Ok, but is he making his own army?

Virginia Sheriff Plans To Deputize Whole County To Loophole New Gun Laws

Sheriff Scott Jenkins of Culpeper County, Va. proposed a way to exempt citizens from newly proposed Virginia gun laws that might otherwise bar them from owning certain firearms.

In a Wednesday Facebook post, Jenkins warned that some of the gun laws proposed in the Virginia General Assembly would “disarm or handicap our law-abiding in their defense,” and in turn suggested he would confer the label of deputy on thousands of law-abiding citizens to include them in law enforcement carve-outs included in new gun legislation.

“I remain very optimistic that our General Assembly will not pass the proposed bills. Obviously, if passed, there are many of us willing to challenge these laws through the courts,” Jenkins said. “In addition, if necessary, I plan to properly screen and deputize thousands of our law-abiding citizens to protect their constitutional right to own firearms.”

Kind of sounds like he’s making a militia. And if he does deputize all these people, what then? By rights, he should be able to call them up as necessary ... and wouldn’t that mean they get paid for such service? Other than that, this sounds like a great idea.

The Green Grinches Are At It Again

Holiday Sweaters Are A Threat To The World
“How Dare You!!”

Most fun Christmas sweaters are made of plastic and are “bad for the environment,” U.K.-based charities warned Friday, adding the time has come to ditch the festive staple in favor of “ethical” wear that is not a “threat to the natural world.”

A study by the Hubbub group found many Christmas sweaters are worn only once – and there are already 65 million stashed away in our wardrobes from previous years.

The research looked at 108 jumpers from 11 online and high street retailers and found 95 percent were made wholly or partly of plastic and to continue to buy and wear them shows scant regard for the planet.

Sarah Divall, creative partner at Hubbub, said consumers are often “unaware” of the damage their shopping may be causing to the environment, SKY News reports.

“We don’t want to stop people dressing up and having a great time, but there are so many ways to do this without buying new’, said Sarah Divall from Hubbub.

“Fast fashion is a major threat to the natural world and Christmas jumpers are particularly problematic as so many contain plastic. A lot of people are concerned about plastics in the oceans but they don’t realise that the stuff they are wearing also has plastic in it as well.”

the fleeting nature of performance art

Update to that banana on the wall bit of “art” that sold for $120,000 in Florida: somebody ate it.

The banana was consumed by another artist, perhaps in an act of hunger, or an act of jealousy, or as an even snider mock on the original piece that was mocking the art world. Gee, how ironic.

But never fear, the banana art comes with a certificate of authenticity and instructions for replacing the banana. So the concept is safe. Gosh, what an investment. Last time I checked, organic bananas were 59¢/lb locally. 120 grand could buy you more bananas than your whole neighborhood could eat in a lifetime. And a roll of duct tape is what, about $3.99?

a billion in equity lost so far

Actor Ryan Reynolds owns Aviation Gin. He just posted a quicky “commercial” titled “No exercise bike included” featuring the actress from that Peloton ad. Looks like she may have put on a needed pound or two. She’s out at the bar with her girlfriends, not looking crazy or frightened, just kind of sad. She hammers down one martini as they console her and toast “to new beginnings”. Girlfriend 2 gives her another martini. In the last 1/8 second of the clip, “Monica“‘s left hand comes up from under the table, and if you’re really sharp you’ll see there’s no ring on her finger.


I wonder if a Peloton bike is heavy enough to work as an anchor so that the body never floats to the surface?

Investigators Find 629 Pakistani Christian Women Sold To China As Brides In One Year
Investigation Shut Down To Appease Chinese

LAHORE, Pakistan (AP) – Page after page, the names stack up: 629 girls and women from across Pakistan who were sold as brides to Chinese men and taken to China. The list, obtained by The Associated Press, was compiled by Pakistani investigators determined to break up trafficking networks exploiting the country´s poor and vulnerable.

The list gives the most concrete figure yet for the number of women caught up in the trafficking schemes since 2018.

But since the time it was put together in June, investigators´ aggressive drive against the networks has largely ground to a halt. Officials with knowledge of the investigations say that is because of pressure from government officials fearful of hurting Pakistan´s lucrative ties to Beijing.

At the same time, the government has sought to curtail investigations, putting “immense pressure” on officials from the Federal Investigation Agency pursuing trafficking networks, said Saleem Iqbal, a Christian activist who has helped parents rescue several young girls from China and prevented others from being sent there.

“Some (FIA officials) were even transferred,” Iqbal said in an interview. “When we talk to Pakistani rulers, they dont pay any attention. ”

What the Hell, they’re only females. Worse, Christians. So who cares?

