UF/UF 139: To Boldly Go

Fitting this podcast comes out the very day Star Trek premiered it’s very first episode so long ago. Why? Well we find out today that Nano-tube technology is being perfected, thus providing the infrastructure necessary for machines to take over. I for one welcome it. With machines and complex communication nets required to maintain their dominance comes massive amounts of air conditioning.

That’s right you heard it here first. The HVAC industry will become the greatest department in the new machine run government. Can’t wait.

Also, Hillary’s staff destroyed 14 of her Blackberries and iPads, using hammers. But that’s not important.

Until then, click and listen. You’re welcome.

UF/UF 138: Trump-topia!

It’s one thing to flip flop on an issue. It’s quite an other to flip flop your way to a dead heat in the general election polls only a few weeks after you were left for dead. But, leave it to the Donald to make the impossible possible. A few polls have him ahead of Hill-dogg now, and most have him inside the margin of error which, realistically, is a dead heat.

Add to that the reality show ring master was looking for all the world like the President when he stood at the podium next to the President of Mexico. Now when he opened his mouth…. just details people, small meaningless details.

UF/UF 137: Ain’t Over Till it’s Over

Three weeks ago we sang a dirge for Trump. He was spiraling out of control, flipping and flopping even. Who knew he would have this kind of resurgence? Well I’m not gonna say I told you so, mainly because I didn’t. All I said was, it’s a long way to November. Now, here we are; Khan is barely an afterthought, Tele-prompter Donald is staying on his prompter and his message, and he’s decided putting 11 million people on trains and sending them somewhere doesn’t sound as good out loud as it did in his head. As a result? Well he’s closing on Hill-dogg who has her own issues. Go figure.

UF/UF 135: TRUMP! and Synchronized Swimming

The Republican circus finally has their monkey. The question is can they keep his feces tossing under control till November. God this is going to be fun.

Also, were you aware synchronized swimmers at the Lympics suffer head trauma akin to NFL and NHL athletes? Me neither. We do a deep dive on that tonight. (See what I did there) Click the link you crazy monkeys and get an up close and personal of your new overlord.

UF/UF 134: The Rule of Law

Timing is everything. We went off the air just before the murder of 5 police officers in Dallas took place. If you’re looking for commentary on that, this episode is not it.

We went on the air just as the State Department announced it was re-opening it’s own internal investigation into Secretary Clinton and her illegal e-mail server.

In UF/UF 134 we roast the ridiculousness that is the FBI, DOJ, and the lack of rule of law when it comes to Secretary Clinton.

Check back next week for our thoughts on Dallas and the State Department. Until then click the link and listen to two non-lawyers try to understand the FBI and Dept of Justice.

Nadia’s story

Nadia-Taha-600x370

Nadia

On June 21st, in front of the U.S Senate Homeland Security Committee, a young lady named Nadia Murad Basee Taho  testified before the Senate Homeland Security Committee about her experiences as a young Yazidi at the hands of ISIS.

I’ve linked it below. I’ll put some excerpts in this post, but you need to read the whole thing yourself.

Here’s  the first excerpt.

Unlike others attacked, the Yazidis were denied a third choice – the ability to pay Jeziyah or leave.

Daesh said we were not “People of the Book” – essentially authorizing our men to be killed, our women and children to be enslaved, our property to be confiscated. We were powerless.

More than 3,000 Yazidi men, women and children were killed in two weeks. Hundreds of disabled and elderly that could not escape were slaughtered. Tens of thousands of Yazidi watched in a 75-mile march from Mount Sinjar without water with many getting killed along the way.

Daesh killed my mother and six brothers in one day.

Meanwhile, our esteemed Attorney General Loretta Lynch, in a speech about the Orlando shootings, said “people often act out of more than one motivation,” and Mateen’s true motive “may never be known.”

Here’s Nadia in her testimony: (I added the emphasis)

The Yazidis are experiencing holocaust anew. We suffer a human brutality, murder, sex slavery, and forced displacement.

I have seen Daesh, I have lived under their barbaric rule, I well know the Daesh intention. And they make it clear in their statements.

Daesh intends to rule and destroy the whole world.

The attack on Orlando was so motivated. San Bernardino was so motivated. I send condolences to the families and friends of all victims. There will be more.  

Orlando will be repeated if the world doesn’t put an end such terrorism. There is no sanctuary. With today’s weapons and bioterror, no place is safe for anyone!  Daesh is powerful. And it has been helped.  

In the same Senate hearing, Subhi Nahas, a Syrian refugee and a gay man, testified this:

My personal story mirrors the stories of many other LGBT individuals, but I am one of the few fortunate refugees who has been accepted for resettlement in the United States.  I fled from my country because an organized group of militants threatened me solely because they perceived me as gay.

Further:

While ISIS is in the public eye as the most notorious extremist group in Syria and Iraq, it may come as a surprise that their methodology –when it comes to the treatment of LGBT people– is similar to many other groups, including governments themselves. Government regimes in the region prescribe, at the least, harsh punishments for LGBT residents, and, at the worst, the death penalty.  There is no haven for LGBT people in Syria, even for young gay men that ISIS uses as sex slave.

And yet, our Attorney General is struggling to understanding the motive. I can only assume that as the AG, she is an intelligent woman and not a dumbass, and that the remaining option is that she’s an agenda driven liar. A not unfamiliar circumstance in this administration (It was a video, remember).

Loretta Lynch went on to say that the most effective response to terrorism “is love.”

Nadia:

I am one of thousands of Yazidi girls that were taken captive by the so-called Islamic State. I had a normal life before August 3rd 2014. I lived with my mother and siblings in peace. Our people go back thousands of years in the heartland of Mesopotamia where civilization was first started.

I was going to high school; I had dreams like every girl in the world.

I wanted to become a teacher and build a family.

My community of about half million people never harmed anyone. We lived in peace with Muslims, Christians and other groups, religious or no.

But our peaceful ways did not save us. The Islamic State militants attacked us in Sinjar with the clear intention to destroy the Yazidi people as a distinctive, non-Muslim religious group.

The Yazidis were given a choice: convert or die.

Apparently, “Love” did not work for young Nadia or the Yazidi people.

Lynch, please take a minute to read some of the testimony going on in the Senate. Your deception treats people like morons.

I hope some of those grand-standing idiots sitting on their dumb-asses in the house took a couple of minutes to download and read some of this testimony.

My last excerpt from young Nadia:

I am sad that the world doesn’t focus on bringing such genocidal perpetrators to accountability. It’s painful to me as a survivor to see a world that turns away, averting its eyes, ignoring the worst crimes.

Some are old enough to remember what happened in Germany and other places. The civilized world did not act until it was too late.

The Yazidis are experiencing holocaust anew. We suffer a human brutality, murder, sex slavery, and forced displacement.

I have seen Daesh, I have lived under their barbaric rule, I well know the Daesh intention. And they make it clear in their statements.

Daesh intends to rule and destroy the whole world.

But Loretta Lynch may never know the motive.

I’m not sure how much longer the world can endure this administration.

When the Genocide Convention was passed by the United Nations in 1948, the world said “Never Again.”

I’m always cynical when people say “If we don’t learn from history we’re bound to repeat it.”

Please, read the testimonies for yourself.
