Saturday Morning Weird News Dump

sat weird meme.jpg

Happy Saturday Morons. Hard to believe its Saturday again. Let's delve into some news stories that didn't get much attention here at the AoSHQ. Fake news? Who knows? You decide.


There is your weird news fix for the week. Feel free to discuss these or anything else you want to in this open thread. There are 2 rules, no running with sharp objects and play nice with one another. Thursday's ONT can be revisited.

Have a great weekend!!!

@realDonaldTrump
































Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my "wires tapped" in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!

2 Sorry for the crappy formatting above.
Obama got a FISA wiretapping warrant to tap Trump Tower in October.

3 The debt limit is coming March 15. Trump should use the current "rebellion" in the government as a pretext to shutting down parts of it.

7 A FISA warrant to tap Trump's phone - must have suspected him of being an Islamic terrorist. Although Barron could have been the real suspect.

yeah, just a couple rogue agents in Cinci turned out to go right to the White House, 100's of tea party groups were indeed targeted, yet Lerner retire comfortably on six figures. (and Sen Durbin won when Lerner with FEC (?) held an investigation over his opponent's head, he said Lerner even told him it would be dropped if he agreed not to run, he later won the frivolous case)

Holder lied about actually running guns to cartels and not bothering to track them .. two years later he submits an amended report ... held in contempt yet no real penalty.

They are so desperate on the Russia stuff perhaps because that was the grounds for the FISA limited wire tap, and they are pushing the narrative that Trump is guilty. but if Trump can get his own people in, the real FBI may start to put the real culprits through the meat grinder. They went after the king, but they did not kill him (yet)

90 Police arrested the former manager of Sen. John McCain's Pueblo presidential campaign office Wednesday on charges he sexually assaulted a 5-year-old boy left in his care so the boy's mother could attend a rally for McCain's running mate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, The Denver Post's Howard Pankratz reported Thursday afternoon.

It's the second arrest on charges of sexual assault on a child by a person in position of trust in a week for Jeffrey Claude Bartleson, 52, who has faced similar allegations at least five times since 1982 without being convicted of a crime, according to the Pueblo Chieftain's Nick Bonham.

Two detectives have been assigned full-time to the investigation and are looking into allegations Bartleson lured victims through church groups, his work as a sponsor at a hospital drug rehab unit, and during involvement in political work.

Bartleson listed his occupation as "political consultant" at the Pueblo County Jail, the Chieftain reported, but state Republican groups were quick to distance themselves from him. Bartleson indeed ran the McCain office in Pueblo and directed the Republican nominee's southern Colorado campaign, the chairman of the Pueblo County Republican Party told Pankratz, but doesn't hold an official party position and had only attended a few GOP meetings. The state Republican Party told Pankratz they had had "no contact" with Bartleson.

In an arrest affidavit, one alleged victim said Bartleson was "wearing clothes the same as John McCain," the Chieftain reported.

91 McCarthy article was good, as someone linked to here
he points out that he may change his view on breaking down "the wall" because it can be used to Trump up a national security issue with no evidence, as it seems Obama did.

The question becomes how far they taps went ... Trump was not named, and Trump states in this morning tweet "Nothing found". But Obama approved the spreading of the wiretaps so it could (illegally, yet Obama changed rules to help hide the crime, indicating Obama's intent?) be leaked to MFM to spread doubt and ask probing questions with advantage of wiretapped private conversations.

Trump is NOT BEING STRONG ENOUGH on the wiretapping.

He either needs to get his ass out of Mar Lago and /or have the heads of the FBI, NSA, DOJ, etc etc etc to Florida right now or he needs to be back in DC declaring open, relentless war against the saborteurs.

Putting this stuff on Twitter is WEAK. So weak that methinks Trump may be lying...our exaggerating at a minimum.

IF he called all the heads of the appropriate agencies to the White House and laid out what he thinks happened and what he wants done THEN I 'd believe it.

95 PDT's tweet was just the beginning. If Hillary had won (like they thought) it would be nothing, but since Trump won, this will be a big deal. Trump and Sessions will know what to do about it and because of the Democrat trickery and prickery, it will be no holds barred. This one is one for the history books. IMHO.

He might expand to doing You-Tube 3-5 minute segments on different topics. One by the lawyer McCarthy on the wiretap thing would be good. He can even link them right from the tweet. Same with global warming, open borders, etc.

He doesn't have to FORCE the media to stop spinning/lying. He can bypass the liars and communicate directly. New media made the old corrupt media obsolete, and Trump has properly branded them as a leftist propaganda machine.

True, but that is true of meat/poultry/fish as well. I've heard as much as 90% of the calories in corn (for example) are lost in running it through the cow to get beef.

