Don't Cry For Me

US District Court

Judge Thomas Griesa declared Argentina in contempt of court Monday in the ongoing saga of Argentina's 100 billion dollar default.  Judge Griesa found that Argentina has been routinely ignoring his court orders for the past year.

Argentina was booked and is being held at Riker's Island.

Seriously though...

Can a sovereign nation be held in contempt of another nation's courts? Argentina claimed no, calling the action absurd and unlawful interference in a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry.  Although the Judge issued the contempt declaration he did not impose any penalties at this time.  Lawyers for the plaintiff asked for $50,000/day in fines.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement policy prohibits arrests at religious buildings.  Well that's stupid.

A network of two dozen churches has promised to offer “physical sanctuary” to illegal immigrants facing deportation, saying they want to create a safe haven that federal officials won’t invade as a way of preventing the migrants from being kicked out of the country. WT

Any church aiding and abetting the violation of US law ought to have their tax exempt status immediately revoked. Whether you're Christian, Muslim, or Rastafarian... your religious beliefs don't trump US Law.  The concept of the church as a place of legal or political sanctuary went out in the 17th century.

The Takeaway...

I'm bombing the Khorasan Group in Syria because frankly, I'd look like an idiot bombing al-Qaeda.  It wouldn't fit the narrative.

Which if you recall from previous speeches was:

"al Qaeda is on the path to defeat, and Osama bin Laden is dead." 

"We have gone after the terrorists who actually attacked us 9/11 and decimated al Qaeda."

“al Qaeda has been weakened"

“al Qaeda’s core leadership has been decimated.”

"today, al Qaeda is on its heels"

Yes, apparently al Qaeda is on its heels in Syria planning to blow up American and European subways.

The Khorasan Group IS al-Qaeda

The Zombie Apocalypse is Upon Us!!!

Photo: Teujune

Two Ebola patients, who died of the virus in separate communities in Nimba County have reportedly resurrected in the county. The victims, both females, believed to be in their 60s and 40s respectively, died of the Ebola virus recently in Hope Village Community and the Catholic Community in Ganta, Nimba.

News of the resurrection of the two victims has reportedly created panic in residents of Hope Village Community and Ganta at large, with some citizens describing Dorris Quoi as a ghost, who shouldn't live among them. Since the Ebola outbreak in Nimba County, this is the first incident of dead victims resurrecting.

Eat your peas OR ELSE


Seattle city council votes to start fining residents and businesses for wasting food.  $1 per can for residents, $50 per month for businesses.

Seattle Times
Seattle Clerk

Ostensibly this is to encourage composting... can you imagine what Seattle, a city of 650,000 people will look and smell like in five years with a 100% compliance rate.  Now I know that composting doesn't smell if done right, but this is Seattle we're talking about here, not to mention the abundance of wildlife this is likely to attract.  Trash will be inspected, and if it contains more than 10% food waste the fines will be imposed.

This also begs the question of how Seattle's finest sanitation engineers are going to be able to tell 9% from 10% or even 11% from a cursory examination of one's garbage, last time I checked sanitation engineers weren't the finest mathematicians in the world.

Me, I'd just start peeing in my trash, I might still have to pay the fine but I'd be able to do so with a deep rooted sense of satisfaction.

Fight the Power

Wake up, progressive apologists. You have become the stodgy, regressive establishment.  There is no labor shortage. Unemployment is the problem. Remember?

Senator Jeff Sessions:  Don't Give Masters of the Universe Their Amnesty

Our political, cultural and financial elites don’t give two shits about ordinary people. The Silicon Valley Masters of the Universe, modern day robber barons, are labor exploiters and bigots whose workforce is overwhelmingly white male, but they throw some nickels and dimes to progressive causes and America's leftists bow down and worship them.

