Here we go again, another "conservative" candidate for U.S. Congress (this time from Florida) leading a double life and revealing himself to be a complete crackpot. No hype, this guy's got serious issues. St. Peters Blog has the full report, and it's a must-read.

Here's how Jacob A. Rush, "conservative straight shooter," wants us to see him:

However, in his super duper ultra secret double life, Rush belongs to "a nationwide community of gothic-punk role-players who come together to take on personas of vampires and other supernatural beings" who deal with "night-to-night struggles 'against their own bestial natures, hunters, and each other.'” I'msorrywhat?

What is up with conservatives named Rush? But I digress.

One of his supernatural personae goes by the name of "Chazz Darling" (Carlos Danger's swashbuckling unbuckling, brother?), a member of the Mind’s Eye Society, aka “Camarilla.”

Among the photos still available on the wiki are:

Burning books
Aiming shotguns at dogs
Dressed as a vampire
Dressed as a demon
Satanic symbolism
Being chained and gagged
Bloody angel wings

Note: For the uninitiated, a succubus is a female demon who appears in dreams, usually in human form, to seduce men through sexual activity.

This is what he wrote, as "Chazz Darling":

At first I thought you were just stupid and I wanted to stick my dick in your mouth to shut you up while I snorted a line off my new machete that was blessed by Rui (sic) but then I remembered that you were typing so my dick would really have to be in your hands to keep you from typing but since you are walking in Omaha that’s not really realistic right now.

I’m sorry, I tried.

Rae tells me that you are a Maiden, and it’s your job to be kind of stupid and that I’m not supposed to have intercourse with Maidens.

You shouldn’t believe everything that people tell you or you’re going to end up naked and sore, tied to the floor of a van marked “Free Candy.”

And stop letting people torpor (sic) you.

Except for the run-on sentences, poor word choices, perversion, vulgarity, and apparent mental illness, ol' Jake shows real promise! He'll fit in just fine in GOPland. He won't even need a speech writer, what with all that literary talent oozing out of what's left of his mind.

And hey! Nothing says "family values" like a "conservative straight shooter who wants "to stick my dick in your mouth to shut you up while I snorted a line off my new machete."

That should go over well with conservative voters.

George Zimmerman Now Can't Even Draw Flies

Zimmerman

In the immortal words of B.B. King, "The thrill is gone. The thrill is gone away." And that's good news when it comes to George Zimmerman.

George Zimmerman, the former neighborhood watchman and killer of unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin, failed to draw many fans at an Orlando gun show on Saturday, according to the NY Daily News. What can you say? Maybe the fascination with this killer has worn off. I wonder how OJ would have done at this event?

NY Daily News:

Over the course of six hours, fewer than 20 people at the gun show asked for a free autographed photo of Zimmerman, who was situated in a rear office of The Arms Room gun store in Orlando. The gun show, originally booked at Orlando’s Majestic Events Center, had been cancelled after word that Zimmerman would appear, however the promoters were able to secure another venue.

So, here's hoping sanity has returned to the public. Fascination with fads, like Fizzies and Lickamade are passing fancies. Now we can try adding George Z to that list.

Blood, Fire and Ice: Kiev's Deadly Winter Floodlights the East-West Divide

This post was written by our guest contributor, "hardybear" of the wonderful Free Range Talk site:

Kiev, glory of the banks of the River Dnipro and the shining city of the Ukraine, is now one more Protest-to-Near-War zone in a global political climate that showcases violence and further schismatic, fatality-frenzied divides in the oldest civilizations we collectively share.

While the world's eyes are on the Games in Sochi, the iron chest of Putin is puffed out in a stern egoist posture of Amicable Host. Unopened Olympic Rings and a stingingly harsh Men's Hockey loss are seemingly no more annoying than simul-cams of the Ukranian 'Pal of Putin' President Viktor Yanukovych's epic fail to find a non-nuclear solution in Kiev. To the tragic tune of over 70 dead yesterday alone. The most lethal day since the Ukraine separated from the USSR in 1992.

