't a democracy, we are a Representative Republic! Then hand over your keys and don't drive because you will be way over the legal limit.

Judi King said...

I just don't get any of this hacking stuff. If the Russians DID hack the could that be of advantage to Trump unless the dems were doing something wrong? Makes no sense to me. Also....fake news???? I have been aware of media manipulation (read fake news) since the early 60's, when I started paying attention, and it started before that. Why is this a big deal now? I've had enough of these whining losers.

Geoff King said...

Assange himself denies that Russia had anything to do with the leaks, and it now appears that they actually came from disgusted democrat insiders:
Supposedly there is evidence that Russia may have hacked the RNC, but everything they found was too boring and bland to release.
With the release of the new Star Wars film coming, perhaps the demwits should instead try blaming operatives of the Rebel Alliance for the stolen data. The sheep will probably buy that one.

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

@Mike aka Proof- I found that a particularly overwrought phrase. Josh Earnest has no shame.

@James Daily- This latest iteration of hubbub about the "Russian hacking conspiracy" is particularly galling because it's looking increasingly like an attempt by the Left (not Russia) to overthrow the election results. An attempt going all the way up to Obama. The man's name will always be a stain on the list of American presidents.

And regarding the emails on Weiner's computer - why isn't Huma already in jail? Why isn't Weiner being charged with espionage? And until those things happen, why should be take the Obama administration's sudden interest in cyber-security seriously?!

@Fred Ciampi- I even had to ask what a "syllable" was. Turns out, when coming from the mouth of Josh Earnest, it's like regular bull but sillier.

@Bobo the Hobo- We can drink and shout all we want, but I don't think the Left will ever figure out that we're a representative republic. For them, ignorance isn't just bliss - it's dogma.

@Judi King- Exactly. The real story shouldn't be about who hacked what, but about the motherload of corruption that was unearthed about Hillary and the DNC.

@Geoff King- I've been saying all along that I don't think it was the Russians who supplied Wikileaks with the material (although they may well have gotten the information on their own and sat on it, to use for blackmailing Hillary if she won). I find the "insider" theory much more plausible.

REM1875 said...

BoBo I have been doing that drinking game you suggest so long everyone already knows to head for the exits every time someone say democracy around me. Plus they all know "democracy is 3 wolves and a sheep deciding what to have for dinner"
And I have to do it without drinking.
If ya do it with alcohol while watching the evening news you could OD before they finish.

REM1875 said...

Doc you nailed it- when the leak is about a demonRat the story becomes totally about the messenger and never about the message.
What little the media said about the leaked e-mails was almost never about what was in the e-mails.

Anonymous said...

Obama lives in the land of alt-Left propaganda - an alternate fantasy universe of lies and disinformation using the Russians as a scapegoat for their OWN cheating, deviousness and corruption. I can hardly wait until January 20 when The Big 0 finally moves out of the White House and we don't have to listen to this BS any more!

MD Vickery said...

Shoot the messenger!....ignore the message. Was it a Russian who did it? Or someone who used Russian generated hacking software? Was he associated with the Russian government? Is there any proof of who ACTUALLY did it? Or did Putin put that email server in Shrillary's basement? Did he leak the debate questions to her? Maybe it was actually Putin and not Debbie Washerman-Smaltz who rigged the primary against Bernie! This whole charade is wandering worse than Shrillary's eyes. As a candidate she had less character than Al Capone and all the charisma of a three day dead carp. But pay no attention to those facts behind the curtain!

TrickyRicky said...

This is simply awesome. When you think the loons of the left can't possibly make bigger fools of themselves, can't possibly reinforce the reasons they lost the election despite the all-in, journalism-is-finished-and-we-don't-care support of the "media", can't possibly look more churlish and childish.....they do. In front of the whole world. How truly embarrassing it must be to be one of them.

Old Eagle said...

Does anybody remember the unbelievable scene when Obama, ostensibly the President of the United States, just before his unfathomable re-election, put his hand on Russian President Medvedev's knee, and whispered to him, " Please tell Vladimir I can be more flexible after I am re-elected."? Has anybody ever asked him just what the hell he meant by that?...BECAUSE HIS ACTIONS AFTER SAYING THAT WOULD HAVE ANY NORMAL PERSON THINKING HE IS A RUSSIAN AGENT....THE GRADE-A MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE! And folks, I would still like someone to ask him just what that meant,
in the light of all the cave-ins to Russia since he said it. I mean, let's go on the offensive against this plant.

