I'LL TELL YOU WHAT IS HARD

There is, effectively, no way to get powder burns out of ones face after shooting a black powder muzzle loader cavalry pistol out the window of a moving car. So. Don't do it. They will leave a mark.

PLAYING THE COLORED CARD

I somehow failed to have a single colored teacher. One can color that any way one wants. I went to school in Texas, New Jersey, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Kansas, Alabama, and Rhode Island. I entirely failed to note this odd fact until now. Who knew? Why is it hard to pass an english test if one is what is laughingly known as an 'educator'.

MY BOOKSTORES

They aren't evil, they're just stocked that way.

B&N is the only store of new books in the tri-state area. They eliminated every single "new" book shelf and opted to stick the new in with the old so you could look at ALL of the books you don't want to buy on your search for the new books you were interested in. Clever marketing scam. It lost me as a customer. I prefer Amazon where I can find what I'm looking for without the hunt and peck of the seagull browser.

Loganberry is far and away the nearest bookstore. I walk there and across the street for a haircut in the same little shop frequented by the author of Calvin and Hobbes. It's my neighborhood. It's home to my local and it still strikes the chord that resonates with me....for maybe just a little while. It is, after all, Cleveland, and what cities can destroy by neglect they can devastate by attention. Harriet and Strong-in-the-Arm are good people. Sadly, I visit shops like this in search of Gallery, Gallico, Woodhouse, Landsborrough, et al. Making things harder than they have to be was the motto a friend of mine came up with to describe Group ONE a long time ago. Heather had a way with words. We sent the Chop that replaced her to the brig.

Needs coffee dammit!


A NOTE TO THE GOP

Kill Obamacare, don't 'fix' it. If you are a rethuglican lawmaker and you vote for Ryan's bill to 'amend' Obamacare you need to be turfed out in the next election as just too stupid to survive. You were not elected to 'fix' it. You were elected to get the damned government out of health insurance and health care.



How hard is that to understand?

A BITTER PEACE

Terrifying.


NASA LIVE STREAM

This is pretty cool.

SO I WENT LOOKING FOR A BOOK

I make it to Loganberry Books about once a month. They made an appearance at Ace of Spades.


One hopes they also reversed those written by women using a male nom de plume.

SLIME OF THE TIMES

They really think we are all idiots. Now they have been hoisted on the pitchfork of truth. Again.

WE NEED AN ETHICAL MAN AT FBI

Comey has to go. This man is so ethically challenged he could find no wrongdoing in Hillary Clinton. He said so and he moved the election to say so in the face of all the evidence that she had violated every single ethical law of government and all of the ones on the books about espionage. He needs to be replaced by somebody almost like Joe the Plumber. The comfortable shoes, chic suit and tie era of FBI needs to go into the dustbin of history.

We need some lawmen running the FBI.

Joe's not busy right now....

DEMOCRATS DEMAND INVESTIGATION OF RUSSIAN HACKING

Russia releases 100% of Hillary Clinton's emails. All of them. With the classification markings still in place before she and her staff ran them through a filter to remove all classification markings and () paragraph classification markings.

Won't those congressional idiots feel like idiots after that?

It's nothing the NSA couldn't have done years ago but of course the NSA doesn't ever spy on Americans.

A NAVEL TEMPTATION

I wonder if the hordes of media elite and Hollywood actors and actresses and producers and directors would like it if one and all were free to simply use their social security numbers and claim their social security benefits. I don't see why someone releasing those names and numbers to the illegal alien community and inviting them to simply assert their national right to steal other people's identities and share the fruits of their labors would cause any problems in New York, Hollywood or Washington DC.

