TRUTH, A SAD ONE

You really can get kids to do whatever you want. This is not a worthwhile ritual. It does look like one but I'd buy the ammo if they went after the ones that put them there. I'm cheap. I'd issue swords and tell to use the damn bayonet. My grandparents are buried there.

My wars were the little ones. Nobody noticed. and my computer is overheating to death, thank you Ohio.

I WAS TALKING

like I do. I was telling the woman I love about the Newport I knew and loved. I took her there once and showed it to her, the places I lived, the places I'd gone to school. I talked about the last of the fossil fueled super carriers and how they ended up at the same dock that played host to two LNG tanker ships that were so poorly built they could not be sold and the USCG would not give anybody a licence to tow them away to be broken up, so they mouldered away at the destroyer pier where, once upon a time, my first ship sailed from. When I was just starting out on that journey to be an officer, the 'gunny' had us run over there every morning before breakfast. It left me with an enduring dislike of breakfast.

Newport, Rhode Island and Maine, were never places where I used to toss in that phrase that every single one of us learned from watching Deliverance. If we hear banjo music, we run away.

Right over there, sort of close to piers was the Middleton Housing area where a friend of mine lived with his wive. They were musical. He could play any stringed instrument like a maestro and she could play their piano in that tiny place like a goddess of music. They used to entertain. They threw a dinner party every week and they would play, long into the night and those who could, would play alongside. Magical nights.

This, was decades before the carriers showed up on their route to destruction but, as I recall, the LNG elephants were there.

so, anyway, enjoy

ON POORISTAN

No, no. A million times no.


I never watched it but I heard that 'reality tv' was all about voting losers off the island. I sure as hell don't want every democrat lawmaker with property in Pooristan as my huckleberry. Do I get a vote?

Why would we want more idiots who voted themselves beer and perogis to the tune of $75 BILLION in debt? We used to just bomb them but if they are serious about joining us, can we at least send these losers to Detroit and Chicago or California? Yeah, I know, John McCain will lead a progressive bipartisan sortie to bring them here and bail them out. That's the kind of rethuglican he is. Could I hire one of those demons from the Hellmouth that used to die for Buffy? .....just for a day or two. I'll give it back, no scratches or blemishes.

DIRT REPELLENT

In my youth, I used to be a newsman. I would deliver the news to a grateful (paying) public. I delivered the news on a bike. In Newport it rained a good deal and had weather leaving puddles and bikes would happily cast it up on me as I did my newshawk thing. People like these girls always impressed the hell out of me. It held true everywhere I went outside Europe and the Middle East. They didn't have washing machines and had to wash this sort of thing by hand and yet, it was always spotless. And they rode bikes all the time. When I rode I always ended up covered in mud.




I'm pretty sure they're all aliens.

MEMPHIS

A long time ago I took some time off to explore both Tennessee and Texas with an eye to moving there. There was some charm to both. I liked San Antonio and the River Walk, but I wouldn't want to live there. I actually liked Knoxville but, I wouldn't want to live there. By the point I had reached in my life, they were small towns and there was absolutely nothing at all beyond the city's edge. My daughter came along. She was all of 3 at the time.

What I remember about Memphis was how nice it was. I really enjoyed Mud Island. If you haven't been there, go. You can walk down the full length of the Mississippi River and you won't regret it. .....don't move there, you'd regret that. 

In Memphis, the city father's, at the urging of the Justice Department, decided to break up the crime reservations and spread the criminals across the length and breadth of the city and screw the people that lived there. I didn't like that approach. Deciding to spread out the kind of people that would, without a thought, with malice oozing out their nostrils, simply raise a gun and blow the head of any person that irked them, was kind of like, Oh, I don't know, inviting umpteem million islamic terrorists to move in next door. I decided to stay in San Diego. I prefer life with the head I have.

All this was prelude to playing a song I like and which I inflict on you without mercy. Enjoy. The show was absolutely fantastic and just like Firefly and too many others, I wish I had been around to watch it in realtime and thus keep it alive for a second or 5th season. 

Oh, and some of you would enjoy the book, Marooned in Real Time.

ON QATAR

I spent a lot of time there. It was civilized. More will follow. I liked Qatar. The ruling family is nuts but the rest of the place is okay.

I am also just about convinced that one of the impacted wisdom teeth I ignorned decades ago is resurfacing and I don't have a dentist. I don't even know a dentist. I had a LCDR dentist straddle my chest while chipping away at the last wisdom tooth with a hammer and a pair of pliers. I lost interest in preventive dental care right about then, there in the middle of the Indian Ocean.

IN THE FRAME

I liked this painting when first I saw it. I still do.

There was a place, once, that hung a copy on the wall in front of gentlemen using the facilities.

To this day, I laugh.

Thank you Reidy O'Neal and the Lighthouse in Oakland.

THEY FOLLOW

Supposedly in the former european countries, the forces of law and order just follow around behind the terrorists to sort of clean up and stuff. I think we need a new FBI. The same thing happened in London. There were 'security' cops right there waiting for the terrorists to give in to their urge to kill and then they acted.

Naaa, I made the last sentence up but the first sentence, that's the truth.

Do you ever wonder how different things would be if the jihadists targeted the kids of the elite and governing class, the judges, their wives and kids? Yeah, me neither.

SWEET BABY JESUS!

This from the Time Lord running the DNC's computer war against civilization:
Supporters of the Democratic National Committee were especially incensed by her criticism of the party organization, Politico said. Andrew Therriault, who served as the DNC’s director of data science until last June, called Clinton’s claims “f–king bulls–t” in tweets that were later deleted.
“This is all about the last campaign. And really, what Democrats should be focusing on, and what I think Hillary Clinton should be figuring out, is how do we empower the DNC to have the best data resources to win races this year, in 2018 and 2020,” a former DNC aide told the Web site.
EMPOWER THE DNC!!!!!! Good grief, they have all the computers of the NSA working for them. What do they want, Yoda and some of the Force?

