Reminder: Barney Frank Is a Bitter, Horrible Person

The former Democrat Congressman re-elected to the House repeatedly despite having the moral character of a sewer trout (who, by the way, played a huge role in the 2008 Economic Crash by blocking reforms to Fannie Mae and Freddy Mac while having a sexual affair with one of the principals of Freddie Mac).

Anyway, Barney Frank is out of Congress, he’s still a sewer trout.

On Tuesday’s broadcast of MSDNC’s ‘Hardball,’ former Representative Barney Frank (D-MA) quipped that Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia “was actually the leading advocate of fag-burning, not flag burning.”

I begin to feel like George Takei is kind of an a-hole.




Hat Tip: James Taranto.

I wonder if the left is going to be able to perform any sort of introspection at all after this election. They seem to be stuck at the “denial” and “rage” stage of the grieving process. It must be harder, on the left, to question one’s own dogma because of the vast media-academic echo chamber constantly reverberating with “We are right and perfect. Our enemies are racists, misogynists, haters and bigots. Their opinions are not worth listening to.”  I wonder if leftists have the basic skills to step back and look at their beliefs with any mount of objectivity.

Garrison Keillor Sounds Bitter and Butthurt

The Washington Post saw fit to publish these bitter rantings.

So he won. The nation takes a deep breath. Raw ego and proud illiteracy have won out, and a severely learning-disabled man with a real character problem will be president.

The Trumpers never expected their guy to actually win the thing, and that’s their problem now. They wanted only to whoop and yell, boo at the H-word, wear profane T-shirts, maybe grab a crotch or two, jump in the RV with a couple of six-packs and go out and shoot some spotted owls. It was pleasure enough for them just to know that they were driving us wild with dismay — by “us,” I mean librarians, children’s authors, yoga practitioners, Unitarians, bird-watchers, people who make their own pasta, opera-goers, the grammar police, people who keep books on their shelves, that bunch. The Trumpers exulted in knowing we were tearing our hair out. They had our number, like a bratty kid who knows exactly how to make you grit your teeth and froth at the mouth.

We liberal elitists are now completely in the clear. The government is in Republican hands. Let them deal with him. Democrats can spend four years raising heirloom tomatoes, meditating, reading Jane Austen, traveling around the country, tasting artisan beers, and let the Republicans build the wall and carry on the trade war with China and deport the undocumented and deal with opioids, and we Democrats can go for a long , brisk walk and smell the roses.

What do you want to bet that the Washington Post had all kinds of “Come On, Guys, She Won, Let’s Work Together” columns already written before last Tuesday night?

Clinton: Blacks Are No Good at Self-Government; Time to Replace Them with a Lighter Skinned Population


Detroit has 10,000 empty, structurally sound houses—10,000. And lot of jobs to be had repairing those houses. Detroit just came out of bankruptcy and the mayor’s trying to do an innovative sort of urban homesteading program there. But it just gives you an example of what could be done. And I think any of us who have ever had any personal experience with either Syrian Americans or Syrian refugees think it’s a pretty good deal.

So, what he is saying is that a black majority American city is incapable of rebuilding itself, and the only solution is to import a new population. Sounds kind of… what’s the word… racist?

After Mass Slaughter, George Takei Wants Gays Disarmed


Mr. Takei wrote that the constitutional right for citizens to own, purchase and sell “semi-automatic firearms” conflicts with their right to peaceably assemble “without undue fear of being targeted or killed.”

“We appear to face a choice, because one freedom seemingly cannot be protected without limiting the other,” he argued. “Assuming the threat we face now comprises heavily-armed, homegrown religious fanatics bent on inflicting massive casualties, the logical solution is to render them less armed and less fanatical. Restricting their ability to obtain dangerous weapons domestically thus is as vital as diminishing and destroying their bases and influence overseas.”

Mr. Takei called for a “common-sense,” permanent ban on weapons “designed for mass slaughter.”

A ban on all “semi-automatic firearms” would require the confiscation of hundreds of millions of lawfully owned weapons including pistols and hunting rifles.

Ironic that a guy who was sent to a Japanese Internment Camp by a Democrat Government “for his own protection,” now totally trusts the Government* to take away his right to self-defense. Again, it’s for his own protection.

* The same Government that took a look at Omar Mateen and decided “It’s okay, he’s cool.”


Arnold Schwarzeneggar Joins the Cult of Gaia

Former gay icon, California Governor and alleged Republican Arnold Schwarzenegger has gone Full Environmentaltard. He wants everybody to become a vegan because it will please Gaia and help fight ManBearPig.

