Right, Charles. Although it’s literally true that the pre-election surveillance was not “wiretapping” per se, yet that’s the vernacular term for spying, by whatever means, and it was done illegally via the Obama Administration. Hell, even the left wing media confirmed it.
Charles, how are you benefiting by promoting such easily debunked propaganda? You have to be getting bucks for sucks because no sentient with a soul would post that kinda garbage.
On a lighter note, how about posting a guitar etude or two? Maybe even something you composed yourself. Every single talented guitar player I’ve ever met recorded him/herself playing solo because there’s a big ego involved, like yours.
Post it and we’ll promote it. You have nothing to lose, and it might boost your self-serving GoFundMe account.
Then there’s this. Charles threw Little Debbie under the bus.
Keep your heads down, folks. That’s some serious squirrelly.
Wow. Now Charles Johnson is going after The Gray Lady, aka, The New York Times. Never mind that the NYT states the obvious, that people all over the world are fed up with squishy politicos who allow islamic terrorism to proliferate by rolling their eyes and saying “Can’t we all just get along?” or “We’re all for diversity, no matter the cost,” or more often, “Fuck it. We’re caving.”
Terrorists are essentially cowards, yet they’re still dangerous. The political left seems to think that giving them RC Cola and Little Debbie snack cakes will get them to the poker table, while the political right knows that an enemy won’t negotiate until he’s shoved face down into the sandbox and forced to eat worms.
So, Charles. Would you rather hug a jihadist or make him eat worms? If you’d rather pass on embarrassing yourself, we’ll provide one or more of your archived answers and repost them for you.
Something flew up Charles Johnson’s HooHah recently that got him to post a series of Tweets attacking the late Michael Crichton. Unfortunately, Mr. Crichton isn’t around to defend himself, so he’s an easy target for Mr. Hypocrisy.
Michael Crichton was a successful formulaic novelist who based his themes on research. Many of his novels had similar characters thrown into similar situations with similar challenges, yet they were entertaining. “Jurassic Park” may be his most famous work. My favorite was “Eaters of the Dead,” a retelling of Beowulf with the hypothesis that Grendel was not a dragon but a tribe of mountain Neanderthals carrying torches to drive out the invaders.
In “State of Fear” Crichton used his typical formula for a fast-paced novel, but the Appendices were where the meat was. He included graphs and links to data sites (including NASA) to show that Global Warming was little but promoted hysteria based upon false assumptions. Shortly after SoF was published, NASA took down the referenced links, and subsequent edited copies of the book deleted reference to them. Someone got pantsed.
Now back to Charles Johnson. Why is he suddenly bothering with a novel from ten years ago? He fights with a dead man, offers no evidence to contradict Crichton’s sources, and remains an ignorant blowhard. Charles, your a mess.
Update: Charles was indeed a fan of Michael Chrichton, as evidenced by his comment on 4 March 2007:
From the BRC Archives, we found these wonderful posts:

Folks, what we have here is a typical case of lefty role reversal. To divert attention away from the fact that a link to a really nasty personal attack was left on Mudfilter’s front page for several hours — on Easter morning, mind you — it’s now become a matter of the “group think” at LGF. We’re all supposed to be ashamed and I’m supposed to be humble. And even pointing it out is called a bad thing.
Just observe the tactics at work.

cedar: you’re really starting to show your jerk badge.
The “Nuke Mecca crowd,” as you put it, does not appear on the front page.
“A dumb post.” I’m trying to remain level-headed here. But someday I’d like to see how you react if you wake up on a nice Easter morning and find the Mudfilter slimeballs chuckling and patting each other on the back at how clever they are for comparing you to Adolf Hitler’s girlfriend.
In an ugly polka dot dress to boot.
Right, but that’s just “dumb.” Whereas, pointing it out is “shameful, hypocritical, disingenuous,” etc. etc. etc. retch.
That “dumb” post stayed up for almost 6 hours, until I linked to it. I’m pretty sure that if I hadn’t linked to it, it would have remained.
Now go away, you pest.

re: #35 wrenchwench
Hinderaker had to know that his greeting card source was ludicrous. But he used it anyway.
He probably also knows Obama made a very nice Easter statement — after all, he apparently read my post which contained the video of that statement. But he insisted Obama said “nothing.”
They just lie, blatantly.

re: #116 alexknyc
I may be late on this one but I think Easter 2008 occurred in March.
I’m sure there was nothing proclaimed then either but accuracy does count for something.
Thanks for pointing that out — I added the proclamations for March 2008, and of course there’s no Easter proclamation then either.

re: #19 Obdicut
Obama hates Easter so much he had a prayer breakfast for it.