STUPID RUNS RAMPANT IN BALTIMORE

Can you imagine teaching in a school system where exactly no students could pass a test? I wonder how indescribably grim and horrible a school must be where whatever it is they do there, it doesn't include studying English or math. Don't get me wrong, I hated to study English and math but I knew that me being there from daybreak until dusk was the price I was going to pay irregardless of whether or not I actually learned anything and I might as well apply myself to learning.

I still can't write but my math is precious to me because it is such a rare and confined little smattering of arithmetic. All the stuff with x's, imaginary numbers and anything in brackets is lost and gone forever and might never have been if you look at my school transcripts. Still. I can do arithmetic and long division and there was never in my life anytime that I needed to work out the square root of anything or calculate the area under the slope of any given line.

As a Fire Control Officer on a missile firing destroyer I had one occasion to use math. I had to calculate the super elevation of the missile launcher and put that number into the missile firing plan that I wrote for our one and only missile shoot after we left Todd Shipyard and the tender mercies of NSWS. Oddly enough, that is pronounced as 'nemesis' and by God they were mine. Anyhow, a little geometry remained and was just enough to calculate the angle for a plan that nobody else ever read and, from the results, nobody who was briefed on it, paid any attention to.

How do I know that? Well, throughout the plan I plagiarized the crap of the Pacific Missile Range's plans for missile firing ships which included multiple and repeated warning about NOT RECOVERING any drones that suffered their expected fate and GOT SHOT DOWN. We no sooner shot down the BQM-34 and the CO was putting the rudder hard over to head to the scene of the splash and start recovering the debris. It took the Range Safety Officer tugging on his cape to keep the CO from salvaging the slivers that remained afloat and hauling them aboard. It was a very weird ship.

But back to Baltimore. Why? Why would ANYBODY spend their life teaching in a place like that where nobody at all, not one, wants to learn? It must be nothing more than a nursery school for older kids who must hate being there even more than the teachers hate it. It's like Hell with a school bus.

I don't think there could ever be a dawn that breaks where students or teachers get up and actually look forward to the 8 hours they're going to spend in confinement with the drug dealers, pushers, rapists, murderers and whatnot because what do you get out of a school system that fails to instruct in civilization? You get anti-civilization and you get it good and hard.

My God, can you imagine employers in and around Baltimore who need to hire workers, counter help, cashiers, stock boys? Where do they get employees and do they dread hiring the way I dread going to the dentist? You know who else can't use people from these schools? Yeah, the employer of last resort (supposedly). The Armed Forces make you take a test before they let you in and if you fail the test, they don't want you. Thank God!

Public schools are mandated by the law. They used to have fairly robust organizations devoted to seeing that everyone attended school, everyone had their shots up to date, everybody could pass a physical exam and read an eye chart and everyone got exposed to math, history and English. Civil society thought they were the basic grounding for leading an exemplary American life. For some time now everyone has been content with the old fake it till you make it school of thought and that is what we are turning out; little toxic blooms of anti-civilization to dwell in the deep city and keep alive a world out of time. They prey on civilization and as long as they last, they insist that they are smarter than you.

In the war we never fought we used to describe incoming soviet missiles hitting 'important' targets because they, like us, were targeting cities. As one looks back to that non-war, one wonders.....How many cities could we trade in the calculus of thermo-nuclear war? We could easily start with Baltimore. If you read the words to the side of this post, you can see how I feel about the old cities.

These schools are literally across the street from me. There's 3 of them. They're all 100 years old. As you can see, the fabric of civilization quickly decays.

Elementary School

Still the elementary school

Middle School


Middle School again.

School across the street cornerstone
I remember driving by a Nashville school with a similar cornerstone. I thought it remarkable that children could still learn in such an old building. In retrospect, nothing remarkable about it. Kids haven't changed, instruction should not have changed and the surroundings are a mere bagatelle.

It's not the fabric of the school or school system that need to change. They have worked for generations. I think perhaps some people have lost the bubble on how to teach and perhaps, have failed to learn that you cannot teach all of the people. For the good of all, some need to go because they ruin it for all. Baltimore leads the pack of diminishing returns.

A VERY DIFFERENT PLACE

The last late night talk show I enjoyed vanished a long time ago. This is a window into that vanished era. Follow the ashes.

CITIES IN FLIGHT

A very good read. A dystopian book that I enjoyed. Those are rare. Something I was reading tonight triggered a flashback to the story of New York City in flight under Mayor Amalfi. I think it was the Mad Dogs of Thor V. It was definitely Russian. They drive like my sister.

You might enjoy this no pasaran piece. It talks about the media. As a former, respected member of the media (I used to have a paper route for the astute Newport Daily News), he makes some excellent points about how things are going in my second profession.

On the gripping hand, read and enjoy.

IS BRITAIN A THIRD WORLD COUNTRY

I wonder because I read the poorly written UK Daily Mail which stopped proofreading its headlines or articles ages ago but still carries the news of the kingdom. On Saturday night, while reading about the enormous crowds stranded at Heathrow this weekend, I reflected on how low the British have sunk.

The shadow PM and his shadow Defense Minister both love the IRA and won't hear a word against the atrocities carried out by the IRA as they bombed and murdered their way through much of Britain and some of Ireland. The Labor Party don't care. They don't give a damn because they're really hardline communists and you cannot make an omelette without gassing or murdering 200,000 kulaks.

British Air went into a complete software meltdown as the weekend started and the staff all promptly went home at the end of working hours. Probably because BA is owned by a Spanish company and they could lose their jobs for working unsanctioned overtime.