America's political, corporate and cultural elites hide behind walled communities and send their children to private schools, so they and their loved ones are shielded from the societal dysfunction and cultural decay their anti-American policies foster.
Source:  UPI - Santanist Statue "Erected"

Given how our feral government views it subjects, the statue pictured to the right should be the new national symbol of the Government of the United States.

That’s right. Out feral government is a red devil with horns and an erect penis, penetrating every orifice of the populace, and even creating new ones where none previously existed.

As long as the elites rest easy, assured of their comfort and safety, nothing will change in this country.

Meet the New War
Photo: Pazuzu
 Same as the Old War
Photo: Hautala
NY Times: The United States and allies launched airstrikes against Sunni militants in Syria early Tuesday, unleashing a torrent of cruise missiles and precision-guided bombs from the air and sea on the militants’ de facto capital of Raqqa and along the porous Iraq border.
"I can confirm that U.S. military and partner nation forces are undertaking military action against ISIL terrorists in Syria using a mix of fighter, bomber and Tomahawk Land Attack Missiles," said Rear Adm. John Kirby, the Pentagon press secretary. 

The first picture is of an AGM-86 C Air Launched Cruise Missile, the second is of the Fieseler Fi-103, known to the West as the V-1.  While referred to as the Buzz Bomb in England, the Germans called it Vergeltungswaffen; translation: retaliatory or reprisal weapon.

The AGM-86 C carries either a Block 0 2000lb conventional warhead or a Block 1 3000lb conventional warhead, the AGM-86 D carries a 1290lb unitary penetrator or bunker buster.

I just blundered across the striking similarity in design and purpose, again... the AGM-86C and the Fieseler Fi-103:

 The more things change
the more they remain the same

Air attacks in support of ground troops can be decisive in battle, air attacks alone are likely to be no more effective than the 9,521 V-1's launched at London by the Germans in WWII, that is unless you're willing to launch the B-variant which contains the "Physics package".

And in the world of believe it or not, the AGM-86C costs roughly 1.2 million, the AGM-86D costs 1.8 million... 

The AGM-86B only costs a clean 1 million, and if you hadn't figured out what the "physics package" is, it contains a W80 variable yield 5-150 kiloton fusion device. 

Strategic Bombing

If you lived in London or Berlin in WWII or today, if not killed outright in the attack, conventional bombing could ruin your whole day and many days to follow.  The problem is we're bombing people, if not killed in the actual attack, whose lives aren't really going to change at all - post bombing.  Strategic bombing is an element of psychological warfare designed to break the enemies will to fight, without the psychological impact of altered lifestyle there is no impact.  

The people of London and Berlin in the bombings of WWII suffered major impact from the loss of utilities: electrical, water, sewer... you cant deny electricity to people not reliant upon it, you can't deny water to people who draw it from a river, and you can't deny sewer service to someone that poops in a hole.  I would venture that this costly escapade is no more, if not less effective than our previous strategic bombing campaigns against other pre-industrial militaries such as the Viet Cong.

Despite its precision, this is nothing more than weak albeit expensive strategic bombing... strategic because without boots on the ground to exploit the effects it cannot be considered 'tactical'.  Frankly, it's pointless, except for the very minor psychological feel-good effect it generates because we're doing something.

If you bomb cavemen back into the
stone age, how will they know?

Fail, Columbia!

Why are we sending our military to fight ebola in Africa?

As a Bill Bennett listener e-mailed in, "Ebola is a virus of peace."

Why are we partnering with perfidious bastards in the Middle East? The Saudis, Qataris, and all the rest are double-dealing serpents, and Iran is waiting like a nest of black widow spiders to quietly sabotage us, and Russia still has at least one military installation in Syria. Will Putin (an ally of Iran and Syria) stand idly by and watch the west's pathetic, half-hearted coalition of cowards and double-talkers drop bombs on Assad's country? Will any of those heavily-armed Arab nations fight?

Is America finished?

Even Bill Bennett, no swivel-eyed rightwing loony, says White House officials have routinely met with representatives of the Muslim brotherhood.