A Bruce Tomaso notes at Dallas News, not only are there no official Presidential Proclamations for Easter since at least 1980, there don’t appear to be any official proclamations for Muslim holidays either.
Nice reverence, Charles. Now go suck an egg.
Okay, Charles, let’s go. You posted it.
Yeah. Now what did you leave out of that brilliant piece of cut-n-paste “journalism”, Charles? Did you even read the article from the Washington Post? Did you miss the facts? The innuendo?
During an interview with the Washington Post editorial page staff in March 2016, Trump identified Page, who had previously been an investment banker in Moscow, as a foreign policy adviser to his campaign. Campaign spokeswoman Hope Hicks later described Page’s role as “informal.”
Page has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing in his dealings with the Trump campaign or Russia.
“This confirms all of my suspicions about unjustified, politically motivated government surveillance,” Page said in an interview Tuesday. “I have nothing to hide.” He compared surveillance of him to the eavesdropping that the FBI and Justice Department conducted against civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr.
Every President in US history, including President Trump, has employed experts with experience dealing with foreign trade partners. Hell, the United States probably wouldn’t even exist had it not been for Franklin successfully negotiating with DuPont.
Why would the Obama Administration direct the FBI to investigate legal business practices? Okay, that’s a rhetorical question because the answer is obvious.
Does the FBI know that Charles Johnson threatened people with a Mossberg? I’ll bet they do.
Charles, you’re a mess.
P.S. “Tick Tock” is a threat meme used by Anonymous and other splinter vigilante groups. You playing footsie with them again, Charles, or did you make amends with your ex-buddy Barrett Brown?
Charles Johnson Promotes Shinola Again: Planned Parenthood closing had nothing to do with HIV outbreak in rural Indiana in 2015.Posted: April 7, 2017
We’re gonna tear this one apart, Charles. You ready?
Let that sink in for a minute. According to Charles Johnson, defunding Planned Parenthood caused an outbreak in HIV infection in rural Indiana.
That photo was taken by Paul Sableman at 30 South 3rd Street in downtown Terre Haute, Indiana in 2011. Not exactly rural, but geography isn’t Johnson’s strong suit. This particular clinic operated with limited hours for several years, until Planned Parenthood decided to close that location. So what.
Here’s the problem.
The closing of a Planned Parenthood clinic in Terre Haute had nothing to do with an outbreak of HIV in Austin, Indiana, 130 miles and 2-1/2 hours drive time away. Austin is a small rural town of about 4,300 people and it has a drug problem. It’s closer to Louisville Kentucky and Cincinnati Ohio than it is to Terra Haute Indiana.
Apparently Planned Parenthood closed the clinic on South 3rd Street on or about July 2016 (prior to the presidential election) yet they still have local clinics elsewhere. A search of zipcode 47807 on their own website turns up 10 clinics in or near Terre Haute. A search of clinics in zipcode 47102 results in another 10 clinics in or near Austin, Indiana.
So the premise is false, and Charles Johnson is promoting an easily disputable lie.
The HIV outbreak happened in March 2015, affected about 190 people, and was due to needle sharing. The idiots were injecting a liquid version of Opana ER (oxymorphone) an opiate painkiller. In other words, an astounding 4% of the residents of Austin fucked themselves up by sharing HIV-infected needles. That’s not Planned Parenthood’s fault, the fault of the Religious Right or that of conservative politicians. It’s the fault of brain-dead white trash morons who did it to themselves.
BTW, Dillo Bush is the Mayor of Austin, Indiana, and he’s a Democrat, not that it matters…
Charles, you used to pride yourself with fact-checking before posting stupidity. What happened?