Incredibly dangerous, scary, easily identifiable anti-British, anti-western scumbags known to the police, can blow up and murder just as many people as they want and the ruling class don't care. They don't give a shit.

Incredibly dangerous, scary, easily identifiable anti-British, anti-western scumbags known to the police, can groom, rape and murder little girls all over England and the ruling class don't care. They don't give a shit.

An insane, murderous bunch of thugs, known to the police, can murder a British Army soldier in the high street and the ruling class don't care. They don't give a shit.

One can say all the same exact things about the vicious circle of scum ruling classes in Scandanavia, Germany and the rest of the world that have all decided that the rights of murderers and vicious scumbags are greater than yours.

Remember when it was "We the People" and the blessings to ourselves meant us and those like us?

The very first thing the left did was weaponize the law against the citizen. The police and the law really and truly are there to protect the criminals from me and you. Fake news, Fake political parties and Fake justice.

Fakery seems to be on the rise all around the world. Too bad for the world. As I believe I said, a time or two, you better arm yourself. The 'ruling class' in Britain have forbidden the subjects to arm themselves. "Leave it to the police!" Britain heads down the same sewer as the rest of occupied Europe.

I always liked Britain and Scotland and Wales. C'est la guerre. We shall not see their like again. That was the interesting proposition put forth by an author who wondered one day if the Industrial Revolution could have come from any other people or place and his answer was pretty much, no. When you think about it, all that was needful was there for the Egyptians, the Greeks, the Chinese, the Romans.....Only one place and people (plus Dutch) pulled it off.

NOBODY GETS AWAY

I heard this song on my way to drop off my car at the garage this morning. It takes active listening.



I returned this afternoon to pick up my car and the owner was standing there, handed me my keys and I drove off. Like a boss. I used to hate that expression but now I know. There was no paperwork, no charge, no explanations other than, "all fixed."

Enjoy.

PROPER BACK YARD HOME AND GARDEN

We don't garden anymore
It's like a modern anthem
We have better things to do
Than herd plants around the yard.

There's chairs aplenty
More upon the wall
and when they're used
More can be found in the garage.

A Leaf, a bough and thou

HAVE A GLORIOUS MEMORIAL DAY

For the Fallen

Poem by Robert Laurence Binyon (1869-1943), published in The Times newspaper on 21st September 1914.

For I like the words of the first 3 stanzas not...... 
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
They mingle not with their laughing comrades again;
They sit no more at familiar tables of home;
They have no lot in our labour of the day-time;
They sleep beyond England's foam.
But where our desires are and our hopes profound,
Felt as a well-spring that is hidden from sight,
To the innermost heart of their own land they are known
As the stars are known to the Night;
As the stars that shall be bright when we are dust,
Moving in marches upon the heavenly plain,
As the stars that are starry in the time of our darkness,
To the end, to the end, they remain.

WAR LIKE NO OTHER

Almost 3 years ago, Pew Research put together an interesting little graphic that purports to show the increasing radicalism of Congress and dearth of centrists/moderates. If you look at the short article and even the comments to it, there are some interesting insights into the nature of the country's wars over the last 50 years.

Under Nixon, it was readily apparent to all Americans that the United States was at war and a very brutal war in a meaningless place for insufficient reasons to justify the lives and well-being of the men we drafted and sent off to fight that war. Congress consisted in large part of members of the Greatest Generation and they still tended to act like a representative democracy which sought to make reasoned arguments for and against policy, law, and war.

Under Reagan/Bush, the country was once again manifestly locked in a war. It was the endgame of the Reagan determined end of the Cold War and the dissolution of the USSR on terms all parties could find bearable. There was less agreement on policy and law but the mindset on nationalism was basically unchanged since Nixon's time. The Cold War, the missile gap, the ABM and IRBM Treaties and SALT issue weighed heavily on the minds of the legislators. They were people like Sam Nunn.

Under Obama the country was obviously not at war and had no intention of being at war and 100% of the majority party was opposed to the war. We all basically opposed the war as it finally had sunk in that we were pouring American lives and treasure into a sewer from which nothing good could be saved and an area and country which will never recover until the 'strongmen' take power again after more blood has been spilled than anybody can imagine.

We also aren't at war with islam or terrorists and even that war on drugs tapered off as everybody started to look at how stupid that rigged game was playing out. In the end, the only war both parties admitted to was the war on poverty. The voting record shows it. Both parties have radically different notions of how to fight that war.


One of the things I make out of that graph is that the flight of reasonableness began when Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi slammed the door on any legislation that was not purely politically driven to enhance only democrats. In short, there was absolutely no 'upside' for any republican to vote with the majority on increasingly radical and insane notions put to vote by the leaders of the House and Senate and the republicans in the House all knew it. It was the 'elected representatives of the people in the Senate' that figured they could still compromise and get away with some comprise because they don't get reelected every 2 years and their political philosophy has always been, devil take the hindmost. Almost all of the legislation enacted under Obama is destructive to the United States and the record shows it.

I am wracking my brain trying to think what issue, presented to me by Pelosi or Reid, that there possibly could be, which I would vote for. I'm not having much luck finding a single one. Those two and Obama, did to politics in this country, what the Gracchi did to Rome and what Cato did to Carthage.

Collapse of Empire - Thomas Cole



NOW THAT'S A HOOT

I hope it holds true because the only group we despise more than politicians, is journalists.



15 minutes after the image above here are the updated results. Pity the fascists of America who have no 'late reporting' precincts like Philadelphia, Chicago or Detroit.


Neener!

Do you think other real republican candidates will decide that the surest route to victory is to find one of the endless progressive journolist idiots and body-slam him on camera?