Our government is so infested with all of these parasites that have wormed their way in: Banksters, corporatists, noisy community agitators and grievance hustlers, the Israel lobby, Islamists, stinking Saudis, and now, finally, people who loudly and publicly despise us. Are we the stupidest country in the world?

I am pro-immigration... But...

We should welcome immigrants, especially the poor and the downtrodden whom we believe are assimilable, and we should assimilate them. But that's not what we are doing now. Our government is bringing in high tech and low tech workers to undermine American workers, all at the behest of the US Chamber Pot of Crony Commerce and Silicon Valley robber barons.

Our feral government is also purposely bringing in people who are illiterate in their own language and to whom our culture is alien. America was at one time a marvelous assimilation machine, but the gears are stripped, the carburetor is gunked up and the one-magnificent machine now sputters on two cylinders.

We are consciously and purposefully incapable of assimilating people, so we should not be bringing them in.

Can America Bounce Back?

We are reeling from two failed presidencies in a row. Forces from without and now from within are working for, and sometime openly cheering for, our destruction. Not the destruction of the nation, but of our society. They lob cultural neutron bombs that kill the nation’s founding ideals but leave the corporate and military infrastructure standing. Those two eternal pillars of US power can be easily turned to nefarious purposes.

The domestic and foreign malefactors don't want to murder our dear Columbia, they just want to turn her into a two-bit whore who will do their bidding.

Sure, President Obama and his international corporatist progressives want America to be special, just like people from Burundi or South Turdistan think their country is special...

When Obama and the Pelosicrats start talking about our Islamist enemies in the same overheated, bellicose rhetoric they now reserve for conservatives, Christians and tea partiers, we'll know they are getting serious about a serious threat.

Blasphemers, Heretics, and the like

Grigoriy Myasoyedov 1835-1911 "Baptism by Fire"
But the Bible says:

Bring out of the camp the one who cursed, and let all who heard him lay their hands on his head, and let all the congregation stone him.

Yes it does, but a people should be judged by their actions, not their dusty old words.  I refer to those Islamic apologists that defend Islam by pointing to the Bible and saying "See, your book says it too".

The last person executed for heresy in Britain was Thomas Aikenhead, that was in 1697.  There is not a tribe among men that hasn't killed, killed the outsiders, killed the different, or killed the enemy.  The question then should be, when was the last time they did it?  

Thomas Aquinas said:

“if we compare murder and blasphemy as regards the objects of those sins, it is clear that blasphemy, which is a sin committed directly against God, is more grave than murder, which is a sin against one's neighbor. On the other hand, if we compare them in respect of the harm wrought by them, murder is the graver sin, for murder does more harm to one's neighbor, than blasphemy does to God.” 

To find western nations executing blasphemers one must go back centuries, to find Islamic nations executing blasphemers one generally need look no further than the previous week.

Leftwing Bedwetter Outs Himself

Atlanta Hawks owner Bruce Levenson admitted to sending out a racist e-mail in 2012, and leftwing loons are stepping all over themselves in the latest Pavlovian PC stampede.

Only one problem... The e-mail was not racist. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, who is becoming my favorite social commentator, explains:
I read Levenson’s email. Here’s what I concluded: Levenson is a businessman asking reasonable questions about how to put customers in seats.[...] Levenson wonders whether (according to his observations) the emphasis on hip-hop and gospel music and the fact that the cheerleaders are black, the bars are filled with 90% blacks, kiss cams focus on black fans and time-out contestants are always black has an effect on keeping away white fans.

Seems reasonable to ask those questions. If his arena was filled mostly with whites and he wanted to attract blacks, wouldn’t he be asking how they could de-emphasize white culture and bias toward white contestants and cheerleaders? Don’t you think every corporation in America that is trying to attract a more diverse customer base is discussing how to feature more blacks or Asians or Latinos in their TV ads? (Time - Kareem Abdul-Jabbar)
All I can add is, Amen!

