The one, the only



Yup, Halper. Soon To Be Hamburger.

American-born University of Cambridge professor Stefan Halper has been identified as an FBI informant in Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign, multiple news outlets reported Saturday.

The 73-year-old academic reportedly has deep ties to American and British intelligence, having served in the Nixon, Ford and Reagan administrations, the New York Post reported.

President Trump tweeted Friday that confirmation of an FBI plant in his campaign would become the nation’s “all time biggest political scandal.”

Reports are there was indeed at least one FBI representative implanted, for political purposes, into my campaign for president. It took place very early on, and long before the phony Russia Hoax became a “hot” Fake News story. If true - all time biggest political scandal!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 18, 2018

The New York Times and Washington Post reportedly have known of Halper’s identity for weeks, but chose not to reveal his name. Then on Thursday, the Daily Caller named Halper in the opening paragraph of its report.

The Washington Post said it received warnings from U.S. officials that revealing Halper’s identity posed a security risk.  Meanwhile, reports vary on when the FBI tapped Halper to snoop on the Trump campaign.

The New York Times reported in December that during “a night of heavy drinking at an upscale London bar in May 2016,” Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos had disclosed to an Australian diplomat the Russians had dirt on the Clinton campaign. The Australians then tipped off the FBI, prompting the agency to launch “Crossfire Hurricane” on July 31, 2016.

But Harper met with Page in early July that summer, contradicting the FBI’s claims of when the operation began, while Halper met Carter Page at a British symposium and remained in contact for more than a year.
Sources close to Papadopoulos now say Harper was working for an intelligence agency.

By May 2017, the “Cross[fire] Hurricane” operation had melded with Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.

So what we have is the FBI inserting a spy into the opposing political party’s campaign to ascertain and counteract the threat that they may have had dirt on Hillary, the Dem’s pre-selected candidate, since their official nomination didn’t occur until their convention that started July 25, 2106.  And naturally the FBI is going to stand by a date of convenience, which is almost guaranteed to be a fake. You can’t trust them at all anymore. CYA 24-7, and at this point pushing the spy-by date back is about the only cover they have left.

And don’t forget that the “dirt” that Papadopoulus thought he had was a false flag set up by the Dems themselves, via the cutout Joseph Misfud, a purported member of the Clinton Foundation. Who is now missing and has been for ages. Arkancide like Seth Rich? Dirty dirty politics, and yes, this is a massive scandal, with “a cast of thousands”, all across the Executive branch, DOJ and the State Dept.

In the end, it might turn out that the FBI/DOJ were played by their political bosses, patsies, but like the faithful Democrat running dogs they are, they swung into action and did their best, laws be damned.  Onions have fewer layers than this thing.



The Proles Don’t Notice So Why Bother?

Every year I find myself trying to analyze the prize money payouts for whatever bowling league I’m on. Not that I’m objecting to whatever parse was used, but I’d just like to know how it was done. Being Mr. Math and Mr. Computer Guy, I’ve got a whole slew of spreadsheets I’ve developed over the years, and at this point I can generate or closely estimate prize payouts just from the curve of the graph. Big curve at the top: winners get comparatively more; straight line with a small slope: everybody gets about the same with only a small increase per position. Downwards curve at the far end: the losers are getting screwed. And so on.

It used to be that there was a vote in the leagues early on in the season. Here’s 2 or 3 payout plans, talk it over with your buddies and each team votes for one. That turned out to be too complicated when you had people joining late, teams quitting, and so forth. So they’re not doing that any more. It used to be, at least on some leagues, that the prize amounts, either per team or per person, were announced with the team name of the various places. They’re not doing that any more either. And that kind of thing makes me a tad bit concerned.

At prize night, I noticed that half the league didn’t even show up. And when it was over, I noticed only 1 person had a quiet question about the results (placement, payout, prizes, I don’t know). So the truth is, it doesn’t matter. NOBODY CARES. As long as they get something in their envelope, and somebody else does all the work, that’s good enough for them.  The winning team - which happens to include all the perennial officers, who also happen to be lifetime employees of the bowling alley (or their family), who also win nearly every year - could be pocketing a wad and nobody would ever know. I really don’t think they are, because at Cheap League there simply isn’t much money in the prize fund to begin with, but the complete lack of transparency is a bit disquieting to me.

And this is how government corruption sets in. Some group of people gets the job of dealing with the money, and nobody ever bothers to ask about it or show the slightest interest. Bowling league is about as tiny as government gets. The next step up is the board of a condo association. School boards, town councils, county government, state, then federal. The more people in each group, the less visible and personally accountable they become. And if nobody ever demands an accounting, transparency, or even a meaningful honest explanation of what they’re doing and how they’re spending, then things can get out of control right quick.