For now. In less than a long weekend, Vladimir will unsmilingly wave off the World and turn his fist to the Ukraine. After  centuries decades of their Russian-Soviet-Russian love-tyranny relationship, one suspects that he will Impale as many humans opposed to his worldview as possible in his dear Western-obsessed Kyiv.

Protesters worked to reinforce barricades in Kiev on Friday. Sergey Ponomarev for The New York Times.

In 1980 locals were as eager to meet a young American as I was to learn everything possible about the USSR, and Kiev was a great city to start the stint in. It went beyond young Ukranians wanting to purchase the Levi's off my arse, they wanted to sing and dance to Stones and Beatles tunes and to know every last detail about life and democracy in France and America. When I realized last month that a childhood friend from Vermont and his family were not going to be able to leave their home of nearly a decade in Ukraine and lived less than a half mile away from the protest zone, I reached out and was stunned to hear that they were in the thick of things, being Helpers in unimaginable chaos.

When the following email came along early Thursday morning from the chum's Ukranian wife, what was happening in Kiev on the tee vee suddenly became a reality under our safe, snow-laden country roof. [Names abbreviated for privacy reasons.]

[The government] Just published the message that in a few hours they will announce State of emergency. They will switch off mobile service and internet. SO if we are OFF line just stay in touch over the phone. We just came back from the main square. 5 dead bodies were lying under the tent. People say that we should hide and walk behind anything because there is a sniper on the roof that kills people. By the time we came back I was 15 dead. We stayed some time at Mikhailovskiy cathedral helping to sort medicine that people bring every second. Bags of syringes, IV, things for surgery, etc. J---- just left to pick up E---- from school.

We'll be in touch.

I am thrilled to report that today their family remains safe, if all too close to the action. Other neighbors, friends and 'passionate about democracy' pals were not so fortunate, and thanks to some quickly made acquaintances, we followed other eye-witness reports out of the city yesterday and today mourn many, as you can witness in the photo tribute below.

The historic Podil Quarter, one of Kiev's most charming areas to find a European café and luxe-ly breakfast on strong java and the dense local cheesecake called Syrnyk, was a popular place for families to gather in quieter times. Perhaps 19-year old Ustyn Holdnyuk had met his father there before his last day on earth, February 20, 2014. From the Facebook timeline of a noted champion of the cause in Kiev, Borys Gudziak, excerpts from a story titled "Blue Helmet".

BLUE HELMET

A strong man in his 50s with pale wax-like face-mask and red, fixed at one point eyes, was sitting on his knees next to the body covered by a bloody sheet… He didn’t have any force even to half-open it.

At last, he opened a bloody sheet by its corner, recognized his son, and covered his face immediately. He turned his head aside where eleven bodies were lying, also covered by white sheets with blood traces. Small pieces of paper with something written by red felt-tip pen were attached to those sheets at the level of the faces.
A big blue spot were seen among all this red painting on a white background… This was a military helmet painted in blue UN color. Covered by blood, it had a bullet hole on the left side at the level of the temple.

Ustyn Holdnyuk, 19 y.o., student from Zbarazh, small town in Ternopil region, Western Ukraine, was supposed to meet his father at 11 a.m. at October St. That’s what they agreed upon at 9 in the morning.

Ustyn was Maidan defender since November. They agreed that his father will bring him home, he needed some rest. But Ustyn didn’t survive those two hours before meeting his father.

“I told him: “Take care there, don’t expose yourself, the road is ahead”, said Holodnyuk. “He smiled saying: “Dad, don’t worry! I have a magic UN helmet and nothing will happen to me”. Those were his last words I heard from him”.

Volodymyr, Ustyn’s father, takes the helmet from the floor and is looking at the fresh lood of his son inside and outside the helmet, brings it closer to his face as if he wants to feel the smell and the warmth of his son, trying to say something, but his attempts are cutting short with the words “blue helmets”…

Former policeman, serving his whole life to his country, he’s trying to muffle… But he can’t…

Ustyn did not have any chance to survive, as well as even other lying next to him at the floor of Ukraina hotel, equipped for a temporary morgue, according to Olga Bohomolets, doctor in chief of the mobile hospital of Maidan self-defence.

