Happy Monday, GN!

Pranking n00bs on the job is probably some sort of hate crime nowadays, Mac. 😉

If there’s something strange in your neighborhood, who you gonna call?

Something strange was found in Elizabeth, NJ this morning: more farking bombs:

An improvised explosive device in a backpack detonated near the Elizabeth train station early Monday as authorities were using a bomb robot to examine the item, officials said.

The blast occurred around 12:40 a.m. near Morris Avenue and Julian Place. The explosion was not a controlled blast, but happened unintentionally as the robot was cutting the device, according to Mayor Christian Bollwage. No one was injured in the blast, Bollwage said.

Authorities found five devices inside a single backpack near the train station, including one that was detonated. After the explosion, press and bystanders were moved back because the four other explosive devices inside of the backpack were still believed to be live, Bollwage said.

Criminy.

We should be talking about Trump’s racist antics, not bombs, Fatwa. Must focus on what is important.

Of course this should be of first concern:

Hai, Sven!

Love the “Islam is peace” BS; that never gets old. I wonder if various Mohammedan spokesholes have any idea what a real “backlash” from Americans might be like.

I think not.

Good morning, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, and Sven!

Love the thread-gif, Mac!

Yes, by all means, let’s focus on what the MSM and our “leaders” want us to focus on what’s important.

Hi, Cap’n Mac!

Poor pupper in a walking cast…but cuteness unto the day.

And cheers to whoever changed teh background image today. (Looks like the work of our beloved host; let me know if I’m mistaken, please.)

Just read the suspect in the Chelsea, NYC bombing (and possibly others) has been taken into custody after a gunfight in NJ. Good!

Meanwhile, President 4Putt’s spoxhole, Josh Earnest, reminds us that there are millions of patriotic Muslims in America and we aren’t in a war with Islam. Oh, and we’re in a war of narratives with ISIL. I’m sure that will be a comfort to those who were injured by the narrative blast on Saturday.

Too bad Don “Movie Trailer Guy” LaFontaine is dead. Best. Narrator. Ever. 😉

Another major -- yet unsurprising -- cock-up by DHS: Feds wrongly granted citizenship to hundreds facing deportation.

More than 800 illegal immigrants from countries of concern who were set for deportation were mistakenly granted U.S. citizenship because the Department of Homeland Security didn’t have their fingerprints on file, according to an internal audit released Monday.

The Homeland Security Department’s inspector general found the immigrants used different names or birthdates to apply for citizenship with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration. In the case of 858 immigrants from “special interest countries or neighboring countries with high rates of immigration fraud,” the discrepancies weren’t caught because their fingerprints were missing from government databases.

A few even managed to get aviation or transportation worker credentials, though they were later revoked. One became a law enforcement officer.

[Insert string of extremely angry invective here]

And they’re going to vet thousands of Syrian “refugees”, eh?

I’m sure someone just checked the wrong box: Deport Naturalize. The boxes are probably right next to each other on the form. Honest mistake. Anyone could have done it. Let’s move on and talk about how racist Trump is.

In all honesty, what famous quote pops into my head at least once a day lately?

“We are so fu*ked.”
