The Morning Rant: J.V. Edition

punk-monkey.jpg

Lysenkoism, Lebensraum, Global Warming....all pseudo-scientific bullshit to prop up a twisted political ideology. But the mad Mullahs and their acolytes have managed to sound even nuttier than the Communists and the Nazis and the...um...Communists. Lest anyone think that Iran is a rational actor on the world stage, this statement should disabuse one of that notion. Shia Islam is fairly nutty, and the Iranian brand of apocalyptic nuttiness ("Twelvers) is the most common, and profoundly crazy. Compared to that, suggesting that Israel is manipulating the weather by stealing Iranian clouds and replacing them with special rainless "Jooo Clouds" seems almost sane.

Jalali in Wonderland

Earlier this week, Gen. Gholam Reza Jalali’s accused Israel of contributing to or causing Iran’s drought by stealing its clouds and snow.

“Over the past four years, the highlands from Afghanistan to the Mediterranean have been studied. The findings are that areas above 2,200 meters were full of snow but our highlands have remained dry,” Jalali, the head of Iran’s Civil Defense Organization, said.

“Joint teams from Israel and one of our neighboring countries make clouds that are entering Iran” which can’t produce rain he continued. Jalali did not specify which neighbor was aiding Israel.

“In addition to that, we have the issue of ‘cloud-stealing’ and ‘snow-stealing,’” Jalali added, but did not elaborate further.

And the American and European Left wants us to negotiate with Iran over its nuclear weapons program as if they weren't wackadoodle nut-cases who should be committed. Floods? It was THE JOOOOS! Earthquakes? GREAT SATAN! Birds flying over secret sites? ISRAELI SPY BIRDS!

Would anyone be truly surprised if 30 seconds after Iran built a functioning IRBM with a nuclear warhead they launch on Tel Aviv?

Kelsey Grammer: Reproductive Rights Is a 'Dishonest' Name for Abortion
It “gets a bit dishonest to call something reproductive rights when you clearly have a choice well before a baby is conceived,” Grammer noted, which is when reproduction actually happens.

[...]

“If someone has to die as a result of rape, then we should kill the rapist – not the unborn child,” he said. “It’s a dicey area, but if you have respect for life, and respect for choice, then you can’t take life away from an infant.”

Mike Adams and Kurt Schlichter seem to be from the same mold; never retreat, never surrender, always attack. And I love it! Oddly, that plan seems to be working for President Trump, in direct opposition to the traditional GOPe strategy of retreat at every hint of success.

Who knew?

California town official faces calls for resignation after proclaiming July 'straight pride' month
With his tongue perhaps somewhat in his cheek, Mr. Hickman reminded readers that “last week I proclaimed the Month of July as SPAM …(Straight Pride American Month)…(as Vice Mayor don’t know if I can, but what the heck).”

“Now hundreds of millions of the rest of us can celebrate our month, peaking on July 4th, as healthy, heterosexual, fairly monogamous, keep our kinky stuff to ourselves, Americans,” he wrote in the community paper for the town just west of Sacramento.

“Don’t get me wrong,” he cautioned in his column. “I support the First Amendment, as much as the next person, and support the rights of grown men to wear skin tight short-shorts and go-go boots and don tinker bell wings with wand and prance down the streets of San Francisco.”
