Thursday Motes, Friday Is Tomorrow

Age old morality question: If you found a wallet on the street, what would you do? There’s identification in the wallet so you know who it belongs to. What do you do?  Okay, the state deposits  $360,000 in your account what do you do? Well, if you’re a 24 y-o man in Japan that had a 4.63 million yen deposited, you cash it out and disappear. The funds were Covid relief funds for Abu, Yamaguchi prefecture. According to a report the man’s name was at the top of the town’s list of account information sent to the bank, which was confused by a formatting issue that led it to believe the money should be transferred to his account first and later distributed to the rest of the townspeople. Once he received the money, the man began to transfer the total sum out of his account in small daily increments to avoid detection. By the time the town authorities caught up with him on April 21, he told them the money was all gone, Asahi Shimbun reported. On May 12, the town filed a lawsuit against the man demanding repayment of the relief funds and any legal fees, SoraNews24 reported.  But he had vanished from his home by then, the outlet reported on Sunday. Town residents described the man as “a good boy, young and handsome,”. And now he’s rich, young, and handsome.

Time for a change: Rashida Harbi Tlaib is an American politician and lawyer serving as the U.S. representative for Michigan’s 13th congressional district since 2019. The district includes the western half of Detroit, along with several of its western suburbs and much of the Downriver area. (rep·re·sent /ˌreprəˈzent/ :be entitled or appointed to act or speak for (someone), especially in an official capacity.) Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib has said she introduced a resolution to recognize the Palestinian Nakba, a term used to describe the forced displacement of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians in the lead-up to the establishment of the state of Israel in 1948.  Can anyone tell me how this “resolution” benefits or “represents” the people of Detroit? Anyone?

This IS bad: A third of fish and chip shops could be at risk of closure due to food shortages caused by the Russian invasion of Ukraine, industry leaders have warned. The National Federation of Fish Friers (NFFF) has called on the Government to “act now” to prevent “long-term damage” to the popular takeaways. NFFF president Andrew Crook told Sky News many of his members think those in power “do not care” about the potential harm his sector faces. A Government spokesperson said it will “continue to speak with the industry body, the National Federation of Fish Friers, and other sector representatives about current pressures they face”. In other words, “We’re looking in to it.”

Wrong wrong wrong: Jussie Smollett is a free man. Alec Baldwin is a free man. Hunter Biden is a free man. Michael Byrd is a free man. There are Jan6 prisoners in the DC jail charged with trespassing and have been denied bail. Something is freakin’ wrong here.

Saw this picture of Johnny and June. It is just so powerful. So simple, a man and a woman.

They now sit together at the Table of heros.

Wednesday Motes, No Video

A good reason to vote for Trump: White House chief medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci said on Sunday that he would not serve in that capacity should Donald Trump regain the White House in 2024. When interviewed by Trump-hater Jim Acosta, he simply laughed and said, “well, no” when asked if he would work for the Don again.  One of the few constants in the pandemic has been the ubiquitous television appearances of Fauxci. Another constant was Fauxi flip-flopping and lying. He started lying almost immediately during the early days, claiming to know with certainty that Wuhan was a natural virus when in fact there was evidence that it was engineered. So, getting rid of this p o s is just another good reason to vote for Trump.

Wondering: Think there will ever be a “Porn Stars” Barbie and Ken set? You know, a “Ron Jeremy” Ken. Just wondering. (Can’t get the image out now. Can you?

Make up terms and use them: What the hell is an “enhanced magazine”? The msm is now describing the New York shooter was using “enhanced magazines” in his abhorrent act of murder. And they’ll sell it, and yell it, and make you think it somehow makes the weapon “more dangerous”. Then they’ll outlaw them, and nobody will ever define what it is. But you can’t have one anyway so “it” doesn’t matter.

