The Mueller You SHOULD Know

This guy Mueller is a dumkopf at best, and a threat to the US at worst.  After you read the linked item, you will eliminate the "dumkopf" option.  This post has only a few highlights.

The anthrax case is a fine starting point; one of his lieutenants here was James Comey. 2001, letters containing anthrax were mailed to media outlets and the offices of Sens. Tom Daschle, D-S.D., and Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., killing five people and infecting 17 others. The FBI quickly focused on an innocent man named Steven Hatfill, relentlessly pursuing him for years while the real killer walked free....

The guy Mueller persecuted (Hatfill) was paid $5++million in settlement by us normie citizen-taxpayers.  Altogether, this bungle cost about $100 million.  And by the way:  Mueller decided that ANOTHER guy was responsible for the attacks.  That guy killed himself, but even then, the Nat'l Academy of Sciences thought that Mueller's "science" was sketchy.  So did the Gov't Accountability Board.

Nevertheless, he persisted!

Here's the 'National Security Risk' Mueller.   As usual in national security breaches, a close Clinton Family ally is involved.

...when it came to the case of Samuel “Sandy” Berger, a Clinton White House national security adviser. In the run-up to testifying before the 9/11 Commission that sought to examine the failures that led to those terrorist attacks, Berger visited the National Archives to review classified documents with his notes on them.

But instead he intentionally removed and destroyed multiple copies of a classified document the commission should have reviewed for national security purposes, and lied to investigators about it. He was found to have stuffed the documents in his socks and otherwise hidden them. His punishment was that he was allowed to plead guilty in 2005 to a single misdemeanor. He served no jail time but had to give up his security clearance for three years....

And here's Mueller being a Playah in the Deep State Theatre of the Macabre and Absurd.  This show is all about putting Republican allies into prison, as opposed to Democrat allies like Berger.

...After Valerie Plame’s identity as a CIA employee was leaked, a special counsel operation was set up to investigate the leak. Mueller’s deputy Comey pressured John Ashcroft to recuse himself from the case on the grounds he had potential conflicts of interest.

Comey named Patrick Fitzgerald, his close personal friend and godfather to one of his children, to the role of special counsel. Mueller, Comey, and Fitzgerald all knew the whole time that Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage was the leaker. Yet they set things up so Fitzgerald would aggressively investigate the Bush administration for three years, jailed a journalist for not giving up a source, and pursued both Karl Rove and Scooter Libby.

Comey even expanded the investigation’s mandate within weeks of setting up the special counsel. Libby, who was pardoned by President Trump last week, was rung up on a process charge in part thanks to prosecutorial abuse by Fitzgerald. Fitzgerald encouraged a witness to give false testimony by not providing exonerating evidence to her and Libby’s attorneys....

And Mueller's boyzzz prosecuted the Stevens case, which a Fed Judge called the WORST EVER CASE of prosecutorial misconduct he'd seen in his lifetime.  

Lying, cheating, persecuting, spending large and costing the defendant everything:  THESE are the hallmarks of the Deep State/Establishment Class M.O.

These are people who, like Carthage, should be deleted, and buried in unmarked graves at crossroads far from town.   I think Judge Mukasey's 'good men' assessment is flat-out wrong.  "Win at any cost" is not the hallmark of a 'good man.'  It is usually prelude to very bad things.

That's the Mueller you SHOULD know.

"Only WE Can Have Guns!!!"

Some Wisconsin cops signed a petition arguing against "mandated reciprocity" of Concealed Carry permits.  This is being considered in Congress--which is another assault on the 9th Amendment, by the way--but we thought you'd like to know which cops in Wisconsin are undie-bundled over the idea.

Beiderwieden of DePere, Reedy of New Holstein, Uhl of Oregon, Rieper of Cumberland, and (of course) Roman of UW-Madistan cop shop.

Yes, I know.  Some of these guys are Andy and have only one Barney...

Ooohhhh!! Coonies to Walk Out, Again! UPDATED

It appears that Oconomowoc kiddies will march around and around and around and around again, today.

...Oconomowoc's event is being led by Will Grosspietsch, one of the organizers of the March 14 walkout at his school. It will start at 10 a.m., where students will meet outside the school and march to the green in downtown Oconomowoc, arriving around 10:40 a.m. A rally will then begin at 11 a.m. with student speeches. 

Guest speakers will then speak, starting at 11:50 a.m., each having a 20 minute window. First will be Waukesha County Democratic Party Chairman Matt Lowe, followed by Khary Penebaker, the Wisconsin member of the National Democratic National Committee and finally, Mandela Barnes, a former state representative and candidate for lieutenant governor....