ID REQUIREMENT

This was found at Traditional Vibe. It is what truly makes any sane person despise democrats and racemongers. (yes yes, I know, I was redundant)


also required to request a passport
also required to get your mail at the Post Office
also required to enter any federal building
also required to enter any naval or military installation

Well, I'm sure some of you have some other places you know of

UNSEEN SEA OF CORRUPTION

It looks like some of us elected a man to send to Washington to drain the swamp and he is under prepared. Not his fault. We both thought he was dealing with a swamp until he got there and found out it's as deep as an ocean and quite a bit wider.

The information put out on Jerry Pournelle's site in an interesting case in point. It appears that Comey is no different from other democrat apparatchiks and probably even worse than Jamie Gorelick who gives every appearance of being one of the most vile people in our history.

What is it with the swamp denizens in DC that they turn the likes of recently fired DNC Chairwoman Wasserman Schultz into their flag bearers and champions even if they know they are liars and charlatans? And now you don't hear about the lawyers for the DNC case down in Florida telling the court that the DNC is in no way bound by the will of the electorate and the DNC crew of evil men and women can simply 'appoint' their candidate and that's that.

I believe that if I poked around into the backgrounds of every single one of the various appointees in DC, more than 90% of them would prove to be human scum that only float on the swamp known as DC and Wall Street. What can you say about a group that collectively and individually have never been blamed for a single disaster they created whether it be the banking collapse, the housing collapse, the EPA mine disaster? You name the disaster and not ONE SINGLE SCUMBAG in DC was punished or even investigated for wrongdoing. Look at that worthless 'investigation' into Clinton's email thievery and knowingly disclosing classified information on her private server to enemies of the United States. It now appears, finally, that acting on some of that Clinton information, China rounded up all the agents there working for the CIA (US) executed them. How's that for 'no consequences' and 'what does it matter anymore?'

So Trump is no longer laboring under any illusions/delusion about what he's working with. On the gripping hand, they are beginning to get some idea of who they are dealing with and it's looking more like a fair fight, hopefully to the death. One side telling of that is the news filtering out that after thousands of high level leaks from the so-called "intel" community, there has not been one actionable peep out of any of those SCUMBAGS that points to any collusion between Trump's entire campaign staff or him personally conspiring with Russia to interfere in our elections.

Where are all those democrats in congress howling about the interference of the DNC handpicked staff and delegates interfering in the free exercise of democracy by all those chumps that voted for Bernie? The DNC sure as hell conspired against them. Their own hacked records prove it.

And the second thing for Trump; he visited the King of Saudi Arabia and did very well. He visited Jerusalem and did very well. He visited the pope in the Vatican and on this holy ground handed him a first edition copy of the works of some guy named Martin Luther blah blah. How's that for a poke in the eye? Subtle enough that even the clowns on NPR never mentioned it today. That was the bright shining moment of the political day today and they never even noticed.

HEARD FROM AN OLD FRIEND TONIGHT

He sent me this picture of a time that doesn't feel that long ago and yet, was taken almost 9 years ago on a summer day in Old Town three months after I retired from active duty. You can tell from the long hair. I kind of miss the sun swept patios of San Diego and Encinitas where one could sit and watch the people glide by on their way somewhere. We don't really have them here in Metropark Centralis.

A DEMOCRAT DESCRIBES FASCISTS

Henry Wallace was FDR's vice president for four years. He was a hardline communist and FDR wisely decided to ditch the man and his followers when he ran for his fourth term. This is how Wallace describes a fascist.
A fascist is one whose lust for money or power is combined with such an intensity of intolerance toward those of other races, parties, classes, religions, cultures, regions or nations as to make him ruthless in his use of deceit or violence to attain his ends. The supreme god of a fascist, to which his ends are directed, may be money or power; may be a race or a class; may be a military, clique or an economic group; or may be a culture, religion, or a political party.
In my lifetime the fascists took to the streets in giant screaming mobs filled with hatred for ordinary patriotic Americans. They pretty much looked like the people calling themselves Black Lives Matter or Antifa today. They are indescribably intolerant of dissenters who don't agree 100% with their demands and they are ruthless and vicious as only mobs can be.

It's funny to me how they keep trying to raise up various 'fascist straw men' and demand that we understand that they are only rioting, looting, burning cars and businesses because they oppose the evil bastard that is in the White House. Funny how they completely fail to see themselves as the actual enemy of democracy and the American Way even as they rant and rave and attack innocent people they find on the street.

Wallace wanted us to know what fascists looked like if we found one on the loose. Here's his description from 1944:
The perfect type of fascist throughout recent centuries.... (is) willing at all times to engage in any degree of deceit and violence necessary to place his culture and race astride the world..... The hoodlums who have been desecrating churches, cathedrals and synagogues in some of our larger cities are ripe material for fascist leadership. 
It's interesting to me that lies and deceit really only come from the political class and almost entirely from the left.  There's a reason for that. When a political class liar from the right is caught in a lie, and they always are, the jackals in the media hound him or her right out of office and political life.
The dangerous American fascist is the man who wants to do in the United States in an American way what Hitler did in Germany....The American fascist.......method is to poison the channels of public information. With a fascist the problem is never how best to present the truth to the public but how best to use the news to deceive the public into giving the fascist and his group more money or more power.
The media is the current perch for the arch-fascists in America. They have married into the political and ruling class of the left and they preach the gospel according to the most bigoted, close-minded and illiberal people of the 20th century. You simply have to watch the paroxysm of rage shared by the media and liberal elite every minute of the day on television, cable, internet, New York Times, Washington Post and all the other liberal bastions to see how they are playing by the rules Wallace laid out for them over 70 years ago.
American fascism will not be really dangerous until there is a purposeful coalition among the cartelists, the deliberate poisoners of public information, and those who stand for the K.K.K.  (explicit racist) type of demagoguery.
Well we've got that in spades now, don't we.
Still another danger is represented by those who, paying lip service to democracy and the common welfare, in their insatiable greed for money and the power which money gives, do not hesitate surreptitiously to evade the laws designed to safeguard the public from monopolistic extortion.
Isn't that just precisely what we have now? The fascists are Congress and the entire political class? Ever wonder why all those bankers didn't go to jail for life after the housing bubble collapsed?
 The symptoms of fascist thinking are colored by environment and adapted to immediate circumstances. But always and everywhere they can be identified by their appeal to prejudice and by the desire to play upon the fears and vanities of different groups in order to gain power.
Just which group out there is now exploiting race and appealing to prejudice on a daily basis?
The American fascists are most easily recognized by their deliberate perversion of truth and fact. Their newspapers and propaganda carefully cultivate every fissure of disunity, every crack in the common front against fascism. They use every opportunity to impugn democracy..... 
....They claim to be super-patriots, but they would destroy every liberty guaranteed by the Constitution. They demand free enterprise, but are the spokesmen for monopoly and vested interest. Their final objective toward which all their deceit is directed is to capture political power so that, using the power of the state and the power of the market simultaneously, they may keep the common man in eternal subjection.
In large part they are doing this very well at one level and roiling the base of all sides at the other level. They bring home every day the adage that you can fool some of the people all of the time and all of the people some of the time.