I have two simple questions for you:

Do you think the e-mail was hateful or racist?

If so, which parts?

On a related note, when you compare TMZ and other US outlets’ superficial and sensational coverage to that of London’s Daily Mail (which I understand enjoys quasi-tabloid status... Someone from Britain can correct me if I’m wrong), American ignorance becomes more understandable.

Of the Department of Defense to fight Ebola

Not one soldier, sailor or airman swore to protect and defend the people of Liberia from all viruses foreign or domestic.

Barack Obama on Tuesday called West Africa's deadly Ebola outbreak a looming threat to global security and announced a major expansion of the U.S. role in trying to halt its spread, including deployment of 3,000 troops to the region. ~Yahoo

To date we have spent more than $100 million to address this challenge, USAID also has announced plans to make available up to $75 million in additional funding.  DoD also has requested to reprogram $500 million in Fiscal Year 2014 Overseas Contingency Operations funds for humanitarian assistance.  White House

National Security vs Global Security

It is the duty and responsibility of the President to ensure US national security, not to guarantee the world global security. 

According to a senior military official, Dempsey said at a recent meeting: “The Department of Defense’s number one priority is combating Ebola.” ~ W.J
Really? In that case General Dempsey ought to be court-martialed and the President impeached for this extra-constitutional abuse of power and dereliction of duty.   If one American soldier dies of ebola his blood is on the President's hands.

Ebola is Serious Business

Don't get me wrong, something needs to be done, but it is not for the Department of Defense or for the American soldier to be ordered to do so.  One would have to seriously question the legality of that order within the context of the Constitution of the United States. Frankly, it's not even the responsibility of the US Public Health Service:

The mission of the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps is to protect, promote, and advance the health and safety of our Nation. ~ USPHS
And before you start lecturing me on the epidemiological hazards to national security know that a long, long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, I was a medical technologist.  I'm not saying we ought to do nothing, I am saying the President has no more authority to order US troops into the midst of a peacetime viral outbreak in a foreign country than he has to order the staff of Massachusetts General there.

You can't argue the President is concerned about national security when anyone with ebola can simply waltz across our southern border.  You can't have your cake and eat it too.

The Digital Lynch Mob

Adrian Peterson, Ray Rice, Donald Sterling, Brendan Eich, Vivian Schiller, well you get the idea and the actual list is long.  In some cases it involves a violation of the law, in others it is no more than a contrary opinion, in all cases the subjects were tried, convicted, and sentenced in the court of public opinion. One could call it a mob, or more accurately it should be referred to as a pack, a pack of rabid ravenous wolves.

In Adrian Peterson and Ray Rice's cases they've committed acts defined as criminal by society, acts that if and when committed and convicted result in punishment defined by law and limited by the constitution.  The lynch mob is different, the end results often extreme, far exceeding the crime in terms of viciousness and brutality and certainly in excess of the limits imposed on the state in the administration of punishment.  

In the other cases they're guilty of a far more heinous crime, holding a contrary opinion.  Ask yourself, is Vivian Schiller's crime half as bad as Hester Prynne's? Aided and abetted by the paparazzi, social media and the internet is the whiskey that fires this mob complete with digital torches and pitchforks.

Is this the society you want to live in?  Is this the path to civilization or to bedlam? Left or Right, no one is safe from the inquisition. Ray Rice punched his fiance, Adrian Peterson whipped his child with a switch, both abhorable acts, but who should decide punishment? The State or the Mob?

What are your thoughts?

Did he really say that?

“I was not here in the run-up to Iraq in 2003,” he told a group of visitors who met with him in the White House before his televised speech to the nation, according to several people who were in the meeting. “It would have been fascinating to see the momentum and how it builds.” NYT

Yeah, fascinating.

What's fascinating is how inept he comes across when he doesn't have a teleprompter in front of him, speaks volumes.