Oconomowoc High academics are ranked 325th or so in the latest W.I.L.L. survey.  It occurs to us that the administration might want to concentrate on teaching their students to think, rather than march around and around and around.

(Yesterday, April 19th, was the anniversary of the Shot Heard 'Round the World as the British attempted to impound the arms of the colonists.  That didn't turn out well for the British, and that should be a warning to the twit-brigades--child OR adult--trying to run the same game.)

UPDATE:  There are, generously, two dozen actual students at the event.  There are also two dozen old people (Oconomowoc has a sizeable Lefty population).  The police are on hand to keep an eye on the Democrat speakers.

Sykes Spotted!!

Saw a screen-grab the other day which included Charlie Sykes.

His candidate McMuffin apparently stiffed a few campaign workers for $$low-5-figures.  Egg, however, doesn't appear to give a crap.

Meantime, Charlie's Cruise Captain, the Mouth Without an Audience, Junior Kristol, gets an ass-whipping from an actual Conservative.

...You know all that insufferable babbling and crying about "principles" we had to endure from you Never Trump Konservative Ken Dolls? Your rending of your cheap suits, your 180s over classic GOP policies because The Donald actually tried to enact them, and your mortifying blubbering to suddenly sympathetic hosts on MSNBC and CNN about how awful our President is? With your sad, drawn faces and high-pitched voices, you True Conservatives of Conservatisn [TM], you Keepers of the Flame of Conservativeness resisted the coming of Donald Trump (and those who supported him) because... because... 

Because that's not who we are...
Because we're better than that...

Because... our principles!

Our principles. Yeah, right. Well, it was all a crock, a con, a grift by a bunch of displaced Beltway strivers furious that the marks -- that's us Normals -- wised up to their scam, played the players, and sent them packing.....--quoted at AOSHQ

Yes, I voted Cruz--but only in the primary.  Trump has been a very pleasant surprise.  He has rough spots, but I didn't vote for a Saint.  Just a President who gives a damn about the USA and ALL its citizens.

Liked "The Blues Brothers"??

Ran down to Joliet today. 

Jake and Elwood had left the building.

But if you REALLY, REALLY, REALLY liked the movie, you'll be happy to know that you can spend a day and night in the Federal prison there, where the opening scenes of the movie were shot.

Which gives rise to the question:  Just how much of a Belushi/Akroyd nut do you have to be to spend a few days in a closed Federal Graybar Hotel??

UW-Mad and the KKK

Interesting little story here about a number of UW-Madison students who also were members of the KKK.  UW has a problem because the names of a couple of them are plastered on markers around the campus. 

The story doesn't mention it, but the KKK had another major target besides blacks.


Not for nothing did my Daddy tell me that UW-Madison was an anti-Catholic school.

By the way, UW is not going to tear everything down and salt the earth, which is a relief.  They're not going the Idiot Route that some of the Southern States are taking.


Bishop Sheen. You Should Know His Name

Many of our Catholic friends know of Bp. Fulton Sheen, but of course our friends are demi-geriatrics.  The kids?  That's another thing.  They don't know about him, or maybe--if their parents bring it up--they've 'heard of the guy.'  He's on his way to being canonized a Saint of the Church.

So I've read, by luck, several dozen of his short essays are contained in a book:  "On Being Human" which is still available (!!!) and YOU SHOULD BUY IT.


Sheen taught at Catholic University, worked in New York as a parish priest and Auxiliary Bishop, and had a very successful radio and television career from 1930-1968 or so.  His TV series "Life is Worth Living" is available on YouTubeYOU SHOULD WATCH IT. 

He had a very good grasp of societal trends--just reading these essays can bring a knowing grin to one's face.

Today I ran across a passage which is remarkable.  Sheen was discussing the receding of Reason in the US and he wrote:

"What has taken the place of reason?  Emotion, feeling, sentiment, repetition, subliminal suggestion, the irrational and glandular reaction.  The blindfolded lady of Reason has given way to the Aeolian harp....

"One notices this particularly in the Aeolian harps of the 20th century:  radio and television.  Practically no advertisement appeals to reason....

"What effect does the antirational or Aeolian harp have on religion?  Religion which appeals to reason, justice, sin, and Word Incarnate has little appeal to the emotional masses of people.  Religion is aboveground with reason and theology; the masses are underground with doubts, fears, frustrations, anxieties, dreads.  ..."

