fingers crossed

My old Satrun wouldn’t start after work this morning. Not even the sluggish chirr-rrr-rr of a dying battery. Just silence. Starter motor solenoid not doing a thing. Hmmph, maybe the car froze to death in the cold wind. Gave it a push down the hill, got it running with a bump start. Drove it around to small local shops where I could leave it running and do a quick in ‘n out, drove it around town and then home. Got the whole engine compartment nice and warm. Right. That was 5 hours ago. I’ve got to go out to a couple other stores. Will it start here? Will it leave me stranded in some parking lot? I should surf the lots and find a spot where the car will roll downhill, just in case.

Maybe it was just a passing gremlin ... but what better time for the car to break down, when a major snowstorm is in the forecast and I have lots of little errands to run?

brrr

So cold this morning. Currently 12 with gusts, feels like 2.

2.

2 ????

Aye Carumba!

Time to put on all my layers.

Good thing I’ve got the first phase done in the guard shack insulation project. I’ve got the whole thing lined with 2 layers of 1/4” foam board, sealing most of the air leaks and giving me an insulative value of R-2. Wow, R-2. Still, the little shed heats up in half the time now, so by the time my hot water bottle gives out it ought to be bearable.

And I found my staple gun in the garage in my range bag, so I can start tacking up the Reflectix thermal barrier stuff. It’s like bubble wrap mated to those mylar rescue space blankets. So, woo hoo, that ought to do it but good.

Wish I could eat a big hearty breakfast, but I’ve got to go back to the doctor’s again this morning, so I think I’m not supposed to eat if they want to do that glucose test thing again. I’m not even sure why I’m going; I just have the appointment so I do as I’m told.

Eagles Guitarist Glenn Frey Dead

Glenn Frey, 67

image

… the cause of death was a combination of complications from rheumatoid arthritis, acute ulcerative colitis, and pneumonia.

Frey had been battling intestinal issues for months and had surgery in November. We’re told in the last few days his condition took a turn for the worse. He died in New York City.

Glenn also got into acting, snagging a recurring role on “Miami Vice.”

He reunited with the Eagles in ‘94 for their monster Hell Freezes Over tour and recorded music till the end, releasing what would be his fifth and final solo LP, “After Hours,” in 2012.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer had been fighting intestinal issues for awhile but his condition relapsed before the holidays, forcing the Eagles to pull out of their Kennedy Center Honors appearance in December. At the time, the band said he needed major surgery that would require a lengthy recovery.

Don Henley said, “He was like a brother to me; we were family, and like most families, there was some dysfunction. But the bond we forged 45 years ago was never broken.”

Glenn Lewis Frey (pronounced Fry; born November 6, 1948) is an American musician, singer, songwriter, and actor, best known as a founding member of the Eagles. Frey formed the Eagles after he met drummer Don Henley in 1970 and the two eventually joined Linda Ronstadt’s backup band for her summer tour. The Eagles formed in 1971 and released their debut album in 1972. Glenn Frey played guitar with the Eagles as well as piano and keyboards, and shared lead vocals with Don Henley. The Eagles broke up in 1980 after becoming one of the most successful bands of all time. Frey sang lead vocals on many Eagles hits such as “Take It Easy”, “Peaceful Easy Feeling”, “Tequila Sunrise”, “Already Gone”, “Lyin’ Eyes”, “New Kid in Town”, and “Heartache Tonight”. After the breakup of the Eagles in 1980, Frey embarked on a successful solo career. He released his debut album in 1982 and went on to record Top 40 hits “The One You Love”, “Smuggler’s Blues”, “Sexy Girl”, “The Heat Is On”, and “You Belong to the City”.

Please Let There Be More To This Story

Kerry Gave Our Riverines To Iranian Navy?




First came the fact that President Barack Obama refused to address the arrest of 10 of our sailors by the Iranian military after their boats had mechanical trouble at sea. Then came news that the Obama administration had offered the Iranians an apology for the release of the sailors.

Now comes the disturbing revelation, apparently delivered by Defense Secretary Ashton Carter, that the Obama administration tipped off the Iranians that our soldiers were lost at sea and requested their aid.

The news came from Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, during an interview on TheBlaze’s Dana Loesch shortly after Iran’s arrest of the sailors had come to light.

“I understand that (Secretary of State) John Kerry has indicated, look, when he got word, he and Ash Carter called the Iranians to help take care of our Navy guys, because they had some mechanical problems,” Gohmert said.

There’s a bit more at the link, but the main point is here above: the Obama regime shopped our sailors to the Iranians instead of following standard military protocol. They engineered their own slap in the face.

Now, why on Earth would they do that? What’s the point? Where’s the benefit?

