Irony Man

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.

Circumstances Beyond Our Control

Readers- Believe it or not, it actually takes a modicum of focused thought to do each post on Hope n' Change, and that simply proved impossible today owing to a personal situation which has now been successfully resolved. But rather than leave you in the lurch (as we like to say to John Kerry), here are some cartoons from the vaults which still have something to say about current (and sadly recurrent) stories.

Regarding the wave of accusations about "fake news," Hope n' Change thinks we all know how the game is really played...

And Brian Williams is leading the charge against "fake news?" Really...?!

Meanwhile, as yet another parting gift from the outgoing president, Barack Obama has declared that our nation is still suffering from the effects of slavery. And he makes an interesting point, since by almost every available metric, things have gotten much worse for black Americans...over the last 8 years.

Okay, things haven't gotten worse for EVERY black family...
Ever the whining grievance-monger, Obama has never been shy about bemoaning "the blood of slaves" which courses through the veins of his privileged wife and daughters. But it was only in 2012 that a lone researcher surmised that there might be a scintilla of slave's blood in Obama. Inherited from his white mother's side rather than from Barack senior...

Meanwhile, Barry is criticizing Donald Trump for missing some daily intelligence briefings (a criticism which we find valid, by the way), and saying that a president is "flying blind" without those briefings. But why in the name of Beelzebub's blast furnace didn't anyone say that to Obama for the last 8 years?!

Some reports say that Barry skipped as many as two thirds of his intelligence briefings, including the one the morning after the Benghazi debacle. Instead of attending the briefing, he flew to Las Vegas for a fundraiser at which he compared the "sacrifices" of Democratic fundraisers to the sacrifices of four still-warm murdered Americans. The miserable rat bastard.

Okay, Happy Hour is officially on...which means it's time for us to take time off. Hopefully everything will be back to normal here (or as close as it ever gets) on Friday!

Russian to Judgement

obama, obama jokes, political, humor, cartoon, conservative, hope n' change, hope and change, stilton jarlsberg, russia, hacking, investigation, asshole, hillary, election

Barack Obama has ordered a "full review" of cyber-chicanery associated with the 2016 elections, under the belief that Russia may have tampered with our sacred voting process by somehow having created a 30 year history of corruption by Hillary Clinton and everyone she's ever been in contact with.

Where do we even begin? The CIA - no doubt under orders and perhaps the threat of waterboarding - has issued a strong but factually vague statement that people who may have connections to people who may be Russian may have provided Wikileaks with vast amounts of hacked information about Hillary's decades-long history of sleazy deals and ineptitude, which may have influenced the election because (unlike most information given to voters) it was all true.

The accusations would be more plausible if the CIA, FBI, and DOJ weren't so thoroughly compromised by their own political cover-ups and scandals at this point. As their main mission is now the protection of undeserving Democratic asses, we're not exactly impressed with anything they're saying now.

And just how "meta" is the accusation that Russia tried to corrupt our election process by releasing proof (and plenty of it) that Hillary and the DNC had already corrupted the election process? Who's the actual criminal here, and who's simply a witness?

Hope n' Change actually thinks it pretty unlikely that Russia had anything to do with the release of damning information about Hillary and her cohorts in crime. After all, if they had hacked all this dirt (not to mention every Top Secret hosted on her email server) wouldn't they want Hillary to win so that they'd own an American President because of all the blackmail potential?

That's why we think it far more likely that the source of the hacked material was an individual patriot from the Democratic party or a domestic intelligence agency who saw this as the only way to save America from a corrupt, shrieking, money-grubbing, two-faced, brain-damaged harpy with a gift for screwing up every policy issue she's ever touched.

Obama's highly publicized demand for a report on computer espionage is supposed to be rushed to his Oval Office desk (no doubt to be left between his fingernail clippings and scuff marks from the heels of his shoes), but the results may never be made public. Which is hardly surprising, considering that the actual purpose of Obama's call for an investigation is simply to delegitimize the upcoming Presidency of Donald Trump.

In other words, a hostile government really is trying to subvert the will of American voters. It just happens to be the government currently in Washington.