When the most-used expression is "I feel......." instead of "I THINK......" you know that Sheen was right.  You can smell the lack of Reason in politics, of course; that's a given.  But that lack of Reason has assaulted the Law, too.  That's going to be a problem.

Ask Sheen to pray for us.  And buy the book!

Pretty Much Says It All

Schlichter observes that the Pubbie Poohbahs in DC/NY think it's all over but the shouting for November.

...But nothing is a done deal. We have six months. The Republicans just need to get smart and fight.

Oh. Well, we’re doomed....

Pretty much the case.

...Yes, the Democrats do have a major advantage in the fact that the Republican establishment, especially in Congress, is largely a gaggle of drooling idiots. From Sissy Sasse to Foamy Marco, these fussy failures seem determined to demoralize the base with their tedious moralizing about how “We are better than that” and “Oh, well I never.” The GOP would have no problem if these dorks had just one tenth the will to win as they do the will to posture for the benefit of a liberal media that hates them and that will disembowel them the moment they stop being useful idiots and become merely idiots....--quoted at ColdFury

Yup.  That's true, too. 

Well.   Given what we saw in Wisconsin with the G.A.B. and the sleazeballs Falk, Schmitz, and  Chisholm--and the fact that it's being repeated in D.C. with another bunch of slimebucket lawyers, the thing to do is this:


And know how to use it.

Should Be Interesting: (D) Gov Candidate

Some guy who works at a radio station pronounced "WIERD"--and it fits--is going to run in the (D) primary for Governor.

[Mike] Crute, who co-hosts the Devil’s Advocates Radio Show on WRRD 1510 AM in Milwaukee and WTTN 1580 AM in Madison and Columbus, told the Wisconsin State Journal he’s interviewed all of the other Democratic candidates for governor and wasn’t impressed with any of them.

“I don’t think any of them are being bold enough as campaigners to beat Scott Walker,” Crute told the State Journal. “I’m going to be shockingly bold. That means tune in.”

Crute has hired former “non-partisan” Government Accountability Board (GAB) attorney Shane Falk to be his election attorney....

Falk is easily the slimiest lawyer in the Upper Midwest.  Blago of Illinois isn't even close to Falk in that contest.  These are the people that a good cop follows around, knowing that there will be an incident.  And if you have children, make sure you're armed if these people are nearby.

Why the Rush Job, Congress?

We are told that Chairman Goodlatte (Judiciary), Chairman Nunes (Intel) and Chairman Gowdy (Oversight) are pressing the Department of Justice for unredacted memos from Comey on...whatever.


Recall that Gowdy is a Very Suspicious Character who more and more seems to be serving the Deep State rather than actual US citizen/taxpayers.  Nunes is a showboater.  Goodlatte's been around DC for a very long time........take it for what it's worth.


...U.S. Prosecutor John Huber is paralleling IG Horowitz on all investigative findings that fall into potentially criminal conduct.  The evidence being culled into the Huber files are not going to congress because they are potentially evidence in ongoing criminal cases.  The Huber evidence contains grand jury material and evidence of likely criminal conduct....

Once the material gets into Congress, it loses viability as criminal evidence, if nothing else but because the criminals then KNOW WHAT WE KNOW.  Get it?

So to repeat?  Why the Rush Job?  Hmmmmm??

Milo (!!) v. Fr Martin and Twit Megan Fox

Apparently the Jebbies' America magarag interviewed Milo Yiannopolous on the topic of homosexuality, but has spiked the item.

Maybe that has to do with Milo's aggressive non-PC approach to matters?

..."Amusingly, while the Jesuits struggled to decide if they could bear to publish my answers, one of the Church’s highest ranking Cardinals called out Fr. Martin by name as 'one of the most outspoken critics of the Church’s message with regard to sexuality,'" he said. "That means my side in this dispute enjoys support from a black prince of the Church [Cdl. Sarah] raised on a continent where martyrdom is common, while the other side’s champion is a white bourgeois man in whose life the worst threat is that the wine is a bit off this week. Ask yourself:  Which of these men would you want to have your six?"...

Well, indeed.....

Meantime, the author of the linked piece, one Megan Fox, confuses "free speech" with "spouting idiocy on Church grounds."

...Fr. Martin was recently disinvited from speaking at several events over the controversy, which should not happen in America. Shutting down speech is something the left does that conservative people should shun. It is imperative to respond to any hotly debated topic with more reasoned arguments, not less....

Ms. Fox, actual Conservatism recognizes that there is an end--a telos--which is The Prize, and speech which clouds the way to that telos, or which derogates from the priority of The Prize, should be banned under most circumstances.  In other words, "free speech" is not an absolute, just as SCOTUS has ruled.

