Never heard the term “spatchcocking” before. (It’s a gerund or present participle.)


Forget “Global Warming.” Forget “Climate Change.” Get ready for “Global Meltdown” and “Climate Collapse.” We’re dooooomed.

I rolled my eyes when I read the original story, but this commentary is funny. [NSFW, NSFK]


From the This Is Very Cool Department BUT:

During the U.S. campaign against al Qaida terrorists in Afghanistan, the U.S. government offered hefty bounties for al Qaida, Taliban, and other insurgent leaders. These bounties were highly publicized although rarely collected.

U.S. Central Command decided to toy with the terrorist commanders: Military and intelligence analysts drew up a list of high-value targets, followed by a public announcement that the bounty on a particular terrorist leader had been slashed  Word was whispered in the local markets that the man wasn’t worth the higher reward because he had been injured or been deemed incompetent.

According to Eric Schmitt and Thom Shanker of The New York Times, the “less-valuable leader” then wanted “to prove he was still important and worthy of the higher bounty. Even senior members of al Qaida’s global network had been suckered by the ruse and were picked up after they made themselves visible not long after the bounty on their heads was reduced.”

So why did the NYT expose a military PsyOps tactic, how did they find out about it, and why did USNI decide to echo it?

Dear Lady Twist” made it to No. 9 in 1962, and was perhaps the first ska song to hit the U.S. charts, unless you count “My Boy Lollipop.”

“My Boy Lollipop” 1956, 1964 & 1984. Song history here:

The original song, “My Girl Lollypop”, was written by Robert Spencer of the doo-wop group The Cadillacs. Notorious record company executive Morris Levy agreed to purchase the song from Spencer. Although not involved in writing the song, Levy and alleged gangster Johnny Roberts listed themselves as the song’s authors. In an effort to avoid sharing any royalties with Spencer, Levy removed Spencer’s name from the original writing credits. Levy even claimed that Robert Spencer was his pseudonym.

THIS democrat candidate for POTUS points out a truth.


Witness: “…during a class discussion, another student asked the girl if she could kill five people in the class, who would they be? In response, the girl allegedly pointed her finger pistol.”

The 12 year old was handcuffed and arrested, charged with a felony for possessing an unloaded index finger.

[Story here, with links. Meanwhile, two students who brought REAL guns to school in the same school district were merely reprimanded.]


From the “I Was Just Holding Them For A Friend” Department:

A 27-year-old Florida woman who’d built more than 24 pipe bombs was arrested Thursday, after her parents stumbled across the incendiary devices and called police.

[CORRECTIVE UPDATE: Apparently the story posted by The Federalist on 27 September 2019 (linked at top) is inaccurate. The US Intel Community accepts hearsay (info from second-hand sources) but won’t act on it unless they uncover first-hand corroboration. If there’s no corroboration, the hearsay is dismissed as such. In other words, the rules did not change, but their website and the reporting form did.]
