Washington D.C. – Survival of the fittest

 

Wolf Management 101 – Guest post by Mustang

 

Washington is a pack of wolves.  There are several species of wolf, of course … but for simplicity sake, let’s just pretend there are only a few.  Nevertheless, despite different species, all wolves behave in the same way.  They are hunters looking to bring down and consume the weakest of their prey.

How we perceive these wolves is interesting.  For example, if one happens to be a western rancher who suffers the loss of one of his cattle, it makes perfect sense that this westerner would form a low opinion of wolves —but no matter what the rancher thinks, the truth is that the wolf is pure of heart.  He is only doing what wolves do.  A wolf pack may have killed and eaten a cow, but it did not break into the rancher’s house and steal his stereo or his wife’s jewelry.

We may apply the same analogy to describe Washington’s beltway shenanigans, where there are several species of wolves (Democrats, Republicans, Independents, journalists, lobbyists, bureaucrats).  They too are pure of blackest heart —seeking out the weakest of their prey.  I can even hear howling in the background.

This leads me to wonder, if Donald Trump has a mission to drain the swamp, and if he understands that the swamp is populated with wolves, why isn’t he arming himself?

  • Even supposing that Jeff Sessions resigns as Attorney General, does Mr. Trump imagine there will be no consequences from Sessions’ friends, allies, or even those of another political species who hates Sessions guts but sees an advantage in attacking Trump?  Is Mr. Trump so starved for attention?
  • Even supposing it is true that CNN and MSNBC behave themselves as something less than journalists, does Trump enhance his position, or detract from it, by hounding these people as news fakers?  (For the record, I can’t think of anything lower on the food chain than a journalist).  Why not starve the news fakers to death rather than giving them something to feast on every single day?
  • One must also wonder how to deal with wolves most effectively.  Is it by behaving as they do, running around baying at the moon, or by using high caliber weapons to dispatch them into wolf Valhalla?

There is something of Mr. Trump that we just don’t need: a daily dose of school-yard immaturity.  But there is also much about Trump that this country desperately needs —and why he was elected to the nation’s highest office.  We need him to address the wolves because they have become far too over-populated, because that is what Mr. Trump promised to do, and why the people elected him.  If he has a problem with Jeff Sessions, address it privately, as a gentleman, and then get on with the business of state-craft.

I understand that we can’t allow Mr. Trump to actually shoot these wolves, but he can damn-well starve them to death.  I hope he’s reading Bunkerville and thus gaining such phenomenal free advice.

Does Bernie Sanders steal his neighbor’s Washington Post?

So it looks like our Commie Bernie  has long fingers. He got kicked out of a commune for being lazy. I guess our multi-home Sanders can’t afford the paper:

Sticky-fingered socialist Bernie Sanders is apparently stealing his neighbor’s Washington Post subscription, as any good socialist might do.

In perhaps the funniest and most fitting news of the year, WMAL radio host Chris Plante told his audience of a story he’s heard about the elderly senator from friends. A man living next to Sanders apparently called the Post to complain that he was hardly ever receiving his subscription. After an investigation into the matter took place, it was realized by the paying customer that it was his neighbor, Senator Sanders, who was stealing the paper right from under his nose. Daily Wire 

Here’s Plante’s story via Red State: 

Bernie Sanders and his wife Jane when they are in Washington DC, live in this house on Capitol Hill, ok? Part of their vast real estate empire. They’re like wannabe Trumps with their real estate holdings.

The next-door neighbor…their neighbor on Capitol Hill called the Washington Post and told the Washington Post that they were cancelling their Washington Post subscription because their very expensive Sunday Post stopped showing up. Not there this week, last week, the week before, then it was there one week but the week before it wasn’t delivered, so I’m cancelling my subscription to the post because your delivery person never gets to me. I’m paying for it but it never gets to me. Keep reading…

Somali cop who killed Aussie Woman fast tracked, had only seven months training

Lest we forget…Somali Cop who pumped two to three bullets into one of the bright lights on this earth, was in an accelerated cadet training program. Included is a video of Justine Damond rescuing ducklings just a few weeks before she was slaughtered.