A Simple Question

Is there a correlation between increasing cases of Enterovirus D68 and the influx of undocument, unaccompanied minors from Central America flooding into our communities and schools?

Enterovirus sickens more than a dozen in New York
15 kids in Kings County may have Enterovirus D68
Rare virus has sickened hundreds more children

You may never know

As the federal government refuses to disclose the locations to which the majority of undocumented minors are being sent.

Nebraska's governor says 200 children who entered the country illegally were sent to his state without warning and that federal officials are refusing to identify them or their locations. WSJ

Human rhinoviruses and enteroviruses in influenza-like illness in Latin America.

We collected nasopharyngeal swabs at clinics located in eight Latin American countries from 3,375 subjects aged 25 years or younger who presented with influenza-like illness.

Our subjects had a median age of 3 years and a 1.2:1.0 male:female ratio. HRV was identified in 16% and HEV was identified in 3%.

Limited data is available from Latin America regarding the clinical presentation and strains of these viruses in respiratory disease.  


National Institute of Health


EV-D68 infections are thought to occur less commonly than infections with other enteroviruses. It first was identified in California in 1962. Compared with other enteroviruses, EV-D68 has been rarely reported in the U.S. in the past 40 years. ChildrensMN

Back to my first question:

Is there a correlation between increasing cases of HEV-D68 and the increasing number of undocumented, unaccompanied minors from Central America?

Or better yet: Do you think your government would tell you if there were?

9-11, ISIS, Terrorism

Every attempt to make war easy and safe will result in humiliation and disaster.

War is cruelty. There is no use trying to reform it. The crueler it is, the sooner it will be over.

This war differs from other wars, in this particular. We are not fighting armies but a hostile people, and must make old and young, rich and poor, feel the hard hand of war.

If the people raise a great howl against my barbarity and cruelty, I will answer that war is war, and not popularity seeking.

My aim, then, was to whip the rebels, to humble their pride, to follow them to their inmost recesses, and make them fear and dread us. Fear is the beginning of wisdom.

Doomed by Mindless Stupidity

Photo: Bjørn Christian Tørrissen

A recent Washington Post/ABC News poll revealed a serious flaw in the way we Americans think.   Setting aside the presidential ratings:

65% of us think we are "seriously off on the wrong track" while only 31% of us think we are "generally heading in the right direction".

77% of us disapprove of the way congress is doing its job.

61% of us disapprove of Democrats in congress.

72% of us disapprove of Republicans in congress.

Yet 45% of us approve of the job our own representative is doing vs. 41% that disapprove.

Let's face facts... it can't be everyone else's representative  that's screwing things up.

There may be a slim margin of hope in the result that only 23% say that they will reelect their current representative and 67% are "inclined to look around".  But honestly, how many of you think that voters are going to cross party lines or seek an independent or third party instead of just voting how they've always voted from sheer inertia?

In Gorham's Cave...

... on the British Overseas Territory of Gibraltar has been discovered what is believed to be a Neanderthal abstract engraving in the rock under 39,000 years of detritus amid a collection of some 300 Neanderthal tools.

The experts that know such things say that it is an intentional carving, not the byproduct of some other activity like cutting meat.

“The production of purposely made painted or engraved designs on cave walls is recognised as a major cognitive step in human evolution, considered exclusive to modern humans.” National Academy of Sciences

This discovery is forcing academics to rethink our perception of Neanderthals as is the discovery that anywhere from 1-4% of the DNA in Eurasians is Neanderthal DNA. Live Science   The last interbreeding between modern humans and Neanderthals is believed to have occurred perhaps as recently as 37,000 years ago.

Cadillac anounces self driving car

A little late to the game, eh?

GM, the largest U.S. automaker, will introduce a Cadillac model in two years that can travel on the highway without the driver holding the steering wheel or putting a foot on a pedal. The 2017 Cadillac model will feature “Super Cruise” technology that takes control of steering, acceleration and braking at highway speeds of 70 miles per hour or in stop-and-go congested traffic.  