It's not that Ms. Fox doesn't have a good grasp of the issues here; it's that she mis-understands priorities.  Since Fr. Martin is an excellent stand-in for Old Scratch, whose lies are NEVER blatant, Fr. Martin does not belong on a college campus except under tightly-controlled conditions.

Meantime, Milo is asking for prayer.  Let's accommodate him.

Did Trump Get Suckered?

Codevilla is barely able to disguise his contempt for the War Party wackos who apparently suckered Trump with pictures of crying children.

[The strikes'] only consequence is to highlight the poverty of the foreign policy of which they are part: driven by questionable intelligence, the “CNN effect,” and an inability to come to grips with real problems.

The strikes did a little harm to Syrian leader Bashar al Assad, who is a dependent of Iran and Russia and who is nearly helpless vis à vis our newest enemy, Turkey. Iran is extending its reach to the Mediterranean and threatening war on Israel. Russia is solidifying hegemony over the Middle East. Turkey is making war on the Kurds, the only real allies the United States has had in the region in a generation. Instead of braking any of these ominous developments, the U.S. government, reverting to type, destroyed a few buildings and hyped its own virtues in garbled neo-Wilsonian lingo.

The U.S. government’s claim that the Assad regime used chlorine gas and sarin together (that would be a first) against civilians separately from movement of ground troops (military nonsense) may or may not be correct. The government presented no evidence except videos. When it does have evidence, it usually crows. “Tin foil hats” are not necessary for skepticism, given U.S. intelligence’s historic and unbroken allergy to checking information that comes over the transom, its reflexive reaction to cable news reports of reported atrocities, and its own penchant for grandstanding

Live by the TeeVee, die by the TeeVee.  Next time, Donald, we hope you know how propaganda works.  

Note to Area Church Musicians

Fr Hunwicke researched the workings of Screwtape and came up with this little gem.

"Music and silence - how I detest them both! How thankful we should be that ever since our Father entered Hell ... no square inch of infernal time has been surrendered to either of those abominable forces, but all has been occupied by Noise - Noise, the grand dynamism, the audible expression of all that is exultant, ruthless and virile - Noise which alone defends us from silly qualms, despairing scruples and impossible desires. We will make the whole universe a noise in the end. We have already made great strides in this direction as regards the Earth. The melodies and silences of Heaven will be shouted down in the end. But I admit we are not yet loud enough, or anything like it. Research is in progress ..."...

Yes, indeed.  Only 2 days ago I was assaulted by "noise" in the local parish--even though the 'noise' contained (badly-sung) elements of Chant, as an excuse for its existence.  Nonetheless, it was "noise," and apparently sanctioned by the pastor.

Shortening Purgatory!!!

Sorry, Bolton: NO GAS ATTACK in Syria

Something rather odd is going on here.

Robert Fisk's bombshell first-hand account for the UK Independent runs contrary to nearly every claim circulating in major international press concerning what happened just over week ago on April 7th in an embattled suburb outside Damascus: not only has the veteran British journalist found no evidence of a mass chemical attack, but he's encountered multiple local eyewitnesses who experienced the chaos of that night, but who say the gas attack never happened.

Fisk is the first Western journalist to reach and report from the site of the alleged chemical weapons attack widely blamed on Assad's forces. Writing from Douma in eastern Ghouta, Fisk has interviewed a Syrian doctor who works at the hospital shown in one of the well-known videos which purports to depict victims of a chemical attack. ...

Far be it from us to suggest that the War Party/Deep State could have lied to Trump.  Certainly, if Sean Hannity and Stash Bolton believe whatever video they see, it has to be true, right?

Trump may have caught on to the scam; he's pulled back on more punishment for Russia.

What the Hell is Alex Acosta Thinking?

Alex Acosta is Trump's Secretary of Labor.

While he can't be faulted for what the Obozo DoL started, he CAN be faulted for continuing cases as stupid as this one.  In fact, he should be taken out to the shed for a good horsewhipping.

Maybe he IS the mental twin to that CNN stooge.

HT:  PowerLIne

Trump Doesn't Bother With "Laws"

It would appear that Trump has a bad case of Swamp Fever, which manifests in "I'm ABOVE the Law!!" outbursts.

Despite TrumpBolton claims to the contrary, the President did NOT HAVE THE AUTHORITY to toss a bunch of missiles at Syrian installations.  (As we noted below, there's question whether he even had the moral authority to do so.)