“Sniper or snipers were professionals, she says. All their victims were shot in heart or head. All are killed with 7,62 mm bullets [Dragunov sniper rifle]. They were shot to defeat”.
As a citizen, Ustyn’s father was supporting his son’s striving to be on Maidan, says Volodymyr. As his father, he was against.

An enlightening interview from Thursday with Gudziak himself, wherein he gives an excellent brief history of the culture and conflict. In two brief parts.

It was mediocre news to hear around Noon EST Friday that the protesters and the Ukranian government have reached a "political reform deal" and have broached the bone of 'early' elections, three European Union ministries and councils helped broker the new truce, according to the New York Times.

KIEV, Ukraine — The embattled president of Ukraine and leaders of the opposition signed a political deal on Friday aimed at ending a spiral of lethal violence with early elections and a reduction in presidential powers, but Russia declined to endorse the accord and many protesters said nothing short of the president’s resignation would get them off the street.

Stay tuned. And please keep this story alive and these brave, relateable people in your hearts and minds.

"Well Shut My Mouth," Scott Brown Is Told In New Hampshire

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

Ethan Allen

Well, well, well. Looks like former Senator Scott Brown, defeated by Senator Elizabeth Warren in the last Senate elections in Massachusetts has been stirring up quite a controversy in neighboring state, New Hampshire.

Scott Brown, a Massachusetts resident is about to go carpet bagger. He's planning on running for the US Senate but from the Granite State just north of his legal residence.

People move all the time. Some even do it for political reasons, say, Liz Cheney. There's an election for the senate in Wyoming so she decided to carpet bag herself there to run against Mike Enzi. She doesn't stand a chance, but she needed some place to run and her family does have some tangential connection to the state. Her father was a congressman there before he became Vice President and creator of an illegal war. So perhaps an argument can me made for her choice.

But then you get to Scott Brown. He was once the darling of the Senate, a GOP newbie who had star written all over him, until he opened his mouth and Elizabeth Warren slammed it shut. But you can't keep a determined ex-centerfold nude model down for too long. So he's openly stated his interest in running as the GOP candidate against first-term Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.). He's going to do it, take my word for it. And if you want to know my record at predictions like this, I called both Ed Markey and Elizabeth Warren's runs six months before they each announced. I'm a New England boy, I know these things in my backyard.

You may be wondering how well the Republican golden boy's future announcement is going over? Not well. Not well at all. But the outspoken opponents are not the Democrats who think he's border jumping just to upset the apple cart. Brown's opposition is coming from his own party. And they're mad.

How mad? If I were Scott Brown I'd start wearing a bullet proof, Kevlar vest.

Huffpo reports:

During an interview with conservative podcast Granite Grok's GrokTalk on Saturday, New Hampshire state Rep. J.R. Hoell (R-Merrimack)suggested that it may some day be necessary to use "firearms and ammo" against the government if its policies continue to be shaped by elected officials like former Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.).

Yikes, that's pretty scary. There's already too much gun violence, so to start putting out hints that guns and ammo might be necessary is outrageous.

Hoell was discussing plans to protest outside a state GOP fundraiser that is scheduled to feature Brown, who is rumored to be considering a run for one of New Hampshire's U.S. Senate seats. Hoell has characterized Brown as too liberal for the state, and accused him of supporting laws that encroach on the Second Amendment. Hoell then invoked the armed uprisings of the Revolutionary War.

Progressive thinking in New Hampshire does go back to the Revolutionary War and Ethan Allen and his Green Mountain Boys. And sadly, that's the last time they had any sort of solid footing alongside contemporary thought or forward thinking. It's been a march backward in time since then.

When asked whether protesters should bring weapons to the rally, Hoell responds: I'm never going to tell a person not to carry a firearm ... I will recommend people carry firearms concealed. Tactically it's a better solution; it doesn't make you out to be a target.