More on Obama's obviously fake social security number. He never lived in Connecticut and that is that. There really is no profound and acceptable answer to why Obama's SSN starts with the Connecticut prefix '042'. OTOH, there is me and my siblings. All of us have consecutive SSNs from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and none of us were born in that Commonwealth. We got parked there for a time during the War in Vietnam and one of the things my father finished that he had begun when we lived in New York and while were in living in Oklahoma was getting us all documented and claimable for tax purposes. I don't believe there were any tax breaks for our soldiers who fought in Vietnam during any tax year back then, unlike our later breaks for the Gulf Wars.

I think it would be meet if every illegal used Barbra's SSN and Sean Penn's. It's not like they deserve social security and as self absorbed as they are, they'll never even notice...or care if they did.*

Whenever I think of people digging down to the truth and getting to the nitty gritty of reality I am struck by all the things that NOBODY knows about Obama and now.....Now his nemesis, the man who he is goading every single day with his attacks, controls every single agency that maintained utter stillness and quiet while Obama adorned the throne of state. I wonder how that feels? I don't honestly think the lightworker cares what comes up because the Lena Dunhams of his party don't/won't care or understand. Barring that, they just deny it as they deny everything that is real but fails to make it through their laser† like focus on truth.

*It would make it so much easier for the rest of us to find them, round them up and in the darkness deport them. There, I kind of sound like the One Ring
† Lasers are interesting. They admit only collimated light. All the rest of the light is ignored and unseen. Democrats are very focused these days. Collimated.

A NEW IDEA

Wikileaks struck back today and it looks like their target was once again the Central Intelligence Agency of the United States. If you wonder why Trump seems to be getting repeatedly shafted by the 'so-called-intelligence-community' Wikileaks might be a revelation. The CIA is rapidly assuming the position and intent of such fell agencies as the KGB and Pakistan's InterServices Intelligence. Regrettably, they both have a long history of engineering coup d'etats.

If I was Trump I would be very leery of flying around in Air Force One. We have very strong suspicions about how various leaders 'fell' from grace with the CIA and ISI.

A NEW IDEA WOULD KILL THEM

From infogalactic

Lapérouse sailed during 10–30 August all the way south to the Spanish Las Californias Province, present-day California. He reportedly observed the only historical eruption of Mount Shasta on 7 September 1786, although this account is disputed.[23] He stopped at the Presidio of San Francisco long enough to create an outline map of the Bay Area, "Plan du Port du St. Francois," which was reproduced as Map 33 in L. Aubert's 1797 "Atlas du Voyage de la Perouse." He arrived in Monterey Bay and at the Presidio of Monterey on 14 September 1786.[24] He examined the Spanish settlements, ranchos, and missions. He made critical notes on the missionary treatment of the California indigenous peoples with the Indian Reductions at the Franciscan run missions. France and Spain were on friendly terms at this time. Lapérouse was the first non-Spanish visitor to California since Drake in 1579, and the first to come to California after the founding of Spanish missions and presidios.

If one just stops there and thinks about that for a moment, it is almost unbelievable. No non-Spanish visitor in California for over 200 years. That's a long time for something to remain static and unchanging which is pretty much what happened in California. What's really interesting is how 200 years of Spanish work vanished almost overnight once Califorinia was thrown open to the American adventurers and gold pioneers.

As with Texas, many of the missions still remain and the Presidios mentioned in the first paragraph are still there but nothing of their nature remains at all. It was washed away by the culture that completely replaced it. You can see troubling echos of this now as the cultures we remember from our youth are being eroded and swept away by 'immigrants' that are realigning the foundations of the socieities they have overwhelmed. Western Europe is not the same as it was when I was younger and traveled there and much of the face of the American West is gone as well.

As with the mission life of California and Texas, one cannot say it was better but it was what one knew and it is saddening to see if go without so much as a feeble struggle.

I was led away the other night by infogalactic. Somehow I found myself looking at the First Fleet which led to Lapérouse which led to another article following the one that discussed his interaction with the First Fleet and his ultimate loss on one of the Pacific islands along with his ships and men as they sailed from Australia to New Caledonia. This, in turn led to the Bounty and so on.