I would like to see more men and women of good will run for office but the media and the various sharpshooters in both parties make a point of picking them off early as too callow, too dimwitted, too trusting, too ignorant, etc. Look how they portrayed a neurosurgeon who ran for president. Look at how they disparage Rand Paul who is, in real life, an eye surgeon.

It would be nice if the people currently agitating for removal of a duly elected president turned their attention to the way their sort of stupidity plays out when the ones who preach tyranny and wage war against civil society win the contest. They don't have to look any further than Detroit, Puerto Rico, Cuba or Venezuela to see what happens to any society when the real fascists win power.

STUPID IS THEIR DENSITY

From our good friends at the Wall Street Journal.
The Justice Department moved to find a temporary successor for fired FBI Director James Comey, as Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his top deputy on Wednesday interviewed five candidates amid continuing fallout over the controversial dismissal. 
Some agents at the Federal Bureau of Investigation said in interviews that they were shocked and demoralized, with several saying that while they didn’t agree with all of Mr. Comey’s actions, they respected him and were startled by his firing on Tuesday.
You have to wonder what kind of stupid FBI "investigator" could be shocked, demoralized and startled by Comey finally getting fired. Millions of people have been demanding his head since July of last year. I wonder if these idiots are the ones currently investigating Snowden or just the morons investigating Flynn.

I mean, if this was about me and I worked for the FBI, I'd be truly embarrassed to be so portrayed.

CONSPIRACY AND IMMUNITY

Could the FBI reopen the investigation into Clinton's use of a private email server and account to get around goverment regulations. Yes. It won't help it though that Comey gave all of the people involved immunity and conspired with all of them to destroy all the evidence as part of HIS investigation.

Way to go Comey!

THE FINAL TRIUMPH OF HATE

In a move few condemned, some of the last monuments raised to the memory of slaveholders have been removed and efforts are underway to destroy the handful that still remain. Wreckers arrive tomorrow to demolish that monument raised to slaveholder George Washington and his house is scheduled for a visit next week from the neighborhood 'firemen'. It is expected that their flamethrowers will make short work of that bastion of slavery still poised atop a bank on a bend of the Potomac River.


The Jefferson Memorial is being painted black, all icons and phrases of the hated slave owner Thomas Jefferson will be removed or sand-blasted and another bust of Martin Luther King will be installed in a gesture that will finally bury the hatchett of race hatred in Amerika! Slaveowner Jefferson's house at Monticello is also scheduled for a visit by the local 'firemen' and they anticipate the usual complete and total destruction of the house and all of its contents.



Local Fireman, "Chip" DeHay said, "It won't be no different than what we did to Mrs. Washington's granddaughter, Mary Anna Custis Lee's house up at Arlington yesterday and we expect the fires will probably burn themselves out in a day or two."


Readers will recall the quick work of the Alexandria Fire Men who successfully torched the hated monument to slavery that was Arlington House, former home of slave owner Robert E. Lee.

Like minded citizens were keen to point out that Washington DC was itself a monument named after the long dead slave owner, George Washington, and rushed to implement the complete fiery destruction of the city and everything within that city's limits. Radicals wearing native american costumes were observed on the mob's fringe, passing explosives and maps of various white looking buildings with domed roofs to the more active and fiery members of the mob.

Noted Amerikkan speechifyer Rodney King, was quoted saying, "And uh, I mean please, we can, we can get along here. We all can get along - we just gotta, we gotta. I mean, we're all stuck here for a while, let's, you know let's try to work it out, let's try to beat it, you know, let's try to work it out."

Supporters ignored his pleas and rushed to find more gasoline and additional empty bottles and rags.

FRIVOLITY AT LAST

Ripped off from Rodger The Real King of France


OPENING THE MIND

Every few months I click on a link to a place I want more information from and it directs me to facebook. I have an account there but I almost never go there. It was opened as a window to a world I was otherwise uninterested in and too busy to bother with and, as I said, I hardly ever go there.

I went there tonight and found that in my absence some 'friend' had taken over whatever that page is that records all the thoughts of your hundreds of friends and lays them out in chronological order for your perusal. What I had before my eyes was a solid stream, screen after screeen after screen of screeds of hate for anybody to the right of Jimmy Carter. This 'friend' went on and on and on and every fleck of spittle was visible in her disdain and hatred for the stupid dolts and morons that make up the sizeable minority of the US population that voted for Trump.