Self driving Cadillac 

That puts it what, three years behind Infiniti and Mercedes?  I guess you don't have to be a technology leader when you know Uncle Sammie will bail your butt out with taxpayer dollars.

If you think he's steering with his knees in the video, he climbs into the back seat at about 1:30.

And the soda can is a reference to Mercedes, which disables active lane control if you take your hands off the wheel for more than a few seconds.  Taping a soda can to the steering wheel fools the sensor into thinking your holding onto the wheel.

Tuesday, September 2, 2014


I present here a snarl of news, commentary and advice on what to do about ISIS, specifically in light of developments in Syria. Usually, I like excerpting key points of the links I provide, but the Middle East is the world’s nuthouse, and it drives me crazy to read and write about it.

Experts insist Basher Assad encouraged ISIS to attack him in a very cynical game that resulted in ISIS swallowing whole the legitimate, non-jihadi opposition, thereby making his enemy the enemy of the west as well. I’ve seen comments poo pooing this from incredulous readers, but knowing what I know about dictatorships and about the Middle East, I believe it:

Assad is Laying a Deadly Trap in Syria

Attacking the Islamic State is Attacking Assad

Our invasion of Iraq was a colossal blunder of biblical proportions, and the jihadis learned much more from the debacle than we did:

What ISIS Learned from the US

A Tangled Nest of Snakes and Scorpions

There are no good guys in any of this, and they all hate us. The convoluted alliances further confound any understanding of what is going on. Kurdistan, a rare wellspring of goodwill toward the US, has allied with Iran to protect themselves. Qatar has broken with Saudi Arabia and UAE and is supporting ISIS. Why, I don’t know, but we cannot punish Qatar. It is the world’s #1 exporter of LNG, and it also hosts some very important US military command centers.

We need to stay out of this. Sure, drop some bombs, do some surveillance and pass along some intel if we must, but Middle Eastern nations need to throw their troops into that meat grinder. That shit-smeared hell-hole and its execrable inhabitants are not worth one more US cent or one more drop of American blood. It is a grotesque theater of bloody torture; a charnel house where ululating death cultists never tire of the stonings, beheadings, burnings, bombings and piles of dead bodies, all cheered on by the grubby populace.

Fence it off, stay away, and machinegun any jihadis who try to escape.

Close the Gates

Also, sorry legitimate refugees, but we need to cut off all immigration and visits from the world’s anal sphincter known as the Islamic world. We can’t sort the good from the bad, so bar them all. No Saudi Princes going to the hospital and enjoying shopping trips, no young men and women attending our universities, no refugees who, like the Boston bombers’ family feared for their lives so much that they repeatedly returned to the homeland we granted them refuge from. End it all, throw up a wall between Western Civilization and Muslim barbarity. Maybe this will make the good ones sort it out and snuff the poisonous snakes in their midst.

Even if we slam the gates, we still have a serious problem here in the west, where we are growing our own jihadis:

The Making of a Disaster

“American” Dies fighting for ISIS

According to NBC, an “American” named, oddly enough, Douglas MacArthur McCain has died fighting in Syria. As usual, they get it wrong. He was not an American. He was an anti-American jihadi POS whose death we should all celebrate. The US government knows of many others like him over there. They should all be tried in absentia, sentenced to death, stripped of their citizenship and then tracked down and smoked by drone, leaving nothing but a grease stain as an example to others. Any of them stupid enough to try and return should be seized at the border and unceremoniously executed.

It's Labor Day

I come from a long line of blue collar workers and was in the IBEW myself many years ago.  Just south of where I live is the site of the Ludlow Massacre

Stop for a moment on this day and think about the American labor movement and the sacrifices they made that got us where we are today.  If you're a union member or former member, or familyof a union member give them a shout out here this Labor Day.