Keep your eye on your “leaders” and hold their toes to the fire over every dollar. Every day. Or they will screw you over sooner or later. Guaranteed.




FBI’s Spy Inside Trump Campaign Was Stefan Halper?

Crossfire Hurricane. Might just start blowing the other way.


Another vile wet and cold day. We’ve got the heat on. It’s the 19th of May and it’s 46°F outside. Thanks a lot Al Gore.


We had our end of season meeting for bowling league, to “elect” the same bunch of people who run things to do the job again next year. And also to hand out the prizes and money. I really have no idea what benefit any of us get from our $20 annual membership in the USBC: not a single person in the entire league got any kind of award for anything. They used to give out patches, key fobs, or stickers to people for annual accomplishments like throwing a 250 game, rolling a 600 or 700 series, etc. Back in the long ago, when it was the ABC not the USBC, there were even awards for making some of the more difficult spares and things. No more. USBC used to mail out a monthly magazine. No more. Beats me what we get for our dues. Nada. Whatevs. So our team did actually fight our way up to 8th place, which got us exactly $100 in prize money. Each! So now I have a spanking new $100 bill in my pocket, and when I get tired of looking at it I’ll take it to the bank and exchange it for real money. Oh, and the Mrs. got awarded a coffee mug for throwing a 200 game. Sexism abounds; no mug for me even though I threw 2 dozen 200+ games this season. No, for guys the standard is 250, and I missed that score by a small amount several times.  Oh well.


Get Your Blood Boiling, Again

Another one of those refresh your memory essays that points out in detail just how dirty the DNC, Clintons, Obama, DOJ, FBI, NSA, courts, and media were and still are in relation to Trump and the last presidential campaign. 1000 times worse than Watergate, and most of the dirty players are still employed. While we may have dodged the socialist coupe bullet by a nanometer, a huge tsunami of the leftist apparatchik cabal is still in place. We need to drain the swamp, burn the mud, salt the ground, and dig deep to pull out all the roots and then roast every last hidden seed.

But for today, here’s Andrew McCarthy at The National Review, writing In Politicized Justice, Desperate Times Call for Disparate Measures. That’s a pretty good pun, but the dark truth behind it is really upsetting to read about. I had to stop twice while reading his essay, walk away and sound off in indignation, before making it all the way through. And he is just touching, lightly, the very tip of the iceberg; all he’s focusing on in this essay was the actual disparate measures; the light touch of the loving velvet glove on the one hand, and the wanton use of the spiked mace held in the iron gauntlet on the other. Not what you or I would ever think of as equal application of the law.

As the 2016 race heated up, the Clinton campaign zealously fought the notion that Hillary was the subject of a criminal investigation — which is not an easy thing to do when you’re the subject of a criminal investigation. It was just a “security referral,” the campaign insisted to the New York Times (which dutifully “corrected” its originally correct reporting on the case).

In what I’m sure was a total coincidence, Attorney General Loretta Lynch, who stood a very good chance of keeping her coveted job in a Hillary Clinton administration, gave FBI Director Comey an order: In his public statements and testimony, he was instructed to refer to the Clinton emails probe as a “matter,” not an investigation — otherwise, what might people think the Federal Bureau of Investigation was up to? This may have been an improper, politically motivated attempt to influence an FBI criminal probe, but on this occasion, there were no leaks to the New York Times about it; Comey complied, calculating that Lynch’s politicization of the, er, “matter” was not “a hill worth dying on.”

The director’s sympathetic savvy was again on display in the writing of his speech exonerating Mrs. Clinton. There was, of course, the delicate matter of President Obama’s knowing exchanges of sensitive email via Clinton’s server. The initial draft’s reference to “the President” was soon watered down to “a senior government official.” In the end, it was dropped altogether — purging any reference to Obama’s involvement. And of course, the director’s description of Clinton’s conduct as “grossly negligent” was amended to “extremely careless” because gross negligence is the mental state required for conviction in the Espionage Act — after all, this was this was supposed to be an exoneration statement, not an indictment.

The director took a markedly different tack in the Trump–Russia investigation.

Yes, they should all be in jail awaiting conviction and summary execution. These “justice” agencies need to be purged and purified by the scourge in the most medieval way possible. As for the Dems and the Deep Staters, their indictments and punishments should be far worse. And if more than half the country wasn’t a bunch of benighted blinkered socialist-fascist leaning morons, if they had even a smidgen of understanding of what America is supposed to be, that would be the case. It would be Villagers With Pitchforks and Torches, 24-7. But that won’t happen.