The size of the world was driven home again as I read of the epic voyages of those times. The First Fleet set out for Australia and it took them 251 days to reach their destination. Things have been speeding up for every generation since then. Looking back it is easy to see the Agents of Change. It's in the moment that they are difficult to spot.

TRUMP AND RETRUMP

Read at the American Thinker. It's a devastating verbal broadside. I caught the media acting all startled and outraged at the idea that the American president who kills Americans abroad with American drone strikes would ever even contemplate the idea of using national intelligence agencies to spy on his most hated enemy. It was funny for about .002 seconds and then I turned the channel.




These criminals need to go to jail and be fined millions of dollars. If they could find Libby guilty of a non-crime, they can certainly find the guilty people committing actual crimes who have been doing this sort of thing for the last few months.

What is hard to believe is how many people credit Obama as somehow being capable of telling the truth about anything. The media are deeply broken and should be tossed out with the rest of the garbage left over from the Obama administration. There's a man and a group of people that have just about zero credibility for making accusations about anybody else climbing into bed with Putin. That man's name is Obama and it's his crowd that favored rapprochment with the Soviets at any cost even if they did it in the most stupid, ham-handed, clumsy and ridiculous manner possible.

Who advised Obama and his crew that Trump was a patsy like Romney or McCain that could be pushed around, belittled and ridden out of town on a rail after a brief thuggish attack by the usual crew of liars and scumbags? That person is feeling the heat or Hillary had him chained to a chrysler and dumped in some river in New York.

PLAYING PITTSBURGH

After a bit of worship with good microbrews and good food at




one can step out and see the town and what's happening at the Strip and Carnegie Museum.

TINY DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH

I googled the blog to see if it was being pitched properly and the results are in. You can imagine my surprise when I found this today:



I know. Unbelievable. Still, if anybody wants to make me an offer I'll sell it for just $3,000,000.00 Srsly, ranked 589 out of 30,000,000 domains....

I gotta hand it to the French and Japanese engines that have been driving my rankings to unbelievable heights over the last few months.

IMPORTANT SAFETY TIP FOR TRUMP

It is wise to take note of the lessons learned by those who come before us. To that end, there exists a list of sage advice for Evil Overlords. I'm sure it has recently been tacked to the wall in the Oval Office. Some of the more pertinent rules for our shiny new era include:

1. My Legions of Terror will have helmets with clear plexiglass visors, not face-concealing ones.

2. My ventilation ducts will be too small to crawl through.

3. My noble half-brother whose throne I usurped will be killed, not kept anonymously imprisoned in a forgotten cell of my dungeon.

4. Shooting is not too good for my enemies.

5. The artifact which is the source of my power will not be kept on the Mountain of Despair beyond the River of Fire guarded by the Dragons of Eternity. It will be in my safe-deposit box. The same applies to the object which is my one weakness.

6. I will not gloat over my enemies' predicament before killing them.

7. When I've captured my adversary and he says, "Look, before you kill me, will you at least tell me what this is all about?" I'll say, "No." and shoot him. No, on second thought I'll shoot him then say "No."

8. After I kidnap the beautiful princess, we will be married immediately in a quiet civil ceremony, not a lavish spectacle in three weeks' time during which the final phase of my plan will be carried out.

9. I will not include a self-destruct mechanism unless absolutely necessary. If it is necessary, it will not be a large red button labelled "Danger: Do Not Push". The big red button marked "Do Not Push" will instead trigger a spray of bullets on anyone stupid enough to disregard it. Similarly, the ON/OFF switch will not clearly be labelled as such.

10. I will not interrogate my enemies in the inner sanctum -- a small hotel well outside my borders will work just as well.

11. I will be secure in my superiority. Therefore, I will feel no need to prove it by leaving clues in the form of riddles or leaving my weaker enemies alive to show they pose no threat.

12. One of my advisors will be an average five-year-old child. Any flaws in my plan that he is able to spot will be corrected before implementation.

