'Captain America: Civil War' trailer -- first look!
Here it is -- the first look at Captain America: Civil War due out May 6th, 2016:
Was that ... the Black Panther I saw? I believe it was!
I'll be interested to see just how much they play up the "We want Bucky Barnes" angle vs. the whole "superhero registration" thingie. In the comics, Tony Stark was turned into an ogre, completely obliterating the history of his character, not to mention we were supposed to feel sympathy for Cap and his team.
This is how you gotta love the "logic" "progressive" comics creators -- law-abiding Americans (or whoever) are supposed to register and/or give up their guns as a means of personal protection ... but don't dare advocate that a superhuman -- who might be able to single-handedly blow up an entire city -- register himself with the feds!!

Quote of the Day
"Notice that ISIS does something terrible, and the overwhelming thrust of the conversation on Meet the Press is that the American people have done something wrong and must look inside their hearts and feel guilty over the overwhelming racism and Islamaphobia in their society. News flash: We're not the villains here." -- Jim Geraghty

The answer to France's Muslim problem
This guy gets it:
They have to clean their own house. We have to help them.

The hilarious cognitive dissonance of the Left
This image was making the rounds yesterday and earlier today on social media:
Now, anyone remember how "progressives" let George W. Bush have it for supposedly ignoring that PDB -- President's Daily Brief -- a few months into his presidency that said al Qaeda was determined to strike against the US? And then 9/11 happened?
Now, however, these same "progressives" are excoriating the "right-wing" for wanting to cease allowing refugees in to the country (or, at least their state) because, supposedly, no refugee has ever committed a terrorist act here yet.
But here is ISIS saying just what they want to do. And they've already gotten Russia (bombing of the airliner), and now France.
I'd call it hilarious if it wasn't so damn stupid.

Moonbat comics creators on the Paris terror attacks
You knew it was gonna happen -- the usual comicbook 'bats have chimed in with their "superior" intellects about the terror attacks in France last Friday ... because, after all, they're soooo smart. Because they write comics. And have thousands of Twitter followers.
Here's Captain America scribe Nick Spencer saying that the LAST thing we need to do is ... stop allowing mid-east refugees into our countries:
The GOAL for ISIS is that we stop accepting these refugees. People pretending to 'get tough' are actually caving in to enemy's demands.— Nick Spencer (@nickspencer) November 14, 2015
The world helping these refugees has been a real PR problem for ISIS. The world turning on them now would be their best recruiting tool.— Nick Spencer (@nickspencer) November 14, 2015
Can you believe this? ISIS -- is worried about public relations! A genocidal terror group was pissed off at the world assisting the people they scared out of their own homes, most especially at how "it would make them look." Who knew??
Folks, it doesn't get much more progressive-elitist bullshittery than that.
Here's our 'ol pal Ron Marz:
The last time there was an attack this horrific, our foolish response gave the terrorists exactly what they wanted. Let's not do that again.— Ron Marz (@ronmarz) November 14, 2015
Wait -- you mean we shouldn't have responded by attacking Afghanistan??
Then there was this retweet by Marz, Mark Waid and Kurt Busiek:
Before I log off, I leave you with this. It's maybe the most important thing to know about the Paris attack. pic.twitter.com/x57bXmpOYP— Hend Amry (@LibyaLiberty) November 14, 2015
I really would like to hear what these geniuses suggest the West do. Of course Western nations have to balance the civil rights of its Muslim citizens with that of (militarily) responding to groups like ISIS. But, unfortunately, groups like ISIS understand only one thing: force. To suggest we can actually reason with these barbarians is akin to believing Bernie Sanders can actually pay for all the things he is promising Americans in his presidential campaign.
The sad fact of the matter is that ISIS knows it can count on touchy-feelie types like these dopes to disseminate memes like the above. Face it: there was NO massive anti-Muslim backlash after 9/11, no matter what "progressives" tell you. The Left fears the "dreaded" right-wing -- and groups like the NRA -- more than they fear radical Islamist groups. Remember, Hillary Clinton referred to the GOP as her "enemy," not ISIS or al Qaeda, or anyone like that.
President Lemon immediately went after the NRA and believers in the 2nd Amendment after shootings in Roseburg, Oregon. But Friday after the France attacks? "I don't want to speculate." Absolutely unbelievable.
Speaking of Bernie Sanders (and not France related), here's Marz again:
#DemDebate is a conversation between intelligent adults, It's refreshing. (Small number of participants helps.)— Ron Marz (@ronmarz) November 15, 2015
Uh huh: Bernie Sanders says climate change causes terrorism. Hillary Clinton uses 9/11 to defend her Wall Street connections.
Real "high bar" 'ya have there, Ronnie.
Lastly, this may be the most sensible tweet of all:
I feel like everyone is suddenly an expert on everything related to terrorism, and I feel like I know nothing at all.— GAIL SIMONE (@GailSimone) November 16, 2015
"I feel like I know nothing at all." The reason for that is simple, Gail: Because you don't.