IMO, not a single change will be made, and not one of these criminal statists will ever be held accountable. The federal status quo is immovable. Oh please, even after the housing bubble was dissected and analyzed to the atomic level, our government wouldn’t even get rid of Frank-Dodd. There is no Change, never will be, and that’s the only thing you can Believe In. Now Move On, and let’s go Forward. Comrades.



Maybe we should just ban schools

Santa Fe Texas: Student Shooter Kills At Least 8, Bombs Found On And Off Campus

UPDATE: psycho punk ass jerk identified, bombs found, school’s resources officer shot

The suspect accused of unleashing a hail of bullets inside one of his classes early Friday morning that left up to 10 people dead has been identified, reports stated.

Dimitrios Pagourtzis, 17, was identified as the person in custody in connection to the shooting at Santa Fe High School, The Associated Press reported.

Explosive devices were found at the school, authorities said. The suspected shooter was taken into police custody and a second suspect has been detained. The suspect in custody and the suspect detained for further questioning were both students.

Police officers responded to Santa Fe High School around 8 a.m. CDT following reports that a shooter opened fire inside.

The Santa Fe Police Department confirmed explosive devices were found at the campus of the high school and the “surrounding areas adjacent to the school.” The school has been evacuated and the campus was cleared, the Santa Fe Police Department said.

Retired police officer John Barnes, working as the school’s resource officer, was shot in the incident, Fox News has learned.

Governor Greg Abbott confirmed Pagourtzis used a shotgun and .38 revolver that belonged to his father.

Investigators also found information online and Pagourtzis’ personal belongings that shed light on his state of mind.

“We also know information already that the shooter has information contained in his journal and cellphone that he said that not only did he want to commit the shooting, but he wanted to commit suicide after the shooting. As you probably know, he gave himself up and admitted at the time that he didn’t have the courage to commit the suicide that he wanted to take his own life earlier,” said Abbott.
The school district and police later confirmed that authorities found suspicious devices in and around the campus. “There have been explosive devices found in the high school and surrounding area adjacent to the high school,” Braun said Friday morning. “Community members should be on the lookout for any suspicious items.”

Law enforcement sources told CBS News that the devices included pressure cookers and pipe bombs.


SANTA FE, Texas – Federal and county officials tell KHOU 11 News multiple students were killed and an officer was wounded when a shooter opened fire inside Santa Fe High School. The school is located about 30 miles southeast of Houston.

Multiple sources at the scene tell us there are least eight to ten people dead. The exact number of those injured is unknown.  Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez confirms one suspect is in custody. A second person has been detained.

“I’m told they’re both students,” said Gonzalez. “One was identified as the suspect and another was detained, for what reason I don’t know.”

The main suspect is said to be 17 years old. His name has not yet been formally released.

The gunfire was first reported at about 7:40 a.m. Friday. Witnesses said at least one suspect came into the school and opened fire in an art class. Some students also said the shooter was throwing explosives into a classroom.

Two students say their friend saw a kid with a gun and pulled a fire alarm as they fled the campus during the shooting. A teacher also pulled the fire alarm, witnesses said.

‘Everybody yelling ‘run, go, as fast as you can’ | Santa Fe student describes shooting

As of 10 a.m. law enforcement was still sweeping the campus for the possibility of explosive devices, a threat they said they were taking “very seriously.” They are also looking for other potential victims or students hiding in fear.

By 11 a.m. authorities were at another scene, about two miles from the school, where authorities say they were investigating the possibility of explosive devices inside a mobile home.

Here we go again. It’s a terrible, horrible thing, and it keeps happening. I don’t want to be blase or cynical, and I do NOT accept this as the “new normal”. But there do seem to be an awful lot of deranged people out there. It isn’t the gun’s fault, or even the bomb’s. And no new crop of laws is going to do a thing to stop it. Period. The problem comes from the way we are raising and teaching our children. Maybe they need more risk, more responsibility, more freedom, more something. Or less indoctrination. Something. Because far too many of them seem to lose their marbles at the drop of a hat, either seeking to ban “hate” speech, run off to their safe spaces, or just grab a weapon and start killing people in bulk. That’s seriously messed up, from one extreme to the other.

And of course, here come the idiots, from both sides of the aisle, in person, on TV, and on social media.