A sad Good-Bye: Couple of weeks ago, Julie and I did enjoy watching the 2022 movie, “Saved By Ruby”, the story of an unlikely rescue dog becoming a police K-9 in Rhode Island. The real-life Ruby earned national recognition, even being named “Search and Rescue Dog of the Year, when in 2017 when she was instrumental in the rescue of young boy who happened to be the son of shelter worker Patricia Inman. It was Inman that assisted Daniel O’Neil in adopting Ruby out of the shelter, after she had been returned five times for being too “rambunctious. It was with sadness that I read Ruby has crossed over the Rainbow bridge after contracting a sudden, acute, and untreatable illness. Her heart and joyous spirit will be missed by all.

I’d say the later: Was it just coincidence Bette Midler played the hard partying Grandma in the “Adams Family 2”? Or just type casting?

Piers Morgan is an idiot: In his latest piece of “journalism”, Morgan attempted to equate the 2nd Amendment right to keep and bear arms with thew English game Cricket. Then he wonders why police didn’t do anything about the New York shooter before he went on his murderous rampage. First of all, the right of firearms was given up by the English, so they would be safer. How’s that working out for you? On the other idea; Hey Piers, you seem to forget little things like innocent until proven guilty, preponderance of evidence, and punish the guilty. Okay the cops knew the guy was stone azzed crazy troubled but unfortunately that is NOT against the law. (Or we’d be able to have you locked up.) So once again, you and your big brit mouth have no business telling us what Americans “should do”. Personally, I think the NY Post hired you, so the rest of the US msm would look good.

And an early prognostication: The New York shooter will never be executed, he will be deemed mentally unfit, as judged by all his writing and posting, and may even be sent to a “hospital”.

Tuesday Motes To Tune You Up

On a label of “harder” cider: “CRAFTED TO REMOVE GLUTEN. PRODUCT FERMENTED FROM GRAINS THAT CONTAIN GLUTEN AND CRAFTED TO REMOVE GLUTEN. THE GLUTEN CONTENT CANNOT BE VERIFIED AND THIS PRODUCT MAY CONTAIN GLUTEN. This might have been written by the Harris writing team. It’s freakin’ alcohol, it’s supposed to be bad for you. Get over it.

It really ain’t the same: Woke is really screwing up our civilization. Commenting on a man’s hair, or lack thereof, is now on parr with mentioning the size of a woman boobs. A panel of balding judges have ruled insulting a man for being bald in the workplace amounts to sex harassment in the UK. The case got started when a supervisor called a worker a “fat bald c—” and he was later fired from the West Yorkshire-based British Bung, which makes wooden cask plugs, according to the outlet. (Really? A “bung” maker.) “In our judgment, there is a connection between the word ‘bald’ on the one hand and the protected characteristic of sex on the other,” the tribunal said. “We find it to be inherently related to sex.”  The finding also declared that criticizing worker for his hairless head was “degrading” and “humiliating.” Along with upholding of the sex harassment claim, the tribunal ruled the company had dismissed him unfairly after 24 years on the job. (24 years? Making bungs? O M G) Financial compensation will be determined at a later date.

On whites can be racists: Payton Gendron will become the new face of white supremacy and racial hate. And deserves it. How many people remember Frank James of New York? Or Darrell Brooks of Waukesha? They don’t fit the narrative, but are just as evil. Gendron posted his “manifesto” on line, and defined himself politically as a “left authoritarian”, but he is being described as “a right-wing supremacist”. One fits the narrative and that is the one that will be shouted from the roof tops. (The hell with the truth. You can’t handle the truth.)

They’re after you, he’s just in the way: Headline: “Prosecutors pursue an inquiry into Trumps handling of classified material”. (But not Shilary’s)

Meanwhile, Muslims are being persecuted, due to “islamophobia”:   Last Friday, a Muslim mob beat and burned to death a female Christian student in Nigeria. She was apparently accused of “blasphemy.” A brief video clip shows a massive fire against a wall, where the hapless woman was likely driven and cornered, and Muslims jumping around it and crying “Allahu Akbar.” This is the same “religion of peace” that two days earlier “hacked” 29 other Christians to death. This incident occurred on the grounds of the Shehu Shagari College of Education. The college announced it is now closed. The Religion of Peace.

Happy Birthday Danny Trejo. A man who turned his life around and from what I gather gives a great deal back. He does a lot with disadvantaged youths, trying to keep them from making his mistakes. Good job Danny.