I already have one fb friend who has the same inclination to share the passionate beliefs of people who dress in black, riot, attempt to kill free speech and think inflicting bodily harm is fair provided it is only inflicted on wrong-thinking, red-necked sorts. He has a Ph.D in Ocean Engineering and a distinguished career with patents to his name and he was at Pearl Harbor the day the Imperial Japanese Navy showed up to express their interest in fighting the United States. He may be a bit more gaga then I remember him from the last time we met in a pub several years ago. At any rate, one loon is enough.

I went to the handy link that lets one unfollow the feed from someone tagged as a friend and pulled the trigger. As I did so, I thought about this place and wondered if it too was beginning to bear some of the hallmarks of someone who is a crazy mad frothing-at-the-mouth lunatic and I decided, not yet. I still prefer to find the humor in just about any situation. It's usually there, somewhere.

TRUMP FINALLY FIRES COMEY

Good riddance to the most pathetic and venal man to ever hold the office of Director of FBI. He will not be missed for he did literally nothing about the crimes and misdemeanors that spewed out of the Obama administration for more than 8 years. I can't believe it took Trump this long to fire the guy for being worthless, ineffective and useless.

He became a tool of the democrats and was launched on one stupid witch hunt after another by them into putative links to Russia and Trump and witchcraft, and racism and bullying and meanness and other stupid stuff that kept the FBI from playing any meaningful role in the war on terror.

Mr. Trump insisted he’s not part of the probe, but said he felt compelled to fire the director anyway.
“While I greatly appreciate you informing me, on three separate occasions, that I am not under investigation, I nevertheless concur with the judgment of the Department of Justice that you are not able to effectively lead the Bureau,” Mr. Trump said in a letter to Mr. Comey, posted on media websites. 
The president said a new director is needed who “restores public trust and confidence” in the agency.
Comey damaged FBI credibility much the way Holder and Lynch destroyed the reputation of the Department of Justice. What an enviable track record for Obama's choices to lead the Bureau and DOJ.

THIS WAS JUST FUNNY

DIDN'T SEE THIS COMING DID YOU?

The Washington Post is notorious for its objective journalism. It was quite a pleasure to read their own words as they describe government as practiced by their very best friends and neighbors.


It's funny how they never try to use this particular lens to investigate the governments of places like Puerto Rico, Chicago, San Diego, Washington DC,  Venezuela, or other places that are infamous for applying punishments and extortion to tax their subjects.

CONTRASTS FROM OUR VISIT TO THE WEST

Some people appear larger-than-life in hindsight. I can't help but believe that these men were found larger-than-life while still alive and they certainly remain larger than life today.

Faces at Mount Rushmore
Contrast them and the rather pathetic lineup we have 'enjoyed' lately in the race to lead our country. Where the men above appeared to strive to lead us to the top, the latest political dross all seemed determined to lead us in a race to the bottom. Can you imagine people voting for a communist for President of the United States? What does that say about the state of education in America? How stupid does one have to be to prefer tyranny to a constitutional republic?

THE TRINITY AS HEARD ON PRAGER

While I was out the other day I heard some words on the radio over the roar of my 6 cylinder engine sans muffler. They went something like this:
You know what the trinity of Canada is? I’ll tell it to you in the way I learned it. I had Charles Krauthammer on the show one day.  And I don’t ask him him political questions when he is on. Because everyone knows him from Fox and from his column, how he thinks. So, I like to ask philosophical questions.  He’s a thoughtful man. 
So I said, “Charles, you grew up in Canada. What’s the biggest difference between Canada and the United States?” And to his great credit he had an immediate and terrific answer.  He said, “Well the American Declaration of Independence enshrines life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The motto of Canada is peace, order, and good government.” 
The big difference.  That’s why you go to Canada. That’s what you feel. Peace, order, good government, and nothing is happening. It’s not an exciting place like America’s an exciting place. By the way, it may be great and better to live in an unexciting place. It’s a curse to live in interesting times. It may not be a blessing but it is different. 
No one had our American Trinity. And they are all necessary. The Left has successfully labeled those of us who believe in the “In God We Trust” part as fanatics, as outside of mainstream American history.
It was an interesting tidbit for a Monday drive and then the light turned green and the radio was once again drowned out by the mighty roar as I opened the throttle and roared down the streets of Metroparkcentralis.

A VISIT TO METROPARK CENTRALIS DMV

To be honest, in Ohio they refer to the people that register cars and license drivers as a bureau, so strictly speaking, it is not a visit to the DMV. That said, the fine folks at my local branch of the DMV had themselves an illuminated sign in their place of business that every person standing in line had the opportunity to read several dozen times while waiting for a turn to talk with a real person of the DMV.

I was there for a simple $7.00 transaction that I had deliberately engineered and was happy to spend 3 whole minutes waiting in line for my turn. It came soon enough and the place was nothing like the disaster scene that was my last visit to the DMV in Hillcrest, San Diego, CA 6 years ago when there were 300 people waiting inside and another 800 waiting in the parking lot outside for their turn at being 'atttended to' by employees of the DMV. This was way better.

As to the sign I read there today, this is what it said: In Ohio,

It is illegal to fish for whales on Sunday

I don't know if this is so but it is repeated at this site. There are some other strange Ohio laws it seems.

It is illegal for more than five women to live in a house.

Women are prohibited from wearing patent leather shoes in public.

Participating or conducting a duel is prohibited.

I walked out of the DMV today, five minutes after I entered, a happy man. How often does that happen?

HAPPY VICTORY IN EUROPE DAY

It doesn't seem much like a victory these days as Europe is slowly being overwhelmed by a tide of non-Europeans intent on living as their ancestors have lived and bringing with them all the problems that destroyed the lands they came from. I'm going to miss it when it's gone.