Hot Air is live blogging it all


A Snowflake Challenge

Now, This Is Reading

With nothing much to do in the guard shack in the mornings, I’m working my way through Herman Melville’s Moby Dick. I’ve read the book a few times before in my life, but I haven’t browsed those pages in far more than a decade. The book was published in 1851, at the height of the literary period known as the American Renaissance, which ran from around 1820 to 1890. It was also written at the height of the period of Christian fervor known as the Second Great Awakening. And to throw in another complicating influence, Moby Dick came about at the crest of the Romantic Era, when a poetic writing style of vague allusion to biblical and classic Greek and Roman mythology was the norm. Not all that many people could read in those days, for reading meant education, and the educated people knew their scripture and the classics inside and out. Plus everyone wrote and spoke like Yoda, and in their pre-electric, pre-industrial world the pace of life was rather slow, and the written word was one to be both savored and revered.

All of which means that the whole book is written in Old, but not Really Old. Nearly every paragraph makes you stop and think; firstly, to try and understand what you just read. Secondly, to understand why. Many of his run-on sentences are real head scratchers, not just for the oblique references, but the structure, and even the reason for writing them in the first place. Sure, it’s an action tale, but Melville spends an inordinate amount of time getting inside each character’s head, spending vast amounts of ink trying to explain their motivations.

It has it’s lighter moments, as when he refers to Adam and Eve as “the original orchard thieves”. And it is nearly impossible to avoid the allegory that the book seems to be saturated with. And it is the best example of what used to be called a “boy’s story”, full of blood and death, privation, malaise, and moral quandary. In other words, and adventure tale.

And the whole book is about sailing around the world with a madman and a diverse crew of crazy men, while mercilessly killing as many of a protected species as possible, with all the violent and deadly imagery in detail. With plenty of racist stereotyping to boot. So this has to be one of the better snowflake triggers out there. So I’m putting it out there as a challenge to all the Triggly-Poofs, to read this tome and a) not need multiple trips to your safe space or literature bonfire, and b) actually understand, in depth, what the author is saying. I dare you snowflakes, and I double dare you to complete the task and accept that this is one of the all time literary masterpieces to boot.

The “b)” part is tough enough for the rest of us ... here’s a quick example with a bit of explanation and scene setting ...

Ahab got a splinter from his first wooden leg, which is actually made from whale bone. He lost the leg when the white whale bit it off, and Ahab ascribes every bad thing in his life to that heinously anthropomorphized creature. Moby is the Devil with fins, and worse. Like I said, the temptations of allegory are irresistible.

Nor, at the time, had it failed to enter his monomaniac mind that all the anguish of that then present suffering was but the direct issue of a former woe; and he too plainly seemed to see that as the most poisonous reptile of the marsh perpetuates his kind as inevitably as the sweetest songster of the grove; so, equally with every felicity, all miserable events do naturally beget their like.
But be all this as it may; let the unseen, ambiguous synod in the air, or the vindictive princes and potentates of fire, have to do or not with earthly Ahab, yet, in this present matter of his leg, he took plain practical procedures; - he called the carpenter.

Wow, that is writing.



Hooray, we might see the sun and not have rain by Monday!!

Boo, it’s only Wednesday. grrrr ...


Meanwhile, Hawaii going BOOM.

I can’t do anything about the weather, so here’s a happy redhead. It’s not wet and windy where she is.



Line Squall !!!


Watches Issued: Widespread Damaging Wind Gusts Target the Northeast Tuesday After Monday’s Low-End Derecho Hit the Mid-Atlantic States

Derecho??? Where am I, Guatemala? We’re having a line squall, and that’s a perfectly accurate American nautical term that’s been around for centuries. Screw this diversity PC crap.

An hour ago it was 91°F, humid and oppressive. Typical NJ afternoon. OK, fine, time to run up to the grocery store. I’m halfway up the stairs to the parking lot and the outside lights come on. It got dark that fast. A real Cecile B. DeMille Moses moment. I don’t think the black clouds rolled in, they appeared as if by magic. Angry, dark, roiling magic. And as I’m driving the half mile to the store, the wind arrived. Trees suddenly swaying in the gale, car rocking. Got to the store, parked, and the rain began. Got my 6 or 7 things and hit the express checkout, got out to the car, and the rain arrived. So I drove back in a torrent. Guess I won’t need to get the car washed today after all.

Ok, home again, beer and food in the fridge. We haven’t lost our power yet, but it wouldn’t surprise me if we did. I’m expecting the storm to roll out as fast as it rolled in ... ruh roh, now we’ve got thunder. Lots. The condo isn’t shaking from it yet, so it could be worse. And there are no trees down. Yet. With any luck, it will end soon and I can cook up some burgers on the grill.

Drat, I forgot to get chips. Oh well, too bad.


Not much happening here. Doing some work in the gardens today. The world and national news is pretty much the same as it is every day.

