The Doors: Break On Through
2013 Darwin Award Nominee
Confirmed True by Darwin

*** begin quote ***

It is reasonable that elevator doors should open with a determined effort, otherwise people are physically trapped inside elevators when the power fails. It is unreasonable to protect idiots from themselves no matter the extreme. And idiots are made, not born — the person in question had voluntarily swallowed a mix of decision-impairing substances bringing his BAC to 0.17% with a Xanax chaser. Unfamiliar with Xanax, this writer thumbed through the Urban Dictionary and found Xanax described as one of the more addictive benzos with withdrawal effects including psychosis and epileptic-type seizures.
Summary? A DARWIN AWARD is granted to Chad Wolfe, while a STELLA AWARD for legal stupidity is awarded to the Estate of Chad Wolfe.

Personally, I LOVE the Darwin awards.

Maybe it’s uncharitable, un-Christian, and un-Jasper-like, but I find it hard to be sympathetic to fools.

I have submitted many stories, but only really came close once.

It would be the highlight of my internet “career” to have a winner.

While I’d pray for the topic of the story, stupidity is it’s own reward.

Argh!

The U.S. Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) informed congressional staffers from several committees on Friday that the emails were found among hundreds of “disaster recovery tapes” that were used to back up the IRS email system.

Now things should get interesting!

Interesting that this dropped in on the “news dead zone” of the week end!

POLITICAL: Ford aluminum truck is a Gooferment mandate

Is Alloy Your Ally?

The bottom line is that Ford is going over to aluminum chiefly to make it politically feasible to continue building a mass-market full-size truck. As I have ranted about previously, the “driver” is not market demand so much as government mandate.

*** end quote ***

So here we have again politicians and bureaucrats making the market conform to their wishes.

And yet everyone claims that the USA is “free”.

Guess I have the wrong dictionary?

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/free

*** begin quote ***

free adjective, freer, freest.

{Extraneous Deleted}

5.exempt from external authority, interference, restriction, etc., as a person or one’s will, thought, choice, action, etc.; independent; unrestricted.

*** end quote ***

So there is no ECONOMIC justification to buy one of these.

Argh!

HARDWARE: Russian Plane Zaps U.S. Warship

A Russian Plane Zaps U.S. Warship’s Missile Defense System

An unarmed Russian bomber in April flew over a high-tech U.S. ship. A crew member pressed a button. Poof! No more missile defense system on the ship. No more radar. The ship became a defenseless floating coffin.

Then the plane flew over the blind ship a dozen times. Basically, it was “Nyah, nyah, nyah.”

This story got no play in American media.

So, we are sitting ducks again.

Anyone remember Pearl Harbor?

TAGONIST: “… … and killed a young woman”

Kentucky cops raid teenagers’ field party, kill girl who tried to escape
Deputy faces no charges after shooting girl 4 times.
Posted on November 12, 2014 by Site Staff in News

*** begin quote ***

HEBRON, KY — Police charged into a darkened field trying to arrest teenagers for consuming alcohol without government permission, and killed a young woman in the process.

Boone County Sheriff’s Deputy Tyler Brockman Boone County Sheriff’s Deputy Tyler Brockman
The deadly raid occurred in the early morning hours of Saturday, April 26th, 2014. After witnessing “cars full of juveniles” and “hear[ing] loud music and people screaming,” Boone County Sheriff’s Deputy Tyler Brockman radioed for “several patrol cars for assistance, as it seem[ed] like a large party with underage drinking was going on,” according to an official report.

Deputies responded in force and attempted to surround the party, which was taking place on a rural road in Hebron, Kentucky.

*** and ***

Deputy Tyler Brockman will not face any consequences for killing Samantha Ramsey. In November 2014, a grand jury issued him a “no bill” and effectively cleared him from legal responsibility for his actions.

Brockman claimed that Ms. Ramsey tried to run him over and that he was the victim. According to his version of events, he clung to the hood of Ms. Ramsey’s car in an attempt to enforce the law upon the fleeing suspect. In doing so, he feared for his life and had to open fire with his pistol.

“The shots were fired not only to save his life, but also the pedestrians walking on the road and the officers currently just down the road initiating other arrests,” the police report stated.

Although Deputy Brockman asserted that he “had no choice” but to kill the girl, it is evident that she would be alive had the police not arrived at the party in the first place. Samantha Ramsey’s untimely death was needless; her life was taken as collateral damage in the government’s overbearing control over a beverage. Fatalities like this are guaranteed when the law encourages armed enforcers to interject themselves incessantly into the lives of citizens.

*** end quote ***

ANTAGONIST: Over and above the stupid laws about “(pseudo) War on (some) Drugs” — in this case: alcohol —the police botch the raid. What did they think was going to happen? And, was this their “first rodeo”? Where was the probably cause? And, of course, “no bill”. These “juveniles” were merely “mundanes”. Argh! 