“I don’t give a damn if you believe in climate change,” Schwarzenegger wrote. “I couldn’t care less if you’re concerned about temperatures rising or melting glaciers. It doesn’t matter to me which of us is right about the science.”

Actually it does, Arnie. Because this Cult you’ve joined wants us to spend trillions of dollars to fight a threat that likely does not exist; money that could better be spent making real improvements in the lives of real people. Instead of maybe reducing global temperatures by 0.01 degrees, the money would be better spent providing energy and clean drinking water to all of Africa, or cleaning up the Pacific Garbage gyre. The ruinous taxes and regulation your Cult is proposing to fight the Demon ManBearPig will deprive millions of economic opportunities to improve their standard of living.


Virginia Is Getting Kind of Creepy and Perverted

In Virginia, a Democrat candidate for Congress is asking his supporters to send him nude pictures of a teenage girl. [Warning, the link is to the Examiner, so don’t click on it unless you want your screen to be taken over by pop-up ads for several minutes.)

Mike Dickinson, the Virginia liberal Democrat seeking the House seat currently held by Rep. Eric Cantor, R-Va., despite not being on the ballot, offered a $100,000 reward for nude photos and videos of Kendall Jones, the 19-year-old Texas Tech cheerleader who recently made news with a series of hunting photos on her Facebook page.

“I have 100k to anyone who has nude photos or videos of #kendalljones at Texas tech (sic),” Dickinson tweeted. “She deserves to be a target.”

So, not only does he want nude pictures of her, he wants them so that others will be encouraged to stalk her. #WarOnWomen much? [And apologists will argue that he’s not really a candidate and doesn’t represent the Democrat party at all, unlike that troll in Oklahoma who supposedly wanted to stone teh gheys who totes represents all Republicans.]

Also, in Virginia, the police want to give a 17 year old boy an erection and take pictures of it. (Does the Safe Schools Czar know about this?)

The authorities in Prince William County, Virginia, are pursuing child pornography charges against a 17 year old who exchanged nude picture texts with his 15-year-old girlfriend. The police have even filed a warrant that would permit them to take the teen to the hospital, give him an erection-producing injection, and photograph his penis. Prosecutors want to compare this photograph to the one the teen sent to his girlfriend, establishing that they depict the same thing.

First of all, it’s utterly nonsensical to use child pronography laws to prosecute idiot teenagers who sext each other; because idiot teenagers sexting each other is not the same as child pr0nography to any reasoning person with a functioning brain. But I guess aside from waxing their new MRAPs, the cops just don’t have a lot to do these days.

Frankly, the whole thing reminds me of that scene in Porky’s, a movie that seems quaint and wholesome by today’s degenerate standards.


Dan Savage Is a Vile, Despicable Thing

I’m not going to reproduce the latest nasty, mean-spirited comment (in Tweet form) from the gay community’s self-appointed Moral Arbiter; suffice it to say, it uses the progressive left’s very favorite word (because profanity is how weak minds attempt to express emphasis) and it is a vile insult directed at people of far superior moral character than he. You can read it at this link.

And judging by the responses to his Tweet, his followers are as vile and reprobate as he is.

University Issues “Mel Gibson-Style” Apology to Women Assaulted by Feminist Professor

In a follow-up to the incident in which a University of California Feminist Professor assaulted a teenage girl who was advocating an anti-abortion position in the university’s “Free Speech Zone,” the University has issued a fauxpology.

In a long-winded 1,000-word letter that reads more like a diatribe than a mea culpa, University of California at Santa Barbara Vice Chancellor Michael Young eventually conceded that women’s studies professor Mireille Miller-Young should not have snatched a pro-life sign from 16-year-old Thrin Short, giving backhanded praise to the framers of the Constitution.

“Our Founding Fathers – all white men of privilege, some even slave owners – got it right when designing the First Amendment of the Constitution,” Young wrote in an open memo to the student body.

The price of freedom of speech, Young was enlightened enough to acknowledge, is that students, staff and faculty must tolerate “outside groups and individuals coming here to promote an ideology, to promulgate particular beliefs (at times extreme beliefs), or simply to create discord that furthers a certain personal agenda.””Some passionately believe in their causes, while others peddle hate and intolerance with less-than-noble aims,” Young added, mentioning “evangelical types.”

Translation: “We’re sorry we violated the free speech rights of you racist, bigoted, stupid, invisible-magical-sky-god-worshipping hatemongers; rights that were granted to you by dirty, rotten white slaveowners.”

It is reminiscent of the apology Mel Gibson gave after making anti-semitic comments.


