Rule 5: Fluvia Lacerda


Time out for a plus-sized model, before we get too strung out on the cheesecake.

Nixon erased 18 minutes; Hildabeast four years*

Of course she also has the snooze media on her side and he didn’t. Which makes all the difference in a country (ours) without much of an independent news media.

Not that they don’t claim to be independent and objective but look at the difference between what they did to him over his 18 erased minutes of chat and how indifferent they are to her erasure of four years worth of email.

OTOH, that deleted email can be recovered… If anyone cares to try. Unless she also destroyed the hard-drive/server.

Clown show

District of Columbia Congressional Delegate (whatever that is) Eleanor Holmes Norton demonstrates how not to diagonal-park. Geometry-challenged, maybe?

Or maybe it was the white lines that threw her off, eh? Although you’ll notice her young aide is white. And why is that, you might ask? Is there a scarcity of black ones?

It is lovely that the Internet (so far) allows us to see such clown shows which, as recently as the early 1990s, the snooze media would have kept to itself.

Laws are for the little people*

They’re certainly not for the Hildabeast, and her lapdog news media is too busy licking her shoes to notice. Which is good for her, ’cause she has a lot to hide.

“’After seeking and receiving a two week extension from the Committee, Secretary Clinton failed to provide a single new document to the subpoena issued by the Committee and refused to provide her private server to the Inspector General for the State Department or any other independent arbiter for analysis,’ Representative Trey Gowdy (R., S.C.), the chairman of the select committee investigating the [Benghazi] attacks, announced Friday evening.”

Now we’ll see if the GOP has the nutmegs to find her in contempt of Congress. For starters. Don’t hold your breath. Nixon would be so envious.

Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens could not be reached for comment.

UPDATE:  The government many of us find dysfunctional works wonderfully well for Friends of Bill & Hill. It’s all about who you know.

Willie’s Reserve: Better late than never

He had to wait until he was 81 years old, but famed all-day toker Willie Nelson finally will offer Willie’s Reserve, his own brand of legal marijuana—at least in those states where it’s legal to sell it for recreational use.

Which, IIRC*, so far is only Colorado. The others, including D.C., allow you to grow your own but not to buy or sell it. He might be better off selling grow lights and how-to books.

UPDATE: *Okay, I’m wrong. Only D.C. requires you to grow but not to sell or buy it. You can buy or sell it for recreational use in Colorado, Washington, Oregon and Alaska and at least a couple of cities in Maine. Go for it, Willie!

Bibi: Bomber of hospitals, mosques & schools


Barry Hussein’s hometown newspaper, The Chicago Tribune, doesn’t like Bibi either. Or the IDF. Or Israel. I suppose we should be grateful their lying cartoonist Joe Fournier didn’t draw Bibi a hook nose.

UPDATE:  And the beat goes on: Pentagon discloses details of Israel’s nuke weapons program. Will any country ever trust us with their secrets again?

Your life in the hands of one

Ever since the airlines eliminated the flight engineers on the flight deck, our lives have been in the hands of two people, the captain and the first officer. And when one of them leaves the flight deck to go to the toilet, there’s only one person up there in the pointy end.

Just one.

Whether the sensational NYTimes report is accurate or not (and heavens knows they’re not paragons of objective, accurate reporting about anything else) it’s plain the cost-cutting airlines have imperiled all of us who fly with them all the time.


UPDATE:  The NYT report has now been seconded by a French prosecutor.

MORE: The Germanwings First Officer’s ex-girlfriend says he planned it. He was a psycho on the locked flight deck who flew 150 people into a mountain. That’s another airline to stay away from.