Oh, in line with existing US policy of the past 22 years or so, President Trump moved our embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, their capital. The only President who had the guts to put action behind the act. Leftists pitched a fit, Israelis celebrated, the leftist MSM fretted and thought the fireworks were incoming artillery, and the paleoswinians rioted, tried to swarm the border, and got several dozen of themselves killed.Gee too bad. Too bad that it wasn’t 10,000 times as many.

And in national news, the pervert pedophile female teacher of the day ... some 27 year old hottie teacher, married, caught going down on a 13 year old boy student. THIRTEEN. During school. W. T. F??? Wouldn’t it just be easier to file for divorce and realize that teaching wasn’t the career path for you, missy? But. Oh. NO.  And at this point it looks like her husband is defending her. It was a “mistake”. Each of the 8 or more times. Riight. True love, that. Or a true sap. Beta. Cuck. Whatever; loser boy.

13. Crivens. I do my guard shack job in the mornings, and watch over the kids at the bus stop. The 13 year old boys are in 8th grade. They. Are. Children.

I have to go buy a bag of topsoil.

Actress Margot Kidder died yesterday, and author Tom Wolfe died today.



Tick. Tick. Tick. Boom.

STFS, your newest and least favorite acronym

SFTS stands for ”severe fever with thrombocytopenia syndrome”. It’s a hemorrhagic fever with up to a 30% morbidity rate. Which means it can kill nearly 1 in 3 people infected with it.

“Symptoms of the virus include fever, vomiting, diarrhea, multiple-organ failure, thrombocytopenia, low platelet count, low white blood cell count and elevated liver enzyme levels. Between 6 and 30 percent of people infected die from the virus, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports. “

And it can be carried by that East Asian “longhorn” tick that was discovered on Hannah the Icelandic sheep last fall, right here in Hunterdon. A sheep who had never left the country. And now state health officials have found that the ticks survived the winter. Wonderful.

But not to worry. Of the ticks tested, none are carrying the disease. Riiight, that makes me feel so much better. Not that they tested all of the thousands and thousands and thousands of ticks that were infesting that farm.

And now the little monsters are in Union County too. Which is interesting, since Union County does not share a border with Hunterdon County.

As if the tri-state’s tick problem wasn’t already bad enough: officials said an exotic species of the bloodsucker that mysteriously popped up in New Jersey last fall has survived the winter.

Longhorned ticks have been found in Hunterdon and Union counties this spring, months after New Jersey Department of Agriculture officials said the species native to east Asia was found latched onto a sheep at a farm. In the most recent sighting, the tick that had never before been found in America was in the wild, snacking on a white-tail deer.
“I would be surprised if it does not spread out of New Jersey quickly,” said James Lok, a professor of parisitology at the University of Pennsylvania....

The Agriculture Department said in a news release that the ticks are a serious pest to livestock, wildlife, pets and humans and can spread diseases to humans and animals. They’re particularly dangerous to cattle because they transmit a disease called Theileriosis, which can cause severe anemia or death.

Officials said it is not clear whether longhorned ticks could spread tickborne illnesses common to New Jersey. But Lok told “Today” there is evidence the species can transmit Lyme disease.

“(The longhorned tick has) got a pretty terrible track record in China, Japan and recently in New Zealand and Australia,” Lok said. “And it’s not a stretch to assume it would be able to transmit the related diseases in North America.”

Oh, and these ticks can live on just about any animal out in the woods, and they reproduce asexually, getting themselves pregnant and laying thousands of eggs.

Great. Now we’re Ground Zero for the next epidemic. I am so thrilled. Can we DDT spray the whole damn state please? Weekly??



A tiny turtle began to climb a tree very slowly.

Three hours later, it reached the top, climbed out onto an outside branch, jumped into the air waving its front legs, and crashed to the ground.

Saved by its shell, the tiny turtle started to climb the tree again.

Four hours later, it reached the top, climbed onto a branch, jumped into the air waving its front legs, and crashed to the ground.

Undaunted, the tiny turtle tried again.

This time it took five hours to climb to the top of the tree. Once there, it stumbled onto an outside branch, jumped into the air waving its front legs, and crashed to the ground.

As the tiny turtle dusted itself off for yet another laborious ascent of the tree, two birds were watching from above. 

The female bird turned to the male and said, “Darling, don’t you think it’s time we told him he’s adopted?”


Two dachshunds were chatting.

“I don’t get it”, said the first dog, “I’m in great shape but I’m always anxious.”

“Why not go see a psychiatrist then?”, asked the second.

“How can I?”, cried the first, “I’m not allowed on the couch.”

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.