PROTAGONIST:  The police were just enforcing the law, that is their job.  If a community does not like laws against underage drinking then they need to vote in people that will not write those laws.  As far as the incident, there is little to go on…from the little video evidence it appears that the girl was not going to stop her car after being ordered to do so by the policeman.  We don’t know what happened after that, except the officer’s report indicates he was stuck on her hood in trying to stop the vehicle and she was not going to stop…he was in fear for his life.

ANTAGONIST: Please, no more “voting makes difference”. What is the “community” but a flock of sheep to shorn, led, and eventually slaughtered. So the costumed man with a gun “orders” her to stop her car and she has to “obey” without question. Yes, it’s unfortunate that “COPS” was not the scene filming the “courageous” and “brave” police enforcing more drug laws. My question is if he was determined to stop traffic, why not block the road with the cop car? Would not that been more effective and safer for him? So now we have the death penalty administered without a court on the side of a Kentucky road.

You decide: Good Cop or Bad Kop?

TINFOILHAT: PATCON and the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing

They’ll Be Back: PATCON, Oklahoma City, and Jesse Trentadue’s Lonely Crusade for Justice
By William Norman Grigg
Pro Libertate Blog
November 15, 2014

*** begin quote ***

It was during the second conversation with Quirk that Matthews explicitly mentioned his role as an undercover operative in an FBI initiative called called PATCON, or “Patriot Conspiracy.” This was a long-term provocation campaign in which the Bureau sought “to infiltrate and incite the militia and evangelical Christians to violence so that the Department of Justice could crush them,” explains Trentadue.

The man Matthews had known as “Don Jarrett” had been his FBI handler – and apparently still is, given the deference to him shown by Matthews. Now that the Regime has largely shifted its domestic focus from Muslims back to “sovereign citizens,” Jarrett is probably busy orchestrating homeland security theater operations involving the “Radical Right.”

Assuming that “Don Jarrett” is still the name of Matthews’ former handler, he may currently be working as an “Independent Insurance Professional” in Florida. According to his vita, Jarrett retired from the FBI in 1998, becoming an insurance investigator and security consultant for the NFL. It’s not clear how he wound up in Afghanistan last year: A May 1, 2013 email to Matthews reported that he was in Afghanistan, and that he expected to leave at the end of June. Using his last known email address, I sent Jarrett a number of questions to which he has not replied. Given PATCON’s history the chances are pretty good that wherever Jarrett finds himself, bad things are being done to innocent people.

“Ruby Ridge was a PATCON operation,” Trentadue has pointed out. “Waco was a PATCON operation. And so, too, I believe, was the Oklahoma City Bombing.”

The Gooferment is getting bigger and bigger. The bigger it gets, the more out of control it gets.

Back tracking on key events — it always seems there’s Gooferment rat or rats in the proverbial haystack of needles.

This particular report casts doubt on the whole 1995 Oklahoma City bombing “story”.

TINFOILHAT: LBL’s stand in killed?

LBJ’s Double – Cousin Jay Bert Peck – And his Untimely Death
By Phil Nelson
November 15, 2014

*** begin quote ***

It all started in 1968, when a news item appeared in two national magazines announcing that Lyndon Johnson had a “double,” a man who was known to have “stood-in” for Johnson on a number of occasions when Johnson wanted his presence known to have “existed,” even though he needed to be someplace else at that point in time. Lyndon’s cousin, J. Bert Peck, had a close resemblance to Johnson, and a voice that sounded like him.

*** and ***

The fact that these scenes were originally in the movie, as noted by the news articles above, but deleted at some later point, suggests that someone did not want the fact that Johnson had a “double” to become widely known to the public, at least in such a record that might become permanent, like a movie.  All of which begs the questions, “Who would have had the power to delete that footage, and change the movie description to delete all references to the “presidential” scenes and change the credits to list only “J. B. Pick” (instead of “Peck”) and instead of listing his character name (LBJ) it is only listed as “uncredited.”   One must carefully ponder this question and consider the implications, as part of this exercise in deductive reasoning: “Is it possible that LBJ picked up the telephone and called Jack Valenti one day in August, 1968, and asked (or, more likely, ordered) him to have those changes made to the movie? If not, how then did these obviously telling yet otherwise innocuous set of changes get made, and by whose order?”

*** and ***

There was scarcely any other news about Jay Bert Peck’s murder, except for his obituary two days later.  The abbreviated news coverage on the death of Mr. Peck resulted in yet another unresolved anomaly:  Although he was found by his wife Dorothy shortly after the gunshot, when she ran into the bedroom to find him lying in bed with a bullet wound in the head, there was no indication in any report of a gun ever being found at the scene.

*** end quote ***

Who indeed?

There are many murders associated with LBJ. Not the least of which is the Kennedy assasination.

I doubt we will ever know the truth.

A body double plays a central role in the Heinlein novel Double Star (1956). So, it’s very plausible.

I don’t know what to make of the whole tale. Except to duct tape my tin foil hat on a little tighter and trust politicians, bureaucrats, …

… and the “media” a lot less. If that’s even possible!