Show off: A Florida Woman suspected of drunk driving performed “multiple ballet and Irish folk dance moves” while undergoing field sobriety tests after rear-ending a vehicle late last Wednesday evening. The driver smelled of alcohol, had “slurred speech,” and “was unsteady on her feet,” police charge. When asked to perform one-leg stand and walk-and-turn tests, the driver instead broke out her cross-disciplinary dance moves, according to an arrest affidavit. The driver refused to take a breath test, was charged with a pair of misdemeanors and booked into the county jail (from which she was released on $650 bond). A date has not been set for the roadside ballerina to appear for arraignment and enter a plié.

Weekend: playlist included Bobby Bare, Lori Moran, Dan Seals, Crystal Gayle, Jerry Jeff Walker, and Jay and the Americans. Kinda an old timey mood, I guess. Shot some arrows, rode the bike, and mowed the weeds. All in total, a really good weekend.

Monday Power Point Motes

Courage Story for Monday: One of my “life rules” is “Never Give Up.” Never. A Grandmother in a Sioux City wine store showed how strong that can be, when a “man” 35, and a “woman”, 20, (please notice the age difference) attempted to rob her store. I put “man” and “woman” in quotes because they frown on me calling them animals, because only animals would beat a elderly grandmother so badly she suffered a fractured eye socket, a broken collar bone, rip her hair out leaving open bloody wounds, choke her unconscious, and repeatedly threaten to rape and stab her. The victim convinced the attackers to look for security tapes in another room, dragged herself across the floor, and then managed to fight off both her attackers using a wooden stool and an aluminum chair. She fought both of them. When the police arrived, the suspects fled to the rear of the building, and it took 3 taser shots to subdue the male. The victim says she remembers the only thing she thought of, “Not today. I’m not dying today.”  She Never Gave Up.

It’s getting worse: White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre laughed when asked who’s “running point” on the baby formula shortage. Baby formula is out of stock in stores across the United States. In some states, there is as little as 40% of the usual stock. When asked, the WH spox does her very best Kamala impression. Sleepy Joe has pushed the $40+ b dollar “loan” to Ukraine. If one U.S. child dies of malnutrition due to this shortage, Sleepy Joe should be taken out of office, out into a field, and made to kneel in front of the child’s family and answer to them, why. In public. With news coverage.

This makes how many: Another Clinton advisor is dead. Mark Middleton, Bill Clinton’s special advisor from Little Rock, Arkansas who connected the former president to deceased pedophile Jeffrey Epstein has died at the age of 59 on Saturday. Local law enforcement and the county coroner stated that they were not investigating the death and did not respond to it. Clearly another case of Clinta-cide.

Not pretty history: U.S. is acknowledging the large-scale and violent treatment of Indigenous students at more than 400 Indian boarding schools run by the federal government between 1819 and 1969. (1969?) Over 500 American Indian, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian children’s deaths occurred at 19 of the federal Indian boarding schools, according to the report. In total, 53 marked and unmarked burial sites were identified at these school facilities nationwide. The Interior Department report identified 408 federally run schools in 37 states. Oklahoma had the highest number of schools, with 76, followed by 44 in Arizona, 43 in New Mexico and 30 in South Dakota. These boarding schools also instructed non-Indians, including emancipated Black people known as “Freedmen,”  By now, the only real source of true stories of these “schools”, will the journals and verbal history’s left behind by those attendee’s. This is going to get even uglier.

How far is too far: It’s bad enough when someone doesn’t have a place to live, or enough food for their family, but our neighbor to the north, Canada, has come up with what can only be called an “EVIL” solution. As of last year, the Canadian government is now offering to pay to euthanize people who are “too poor to continue living with dignity.” Anyone who feels as so, the tyrannical state would like to foot the bill for their suicide. That means, if you don’t get it, the Canadian government with help you kill yourself. In 2021, the Canadian parliament enacted Bill C-7, which greatly expanded the valid reasons for medically assisted suicide. Coined as a “sweeping euthanasia law,” the bill removed most restrictions and made it possible for Canadians to legally be euthanized based on their living situation. So, if you think you’re too poor, the State with help you kill yourself. Saayyy Whhhaaattt?