Why is Mohamed Noor still walking the street? The Medical Examiner stated her death was a homicide. See Somali cop shoots two to three bullets into yoga teacher, little emotion in audio released

The Minneapolis police officer who fatally shot an unarmed Australian woman graduated from the city’s accelerated police cadet program.

Officer Mohamed Noor graduated in 2015 after the seven month training program, which is a quicker, nontraditional route to policing aimed at helping those who already have a college degree enter law enforcement, The Star Tribune reported. (Noor did not have a degree in Criminal Justice, the usual route.)

The 31-year-old police officer was fast tracked into his role through the city’s accelerated cadet program.

The seven-month training program is designed for applicants already with a college degree, with recipients receiving tuition for Hennepin Technical College to complete their studies. More at the Daily Mail

Justine Damond : video shows murdered Aussie rescuing ducklings near Minneapolis home

Weeks before she was shot dead by Minneapolis police the Australian, also known as Justine Ruszczyk, was filmed reuniting a family of stranded ducks

When reporters asked friends and family for stories about Justine Damond, many of them asked: “Have you heard about the ducks?”

Three weeks before she was shot dead by police Damond, a 40-year-old Australian climbed into a storm drain and rescued a group of ducklings near her home in Minneapolis by gathering them in the folds of her skirt. The way her friends tell it, this incident was special but not atypical.

Sunday Respite – Gobi

For today’s Respite I chose the scene scape Gobi by Paul Lawler and Paul Speer.The beautiful photography reminds us of all the wonders that have been given to us. Wishing you a wonderful day. I add some of the notes from the video. I suggest as well watching it in full screen.

The Gobi is the largest desert region in Asia and the fifth largest desert in the world. It occupies an arc of land 1,000 mi (1,609 km) long and 300600 mi (5001,000 km) wide, with an estimated area of 500,000 sq mi (1,300,000 sq km). The Gobi stretches across huge portions of both Mongolia and China. Much of the Gobi is not sandy but is covered with bare rock.
The Gobi is most notable in history as part of the great Mongol Empire, and as the location of several important cities along the Silk Road.
The Gobi is a cold desert, and it is not uncommon to see frost and occasionally snow on its dunes. Besides being quite far north, it is also located on a plateau roughly 9101,520 meters (3,0005,000 ft) above sea level, which further contributes to its low temperatures. An average of approximately 194 millimeters (7.6 in) of rain falls per year in the Gobi. Additional moisture reaches parts of the Gobi in winter as snow is blown by the wind from the Siberian Steppes. These winds cause the Gobi to reach extremes of temperature ranging from 40°C (-42°F) in winter to +50°C (122°F) in summer. The Gobi is supposed to be the most harshest place on Earth.
The population density is small, fewer than three persons per square mile (one per square km), mostly Mongols with Han Chinese in Inner Mongolia. The main occupation of the inhabitants is nomadic cattle raising, though agriculture is predominant in regions where the Chinese are concentrated. The traditional living quarters of the Mongol nomads are felt yurts and orgers (types of tent).

 

DOJ indicts 15 in ‘Chop Chop’ for eagles, fails to charge against sale of baby parts

In this grisly story, we learn that the DOJ apparently is more concerned about the sale of illegal bird body parts than parts of aborted babies even thought they are ten times more valuable:

The Trump Department of Justice (DOJ) has yet to respond to letters from the chairs of congressional committees that made criminal referrals regarding allegations that Planned Parenthood and its partners in the biomedical procurement industry profited from the sale of the body parts of aborted babies.

In a stunning contrast, however, the DOJ has indicted 15 individuals for illegally trafficking the body parts of eagles and other migratory birds.