Might be time to send the Saudis home

NAS Pensacola Shooter, Saudi, Hosted pre-jihad party for all the others earlier this week.

One taped the shooting Friday while others watched. Arrest count started at 3, went to 6, is now 10.

Maybe it’s time to stop training Saudi brats to fly airplanes. Gee, you’d think they learned that lesson after 9/11, right?

The Saudi student who fatally shot three people at a U.S. naval base in Florida hosted a dinner party earlier in the week where he and three others watched videos of mass shootings, a U.S. official told The Associated Press on Saturday.

One of the three students who attended the dinner party videotaped outside the building while the shooting was taking place at Naval Air Station Pensacola on Friday, said the U.S. official, who spoke on condition of anonymity after being briefed by federal authorities. Two other Saudi students watched from a car, the official said.

The official said 10 Saudi students were being held on the base Saturday while several others were unaccounted for.

U.S. officials had previously told the AP they were investigating possible links to terrorism.

The student opened fire in a classroom at the base Friday morning, killing three people.

A U.S. official who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity on Friday identified the shooter as Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani. The official wasn’t authorized to discuss the matter publicly. The official also said the FBI was examining social media posts and investigating whether he acted alone or was connected to any broader group.

The assault, which prompted a massive law enforcement response and base lockdown, ended when a sheriff’s deputy killed the attacker. Eight people were hurt in the attack, including the deputy and a second deputy who was with him.

While President Trump says everything is just peachy with the Saudis, to the rest of us this seems to create a rather uncomfortable diplomatic situation.

Kentucky VS Florida: The Battle Continues

The ongoing battle between Florida and Kentucky for Moron Of The Week ...

Florida: The Art Of Mocking Art Pays Well

Banana Duct Taped To Wall By Maurizio Cattelan Sells For $120,000

Arguably one of the most talked-about works of art at this year’s Art Basel was a banana duct-taped to a wall that sold for $120,000.

It’s Maurizio Cattelan’s latest work of art. It’s called ‘The Comedian’ and it is entertaining art lovers from around the globe.

Some of those same art lovers’ conversations swirled around his 2017 golden toilet. The $6-million throne was stolen from England’s Blenheim Palace over the summer.

Art lover Weezie Chandler said, “You can do anything and once you’re established you can get away with it.”

Many believe this more ‘a-peeling’ piece represents the art world and its gaping wealth inequalities. Others advise not to think that deep.

One art lover said, “It’s mocking the art world. That’s what Maurizio Cattelan does.”

The first two pieces according to were sold for $120,000, a third is being sold for $150,000.

As you may know by now, the semi-retired artist, whose last major creation was a golden toilet titled America (2016), has now taped a banana to a wall of Perrotin gallery’s booth at Art Basel Miami Beach, the glitzy bazaar that alights in that flood-endangered city every December. It is titled Comedian, and it is priced at $120,000. Three were available, and the first two apparently sold on opening day.

It isn’t even all that original. Another “artist” tacked a banana peel to a bit of drywall in 2008 and called it Installation (banana). No idea how much that glorious bit of genius sold for back then.


Kentucky: Family Court Judge Is A Total Slut

A female judge in Kentucky has been accused of having threesomes in her chambers and allowing employees to get drunk on the job.

Family Court Judge Dawn Gentry allegedly gave attorneys preferential treatment if they appeased her sexual demands and donated to her campaigns for re-election. 

The 38-year-old has now been hit with nine misconduct charges. 

According to an investigation by the Kentucky Judicial Conduct Commission, she flirted with attorneys over Snapchat, put pressure on them to sleep with her and, in one case, asked a female attorney to join her in a threesome with her former church pastor turned lover. 

On one occasion, she and the former pastor are said to have had a threesome with her secretary.

Gentry serves as a family court judge for Kenton County which is south of the Kentucky-Ohio state line near Cincinnati.

Plenty more at the link.

I’d give this round to Kentucky by at least 5 lengths. While the banana art in Florida just shows how stupid people with way too much money can be, the judge is a corrupt tramp. She was trading hoochie for favorable treatment in the courtroom. And that’s just downright evil.