"While the president has the authority under the War Powers Act to respond when the U.S. is under attack or in imminent danger, such circumstances did not exist with regard to Syria," [Sen. Mike Lee of Utah] added. "Promoting regional stability, mitigating humanitarian catastrophe, and deterring the use of chemical weapons might be important foreign policy goals, but if they are to be pursued with military force, a president must first seek congressional authorization.”...

This is a troublesome sign, although hardly without precedent in the last 30 years.

Gowdy: Up to No Good, Again

Gowdy is notorious for a couple of things:  his ever-changing hairstyle and his penchant for pulling punches.  The hairstyle thing could be read a lot of ways (none good), but his pulled punches were ALWAYS pulled away from the Deep State.  Gowdy never landed a blow there.

And so it comes to pass that Gowdy wants to 'hold a hearing' with the DoJ's inspector general as the guest for this little Court of Star Chamber.

This will give Gowdy (and all his friends like Sasse, Ryan, Little Marco, etc., etc., etc.) the opportunity to submarine the IG's findings, which should be very interesting and which should lead to multiple indictments, trials, and Graybar Hotel addresses.

"The Guy (Comey) Is Wacky"

That's Joe diGenova in an interview following the Comey spew on teevee.  Like most Americans, I did not watch it--but I've seen the clips on the intertubes, and had this nagging little set of red flags every time I saw one.

diGenova put it succinctly, and he's right.  Comey seems to be disconnected from reality--likely because he has not perfected cognitive dissonance as well as did Bill Clinton.

(By the way, Gowdy is brought up later, and looks more and more like just another Deep State plant.  His hairdo should be the tell.)

"Education" in the Milwaukee Public Schools

NAEP figures came out.

The Milwaukee Public Schools' grade-schools were measured on the NAEP tests.

How bad was it?

Horrible.  AwfulTerrible.  Rotten.  Or worse.....

In mathematics, the percentage of students 'above proficient' was 15% in 4th grade, 12% in 8th.

In reading, the percentage of students 'above proficient' was 15% in 4th, 15% in 8th.

In science, the percentage of students 'above proficient' was 12% in 4th, 6% in 8th.  (Yes, 6%.)

Want a comparison?  OK.  Lets' go Statewide public schools!!!

(Same breakdowns, at or above "proficient"):

mathematics42%, 39%

reading35%, 39%

science41%, 40%

There is no Wisconsin-only score-sheet for private schools.  So we'll use the national numbers for grade schools as above.

mathematics48%, 47%

reading49%, 57%

science48%, 43%

So nationally, PRIVATE schools delivered 300-600% better results than Milwaukee PUBLIC schools. 

Sounds like more "choice" schools would be immoral, rotten, and terrible for the students.

Here, KittyKitty.....BOOM!

Some Mayor is not popular.

The city of Jefferson has come up with a solution that involves shooting cats to control the population.

There are multiple feral cat colonies in the central Iowa town, and the city claims shooting the animals is its only option....

Hmmm.  AR-15?  .22LR?  9mm H&K? .17 GAMO?

Inquiring minds want to know!!!

The Stupid Party Returns

Priebus, interviewed by a student newspaper.

...“I think post-Trump, the party returns to its traditional role and its traditional platform. It’s a Trump brand and he owns it and he has a way of protecting it,” Priebus said....

Well, there you have it.  Save your money.  Donate to your local gun retailer.

The Stupids: Broward County

In the family of The Stupids, Broward County emerges as a leader.  That's because Broward County bought into the Obozo/Holder juvenile crime bullshit.

Broward County, Fla., school officials portray as a great success their Obama administration-inspired program offering counseling to students who break the law, instead of having them arrested or expelled....

...Broward County juvenile justice division records, federal studies of Broward school district safety and the district's own internal reporting show that years of “intensive" counseling didn’t just fail to reform repeat offender Cruz, who allegedly went on to shoot and kill 17 people at his high school. Records show such policies have failed to curtail other campus violence and its effects now on the rise in district schools — including fighting, weapons use, bullying and related suicides.

Meanwhile, murders, armed robberies and other violent felonies committed by children outside of schools have hit record levels, and some see a connection with what’s happening on school grounds....

Might be useful to determine the REAL reason that Milwaukee's Superintendent of Schools quit.  After all, MPD remains under threat from the Dep't of Justice, which wants MPD to institute a Broward County-like program.

Ain't that special??

Clinton-Ordered Massacre 25th Anniversary

Actually, the anniversary was yesterday.