Unless ... just maybe ... something physical had to be passed from one boat to the other, while the world’s attention was focused on the other part of the story, and here’s the video? This is what magicians call the prestige. The rest of us call it smoke and mirrors.

I don’t like being played for a fool, but at least if there was some kind of positive Secret Squirrel shit going on, it could explain a lot. OTOH, a traitor with enough power to create a minor international scene like this could pass across a bag full of missile tech, a box full of nuclear detonators, a drum full of tritium, a slug of plutonium, whatever, at the same time. And all we’d ever see is sailors on their knees. And I do mean create ... what do you think the odds are that two exquisitely maintained naval craft would break down at the same time??

sex attacks by scumugees continues across europe

Nothing new and nobody expected anything to get any better.

The deadly virus that infects Europe and most especially Germany, in the form of migrants impersonating humans, have again tried to molest some German girls, three males under 15 arrested.
The Germans, not being as demanding or as rough as once upon a time, have allowed the little shit sub human scum to live.  All they’ve done is arrest them. Oh, that’ll put the frightners onem ok.

There have been angry demonstrations in many German cities and oh btw .... Denmark also is reporting (for the first time) sexual assaults by scumugees.

Left wing press has labeled German patriots frightened for their country and future, as thugs and gangsters.  See if you find any of those in the video here. Not to say there aren’t any.  But even someone who might be at other times, can still have honest feelings for his or her country. They are not all of them criminals just for being anti migrant.

The deputy mayor in Calais, France has issued a statement requesting Brit govt. take away freedom of anarchists and other far left wingers, to travel to France, who have moved into Calais under cover of helping migrants circumvent the laws of France and Britain.
The so called volunteers are with the vermin 24/7, teaching and organizing them on ways to sneak into Britain.
I heard the deputy mayor for myself last night, but no way to record and share.  The situation there is very bad.
Refugees are refusing to be finger printed and are being taught how to avoid when they are able.

As for Germany .... some right wing demonstrations and a few beatings of migrants isn’t enough. 
I want to see the modern day equivalent of Crystal Night and The Night of the long knives.  Because in this particular case at this point in time, that is what it would take to set things right.  That’s what it will take to save the country.  Anything less is half measure and meaningless.

To give just one example of the sort of mindless left wing thinking.
Truckers going thru Calais have had their vehicles damaged by rocks, trucks beaten with iron bars, migrants demanding not just passage to England but many are demanding money.  So drivers have rightly complained and the reply from one white demented Brit lady who left husband and children to go to France to, “help the poor refugees”, suggested to the drivers, that if they didn’t like their jobs, go “find employment elsewhere”.

German leisure centre becomes the first to ban all migrants after a schoolgirl was sexually assaulted in a public swimming pool by Syrian teenagers

Three Syrian teenagers arrested in Munich for attack on girls at public pool
The three boys, all aged under 15, circled the two girls then groped them
Leisure centre in Bornheim has now barred all migrants as a precaution
It comes as concerns grow over the New Year mass assaults in Cologne

By Simon Tomlinson for MailOnline

A German leisure centre has become the first in the country to ban all migrants after a schoolgirl was sexually assaulted in a public swimming pool by Syrian teenagers.

Three Syrian boys were arrested earlier this month over the attack at a leisure centre in Munich as the country grapples with growing concerns about sex crimes perpetrated by asylum seekers.

In response to growing concerns, a leisure centre in Bornheim, North Rhine-Westphalia, has now barred all migrants.

The ban also follows an attack by an 18-year-old refugee on a 54-year-old woman in Bornheim, where he had grabbed her by the private parts and tried to kiss her.

The victim was only rescued from a further attack by a couple who heard her screams and ran to help. The teenager was arrested a short while later.

Bornheim social affairs councillor and deputy mayor Markus Schnapka said the move followed an emergency meeting of locals where the swimming pool ban was announced.

He said: ‘At the public meeting, I made it quite clear that it was an extremely difficult decision and it’s clear that many innocent refugees are also affected by this.’

When the girl’s sister, 14, tried to make them stop, she too was groped by the trio of teenagers, who were all aged under 15.

The girls managed to flee and raise the alarm with the lifeguard at the swimming pool, who called police.

Because the asylum seekers were only 15, they were not remanded in custody and will be prosecuted under juvenile law.

The main offender’s two friends were arrested for assault for taking part in the attack. 

It comes after more than three hundred women reported being sexually assaulted by groups of mostly Arab or North African men in Cologne during New Year celebrations.

Hundreds of criminal complaints have been filed by police, with about 45 per cent involving allegations of sexual offences, and most of the suspects identified so far are foreign nationals.