To be fair, Florida won yesterday’s Loser-ama hands down. Vilmar covered that one. And then there was that news bit on the two super fatties who started a GoFundMe to help them diet, each has to lose at least 200lb before they can get bariatric surgery to carve off even more pounds. So Florida is probably ahead overall this week. But it’s only Saturday afternoon. You never know.

rolling rolling bowling

Woo hoo, we won all 3 tonight. 7-0. And we did it against my former teammates. And we did it just above or below our handicap. We got 18 pins from them. We won the first game by 10. We won the second game by 20. We were rather behind in the third game, but we pulled off a strong 10th frame the hard way. Our first newbie flooped through the 10th, putting 9 pins up. Our other newbie did a bit better, putting 17 up, but we were still down 79 pins or something like that. My wife is our 3rd bowler, and with a strike in the 9th, she rolled a 7, made the spare and then threw a 6, putting 36 up. And we were still down, when I faced Dave for the anchor slots. He was on an open and I don’t think he marked. I also had a strike in the 9th, threw a strike in the 10th and then a crappy 6, leaving a split on the 1-2-4-10. So I’d put 42 up already. So we were real close, and I hadn’t looked at the scores. I choked the throw a bit, and made the 1-2-4, but didn’t kick any pins over to the right to get the 10. Arrgh. But when the final score came up, we had won by one pin. ONE pin. So this is the 2nd time we’ve faced them this season, and the 2nd time we took all 7. Neener neener neener. We’ll probably face them once more this season, so my hope is we tromp them then too. Who me, vengeful? Nah. I just love when the guys I’ve bowled with for the better part of a decade just dump me behind my back in the off season. No reason at all I want to bowl them into the mud. Every time. Sweet.

sorry, near zero effort today

I’m just not into it today. But I did see this one and it made me laugh.

Kaepernick workout leads to job with Redskins

But not the way you might think.

The Washington Redskins were one of the teams that attended Colin Kaepernick’s workout in Georgia last month. Their attendance was hard to explain because signing Kaepernick made no sense for the team.

But now, the Redskins have made a signing based (at least in part) on what they saw during the Kaepernick workout. The Skins signed to their practice squad one of the wide receivers to whom Kaepernick threw passes.

He’s Jordan Veasy, who played his college ball at Berkeley. Veasy was not drafted, but has been a member of the practice squads of four NFL teams. The Redskins will be his fifth.

Ok, maybe it isn’t the standard rich and famous contract, but Veasy got some kind of paying job out of it. And being that close to the Bigs, who knows what could happen with a bit of luck?

Not one team has made any kind of overture to Kunta Kinte Kaepernick. Good.

Oops They Done Did It Again

Didn’t we just hear this same song in Baltimore a few weeks ago?

PA Rep Movita Harrison (D, “X") Resigns, Charged With Stealing 1/2 Mil From Her Own Charity


It’s one thing to steal. It’s another level of deceit altogether when one steals from their own charity to buy a Porsche. Former Pennsylvania Representative Movita Johnson-Harrell has been charged for doing just that and has resigned from her seat as a result. She was the first Muslim female to be elected to the Pennsylvania House of Representatives.

She proclaimed her innocence for “some” of the charges against her in her resignation speech yesterday. But Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro was pretty certain he had the right charges, expressing his confidence in a swift and thorough trial. The details of the charges are shocking.

HARRISBURG — State Rep. Movita Johnson-Harrell, a West Philadelphia Democrat, said Wednesday that she would resign after prosecutors charged her with stealing more than $500,000 from her own nonprofit and spending it on family vacations, designer clothing, furs, personal bills — and her bid for the legislature.

State Attorney General Josh Shapiro said Johnson-Harrell engaged in “brazen corruption” and systematically tried to cover up her crimes by falsifying records and financial statements.

“Her theft knew no bounds,” Shapiro said as he announced that his office had charged the first-term lawmaker with theft, perjury, tampering with public records, and related crimes Wednesday morning.

Shapiro said Johnson-Harrell would plead guilty to charges and faces jail time. “There will be a guilty plea that will be worked out, and you will see the details of that soon,” he said.

Johnson-Harrell, 53, disputed many of the charges, but said she would resign this month.

“I am saddened and dismayed by the nature of the allegations brought against me today. I vigorously dispute many of these allegations, which generally pertain to before I took office, and I intend to accept responsibility for any actions that were inappropriate,” Johnson-Harrell, who represents the 190th District, said in a statement through her attorney.

The charges against Johnson-Harrell mean she is poised to become the second state lawmaker from the West Philadelphia district to leave office under a cloud of criminal accusations in one year. Johnson-Harrell won the seat in a March special election to replace Vanessa Lowery Brown, who was convicted of bribery and other charges and resigned last December.

So she got the job in March after the previous representative turned out to be a crook. Looks like MJ-H wasted no time grabbing up da money, swiping $500,000 in just 9 months.

Plenty of more details at the links, including how this champion of da po folks ran an orphanage with federal money and let it rot. Oh yeah, Philly’s Phinest.

And Here We Go !

Dems Move For Real Impeachment

Holy shit.

The Democrats have announced they will bring articles of impeachment against Donald Trump, making him just the fourth US president in history to face the move.