It was called Operation Trojan Horse, a raid by agents of the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms in search of what they said were illegal weapons being made by a religious sect outside Waco.

The gun battle that ensued left six members of the Branch Davidians — a breakaway Seventh Day Adventist sect — and four ATF agents dead and set the stage for a 51-day siege of a communal residence known as Mount Carmel. It would end on April 19, 1993, amid tanks and tear gas, in an inferno in which 76 people, including 21 children, perished....

If you've read the post below, you know that the Clinton Crime Family is capable of anything, including killing children.  For all we know these 21 are just the tip of the iceberg.

How Lynch/Comey Quashed Clinton Investigation UPDATED!

You have to read the whole post; details matter.  But here's the ugly-short takeaway stuff.

...[Erik] Prince claimed he had insider knowledge of the investigation that could help explain why FBI Director James Comey had to announce he was reopening the investigation into Clinton’s email server last week.

“Because of Weinergate and the sexting scandal, the NYPD started investigating it. Through a subpoena, through a warrant, they searched his laptop, and sure enough, found those 650,000 emails. They found way more stuff than just more information pertaining to the inappropriate sexting the guy was doing,” Prince claimed.

They found State Department emails. They found a lot of other really damning criminal information, including money laundering, including the fact that Hillary went to this sex island with convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein. Bill Clinton went there more than 20 times. Hillary Clinton went there at least six times,” he said.

“The amount of garbage that they found in these emails, of criminal activity by Hillary, by her immediate circle, and even by other Democratic members of Congress was so disgusting they gave it to the FBI, and they said, ‘We’re going to go public with this if you don’t reopen the investigation and you don’t do the right thing with timely indictments,’” Prince explained.

“I believe – I know, and this is from a very well-placed source of mine at 1PP, One Police Plaza in New York
the NYPD wanted to do a press conference announcing the warrants and the additional arrests they were making in this investigation, and they’ve gotten huge pushback, to the point of coercion, from the Justice Department, with the Justice Department threatening to charge someone that had been unrelated in the accidental heart attack death of Eric Garner almost two years ago. That’s the level of pushback the Obama Justice Department is doing against actually seeking justice in the email and other related criminal matters,” Prince said.

Erik Prince's name has come up a few times recently.  In each case, Prince was cast as a shadowy Bad Guy (by various not-R sources).  Now you know why.  Prince is being threatened, exactly as the NYPD was threatened.

Finally, this:

...I cannot help but be reminded of a post-election event where an FBI official from the same NY field office had her vehicle broken into and a laptop stolen which included “National Security information“.  Everything was recovered, except the laptop....

It was not "stolen" of course.  It was "disappeared" by one of Hillary's minions in FBI or DoJ.  Rest assured, nobody will be searching the bottom of the East River for it.

UPDATE:  Another reference to Obama's interference in the case can be found here.

Ugly, Ugly, Weather

Recognizing that people about 100 miles north of here are dealing with 12" - 20" of snow--OK, they get a little sympathy.

But it's ugly here, too.  Freezing rain last night, which accumulated between lanes on the highways making passing the (ultra-slow grannies) ...ahhh.....exciting!!

When the freezing rain stopped, it became snow.  You're talking super-dooper-snowball snow!!  Snow that you could roll into a 6', 3-segment snowman in 20 minutes or less, except that your back couldn't take the load.   It was so thick and unforgiving that a 20-mile trip on 2- and 3-lane highways took about 50 minutes this morning.  Ugly.

The usual snow-to-rain conversion ratio is 1" snow would be 1/10th" rain (10 to 1). This stuff is probably 30% wet.  If it gets cold, it will become like granite.

Fortunately, it will be gone by Wednesday or so.  We think.  Maybe. 

And it could come back; in 1988 (??) we had a 4" pile of similar-weight snow that created a LOT of firewood from fully-leafed-out--and then broken--trees.  That was in May.

Milwaukee Crime Stats

This is interesting, but not surprising.

According to the 2010 census, Milwaukee is 40 percent black, 37 percent white, and 17.3 percent Hispanic.

The 2016 Annual Report on “Homicides and Nonfatal Shootings in Milwaukee” from the Milwaukee Homicide Review Commission states there were 139 homicides and 555 non-fatal shooting victims in the city in 2016.

Suspects were not identified in all of these cases, but of those that were, the commission found that 79 percent of homicide suspects in 2016 were black, 11 percent were Hispanic, and 10 percent were white. For non-fatal shootings, 88 percent of suspects were black, 6 percent were white, and five percent were Hispanic....