13. All slain enemies will be cremated, or at least have several rounds of ammunition emptied into them, not left for dead at the bottom of the cliff. The announcement of their deaths, as well as any accompanying celebration, will be deferred until after the aforementioned disposal.

14. The hero is not entitled to a last kiss, a last cigarette, or any other form of last request.

15. I will never employ any device with a digital countdown. If I find that such a device is absolutely unavoidable, I will set it to activate when the counter reaches 117 and the hero is just putting his plan into operation.

16. I will never utter the sentence "But before I kill you, there's just one thing I want to know."

17. When I employ people as advisors, I will occasionally listen to their advice.

18. I will not have a son. Although his laughably under-planned attempt to usurp power would easily fail, it would provide a fatal distraction at a crucial point in time.

19. I will not have a daughter. She would be as beautiful as she was evil, but one look at the hero's rugged countenance and she'd betray her own father.

20. Despite its proven stress-relieving effect, I will not indulge in maniacal laughter. When so occupied, it's too easy to miss unexpected developments that a more attentive individual could adjust to accordingly.

21. I will hire a talented fashion designer to create original uniforms for my Legions of Terror, as opposed to some cheap knock-offs that make them look like Nazi stormtroopers, Roman footsoldiers, or savage Mongol hordes. All were eventually defeated and I want my troops to have a more positive mind-set.

There are plenty more good tips for evil overlords. You should read the entire list.

Oddly enough, there is also a complete companion list of no nos for evil henchmen of evil overlords. Unfortunately, Obama's people all took their autographed copies with them when they left the White House. They are shiny and new, pristine and have never been read......except by Russian, Chinese, Slovenian, Moldavan, Ugandan, Kenyan, Nigerian, Venezuelan and other hackers who made off with the complete list when rummaging through Hillary's email files and Podesta's files and the DNC's files.

THE NEW IRS TURNS ITS GAZE TO YOU OBAMA

I don't doubt the truth of this article from the UK press. It looks like Obama is assembling all the tools and henchmen any revolutionary needs to wage overt war against the legally elected government of a democracy. It will be fun to see him and Jarret audited every year from now on by impeccably honest IRS agents and it will be hilarious to see what documents "turn up" from the archives of the State Department and the State of Hawaii inre Mr. Obama's foreign travels, his peculiar social security number from a state he never lived or worked in and other little discrepancies that have come to light over the last 10 years. It will be illuminating because we all know that Mr. Trump is not a man who suffers petty insults and personal attacks by turning the other cheek.

It's not too late for any or all of these scumbags to go to jail. I'm looking forward to it because I know something they don't know.

Trump will have them destroyed by the organs of State that they weaponized and while everyone will know that he did it, they won't be able to prove a thing or trace anything back to him and decades of lying to the people has ensured that only a handful of rabid believers actually believe anything reported by the journolistas of the media. The democrats "friends" have outed themselves as enemies of the truth as thoroughly as Fidel Castro, Kim il Sung, Mao, or Joe Stalin.

ANYTHING IS A WEAPON

Some of the softer minded people running amok on the streets of our major centers of poverty, crime and despair, are unmindful of the fact that anything at all can be weaponized. They react with shock and horror when they learn that the really smart people have been playing them as dupes and pawns since the beginning of time. They used to be called fellow travelers and useful idiots but both sides weaponized the media long before the dupes woke up and started heading down the path leading to enlightenment. Most of them are still lost in the wilderness since the road to sanity is, for some, a long and arduous road.

I got a kick out of this article at zerohedge. It describes the declassified papers generated by the father of lies itself (CIA) that used the American press and some of its more feeble minded reporters as dupes in the propaganda war against the USSR and communism. It was only last night that I was looking at the backgrounds and accomplishments of the dupes that won distinction by earning the Lenin Peace Prize. I suppose this country hands out the Presidential Medal of Freedom for its major dupes.