A sad Good-Bye: Randy Weaver, 74. On Aug. 21, 1992, a team of U.S. marshals scouting the forest to find suitable places to ambush and arrest Weaver came across his friend, Kevin Harris, and Weaver’s 14-year-old son Samuel in the woods. A gunfight broke out. Samuel Weaver, his dog, and Deputy U.S. Marshal William Degan were killed. The next day, an FBI sniper shot Randy Weaver. As Weaver, Harris and Sara ran back toward the house, the sniper fired a second bullet, which passed through Vicki Weaver’s head as she held an infant and wounded Harris in the chest. So, in attempts to “arrest” Randy, the government managed to kill his son, his dog, his wife wound a friend, and get a U.S. Marshal killed. Harris and Randy Weaver were arrested, and Weaver’s three daughters went to live with their mother’s family in Iowa. Randy Weaver was acquitted of the most serious charges and Harris was acquitted of all charges. Was he a hero or a villain? He stood for his rights, just wanted to be left alone, and the government response was way over the top. Rest In Peace Randy.

(Sorry, I really don’t have a power point for today.)

Sunday Rant – D T I

From 5 Feb 2014. As appropriate today, maybe even more so.


Our Country!  This, from a friend who is here as a resident alien:

“I’ve lived in your country for a number of years, and I love it as much as  my own.  Why any reasonable person could even imagine that I would be somehow ‘offended’ by Americans celebrating their own history and culture is far beyond my ability to understand.  Sounds as if the only ones that school administrator cares about are illegal immigrants!

Here, it is permissible to celebrate, virtually without limit, the heritage  of various and sundry immigrant and ethnic populations, complete with their flags, literature, and cuisine.  No one ever voices the slightest objection!

But, when the very country that made ‘liberty’ a word with real meaning, that made personal and economic freedom a reality, the country that represents hope for untold millions, citizens of that country may never celebrate their own history, may never even waive their own flag, because those falsely calling  themselves ‘progressives’ insist someone, somewhere might be offended.’

So what!  It makes we wonder where it is written that anyone has the “right” never to be offended.

In this dangerous, hopeless world, where spokesmen from national hell-holes, where even today abject slavery thrives and expands, spokesmen who would be immediately herded into gulags in most places in the world, here speak freely with no fear of persecution.

It is only the good and decent, the productive and moral, who are routinely  shouted-down by radical leftists. In Communist countries, there were ‘useful idiots,’ who naively brought the Communists to power and were quickly thereafter all lined-up and shot!

These kinds of people think it’s okay to make people fearful of celebrating their own culture and heritage.  These are the same people who think it is okay for the government to forcibly disarm citizens, under the false guise of ‘safety.’  They foolishly refuse to see that through their efforts to establish ‘utopia,’ they will be among the first to be herded into gas-chambers.

It won’t be the first time it’s happened!”

Comment: “When the bus is going over a cliff, it really doesn’t matter if you’re sitting in the front or in the back!/ John Vorhaus

“In times of disorder, fanatics play a prominent role.  In times of  peace, it is critics.  Both are shot the day after the Revolution!/ Edmund Wilson

“The Final Struggle will be between Communists and ex-Communists”. Silone


I agree with Mr. Wilson. I smile at all the silver-spoon liberals, who seem to have never read a history book, espousing the Great Struggle, while convincing themselves they will be the important ones. The ones with the bumper-sticker platitudes, who just don’t realize they will be in the first line, next to the long ditch. Can’t be having that discent you know.

Saturday Story – Good-night Mr. Pink

Let’s face it; if these stories do nothing else, you have to admit I’m a bit off center.

The weekend Julie and I were in Vegas for the Radio Music Awards, and my chance at a million dollars, we had that first night all to ourselves.

The distances between casinos in Las Vegas are deceiving. They are really much further apart than it looks. We found our way onto the strip, from the Aladdin and headed for the lights of town. And after 30 to 40 minutes walking, we started getting tired. But we persevered.