So of course, the Usual Suspects declare that law-abiding whites should NOT own guns.

Facebook HQ Addition

Reported by the Babylon Bee.

In the midst of a scandal involving the unauthorized transfer of its users’ data for political purposes, Facebook proudly unveiled a brand new, giant Lidless Eye of Sauron atop the company’s Menlo Park headquarters.

The Eye of Sauron will be used to examine Facebook users’ every action, online and off.

The fiery Great Eye reportedly cost over seven trillion dollars and came with all the latest surveillance technology, including the ability to detect evil thoughts and motives as well as any negative emotions about Facebook or Mark Zuckerberg....

You can find another Eye of Sauron atop the ATT building in downtown Indy (or maybe Lexington.)

Brits Lied About Russki Spy Poisoning

False flag flying....

...The substance used on Sergei Skripal was an agent called BZ, according to Swiss state Spiez lab, the Russian foreign minister said. The toxin was never produced in Russia, but was in service in the US, UK, and other NATO states.
Sergei Skripal, a former Russian double agent, and his daughter Yulia were poisoned with an incapacitating toxin known as 3-Quinuclidinyl benzilate or BZ, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said, citing the results of the examination conducted by a Swiss chemical lab that worked with the samples that London handed over to the Organisation for the Prohibition of the Chemical Weapons (OPCW)
....RT quoted at Vox Pop

I suppose that a Russki agent could have gone down to the apothecary and purchased some BZ, of course.

Otherwise, as Vox asks:  Why would the Brits lie about this?

Yes, Virginia, There IS Media Bias

Bloomberg is a reliably Lefty news source, so I read it every day.  Gives you an idea of the "thought" process the Lefty media (yes, I repeat myself) uses.

Here's a great example.

General Motors Co. will fire as many as 1,500 workers at the end of June at the Ohio factory building the Chevrolet Cruze compact car, undercutting President Donald Trump’s bombast about bringing back auto jobs....

The snide little 7th-grader-level remark about Trump has nothing whatsoever to do with the Lordstown plant's layoffs.  (And by the way, a layoff is not a "firing."  Not with the UAW's contract it ain't.)

Here's the reality:

...GM’s plans for its Ohio factory are the result of American consumers snubbing cars in favor of crossovers. Cruze sales plunged 26 percent in the first three months of the year to less than 40,000 units and slipped 2.2 percent last year....

Trump has motivated the automotives to move jobs into the USA.  It's not Trump's problem that nobody wants to purchase sedans these days.   What Bloomberg spewed is--at best--half-truth.

End of today's Media Bias lesson.

Slimeball Central: Fitzgerald and Comey

We all know that Scooter Libby's prosecutor (Fitzgerald) withheld exculpatory evidence in obtaining a process-crime 'conviction' on Libby.

But here's something I didn't know:

...Mr. Fitzgerald was friends with James B. Comey, who was then the deputy attorney general who assigned him the investigation after the attorney general recused himself....

Connecting Weissman to this bunch would be a trifecta.

But then, what rubes and morons actually think there's such a thing as "justice" in the Department of Justice?  That's a notion which should have been shitcanned at least 20 years ago.

Is Gorka's Moralizing Actually Moral?

Gorka moralized both on the Ingraham show and earlier on Hannity.  I saw the Hannity offering and Gorka was near-whining while maintaining his "White-Knight-USA" position.  It was tiresome listening.

The gist of his argument was not that the US should resolve every 'problem' in the world, nor even every instance of use of chemical weapons against civilians--but that the US must act on those instances "where we are able."

Since the US maintains a military presence in Europe and in SE Asia and is able to strike about 90% of the Earth's surface, Gorka's formula makes the US liable for a helluvalot of rescue activity, no?

Unfortunately, Just War Theory as currently iterated makes Gorka's moralizing ...ahhh....immoral.  JWT demands that the US be attacked by Syria.  One could--possibly--stretch JWT to cover the "US National Interest" being under attack, but Gorka did not make that case, much less a case based on current JWT.

Maybe instead of being a tiresome nag, Gorka could come up with moralizing that is actually moral.  It would make for much more interesting TV.

Comey's Book

Heard one review last night--very late--wherein the two men talking about it referred to it as 'seemingly written by a junior-high school girl.'

Then Chris Wallace calls it "bitchy."

Well.  Apparently the book's prose is all that, and more!

McCabe Leak Was Against Hillary (!!!)

The whole IG investigation of McCabe happened because he leaked info which dirtied Hillary's skirts--specifically, that there was an FBI investigation of the Clinton Family Foundation.