I'll just leave this here:

I believe that we have all had a taste, in the last eight years, of what our country could be like if we don't straighten up and fly right. I also believe that there have been more prayers offered up this election cycle than in the past fifty years. Prayers that were offered for wisdom, direction, forgiveness and mercy for ourselves and our country. Where fear abounds, people pray. When people pray, God hears.
Obama is not our king, no president is our king. The government is not our king, the USA is not our king.
For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
7 Of the greatness of his government and peace
there will be no end.
He will reign on David’s throne
and over his kingdom,
establishing and upholding it
with justice and righteousness
from that time on and forever.
The zeal of the Lord Almighty
will accomplish this.

Isaiah 9:6-7 Jesus is our King

There's plenty of "malicious cyberactivity to destabilize our democracy" spewing forth the from the electronic devices used by Shrillary, O'Liar, Podesta, Wasserman-Schultz, and probably every other player in the O'Liar pack of miscreants. The lowest priority on their to do list is protecting our "democracy."

Julian Assange has repeatedly said that, although he will not disclose names of informants, the Russians had nothing to do with the DNC leaks. I would point out that Assange really has no reason to lie.

@Old Eagle,
That immediately popped into my mind as well when O'Liar started quacking about Russia queering our elections. I'd give BOTH nuts to know what Medvedev asked O'Liar just before O'Liar's response. You can be sure it was nothing that had any benefit to us Americans, and EVERYTHING to do with O'Liar's quest for Socialist Glory.

I too will breathe much easier after I hear the official announcement that the next President is indeed D.J. Trump. If anything else is announced, all holy hell is going to erupt. But even then, so much can happen between December 19 and January 20! Good thing Mrs. Muenster has that nice stash of single malts that she thinks I don't know about, so I can stay comfortably numb for a month!

Colby Muenster said...


Imagine what it would be like. A democracy of 330 million would just be an anarchy under a different name. Obama would love it!

Snowflakes are a symptom of the disease of Afluenza. The more affluent the young become, the softer they get, and they are not deterred from staying that way by rhetoric. Only something that comes between them and their soft little lives will change what they are. Unfortunately, most of their parents are the same way, and neither they, nor their offspring can see the destruction they are creating in their own country. Only the strong and virile survive, and they are in this country right now, looking with envious eyes at what the snowflakes and their parents have. It's not only a matter of the barbarian's enablers that is bringing us down, but the barbarians themselves. This stuff has got to be changed, and pronto. The enemy is not at the gates, but within them.

Not only are you a master of the 3-panel joke,
but you served up three good Russian jokes in a row!
Well done, m'boy, well done.

Judi King said...

@ Geoff: Yeah right. Donations?... That'll happen when hell freezes over.

NVRick said...

@REM1875 You are absolutely correct. For the Dims and lefties, it is always "shoot the messenger", not examine the message.
A somewhat apropos comparison would be when the British broke the Enigma codes. Those codes were hacked!!! and the British should have just thrown a fit over this and jailed Alan Turing. Turing and the boys at Bletchley Park helped end the war in Europe.It is ironic that Turing was convicted for being a homosexual and eventually killed himself. I'd like to see a lib wrap those two facts around their heads.

Rod said...

I was about to admit that is was MY forgetfulness that just about ran my aging father's propane tank empty; and it was just lucky I happened to check it in time just before a cold spell and get a fill out there the same day. But then overnight, AFTER WATCHING THE NEWS, I realized it was Putin fucking around with gas contracts and only my intuition & sense of responsibility that caught the SOB. I will have an official report to back that up tomorrow.

Shelly said...

I agree with @Colby Muenster. I don't believe the shenanigans will stop after the Electoral College votes. Remember the vote has to be certified in Congress in January and that is ripe for destruction by the butt hurt liberals.

I was amused by the recent video by so-called celebrities imploring the Electors to do their constitutional duty and uphold the real intent of the Founding Fathers by voting against Trump. So at last they recognize our founding document and those bitter white slaveholders do exist.

I still think the murder of Seth Rich, the DNC staffer, has something to do with the leak. There has been a concerning silence surrounding his death which seems very suspicious to me.

Lastly, I must share a comment I read this morning on a website. Trying to reason with liberals is like trying to pick up the clean end of a turd.

Merry Christmas!

What do you mean the Russians hacked the election?

Like with an axe?

Geoff King said...

Off topic, but just came across this:
John McCain was a traitor. I always thought that. Now the proof has been released. He was given preferential treatment as a POW, while his fellow prisioners were tortured, starved, and denied medical treatment. In exchange for whatever else he divulged to the North Vietnamese, he made this recording denouncing the USA.
Why the citizens of my state of Arizona chose to re-elect that SOB, I will never understand.