We got to Boardwalk, New York New York, The Excalibur, and of course The Flamingo. We did the usual tourist thing watching the people and weirds and gazing in awe at the Casinos themselves. We had a ball.

Finally, about 1:30 in the morning, actually the next day, we decided we were hungry and stopped at a little dinner on the strip. We both wanted something more than a sandwich and this place appeared clean and the menu looked pretty good so we went on inside.

We received a warm welcome from the waitress who sat us at a window table next to a big corner booth. We ordered our meals and just started to relax when a large group of young people sat down in the corner booth. I say young; they were all in their mid to late 20’s and obviously students.

Julie and I were just sitting, talking quietly, and finishing our dinner when the students began a discussion on Tarantino’s “Reservoir Dogs”. There was a divide among the group of 5 men and 3 women. Three of the men and two of the women were of the opinion “Dogs” was the greatest heist movie ever filmed, and the others didn’t.

The discussion was spirited and really quite well thought out on both sides. The arguments were clear and the points brought up were absolutely relevant to the topic and conversation. I listened as it was not hard to hear as we were the only two groups in the place. But these folks knew that movie line by line. Even the ones that didn’t think it was great.

Julie and I finished and decided to take a cab back to the Aladdin so when I paid the waitress I asked if she could call us a cab to which she replied it was no problem as they had several cabs that would come right away.

The “Dogs” conversation hit one of those momentary pauses that occur, just as Julie and I stood up. I turned to the group, stuck out my hand to one of the movies defenders and very softly said; “Good Might Mister Black” and we shook hands as he looked at me with a questioning look.  I turned to one of the young ladies and said, in the same soft voice; “Good Night Miss White” and we too shook hands, only now she seemed to start to pick up on the joke and reference.

 I then turned to the leader of the Anti’Dogs group, again put out my hand, and said in that quiet voice; “Good Night Mister Pink” and we shook hands and it was just about then everyone got the joke and the reference to the movie. 

Miss White and Mister Black were laughing out loud and Mister Pink jumped right in with a line from the movie, “Hey, why am I Mister Pink?”  So I responded with the movies next line, “Because you’re a faggot” and the entire table collapsed into unrestrained laughter. I shook everyone’s hand, introduced Julie and myself, apologized to Mister Pink for the “faggot” comment and they all said “no, no, no man. It’s part of the movie”. And everyone collapsed again with laughter.

As Julie and I walked out to the waiting cab, I heard the leader of the pro-dogs tell everyone else, “See I told you it’s the greatest movie ever made. They’ve even seen it in Hawaii”.

I resisted the urge to respond. Hell, one great set up a night is enough. 

Fri-fri-friday M-m-motes

KARMA: The Edgefield County (SC) Sheriff says evidence shows Joseph McKinnon strangled Patricia Dent inside the home and was burying her in the backyard, when he died of a heart attack. They say they discovered Joseph McKinnon’s body first, before finding Dent’s body in a backyard pit. On Monday, autopsies were performed on both bodies, and the cause of death for Mr. McKinnon was confirmed to be a cardiac event. Ms. Dent was found to have died by strangulation. Too bad we can’t list karma as cause of death. It would seem appropriate.

Just words: Duke University is looking into concerns that a student commencement speaker may have plagiarized parts of her speech. Priya Parkash is the Duke student who gave the speech on Sunday. According to the Duke Chronicle, several elements of the speech echo a former speech given at Harvard University in 2014 by then student Sarah Abushaar. My first thought; Who has so much time that they compare commencement speeches? And why? And does it really matter?

Priorities: Incensed by the “senseless upcharge” at Starbucks for nondairy milk, actor James Cromwell and other members of PETA, where he serves as an honorary director, staged a protest Tuesday at a Midtown Manhattan location. If anyone wanted him to leave, they were out of luck as he — along with another protester — superglued his hand to the counter in what can best be described as a “glue-in.” The 6-7 Oscar nominated (aren’t they all) actor led the “crowd” in a rousing chorus of “Save the planet, save the cows. Stop this vegan upcharge now.” I’m really glad Cromwell can do this because the rest of us have to work and make a living and don’t have time for this “problem”.