ELECTION DAY IN FRANCE

Today the people in France and it's citizens abroad vote for a new president. They seem to have a choice between a rabid socialist who hates immigrants and a rabid socialist drone who thinks Stalin didn't go far enough with his 'command economy' and five year plans. And here I thought we had a difficult choice for president. Still, this last vote was somewhat easier than the previous two. I couldn't detect a particle of difference between Romney and Schumer and McCain is simply a power addicted zombie from Hell with control issues and poor impulse control and, not to mention, he's as crazy socialist as Schumer and Pelosi combined.

I still don't understand why, with the whole world flooded with guns, terrorists, crazy murdering arabs and vicious social justice warriors, so few politicians have been assassinated. I'm also surprised they haven't taken out the judges they find objectionable. OTOH, I think it's just a matter of time since the opportunity is ever present and remote control armed drones are now in play all over the world.

If pathetic crazies like these losers can get within spitting distance of a president, it's hard to believe that the really hardcore fanatics will fail. Still, I'm going to remain optimistic.

TIME AND TIME AGAIN

The Venezuelans had many a chance to avoid the ugly state of affairs they created by letting Chavez out of jail, by  later electing him President and by releasing him again after the army coup of April, 2002, and they failed to see where the road to socialism always leads and so they have quietly and quickly moved from being the wealthiest country in South America to being the most impoverished country, where 74% of the population have shed an average of 20 pounds over the last twelve months, because starvation is like that and leaves a country greatly diminished.

In the end, they bowed to yet another dictator who believed that power came from the people when they were backed by the guns of merciless killers armed by the State and we see it again now with the pathetic Chavez replacement, President Maduro, who has decided to arm 400,000 new socialist men with weaponry from the State's arsenals to be used to ensure the People's Democracy is not overthrown, even if, and I want to stress this, even if every single man, woman and child starves to death in a country sitting atop so much oil it was once a premier member of OPEC and tried to get American presidents, corporations and people to dance to their tune of oil embargo and energy shortages.

Americans don't really see how this can happen here and to some extent they have a point. That is not to say that the lowest common human denominator won't agitate for a 'good socialist' to 'share the wealth' and overthrow the Constitution because it is just another incomprehensible old piece of trash written by a bunch of white men who probably owned slaves or wished they did. They're the kind that staff all those 'Get the Vote Out' shams created and funded by Soros and the other magnates who think they can pull off in America what they pulled off in all of Latin America, most of Europe and in the charnel house that poses as the United Nations. They want a socialist to run things here but I'll be damned if I know why.

One of the things they don't reckon on is that this is still a pretty rugged country and we all know what happens to countries and people that elect socialists to rule over them or who get them jammed down their throats by an occupying power like the Soviet Union.

The first sign in the skies will be after somebody uses a drone in America to kill or attempt to kill someone rich, socialist, evil, greedy or incompetent, by dropping explosives ala ISIS. Right then a bill will be passed and signed into law and we'll find that in America, only the Police and Federal Agencies will be allowed to own, operate or fly any kind of drone.

FROM THE NORTH COAST TO THE WEST COAST


TOO FUNNY

Well, it seems there is a way to bring peace and order with threats to the campus of University of California-Berkeley. It turns out the officials of order are now rallying around the first amendment and beginning to live with the idea that public speaking is permissible in our society and that the little nazis that dress up in black and masks and hold public beat downs of people they hate; like nazis hated Jews, can and will be countered, not just by the good people who hate California nazis, but also by the forces of order who can, it seems, when motivated, come out in overwhelming numbers to 'keep the peace'.

BLUE TRUCKS MATTER

The jackass who parked this truck in front of the auto parts store yesterday clearly thought that Blue Trucks Matter and he didn't hesitate to show his dedication to the worthy cause by taking up 4 parking spots in front of the building he came roaring out of just as I was snapping this picture as he delivered his Parthian shots over his shoulder to the workers inside whom he castigated and rounded on in the most hateful matter that only a BLM sympathizer could appreciate as he screamed abuse at them and headed for his blue symbol of BTM.

BTM JACKASS
I've seldom seen such privilege and disdain for ordinary mortals as what is expressed by the BLM crowd and this guy was pretty typical for the type I BLM activist.

I was heartbroken to see them held in such low esteem. I may even have shed a tear...

MEET THE ACTUAL FASCISTS

I started seeing references to /pol /last night and today I found this clip on Ninety Miles From Tyranny. It's worth your time to see who is actually out there out-thugging the actual Nazis, who are all mostly dead or very very old. I liked the reference there near the end where the narrator says, 'you cannot stop the power of weaponized autism.' Not the kind of thing one sees everyday as praise.



The thugs out there waging war in the name of some failed god like socialism or whatever, need to be fired from any and all teaching positions and their interactions with the young should be limited to times when radicals are actually being pilloried in stocks on public display and then children and teenagers should be encouraged to throw rotten fruit and rocks at them.

BOMBER GAP

I always thought the B29 was an enormous plane but the only one I ever saw was the Enola Gay. This picture, from strategy page, shows how incredibly small they were compared to the follow-on long range Air Force bomber.
Convair XB-36 parked beside Boeing B-29-55-BA (S/N 44-84027) for size comparison. (U.S. Air Force photo)
Amazing.

It was a beautiful day. Just about perfect.

MADNESS RUNS AMOK IN IMPERIAL BEACH

A review board of officers sitting in Imperial Beach, my old headquarters, has voted to retain the disgraceful services of LT Narker. You may recall this officer. He surrendered two fully armed and crewed USN patrol boats to a half dozen pathetically armed dinghies off the coast of Farsi Island. The Commander, Expeditionary Combat Command, stripped him of his warfare qualifications and kicked him out of the navy, but this flaming idiot LT decided, at last, to fight back! He wants to stay in the navy.

At this point, it shouldn't really matter. At six years of commissioned service he doesn't have a warfare qualification and that alone is grounds for dismissal. He surrendered two minor warships to an inferior enemy and then failed to live up to the Code of Conduct while in captivity. Every single thing he did or didn't do had a direct bearing on his capture and subsequent events. He has proven over and over again that he is unfit to be a naval officer.