Why are Ron Marz, Mark Waid, Kurt Busiek, Nick Spencer, and Erik Larsen racists?
I mean, why else would they tweet stuff like this?
Ben Carson seems like a pleasant man who is crazy. https://t.co/4KOr28WHLA— Ron Marz (@ronmarz) November 6, 2015
Really, though, I must insist that we all begin referring to him as "televangelist Ben Carson." That's all he is.— Mark Waid (@MarkWaid) November 6, 2015
I don't know why the media are obsessed with this Carson grain pyramid thing when he definitely thinks a man lived inside a whale.— Nick Spencer (@nickspencer) November 6, 2015
And retweets by Busiek and Larsen:
Geez Ben Carson is lying about everything pic.twitter.com/fKVM4PhCfc— Matthew A. Cherry (@MatthewACherry) November 8, 2015
Hey Ben Carson, at this point in your craziness? Just say you're Iron Man. What could it hurt?— Patton Oswalt (@pattonoswalt) November 6, 2015
Aren't these special.
Need I remind you what these hypocritical dolts would be tweeting if such was being said about candidate Barack Obama?
Let's take a little gander at a comparison of the two African-Americans -- the president and the would-be president:
Early years and academics:
Ben Carson has admitted to being a punk in school. Born in Detroit and raised by a single mother, Carson lived through what many would call the “black experience.” But his mother wouldn’t let Ben become a statistic. She forced him to read and not watch TV. When Ben was 14, he made a turnaround which he has credited to his faith and good decisions. He cleaned up his act, got great grades and “had the highest S.A.T. in 20 years Detroit had seen.” His stellar academic record is what prompted the West Point’s informal “offer” which he didn’t accept. Yeah, that’s the “controversy.” No, really. That’s the entire controversy. Ben Carson applied to and was accepted at Yale. The only school to which he applied, by the way.
Barack Obama was raised by his white mother in Hawaii. He moved around, including some time spent in Indonesia. He was accepted to Occidental College after high school. His grades are unknown, his SAT score is unknown but from all relevant accounts, was likely below average. So for most information, we just have to take Obama’s word for it. Lucky for us, Obama admits to being a “loafer” who “abused drugs” which isn’t exactly how premier students at either Columbia and Harvard describe themselves…
Obama’s academic records from Columbia and Harvard are still sealed. The media has not investigated at all, because they don’t want to know, and they don’t want the rest of us to know.
Actually, Obama's academic records are not "sealed" by any legal order ... just at relevant folks' request. No essential difference, really.
Ben Carson spent a great deal of time learning medicine, and therefore likely spent the majority of his time with neurosurgeons. Call it a hunch. He also served on the boards of many businesses.
Barack Obama has associated with marxists and terrorists: Frank Marshall Davis a communist poet, Weather Underground terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dorn, David Axelrod and many other “questionable” people. Don’t worry. Whenever anyone found out about them, he immediately threw them under the bus.

Even the mainstream press admitted they didn't know much about candidate Obama:
It's their own fault ultimately, of course.
As for stupid statements, the media has been on Carson's case for utterances about the Egyptian pyramids, the Founders, and his faith. But what about Boss Obama?
- "I've now been in 57 states -- I think one left to go."
- Lied about his mother being denied healthcare coverage.
- Concocted phony "composite women" in his Dreams of My Father.
- Lied about his uncle liberating the Auschwitz concentration camp.
- Lied about the Selma march being the inspiration for his conception.
- Lied about his step-grandfather dying while fighting Dutch troops.
- Lied about racism being the reason he didn't start on his HS basketball team and for him and a black classmate being "shunned."
- Lied about his father serving in World War II.
Look, anyone with half a brain knows that Carson is getting this frenzied treatment because he's a Republican. The media shrugged (and shrugs) at Obama's whoppers with a "Wellll, he embellished a little, yeah ... maybe misremembered some details ... so what?"
It's just like how Dan Quayle's boneheaded gaffes meant he was as dumb as a slice of bread, but Joe Biden? "Just Joe being Joe." Nothing to see here.
In conclusion, the media and "progressives" in general have themselves to blame for the complete skepticism of many folks when it comes to scrutiny of Ben Carson and other GOP pols. Which is a shame because if/when one of these folks do utter a legitimately huge whopper (which Carson's West Point saga was not), a sizable segment of the population simply won't believe it.
As for Marz, Waid and the rest of the moonbat comics creators -- you reap what you sow. Racists.

Dan Slott needs help -- please rally so he gets it
If you've ever needed proof that Spider-Man writer Dan Slott is literally beyond obsessed with what people think of him and his work, look no further than this video:
In a word, WOW.
It's bad enough that the little gnome routinely monitors what critic Doug Ernst writes about him (and subsequently whines about on social media), but this is just, dare we call it ... psychotic?
Why is Mark Waid a racist?
I mean, why else would he tweet something like this?

New 'Star Trek' TV series coming
Details are few at this juncture, but hey, so what?
What would you like to see in the new series?
Will it be set in the "old" Trek universe, or new? Past, present or future?
Personally, I'd love to see a sort of "Love Boat/Fantasy Island" format where we see a different story every week populated by different cast members, different vessels, and different periods of time. I know it's highly unlikely and would make headaches for those interested in canon, but who cares?
If not that, I'd like to see what's been up in the "old" Trek-verse, maybe some years after "Next Generation." It'd be most interesting to see how the Federation is dealing with the post-Dominion War, the Borg, and destruction of Romulus.
That's a real cryin' shame

The mind behind the current Captain America
Check out this tweet:
My mind is still blown by the idea that CNBC is liberal media now tho— Nick Spencer (@nickspencer) October 30, 2015
Anyone -- ANYONE -- who doesn't believe that anything associated with NBC News is left-leaning is so full of self-delusion and reality denial as to defy description.
And this is who Marvel is hiring these days.