Maybe cockroaches convert the calories more efficiently into protein, but whether they can reconstitute cockroach mash into a good steak is another problem.

The russkies were clueless about cooking, so their wives would boil and make up a ton of these mini-monstrosities, freeze them in tupperware containers, which the Sovs would then scrape off a layer from the permafrost and then either fry or boil them for a meal. ugh. So i have eaten thousands of these Siberian gut-bombs.

That is a good piece.

Maybe back in the days when McCarthy was there, but not in the Obama years.

McCarthy needs to publicly flagellate himself three times and then put his brain to work figuring out how to fix the process so that we have a Fourth Amendment again and our politicians are not at the mercy of government spook blackmailers.

Trump's releasing this on Twitter is brilliant.

He is talking to his voters and his base. Tunnelling through the media filters, denying them a "scoop" and the ability to twist anything.

He is putting out public statements of fact with his actual unfiltered opinions and that of his staff.

But hey 'Cold Civil War'

If you like the MSM version you can always flip on MSNBC or CNN.

Or you could peruse that fine, well written piece in WaPo yesterday. They called Trump 'Hitler' but hey. At least they didn't do it on Twitter? Right?

It's interesting to me that someone with the handle 'Cold Civil War' claiming 'highest level corruption investigations' has no apparent awareness of the situation on the battlefield.

What would you have Trump do? The POTUS requested a wiretap. They followed the process and Obama got his wiretap.

What would you charge the heads of the agencies with? You think they didn't dot every legal i and cross every t ?

Trump can't even get the traitorous judges in half the districts to enforce the law. They publicly challenge his authority at every turn.

This Deep State situation has developed over 50 years at least, since FDR. Obama has had 8 years to plant his political terrorists. There are no quick solutions.

Trump knows this and is playing the long game. This is not simply about Trump winning. This is about America winning.

The way I look at it, whenever their was a vote the American people overwhelmingly defined marriage as man and woman. The supreme court gave not f_ck #one what we thought. Obama trying to exert his perception of marriage and morality on the Russians was just as stupid as thinking we could take three different islamic sects in Iraq and build a nation out of them - in short order.

The Russian people let their leaders know what they thought of ghey adoption in light of the abuse in the USA. So in a democratic process the Russian government and Putin ended it.

In first paragraph the will of the people was subverted, while second paragraph the will of the people was upheld.

If anything, we're all melding into our own versions of fascism. Soft fascism (like Obama giving away hundreds of billions of dollars to favored entities who perpetually suck off the federal teet), or hard fascism, where Russian oligarchs use organized crime tactics to maintain market control, with the approval of government.

I think Fascism is now the leading political/economic system in the world. Even China, which still features all the symbols and trappings of Communism, is Fascist. The People's Liberation Army owns and operates businesses.

How often do we hear the phrase "public/private partnership"? That is virtually the essence of Fascism.

353 Trump's 20M twitter folks are mostly on the right, and reaching them helps. But the MFM as a whole still has more power by far. They do usually have to cover his more pointed tweets, but mostly to discredit and spin them. And their PC Religion has many faithful that won't leave their "tribe" easily.

Even some of my Republican FB friends of old, professionals, still tend to swallow every HuffPo post and have hate for Trump, even if they voted for him.

The social media discussions have to reach those that will never directly read a Trump tweet. It will be a long battle, but the MFM lies are getting very blatant. Hillary getting $145M from Russians for uranium and her putting top secret info routinely through her server, versus no evidence of Trump ties to Russia.

Trump now has the keys to the death star, and targeting of prime criminals is under way (as opposed to Obama/Hilda targeting honest tea party types).

I was having a conversation with someone the other day, we were talking about Vietnam. Looking back on it, what were they? When we were fighting against them, does anybody really know?

It's one of the great mysteries. The proponents of Ho Chi Min say he was just a nationalist, who wanted his country to be left alone (or something like that), while the American perspective is he was a satellite commie stooge.

Which is it? I really don't think we know. Although Vietnam today is more closely a fascist system today than anything else... and if it must be said, a much more benign version that most other places in the world.

378 So here's the thing about that Brown Streak funding:

It's $647M to electrify Caltrain, which is a commute train that runs from SF to San Jose.

It really has nothing to do with the Brown Streak directly, but it's part of the infrastructure it'd eventually use.

Over half a billion dollars to put wires over rails that already exist.

I use Caltrain. It's actually great for getting back and forth to the shop that I use for some of the tire and suspension work on my cars. Drop off car, jog to Caltrain, read aos on the train, jog home.

And it'd work better if electrified. But is this really something that should be stirred into the Federal tax soup? No.

If we want it we should pay for it, and this state approves bonds like they're fucking cocaine. It's ridiculous what the voters of this state will inhale.