The message needs to get out that Scott Brown does not represent New Hampshire. If things continue the way they are, there may be a day or a time where firearms and ammo are necessary. It happened in the Revolutionary War. I'd like to think we're not there yet, but as things continue to unravel, that may be the next step.

Protestors. Guns. Ammo. Concealed weapons. Targets. Revolutionary War. Firearms. Tactics. New Hampshire. Next step. Does this sound like peaceful discourse to you or a trip back down Memory Lane to 1776?

Facebook doesn't feel that blatant death threats to Pres. Obama violate their "Community Standards"

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

are you kidding me

Yesterday I wrote this up: Please report this Facebook page: "We now have authority to shoot Obama, i.e., to kill him." Here are a few excerpts from that page:

We now have authority to shoot Obama, i.e., to kill him.

The authority to kill Obama comes from the 2nd Amendment of our Constitution.

I would be very surprised, if Obama does not leave Washington DC today (Nov. 19th) ...never to return, if he is not dead within the month.

Please go to that page and report it, because, despite Facebook's apparent apathy, if enough people show them we're paying attention, maybe that message will eventually get through their thick, corporate, who cares what you guys think skulls.

Here is the response many of us got from Team FacePalmBook today:

Give Feedback

Needless to say, I gave them feedback. I reminded them that credible threats to the President of the United States should be taken seriously, and that their security standards are exceedingly low.

I also informed them that in the past 24 hours since I tweeted about this vile site, a huge number of people felt it violated Facebook's (and America's) "Community Standards" so severely that they contacted the Secret Service and the FBI.

This is but one more reason why I detest Facebook and only use it when I must.

Below is a screen grab of what some wretched extremist of questionable sanity named Everest Wilhelmsen posted on a reprehensible Facebook page (screen grab above) that goes by the name "United Patriots to Restore Our American Republic (UPROAR)":

Excuse me?!

We now have authority to shoot Obama, i.e., to kill him.

The authority to kill Obama comes from the 2nd Amendment of our Constitution.

I would be very surprised, if Obama does not leave Washington DC today (Nov. 19th) ...never to return, if he is not dead within the month.

Looks like a threat to me.

But hey, that's okay with Facebook, but when I included this photo to illustrate one of my posts, I was suspended:

Way to go, Facebook. As for "UPROAR," here is their "About" description (bolding mine):

U.P.R.O.A.R. (United Patriots to Restore Our American Republic) is dedicated to empowering our members to TAKE ACTION to RESTORE America to a Constitutional Republic as intended by the ORIGINAL INTENT of the Constitution of the United States of America.

3,755 members, who apparently believe that they're "EDUCATED." In all CAPS! And who need to get ready, because they may be "called on" to do "UGLY" things, in all CAPS! Because, freedom!

I strongly suggest going to that page and reporting them to Facebook. I've done that.

And it wouldn't be a bad idea to report their content to the Secret Service while you're at it. I've done that in the past, and they've responded immediately and even expressed their gratitude.

This is just one more horrific example of the rampant hate speech and incitement to violence that have crescendo'd since Barack Hussein Obama, our first African American president, ran and then won... twice. It's vile, it's despicable, it's dangerous, and it continues.

Raiders Of The Lost Ark Original Ending

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

Raiders of the lost ark

One of my favorite movies of all time is Raiders Of The Lost Ark. For pure matinee fun and adventure along with some nervous laughter and cliffhanging moments, this film has no real competition (except two of the sequels). I can watch it over and over again.

Recently, a lost version of the original ending of the movie resurfaced. It was considered too "violent" and would have gotten the movie an "R" rating. So Spielberg went back and came up with the ending we've all seen.

If you're interested here's the original ending before Spielberg changed it. Exploding heads and graphic carnage were in the director's early versions. Funny how times change things. Today, you'll see more shocking carnage on AMC's Walking Dead, but then again, Midnight Cowboy was rated "X" when it won the Oscar for Best Picture.