Did Jimmy address “world’s most notorious” prisons with North Koreans?

When last we heard from the worst president of the twentieth century, Jimmy Carter was accusing the nation he once led of human rights violations:

Carter also used his trip to North Korea to observe the country’s food rationing system. That the United States and South Korea have chosen “to deliberately withhold food aid to the North Korean people because of political or military issues not related is really indeed a human rights violation,” he said.

Carter had traveled to North Korea to meet with Communist Party leader Kim Jong-il, but that meeting did not take place as he had hoped.  Instead, he met with regime functionaries and came back to the West convinced of their good will.

Guess Jimmy wasn’t aware that the regime has a practice of siphoning off Western food aid to “to support Kim’s military forces.” Commenting on the Democrat’s visit to North Korea, the editors of the Wall Street Journal mince no wordst:

So let’s see. Kim Jong Il runs a dungeon of a nation whose policies cause repeated famines, but the U.S. and South Korea are morally obliged to alleviate the consequences of those policies even if this means helping the dungeon masters maintain control so they can cause more famines.

Wouldn’t it make more moral sense to try to depose the dungeon masters, or at least speak out against them? But Mr. Carter says he can’t do anything about the North Koreans, so he denounces his own country in sharper language than he dares to use against a regime that murders and imprisons its own people.

Yesterday, the New York Times reported something that a champion of human rights would clearly denounce: “North Korea’s work farms and prison factories” considered by “human rights experts” to “the world’s most notorious” are “massive and growing”:

New satellite images and firsthand accounts from former political prisoners and former jailers in North Korea have confirmed the enormous scale and bleak conditions of the penal system in the secretive North, according to a report released Wednesday by the human rights group Amnesty International.

A Tale of Two Former Presidents

First, watch a clip of the immediate past President of the United States.  Note how that good man praises two men his successor will be tapping for key national security positions, including Leon Panetta, who was a leading member of the Democratic congressional caucus when serving in the legislature and a top official in the Clinton and Obama administrations when serving in the executive branch:

(Via via a newly trentagenarian reader.) Note further this Republican former president refrains from criticizing the policies of the Democratic incumbent.

Now watch this clip of another former U.S. president.  And read this report:

Wrapping up his visit this week to Pyongyang, former President Jimmy Carter says relations between North Korea and South Korea are “currently at rock bottom.” Nonetheless, he said he believes the North is committed to getting talks underway. . . .

Carter said Thursday at a press conference in Seoul that North Korean officials had “expressed deep regret … for the loss of life” from two military attacks against South Korean targets in late 2010. But they did not apologize and suggested that they wouldn’t, the former president said.

Why does this man always take the enemies of the United States at their word?  Has any other former U.S. President so criticized his country on foreign soil?  Why hasn’t Mr. Carter focused on the real source of the starvation in North Korea, the economic system its Communist leaders have forced into place through their ideological zeal and kept in place with military might and barbaric means, including forced labor, imprisonment and torture? (more…)

Say it ain’t so, Jimmy Carter being sued for lying to us?

As he began the most welcome speech of his political career, then-President Jimmy Carter, conceding the 1980 presidential election, said that in his 1976 bid for the White House, he had promised the American people that he “would never lie to you“.  Seems that his promises like those of another Democrat to whom he is often compared have an expiration date.

Well, perhaps, Mr. Carter assumed that when he left the White House, he no longer needed to keep the promises he once made on the campaign trail.  The former president is being sued for “falsehoods“:

A $5 million lawsuit filed in federal court in New York on Tuesday against former US President Jimmy Carter and publisher Simon & Schuster alleges that Carter’s 2006 book Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid contains false information and was intended to deceive the public and promote an anti-Israel agenda. . . .

By claiming to be a Middle East expert, the suit claims, Carter and, by extension, his publisher, intentionally presented inaccurate information that was highly critical of Israel and therefore violated a New York law that makes it illegal to “engage in deceptive acts in the course of conducting business.”

Jimmy Carter, Middle East expert?  Is that like calling the guy who regularly burns your toast an expert chef?

Um, Jimmy, in a three-way race, Reagan won with a higher percentage of the vote than you attracted in a two-way race

Looks like Jimmy Carter may have won his own eponymous contest again.  Back in 2007, we awarded Dan Rather the 1st James Earl Carter Bitter Old Man Award (JEC BOMA):

Named in honor of the nation’s thirty-ninth president, the JEC BOMA honors those men over 70 who, in their dotage, by the very bitterness of their manner, follow in the footsteps of the nation’s worst president.