399 "Obama Tapped the Tower" put dems back on defense where they belong.

"but we had FISA approval" ... puts Dems on the path to explaining why they kept surveilling after finding nothing, did they have real cause? What the public will understand is they had paper thin cause in the first place, yet now those very private transcripts (of innocence) are spread around Obama's administration via last minute change of rule on spreading such intel, and that has been handed to the "enemy" NY Times.

This is (potentially) far worse than Watergate, but details of whether they had enough alibi built in to avoid prison is another question.

Hillary complains about Podesta being hacked by Russians (still unknown, since he gave away his password, so not very sophisticated) and she blindly blames Trump. But it was Obama tapping the Trump campaign directly, then helping hide his spies that would pass the transcripts to NY Times for a smear campaign.

I think Trump has known this for a couple weeks at least, but is careful on when to reveal any details. Cockroaches are scurrying for cover as lights go on.

405 Fascism is a form of socialism. Its development was in reaction to the violence of the anarcho-socialist movements in Europe and the US in the late 1800's and early 1900's.
It was an attempt to be the "middle path" between the unbridled capitalism and violent socialism. I like to refer to the movie World War Z where the solution was to make everyone 'sort of infected' to make the violent mindless beasts ignore the now mostly healthy

The thing I find more interesting is that we have collectively, as a nation, decided not to look back at it. I'm sure that's the way many Germans respond to Hilter and the Nazis, that trying to sort it all out is too much. Probably exponentially worse for the Germans, really.

Still, it may not matter. A century from now, when it's not so raw, a more thorough examination of, well, pretty much ALL of the 20th century may yield some interesting information that we were not capable of understanding.

Not that we'll be around to find out, and I suspect it's going to depend on all of us who lived through it to be dead and buried.

414 Apropos of nothing

I do not think I can become Eastern Orthodox. They have to give up meat products and dairy and fish with a backbone for the entirety of Lent, not just on Ash Wednesday and the Fridays of Lent, so unless I want to eat shellfish for all of Lent I 'd be in trouble. And they fast at other times too. This must be why in an Orthodox Church you do not see many heavy women-or at least in this church. They're fasting at other times too. However, the services are very lovely and it is conservative theologically and socially.

440 So, a pertinent question for the horde. I applied for a position, contingent on contract approval. After the initial machine generated message, there was no further interaction. Then in late January, the company did reach out, thanking me for my submission but they were not awarded the contract.

This week I was at the VA for bloodwork when I met a guy wearing a logo shirt for the job (different company) I applied for. So I engaged him in conversation, and he gave me a business card for a Human Relations agent with this company, a handwritten phone number for his supervisor. I went to the company page, 2 positions remain, so I submitted my resume and filled the application form.

Should I send an email directly to the company HR Rep with my resume? Should I contact the supervisor to inquire and network myself?

Then the ROEs would not have been so restrictive in regards to attacking SA-2 sites or telling pilots that no they can't bomb the USSR and PRC cargo ships in Haiphong who were shooting at them.

Over 400 F-105 Thunderchiefs were lost over the skies of North Vietnam. Or almost half the total production run. Thus sending men like Leo Thorsness to the Hanoi Hilton or others to Arlington. In the 66-67 time frame, the chances of a Thud pilot making it to one hundred missions was abysmal.

490 Yeah, I'm pretty sure that's how it works. Because you "enjoyed" the benefits while you were there, so the debt that flows forward is partially yours.

494 Over 400 F-105 Thunderchiefs were lost over the skies of North Vietnam. Or almost half the total production run. Thus sending men like Leo Thorsness to the Hanoi Hilton or others to Arlington. In the 66-67 time frame, the chances of a Thud pilot making it to one hundred missions was abysmal.

He wrote three books - When Thunder Rolled, Cobra Palace, and with Christina Olds published Robin Olds' biography Fighter Pilot: The Memoirs of Legendary Ace Robin Olds.

Ed went radio silent in December 2012 and passed away in January 2013.

528 Heard some plastic being rattled by a cat in the "junk room." (You've got a junk drawer, we've got a junk room.) Went to investigate.

On top of some storage trunks, on top of some framed art (lying face down) and other stuff, was a plastic bag with odds & ends in it... covered in fresh cat pee. Fortunately, most of the pee was on the plastic bag, but some leaked down onto the framed stuff.

Grabbed cat, rubbed his nose in it, threw him outside, and began clean-up. Joys of pet ownership.

I may not be around for the pet thread, so I though I'd share this Joy of the Morning with y'all.

One cup baking soda poured in drain followed by one cup of table salt, followed by one cup of white vinegar. Took three passes but the drain seems to have cleared. YMMV!