In April, following a two-year undercover operation known as Project Dakota Flyer, the U.S. Attorney’s office in South Dakota announced the indictments of 15 individuals for illegally trafficking eagle body parts.

The indictments in the eagle body parts trafficking cases are based on “the sale and purchase of wildlife with a market value in excess of $350,” while the CMP videos and the congressional committees showed StemExpress to be selling the body parts of aborted babies from Planned Parenthood for prices in excess of $500.

In one exhibit, the House Select Panel’s investigation highlighted the fees paid for the baby body parts by the procurement businesses to the abortion clinics, and then the fees charged by the procurement businesses to their customers for those same parts.

“The records subpoenaed by Congress show Planned Parenthood making ten times more money off of baby body parts than the amounts that got the eagle traffickers indicted, and companies like StemExpress sell aborted baby body parts from Planned Parenthood at prices far higher than the eagle body parts traffickers are charged with,” Daleiden explains to Breitbart News.

In the illegal eagle trafficking cases, U.S. Attorney Seiler accused the defendants of a lack of reverence for the eagles – a national symbol.

‘‘There was no cultural sensitivity,” he said. “There was no spirituality.’’

Trump digging up dirt on Mueller’s 15 Attorneys, new offensive

Finally it looks like Trump is getting the dogs out and going after Mueller. Where is Sessions and his going after Comey and Hillary? Gateway Pundit has a look at the 15 Attorneys that Mueller has put together at the Gateway link below:

As TGP previously reported, The Washington Post claimed that President Trump’s legal team are exploring ways to “scale back” Mueller’s investigation. This is great news, considering many believe Mueller is not an independent arbiter of the investigation and is abusing his power by investigating trivial business transactions.

Not only is Trump asking his advisers about his power to pardon family members and even himself in connection with the probe, The New York Times is reporting that President Trump is also going on the offensive. FINALLY!

Trump’s aides are seeking leverage as they investigate Mueller’s investigators.

Per The New York Times:

 President Trump’s lawyers and aides are scouring the professional and political backgrounds of investigators hired by the special counsel Robert S. Mueller III, looking for conflicts of interest they could use to discredit the investigation — or even build a case to fire Mr. Mueller or get some members of his team recused, according to three people with knowledge of the research effort.

The search for potential conflicts is wide-ranging. It includes scrutinizing donations to Democratic candidates, investigators’ past clients and Mr. Mueller’s relationship with James B. Comey, whose firing as F.B.I. director is part of the special counsel’s investigation.

Somali cop shoots two to three bullets into yoga teacher, little emotion in audio released

 

Now we learn that two to three shots were fired by the Somali police officer into the body of the pajama clad yoga teacher standing at the driver’s side window. The officers sure don’t seem upset in the audio report we have now do they? We find out that no Grand Jury will be impaneled. Anyone want to bet this gets buried?

Dispatch Audio:

The Medical Examiner labeled it murder. Why aren’t the people burning down the town?? The Washington Post of course gives the Officer a sympathetic article.

The Washington Post featured a sympathetic article on the Minneapolis, Minn. police officer who shot an Australian woman last weekend, a marked shift from their coverage on former officer Jeronimo Yanez.

The Tuesday article focuses on the Somali community fearing retribution because a Somali officer, Mohamed Noor, reportedly fatally shot a white Australian woman. The piece also emphasizes the praise that Noor has received from his community and superiors.

It’s not until halfway through the story that the article mentions the three use of force complaints against Noor, one of which was closed. The article quickly turns from that information to a comment by a local activist on the role model Noor is for those around him.

Noor fatally shot Justine Damond, an engaged woman, after she called the police about a sexual assault happening near her house. The Medical Examiner’s office described the fatal shooting as a homicide.

For an outlet concerned with police brutality, WaPo starts off describing a party being thrown for Officer Noor, followed by how his presence on the force made his community proud of him.