Nancy Pelosi, the most senior Democrat in the House of Representatives, announced that after more than two months of an impeachment inquiry the party had decided to table articles.

Ms Pelosi likened Mr Trump to a “king president” as she lent on history to justify the decision, talking about why America’s founding fathers created the power to impeach.

“With confidence and humility, with allegiance to our founders and a heart full of love for America, today I am asking our chairman to proceed with articles of impeachment,” Ms Pelosi said.

Debate now turns to which articles of impeachment will be brought against Mr Trump, how many and when they will be voted on.

Even yesterday’s hearings, featuring several “constitutional scholars”, some of whom who seemed quite barmy couldn’t turn this aside. So here we go. This is the biggest Hail Mary play in our nation’s history. Please God, let them fail. Let them fail utterly, and then face public and legal punishment of biblical proportion. If not, then our government is doomed no matter who gets elected, as the other side will do nothing other than to try to get that President fired.

an even sweeter sweetheart deal

Obamas close on Martha’s Vineyard Estate for 50% off

Former President Barack Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama have purchased a nearly 7,000-square-foot home on Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts for $11.75 million, according to a report.

The purchase price was recorded Wednesday with the local Registry of Deeds, the Vineyard Gazette reported.

The Obamas paid about half the original asking price for the property when it first became available in 2015, the report said.


The Obamas previously purchased a nine-bedroom house in Washington, paying a reported $8.1 million.

The Obamas have entered some lucrative business deals since leaving the White House.

Michelle Obama received a $65 million advance for her memoir, “Becoming,” while the pair also negotiated a $50 million deal with Netflix to develop programming.

In addition, the former first lady reportedly commands a speaking fee of $225,000. She and her husband are said to have a net worth of $135 million.

She certainly has sold a lot of copies of her book. Total numbers are well over 11 million at this point. It’s hard to say if her book has “earned out” yet with the publisher since her slice of the pie is unknown. However, at $12 a copy for hardcover, and $24 for the eBook, she’d need at least a 30% cut of the gross for that to have happened by now. Typically an author gets 10%. OTOH, her book is still in the Top 50, and will probably spike again as we get deeper into the holiday season.

Dis Be Raycis

Democrat Ouroboros Festival: Harris Out, Therefore Raycis !!!

With the exist of marginally black candidate Kamala Harris, and extremely low polling numbers for marginally black candidate Cory Booker, and problems for possibly POC candidate Julian Castro, Dem pundits are CONVINCED it’s all about white supremacy. Not for a nanosecond do they consider that people just aren’t happy with the message these wannabes are pushing. No, it’s all about race, because at heart, Democrats - the party of slavery, Jim Crow, the KKK, the stranglehold trap of LBJ’s Great Society, and segregation old and new - are in fact racists. So they go right back to eating their own tails, and blaming everyone else.


Mr. Squirrel is shocked at this development

The sudden exit of Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif, from the 2020 presidential campaign is causing a panic among some within the Democratic Party over the remaining candidates who are participating in the upcoming debate, who are all white.

Despite qualifying for the December debate, Harris announced earlier Tuesday that she was suspending her candidacy amid sinking poll numbers and fundraising.

“In good faith, I can’t tell you, my supporters and volunteers, that I have a path forward if I don’t believe I do,” Harris wrote in an email to supporters. “So, to you my supporters, it is with deep regret—but also with deep gratitude—that I am suspending my campaign today.”

Her departure leaves only six candidates on the debate stage: former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., and billionaire Democratic donor Tom Steyer.

The other candidates of color have yet to meet both requirements set by the DNC to participate in the December debate. The requirements include having at least 200,000 unique donors and reaching four percent in four DNC-approved polls or six percent in two DNC-approved early state polls.

Both tech businessman Andrew Yang and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, have met the donor requirement to qualify for the December debate but have yet to meet the polling requirement as they each only have three polls and have until the December 12 cutoff to earn the fourth.

Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., has met the donor requirement but does not have any qualifying polls so far. Former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro has not met either requirement and previously failed to qualify in the November debate.

Hey, their party set the rules. Surely there couldn’t be any bias or skullduggery going on inside the great DNC machine? Let’s ask Bernie about that one.

There are dozens of news stories running on this today. Most showcase loads of benighted and crude responses from various known talking heads.

I find the schadenfreude utterly delicious. Sorry lefties, you had your moment in the sun, bamboozling the nation into electing some elitist Marxist clown twice because he was somewhat black, while hypocritically claiming that it wasn’t about race, but branding any criticism of him as racist. And he was a weak, vain, ineffective and lazy president who did his best to ruin the nation. So if you want another minority player, you’d better find one with some content, and not just one who is a character.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.