Do you know who my dad is: Hunter Biden is trying to settle the Justice Department’s probe into potential tax fraud, money laundering, and violation of lobbying laws, the New York Times reported Tuesday. Last I heard, two out three of these are criminal charges. In the coming months, the department is expected to make a final decision about whether to bring criminal or civil charges, or to reach some sort of settlement that could include a significant fine. How do you “settle” a criminal charge? “Significant” fine? In other words, is the DoJ getting paid off.

They make the rules: White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Tuesday that the Biden administration encourages “peaceful” protests outside the homes of Supreme Court justices. These protests are virtually unprecedented as a way to pressure the highest court — both directly and personally. Psaki said; ”We certainly continue to encourage that outside of judges’ homes, and that’s the president’s position.” Just like the border and the U.S. immigration laws, the WH has decided to ignore another federal law. Specifically, Title 18 of the U.S. Code, section 1507 that specifically makes protests outside the private residence of a federal judge a federal crime. They make the rules, and only obey the ones they want.

Fish wrapper supreme headline: “DEAD END”; ‘Dead’ woman ‘died of heart attack from shock of waking up at her own funeral’.” They don’t get much better than that.

In Hilo this weekend. Gonna listen to some country music, drink some Wisconsin beer, and mow some damn hawaiian weeds. Stay safe.

Thursday Motes, Because I Said So

Scary: Uncle Joe is creating a domestic army within the government. Non-profit OpentheBooks released a comprehensive oversight report earlier this year titled “The Militarization of The U.S. Executive Agencies”.  The report estimated “that there are now more federal officers with firearm authority (200,000+) than U.S. Marines (186,000). “We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set.  We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.” Obama said on July 2, 2008. It’s the fulfillment of Obama’s well-funded prophecy. The administrations have stockpiled an arsenal of high-powered weapons in the Executive Branch based on the vision of a civilian national security force.  The stockpile can outfit an army.  The current regime controls the trigger to the arsenal. These are not LEO’s, these will be “true believer soldiers” doing the party’s bidding.

Why nobody watches: MSNBC guest Laurie Kilmartin had the network’s hosts cracking up when she announced that she wants to “make sweet love” to the person who leaked the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade opinion — “and joyfully abort our fetus.” And I want to puke.

Must be nice: A big-shot Hollywood lawyer reportedly paid off Hunter Biden’s delinquent taxes, which a source says amounted to more than $2 million, as the notoriously troubled son awaits the results of a Delaware grand jury’s investigation into his personal finances. Kevin Morris, an entertainment attorney and novelist whom Hunter Biden’s friends call his latest “sugar brother,” has also been funding the 52-year-old’s lifestyle in Los Angeles, including his rent and living expenses, the source said. The attorney has also been advising the president’s son on how to structure his “art sales”, according to a source. Now, ya gotta ask, WHY?

It’s about time: According to a press release issued today by NRA board member (and Kansas judge) Phil Journey, retired Army Lt. Col. Allen West has “answered the call” of those who say the NRA is in dire need of internal reforms and will stand for election as executive vice-president of the National Rifle Association, challenging the 30-year reign of LaPierre, who has been EVP and CEO of the gun rights group since 1991. West’s potential challenge to the current NRA leadership has been rumored for several days now, but this would seem to make it official. If I weren’t a life member, I wouldn’t have anything to do with the current “leadership”. And those quotes are on purpose.

You never know: Watching Guttfeld last night, one of the “guests” was Skunk Baxter. Jeffrey Allen “Skunk” Baxter is an American guitarist, known for his stints in the rock bands Steely Dan and The Doobie Brothers during the 1970s and Spirit in the 1980s. More recently, he has worked as a defense consultant and advised U.S. members of Congress on missile defense. Baxter fell into his second profession almost by accident. In the mid-1980s, his interest in music recording technology led him to wonder about hardware and software originally developed for military use, specifically data compression algorithm and large-capacity storage devices. On the show, he was funny, made intelligent comments, and was extremely articulate. Wow, you just never know.