The attack have been seized by right-wing groups as evidence that chancellor Angela Merkel’s open door policy is a failure.

HERE FOR VIDEO

And just so ya know.  The Germans aren’t a bunch of lone rangers either.

The three youngsters from Afghanistan, aged 14, 15 and 16, as well as a Syria boy aged 16, have all been suspended after the school headmistress made a complaint to police.

According to Kronen Zeitung, the girls at Schlossstrasse Middle School were repeatedly groped but the final straw came when there was an attack so severe it forced action.

Police said the allegations dated back to last November and involved verbal abuse and suggestive comments, as well as physical violence and assaults during which the girls were touched.

t is alleged the 14-year-old victim was often hit by the 15-year-old boy, including an incident where she was hit so badly from behind that she smashed her head onto a desk.

She was attacked again Wednesday morning by the same boy smashing her against a locker so hard that the police were called.

They took the victim and the accused to the station where the full story then came out. After hearing of her ordeal, police then expanded the investigation.

Local education officials in the city played down the incident however, saying it was nothing more than a few slaps in the corridor and a few obscene comments that were speedily dealt with.

The three asylum seekers as well as the fourth boy, who has already been given asylum, have been suspended.

It comes as the fallout from waves of sex attacks, many of which were perpetrated by migrants, continues across Continental Europe.

Just Sickening

I finally got around to watching the Iranian video of our captured (and now releases)  Swift boat  Riverine Command Boats.

Granted, these are not battleships. They’re only about 50 feet long, an “up-armored" version of the Swedish CB-90.

image

Neat little boat. 43 knots or faster, several heavy and medium machine guns, grenade launcher, etc. Pretty much a modern PT boat, minus the torpedoes. For now.

Surrendered without a fight to the Iranians, who were driving a bass boat. Seriously, pretty much. Half the size, a tenth the mass, a third of the crew size, not even close to a fifth of the firepower ...

image

All it takes to capture US Navy vessels these days. A bass boat and an AK.

image

Not 100% sure if this is a true story or not, but I hear that the Iranians have a new secret weapon that will let them capture our aircraft carriers and any really large cruisers or destroyers in the area.

image

Word is that the mullahs are assembling fleets of these in canvas bags ready for rapid air drop deployment.

At this point, even Maxwell Smart is embarrassed. *

Out Punned

It’s not that often when another punster can get the drop on me. But when it does, I’ll acknowledge it. Here’s my hat tip to the masters of the game.



News story:
US NAVY SWIFTBOATS CAPTURED BY IRAN, 10 SAILORS TAKEN PRISONER

The cover of today’s NY Post:

image

Perfection.

Here’s the story, in case you’re not fully aware of this latest bit of international humiliation due to our sissy-pants wearing ninny of a pResident

Iran released video on Wednesday of 10 American sailors who were detained by Iran overnight aboard their two US Navy patrol boats in the Gulf.

Some of the nine men and one woman can be seen in the video on their knees with their hands behind their heads. Another video shows the sailors seated on traditional rugs and being served a meal.

Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps said it had freed the sailors after determining they had entered Iranian territorial waters by mistake. The sailors had been detained aboard two US Navy patrol boats in the Gulf on Tuesday.

Their release brought a swift end to an incident that had rattled nerves days ahead of the expected implementation of a landmark nuclear accord between Tehran and world powers.

Elsewhere, why miss the opportunity to give Obama and the USA a firm spanking?

Iran’s army chief said on Wednesday the seizure of two U.S. navy boats and their 10 sailors should be a lesson to members the U.S. Congress trying to impose new sanctions on Tehran.

“This incident in the Persian Gulf, which probably will not be the American forces’ last mistake in the region, should be a lesson to troublemakers in the U.S. Congress,” Major General Hassan Firouzabadi, head of Iran’s armed forces, was quoted as saying by Tasnim news agency.

trying to thaw

Brrr. Back in the house now, trying to thaw out.

Worked 5 hours outside this morning. It was 16° when I started; maybe it’s worked it’s way up to freezing by now. A couple hours in the guard shack, followed by a few hours making up buckets of ice melt and taking them around to the units. Just in time for the snow to get here, maybe.

Oooh, I got to drive the big diesel truck today. Torque!

Cold. Can’t wait until my new super duty thermal underwear gets here from Duluth. I ordered it on the 4th, and it was supposed to ship that day 2nd day delivery.  With luck, that package will get here tonight. I hate when mail orders get messed up. To their credit, after several emails back and forth, they waived the shipping charges entirely. But I want my cold weather gear.  Because it’s cold.

Flannel lined jeans. I want to look into that. But not at $79 a pair. $40, Ok.