However, the Board of his peers and superiors at Coastal Riverine Group ONE somehow decided to retain this loser in the naval service. I wouldn't really be so angry about one screwed up officer staying in but this is too much. If his subsequent career is anything like that idiot Dorsey that shot down a USAF Phantom, permanently crippling two Air Force officers who were forced to bail out as their plane was engulfed by fire and breaking up around them could transfer to a noncombat position in the navy and then, years later, be selected for promotion to admiral despite a monumental lapse of judgment, then Narker still stands a chance at retiring as a flag officer.

That is simply unacceptable. This idiot is almost certainly going into Intelligence where his expertise will no doubt be fawned over by the other GURL community, whatever they call themselves today.

THE FASCISTS ARE WINNING

I'm sorry as hell to say that the fascists are winning over the forces of order and democracy. We can have a little hell raising at our political intersections without overt murder on the table as one of the anticipated outcomes of inviting a speaker to an American campus. Well, once upon a time, not so much these days. The fascists running the UC Berkeley and their hierarchy have declared Berkeley to be an open war zone where any speaker invited by the Young Republicans will suffer death or dismemberment at the hand of the vicious fascist scumbags calling themselves antifa. You knew they'd be fascists of one stripe though, didn't you?

Berkeley declared Ann Coulter persona non grata and told her today that they were refusing to give her permission to speak at the University of California Berkeley next week.
After the Charles Murray fiasco at Middlebury, I wrote that “We’re getting closer to the inevitable moment when someone is literally murdered on an American campus because a right-winger tried to speak.” 
Berkeley’s administrators agree. In canceling Coulter’s speech next week, they made no bones about the fact that there are now so many fascist “anti-fascist” animals running around campus that Coulter herself or someone in the audience literally might not leave it alive. And after what happened when Milo Yiannopoulos tried to speak in February, that’s a perfectly reasonable fear. You call the local police in Berkeley if you want to arrange “symbolic arrests” at the sit-in you’re organizing for your pet cause, not to stop rampaging leftists bent on smashing store windows and skulls because a thought criminal has arrived in town. 
She says she’s going to show up anyway. Who’ll secure the speech to make sure that the “heckler’s veto” doesn’t silence her? The mayor? Jerry Brown? Trump?
In return for agreeing to all of the demands made by UC Berkeley, Coulter posed two of her own demands to them. They sound pretty reasonable to me although I think she should have specified the Berkeley Commissar of Police vice the Oakland Chief of Police since UCB is entirely within the city limits of the People's Republic of Berkeley and not Oakland. She requested:
1) That the University of California chancellor request that the Oakland chief of police refrain from telling his men to stand down and ignore law-breaking by rioters attempting to shut down conservative speakers, as he has done in the past; and 
2) That UC-Berkeley announce in advance that any students engaging in violence, mayhem or heckling to prevent an invited speaker from speaking would be expelled.
UC Berkeley didn't merely reject her requests, they unilaterally stepped in and told her she was not welcome and to stay away. So far, she says she plans to be there and I suspect she will follow through on her refusal to cave to the fascists and black bloc.

In America we've reached the point where invited public speakers have the expectation that the cops won't stand up to the violent gangs that squelch any and all public appearances by anybody they hate and disagree with. Since that includes just about anybody who believes that the Constitution is the basis for all law in this country, that means anybody to the right of Joe Biden.

We will see EOD sweeps of public venues before centrists, moderates and American conservatives are expected to speak, just as they do for the President. It's a sad state of affairs and yet it is one that grew out of the victory of the campus radicals back in the 1970's, when they went on to take over almost all public instruction in American public schools and almost every Academy of Arts and Sciences at America's public and private universities.
For they sow the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind. The standing grain has no heads; it shall yield no flour; if it were to yield, foreigners would devour it.

CRUISE MISSILES

Don't you know if we currently had a Democrat majority in a chamber of Congress there would be a vociferous and damning investigation trying to prove that President Trump gave American cruise missiles to Syria. I mean, can't you just see Congresswoman Maxine Waters or Senator Diane Feinstein in full harangue demanding answers from the admirals and Pentagon officials?

IT'S NO LONGER A KNIFE FIGHT

I updated my post about the Berkeley battle below but it's worth repeating and making a few other points. If you read the police report about the attack on First Amendment marchers by the fascists calling themselves antifa and black bloc, you will see that several of them were taken into custody by the cops, who were otherwise useless, for assault, battery, and carrying switchblades.

The people take note. When one side starts to bring knives to a street fight the intent is obvious. They mean to kill and maim and they thought they could get away with it. In a way it's an indicator that the violence level will ratchet up and that both sides will, in future combats, have along people carrying guns, much the way that one riot started so many decades ago just a little south of here at Kent State. It took just one lunatic (probably an FBI mole in the Peace Movement) who fired a gun he carried to the riot and the hapless National Guard then opened fire on the demonstrators.

That is what the next major tussle will probably bring and it will be done by a boy who thinks he can get away with it. I can see the Fascist Party hacks (young men in their 20's) telling a young teenager to shoot the weapon they give him because, as they will tell him, as an underage youth he cannot be charged as an adult and he can get away with a juvie sentence.

If you were of a  particular persuasion and the kind of sociopath these guys prove to be, the lives of your fellow demonstrators don't matter any more than the lives of your enemy and you won't be deterred from shooting a few in the name of the movement, whatever it is. It's like all those 'wildfires' that seem to have 'spontaneously' lit themselves throughout the west and the south after 9/11. They say fire needs oxygen, fuel, and heat. In a lot of cases all it needs is hate.

Police are still working to identify more suspects. They said they will comb through social media video footage.