Opinion: I’m hearing the talking heads whine and moan about the “Rowe” opinion, which hasn’t been formally announced, and how the left is protesting against the SCOTUS, by holding “protests” fronting the Justice’s homes. I say it’s time for the right, conservatives, to start doing the same thing to our left leaning politicians. We cannot just sit and whine, it hasn’t done any good. We need to start using “their” rules and tactics. Being the “better” person isn’t doing a damn bit of good. Use their rules against them.

Ho Hum, Wednesday Motes

A thought: What if the space aliens could only watch “Leave It To Beaver”, “Ozzy and Harriet”, and “Happy Days”. Then they land here. Oh boy.

Lying demorats make up the cutest “facts”: “Millions of women are figuring out how to get out of this country for good,” Roseanna Arquette later deleted the tweet, but her pro-abortion activism continued.// Legal analyst (?) Sunny Hostin said Tuesday that comedian Dave Chappelle getting attacked on stage  was in part due to former President Donald Trump unleashing “incivility.”// Uncle Joe warns that Republicans might pass a law preventing “LGTBQ children” from attending public school with other children.// Rep. Susan Wild (D-PA) saying “all of our constitutional rights are at stake” and claiming that a ban on interracial marriage may be next.

Vacations can kill you: Three Americans died of unknown causes Friday at a Sandals resort on the Bahamas’ Great Exuma island, and police are investigating, officials said. Bahamian Acting Prime Minister Chester Cooper “advised that foul play is not suspected.” No signs of trauma were found on the bodies, the Royal Bahamas Police Force said in a statement. This sounded sort of familiar, so I looked back and found in April 2018, a family of four was found dead in a rental condo in the luxury Tao Mexico vacation community near Akumal, on the east coast of the Yucatan Peninsula just north of Tulum. “Foul play was not suspected”. Investigation into that showed a faulty propane water heater was the source of gas poisoning. Let’s see where this was goes.  

To serve and steal: A retired sheriff’s deputy posed as a guest at two Phoenix-area weddings to steal boxes of cards containing thousands of dollars and is under investigation in a series of similar crimes, authorities said Friday. According to police, the two stolen boxes of wedding cards each contained between $3,000 and $6,000. During their investigation of the two Chandler thefts, police learned of at least seven similar crimes in other Phoenix-area jurisdictions, said a Chandler police spokesman. The suspect was also booked on several drug possession and drug paraphernalia offenses because he had amphetamine and fentanyl on him when he was arrested, police said.

A waste of time: A Canadian space law amendment allowing for the prosecution of crimes committed on the Moon passed Canada’s House of Commons at the end of April, Euronews reported. The legislation would extend Canada’s criminal jurisdiction into outer space. Now let’s see them enforce it.

The best politician money can buy: Crazy Mazie says “As far as I’m concerned, anybody in this country who cares about our civil rights and our constitutional rights should be very, very concerned about this draft opinion,” (U.S. Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii. Hey Mazie, 1) It was a “draft”, no authority or power what-so-ever. B) The Constitution never says anything about “abortion”, it’s not a constitutional right. B.2) There are no “civil rights” involved, at all. IV) Please STFDASTFU.

A sad Good-Bye: Mickey Gilley, the country music star whose Texas nightclub “Gilley’s” served as the inspiration for the 1980 film Urban Cowboy, died on Saturday in Branson, Mo. “Gilley was 86 and had just come off of the road, his favorite place, having played ten shows in April,” according to spokesman Zach Farnum. “He passed peacefully with his family and close friends by his side.” “Urban Cowboy” was trend setting moment and movement in the 80’s. Suddenly everybody wanted to be a “cowboy”. His talent and voice will be missed.

At Last, Tuesday Motes

This blog has NOT been cleared by the Ministry of Truth

It’s nice there are some things you can always count on: Like Geraldo Rivera, born Gerald Riviera, insulting someone he “debates” with, especially when they are trying to make a point he doesn’t agree with.  Rivers named three Supreme Court Justice’s and called them frauds and claimed, “they lied”. When broadcaster Greg Guttfeld called him on it, he labels the facts “baloney”, calls Guttfeld “arrogant” and then calls him an “insulting punk”. As he always does, if Rivera can’t answer the facts, he attacks the person. Hey Gerry, two things you should drop from your bio. You are not a “Republican” and you sure ain’t a “journalist”.