And of course, he lied about that leak, so he was fired.

...Note that if this is true, we have Obama officials attempting to pressure FBI officials to drop an investigation into Obama's would-be successor, Hillary Clinton.

Yet I don't think the media will be talking about that.

It was this leak, and apparently only this leak, that roused the Deep State enough to get them to investigate McCabe for leaking.

The conclusions of the report is that McCabe was asked twice, not under oath, by the FBI if he had leaked to the WSJ about this or if he knew who had leaked to the WSJ about this. He claimed he did not leak and did not know who did, despite being in frequent communication with "Special Counsel" before and after her call to the WSJ making the leak, and asking her how it went and etc....

As Ace observes, shooting at The Queen of the Coven is dangerous, indeed.

Plenty more IG reports to follow, by the way.  This is only Part One of at least three.....

Go, RoJo, GO!!!!

Ron Johnson is pressing forward on an inquiry about the FBI, the Department of Injustice, and the emails of Hildebeeste.  (Watch your back, Ron.  Clintoncide, and all that.  Stay away from Ft. Marcy Park.)


...Johnson is seeking information on the FBI's probe into Clinton's use of a private email server while she was U.S. secretary of state....

...In January 2017, the Justice Department inspector general launched an investigation into the FBI's handling of the Clinton email probe.

Johnson said the "whole purpose" of his quest to gain more information on the probe is "to restore confidence in the FBI and the Department of Justice."

He said he had a "great deal of confidence" with the majority of people who "toil in those agencies."
"But there is a taint, there is suspicions," he added....

Well, Ron, so long as there's one law for Hillary and another one for Joe Schlub, citizen, then there will be "suspicions."  But you knew that.


"Discerning" Will Kill Humanae Vitae AND.....

Janet Smith IS one of the sharpest knives in the Catholic theological drawer.  We've admired her work since she was at U of Dallas.  Her commentary and teaching is direct and easily understood; no pettifogging for her!

And yes, she's betting that Amoris Laetitia will undermine and then demolish the teaching of Humanae Vitae.  

But that's not all.  The "discernment" crowd is philosophically identical to the "evolving Constitution" crowd which has been actively undermining the Rule of Law in the USA.


...Famed Catholic author Janet Smith, speaking to a group gathered at The Catholic University of America (CUA), in Washington, DC on April 5, warned of new challenges to the Church’s teaching against contraception that will arise in coming years, centered around the concepts of conscience and discernment.

In particular, theologians who Smith identifies as “discerners” will focus not on the authority of conscience as it is traditionally understood, but on a “very different understanding of what the conscience is. This is what we very much have to catch.”

“In a general sense, the interpreters, the discerners of Amoris Laetitia say that the development in moral theology in Amoris Laetitia is pastoral, not doctrinal,” said Smith.  This is key, because it frees them to say, “we’re not changing doctrine at all; we’re just changing how we apply doctrine.  We’re not even applying doctrine.  We’re just helping consciences discern.” ...

That "discernment" may well run contrary to the Natural Law; but of course, that's the objective.

...In essence, the discerners are pushing the idea that there are no absolute moral norms.  For them, natural law, “does not include universal, immutable norms” but instead is dynamic, experiential, historical, and cultural.”  Natural law is “gradually discovered, and could change if the culture changes.”...

If you've been paying attention over the last 50 years, you'll recognize that 'dynamic, experiential, historical, cultural' language--because it's been used by Federal and State jurists who are actively demolishing the US Constitution.  They have found "rights" such as abortion and have un-found rights, such as bearing arms.

Don't just sit there and be surprised.


"Exclusive....Feminist Club"? FAR Worse....

You may recall that the Hildebeeste spoke before what the MSM called 'an exclusive, membership-only, feminist club' in New York City.

Well, it IS for women only, because it is a coven of witches.  And now Hildebeeste is a member.  Surprised?

Lena Dunham is--reportedly-- one of the founders, by the way.

Pompeo. A Real Man

Apparently Mike Pompeo was asked to visit with the Senate Foreign Relations committee pursuant to his nomination as SecState.

During that hearing, some pompous ass played to his queer voters.

Pompeo did what a Real Man does:  told the Senator that nothing has changed.  Fags should not be married to each other, period.


Let's WAR!!!! on Russia, or Somebody!!!

It's not hard to find the warmongers.

It's hard to believe that they have any credibility or traction, especially with the President.

You want war?  Buy an AR-15 and ammo and a ticket to Syria.

Learn how to fight.