If Diogenes set out in search of an honest press over 2000 years ago, he'd still be searching for one to this day.

INFOGALACTIC

These days when I need a quick reference I turn to Infogalactic. It has a new front page and I got a kick out of the happenings on earlier anniversaries of this date in history. Small things. I'm sure the world hardly even noticed....


KIND OF SAYS IT ALL

Lifted from Daily Time Waster


STRATFOR GOES ALL IN FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE

I've been a STRATFOR subscriber for some time now. It occasionally has some meaningful insights into the details beyond the microtomed veneers of the rest of the world provided by the BBC, CNN, FOX, etc. It also has gone visibly downhill in terms of accuracy and is now deliberately masking the details that it used to be known for. Case in point:  Make America … Swedish?
Immediately beneath the mischievous title is:
Editor's Note: The Global Affairs column is curated by Stratfor's board of contributors, a diverse group of thinkers whose expertise inspires rigorous and innovative thought. Their opinions are their own and serve to complement and even challenge our beliefs. We welcome that challenge, and we hope our readers do too.
The authors of this piece of trash purport that Islam is a religion of peace and there is no increase in crime when the children of uneducated, unemployable, impoverished muslims party in the cities of Sweden or anywhere else in the wide world. We know this is so because all of the progressives and feminists and lgbtq leaders keep telling us that islam is a religion of peace and what is happening everywhere in the world is simply a failure of the civilized world to accept the uncivil among us as equals and peers. Here is what noted Progressive liberal Bernie Sanders had to say:
In the first Democratic debate of last year's presidential race, U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders declared from the podium that, "[W]e should look to countries like Denmark, like Sweden and Norway, and learn from what they have accomplished for their working people."
I think it's worth noting that he is talking about the "working people." Well, that's a trip. The workers have cars unless, as happens every single night in islamic neighborhoods and towns, they are set on fire by rampaging "youths." Only 52% of Sweden's muslim migrants have found employment in the years since their arrival. The rest have plenty of time and money to freeload on the working class just the way Bernie Sanders and the socialist elites seem to want.

It is hard to get to the truth in Europe these days, as it always has been. Their news and government officials and police literally lie about everything. They obfuscate, conceal and cover up horrible crimes like the rape gangs that preyed on English girls in places like Rotherham, south Yorkshire, England, United Kingdom, member of the EU. You'd have to be a stupid child to think it didn't happen in just about every town in the United Kingdom. The same sort of blow by blow reporting and in depth investigation didn't happen in Germany at the New Years Eve assaults. Nobody was told the scale of the attacks until months later. One mayor famously told the women of Germany to stay inside, cover up, travel in groups. You know, like .... Well, let's just say that there are roughly a billion people who live in places that don't even pretend to have the thinnest veneer of civilization.

It should be relatively straightforward to get some real numbers in places that have computerized police reporting and take racial data as if it was the only way to get to heaven unless it tells a tale that progressives don't want anybody to linger over and consider. That's kind of how we got Bernie up there saying how great it would be to be almost as progressive as Connecticut or Chicago.

President Trump did well this night with his State of the Union. I only counted 25 "I"s but most of them were understandably necessary and purposeful and not the vain inglorious boasting of his predecessor. The Party of Passion and Liberalism was somewhat muted. That could have been due to me turning the sound off after President Trump concluded and left Congress. After all, who really wants to hear Gigot and Shields and the rest of the People's Party spokes being blather on about their inside the beltway impression of the speech? Not me.

It's a great pity about STRATFOR though. It looks like they are following in the wake of the Washington Post which acheived a new low by hiring Jon Podesta as a columnist to give us his insights into the workings of the Trump administration. I reckon if I want any Podesta insights I'll just read his hacked emails like the Russians and the rest of the world. I'm just surprised the Post hasn't hired that idiot Debbie Wasserman Schultz. She'd be a hoot as a columnist for the Post. If she isn't literally dripping revenge slime from every pore, I miss my guess.