We have selected Mr. Carter’s name to go on the (yet to be designed trophy) for his nearly twenty-seven years of sour grapes. Having not gotten over his 1980 landslide loss to Ronald Reagan, Carter has become a perpetual critic of his successors . . . . Through the better part of his public actions since voters in 44 states rejected him, this sourpuss has helped redefine the term Bitter Old Man.

He’s still whining about the Gipper’s victory.

Hey, Jimmah, in 1980, Reagan may have got fewer than 51% of the vote; actually he had 50.75% of the popular vote, even with a third candidate in the race, a little higher share that he 50.08% you attracted in 1976 — without a third party candidate in the race. And no, John Anderson didn’t announce at the last minute.

Barney Frank To Physicians: Go Pound Sand & Leave Me Alone

Looks like Barney is now doing his best impression of Marie Antoinette.

The Boston Globe’s Names Blog, an online gossip column, reports that Rep. Barney Frank found himself in an impromptu town-hall meeting on a flight from Los Angeles to Boston. A pair of ophthalmologist sisters wanted to air their grievances about ObamaCare, but Frank was having none of it:

“They wanted to talk to me, but I apologized and said I like to read and watch on planes,” Frank told us today. “They began to talk louder and that’s when Jimmy (Ready) [Frank’s domestic partner] said, ‘If you’re trying to be bitchy, you’re doing a good job.’ “Needless to say, the women didn’t appreciate the remark, and things got heated. (Attempts to locate or ID the women were unsuccessful.) [Passenger Brooke] Sexton, who’s an HR director for the UK-based retailer All Saints Spitalfields, said flight attendants weren’t working hard enough to defuse the situation, so she got involved.

“The women had been drinking, and they were crying and shouting,” Sexton said. “They were clearly the antagonizers, and Mr. Frank was kind of minding his own business.” (She said Ready also upset another passenger, calling him “Santa Claus.) Finally, the parties calmed down and remained quiet for the rest of the flight. (Sexton was offered some complementary [sic] wine for her trouble.)

Barney Frank: Oh yeah, those annoying constituents are such buzzkills.  Especially those damn doctors who have to implement ObamaCare.  Just a bunch of drunk Tea Partiers, I tell you.  Now away with you while my partner Jimmy annoys other people on the plane — like having me here isn’t bad enough!

Keep it classy, Jimmy.  It is not a good idea to insult your Sugar Daddy’s constituents.

Guess what Barney: This is part of your job.  Take Harry Truman’s advice.

The Class of All Living Ex-Presidents (Save One)

Writing about an article in the Washington Post on Attorney General Eric Holder’s attempts to cover himself on CIA prosecutions, Michael Barone makes an interesting observation about the letter that seven former CIA directors wrote to the President, urging him “to call off Holder’s investigation“:

That [letter]’s mentioned, briefly, in the second and third paragraphs. And the article mentions as well that the seven directors served under presidents of both parties, but it denies the reader the information that the seven include all living former CIA directors except the nonagenarian Stansfield Turner and former President George H. W. Bush. Turner may be in no position to sign such a letter, while Bush, like living former presidents of both parties except for Jimmy Carter, can be presumed to be adhering to a policy of not criticizing the current incumbent.

Recall, how back in March, H.W.’s son refused to criticize the incumbent President, his successor, saying he “deserves my silence.”   Like Jimmy Carter, H.W. was voted out of office by a decisive majority (62.5% ) even greater than the percentage rejecting Jimmy (59%) and yet he managed to befriend his successor.

Why is it the Georgian, alone among ex-presidents, has continued to nurse his sour grapes.  It’s like a child throwing an extended temper tantrum . . . but for 28 years?

Well, Jimmy’s petulance does have some precedent.  Achilles refused to fight in the Trojan War for some time, nursing his grudge against Agamemnon.  But, in depicting the great warrior’s childish behavior, Homer means him to look petty, sulking while his fellows suffer and died.  The poet is setting his hero up for his ultimate transformation at the end of the epic (The Iliad).  Perhaps, Mr. Carter will experience a similar metamorphosis.

But, to do so, he must first see the folly of his ways.   Perhaps, were he not such a bitter man, filled with bile against Jews, he could learn from what we do this time of year, engaging in T’shuvah, reviewing our deeds, atoning for our faults, our sins and taking action to better ourselves.

What They’re Saying About America’s Worst President

Glenn Reynolds:

JIMMY CARTER’S RACE PROBLEM. And then there’s his more recent anti-semitiism problem. He’s a foul old man, and a disgrace to the office he once held.

It seems to me that President Carter has earned his place as if not the worst president in history, the worst president of the 20th Century.