The what? : US Attorney General Merrick Garland on Thursday unveiled a new “Office of Environmental Justice” to advance Joe Biden’s climate agenda. Garland’s announcement comes as Uncle Joe’s climate “advisor” Gina McCarthy recently bragged to her lunatic supporters at Tufts University about how the regime is going to force the airlines to follow their new green-style rules. McCarthy told supporters this week, “We’re actually going to do 100 rules this year alone on appliances… Sustainable airlines. Who’d a thunk that they’d be all in but they better be or they’re gonna be out of here.” What the hell is “environmental justice”? Sounds more like the department of “egocentric environmental extortion”. And this is from the “department of justice”? Not seeing any.

Question: Is Johnny Depp and Amber Heard calling each other obscene names and crying on demand more important than the “2000 Mules”? Guess so.

Merc’s in Africa, again: Forces identified by witnesses as Russian have “summarily executed, tortured, and beaten civilians” in the Central African Republic (CAR) since 2019. The report — which is based on interviews with 40 people, including 10 victims of violence and 15 witnesses — details abuses that were allegedly committed by men “with white skin speaking Russian” who wore “beige khaki clothes” and used military-grade weapons. The fingers are pointing at the Wagner Group,” which is a private military security contractor with ties to the Russian government”. The group is thought to be connected to — and financed by — Yevgeny Prigozhin, an oligarch so close to the Kremlin that he is known as Russian President Vladimir Putin’s “chef.” The Kremlin has repeatedly denied any links to the group. Prigozhin also denies any connection to Wagner. Mercenary’s (merc’s) in Africa have been bad news since the 60’s. The Simba’s, Mau Mau, Mad Mike Hoare , Bob Denard and Jean Schramme were known world wide back then. The other night TMC showed one of the more controversial movies of that time. “Dark of The Sun” also known as the “Last Train From Katanga” stared Rod Taylor, Yvette Mimieux, and Jim Brown. The U.N. has very strict rules about mercenary involvement in conflicts, but I guess the new designation is “military contractor” and a way around the rules.

She’s earned out best: Let’s give a big “hooray” for 18-year-old Georgia resident Bryn Hammock, who refined her sewing skills during the pandemic, spearheaded an effort to produce 140 weighted gloves, which she calls “Tiny Hugs,” to comfort infants in the newborn intensive care units (NICU) at her local hospitals. It all began when Hammock learned that parents could only spend two hours daily with their newborns in NICUs under pandemic restrictions. She then heard of bead-filled gloves meant to comfort newborns from her grandmother, Deanna Simmons, who happens to be a pediatric nurse. Hammock created her first batch of “Tiny Hugs” and, with the help of her mother, Kelley Hammock, produced an instruction video on how to make them while also fashioning a team of 18 volunteers. The group set out to make 30 “Tiny Hugs,” but when all was said and done, they manufactured 140. Hammock, a girl scout, also had her eyes set on the Gold Award, the highest honor the Girl Scouts of America has for ambassadors and senior girl scouts. As far as I’m concerned, she earned it. Way to go.

Yes, times are tough: You know times are bad when a semi-celeb’s mom launches a go-fund-me to pay for the daughters civil court loss against another semi-celeb. WTF is this world coming to?

Sad news: Leave It to Beaver actor Tony Dow announced Thursday that he has been diagnosed with cancer.The L.A. native, 77, and his wife of 41 years, Lauren, said they were heartbroken over the diagnosis, and were thankful of prayers from fans, in advance. Dow played the role of Wally Cleaver on Leave It to Beaver in all 234 episodes of the show from 1957 to 1963 alongside Jerry Mathers, and late stars Hugh Beaumont, Barbara Billingsley and Ken Osmond. “Beaver” was one of the most timeless shows ever produced. My prayers and thoughts are with him.
