State Department writes anti-leak memo, which promptly leaks

The State Department legal office prepared a four-page memo for Secretary of State Rex Tillerson warning of the dangers of leaking by State Department employees. It promptly leaked, to me. That’s only the latest sign that the relationship between the Trump administration political appointees and the State Department professional workforce is still very much a work in progress.

Hope it was worth it. You all got a slightly different version.*

Help Us Find a Cure


While this a serious situation, it reminded me of something:

rare disease day.png

Fakinsons, malingering and illnesses of convenience are all on the rise. Millions of people suffer (or enjoy) diseases which seem to defy actual medical science. For years on end, they are nearly crippled by symptoms which force them to rely on spouses to perform routine tasks, like walking the dogs or mailing unintentionally humorous court pleadings. Some of the symptoms include impulsiveness, poor hygiene and obsessive behavior. Later, the spouses can no longer help, these poor souls are forced to buy cars, drink liquor and carry on as if they had never been ill.

Help us, won’t you, to stamp out the phony maladies and the fakers? 

Then, medical science can find resources to investigate real, actual illnesses. 

You Could Write “Nunna yer Damned Bidness” on the Whole Thing


Or, you could write “Get a warrant.” 

The Rutherford Institute — which also tracks violence by police — is keeping an eye on Census Bureau. Like all federal agencies, it seems to have mission creep.

Unlike the traditional census, which is limited to a simple head count every ten years for the purpose of establishing representation in Congress, the ACS is sent on an ongoing basis to about 3 million homes every year at a reported cost of hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars. Individuals who receive the ACS must complete it or be subject to potentially significant monetary penalties. At 28 pages (with an additional 16-page instruction packet), the ACS contains some of the most detailed and intrusive questions ever put forth in a census questionnaire. These concern matters that the government simply has no business knowing, including questions relating to respondents’ bathing habits, home utility costs, fertility, marital history, work commute, mortgage, and health insurance, among others. As Rutherford Institute attorneys point out, the real danger with the ACS is in not knowing why the information is needed, how it will be used by the government or with whom it will be shared.

There might actually be great reasons for the government to compile data on communities — like to determine where resources should go, or what programs are successful. We really should look at the War on Poverty, and the related War on Drugs, as well as other programs.

On the other hand, get off my lawn. Data-based lawn, I mean.

Bravado: You’re Doing it Wrong


Consider the thoughts of Bill Schmalfeldt, an individual who has gone out of his way to soil his own reputation and attempts to get people fired.  

know me.png

Taking the ‘lame attempt’ Tweet at face value, I assume someone has informed Mr. Schmalfeldt’s employer of Peace Orders, previous urine-related writings, and some other whatnot. I’m on record as discouraging such things, but…turnabout is fair play. Bill’s public statements have made it clear that he has done the same.

I’m focused upon the statement “This is my town, people know me.”

It reminds me a bit of the “fed to fed” Tweet of a few years back in which Schmalfeldt assumed he’s have some common ground with a postal inspector, since he was once a writer for the federal government. The details are fading in my memory, but the tone was much the same. I know the special handshake. No pun intended.

A reminder: Knowing Bill Schmalfeldt is exactly the opposite of liking Bill Schmalfeldt. To know him is to loath him.

Bill Schmalfeldt should take no comfort that the anonymous, pseudonymous or non-Quad Cities individuals who are contacting his employer are strangers, while Bill is known to his employers. After a while, Bill’s personality will be known to his employers. Even without information from the Lickspittles, his employers will come to certain conclusions about him. Management might Google Bill Schmalfeldt. A few listeners might, too. This is a natural process, and one reason why folks generally avoid making strikingly odd statements in public.

As for the second Tweet at the top of this post, involving prosecution: Radio stations have notoriously weak prosecutorial powers. At one time, the phone police were fearsome, as explained by Dr. Johnny Fever:

My copy of the Communications Act of 1932 and its amendments show no actual police powers afforded to radio stations.

I would encourage those who dislike Bill Schmalfeldt to act within legal boundaries. Please don’t put yourselves in jeopardy by exaggerating, overstating or becoming a pest. 

Take the lead of the most wise Stacy McCain:

The best way to discredit Bill Schmalfeldt is to quote Bill Schmalfeldt. — RS McCain

Can We Just Dial it Back Just a Bit?


Or as Sgt. Hulka said,”Lighten up, Francis.”

So now we have to keep an eye on anarchists, Islamists, Antifa and the black bloc.

Sidney Morning Herald:

Antifa, or anti-fascists, are a loose collection of socialists and anarchists, anti-racists and small-l liberals. 

Apparently they’re anti-racist, which I figure is good, but they’re pro-intimidation and violence. 

From a  Washington Post story on the so-called black bloc protesters at Berkeley:

To be sure, the black bloc attackers don’t make prosecution simple. As the article notes, the term “black bloc” was first used to describe tight wedges of black-clad protesters in helmets and masks who appeared in street demonstrations in Germany in the 1970s, sometimes confounding efforts to single out, identify and prosecute individuals. But it is not clear to me how eager UC Berkeley is to apprehend those responsible for the attack.

Germany became Nazi Germany when the Sturmabteilung successfully intimidated others with violence.  With so many young people convinced they are right, and that violence is acceptable in the face of so-called fascism, (Trumpism, really) we need to keep an eye out for the new brownshirts. Hint: they are not operating from the ‘right.’  

Stay safe.

I Don’t Deny That I Tried to Buy a Copy of Confessions of an Internet Troll


 

Here’s the book, and the status on Amazon UK. On the US version of Amazon, there are no valid ‘buying options’ either. Please notice the box, and the implications.

NOT BUY.png

The book was ‘published’ (okay…cut and pasted)  by Bill Schmalfeldt. It contained material which was not his own. That’s his silhouette on the cover. It was a bald-faced attempt to make Paul Krendler sue — which would have required the real Paul Krendler to stand up. It’s a long story, but Paul has had some nasty things to say about Bill and Bill really, really wants to identify him.

I don’t deny trying to buy this book, and also trying to buy It’s All in My Head, an audio book by Bill.

It's All In My Head

I also don’t deny being the real killer of Ron Goldman and Nicole Simpson, or being a member of the Manson Family, as well as the original Four Tops.

Post-svenska Sverige


Post-Swedish Sweden

Zero Hedge:

A Swedish police officer recently offered up a little more truth than people are used to when he posted an epic rant on Facebook about immigrant crimes plaguing his police department and his country.  In the beginning of the post, the police officer said that he was “so fucking tired” and warned that “what I will write here below, is not politically correct.”  With that warning, below is brief taste of what followed courtesy of RT:

  

“Here we go; this is what I’ve handled from Monday-Friday this week: rape, rape, robbery, aggravated assault, rape-assault and rape, extortion, blackmail, assault, violence against police, threats to police, drug crime, drugs, crime, felony, attempted murder, rape again, extortion again and ill-treatment.”

“Suspected perpetrators; Ali Mohammed, Mahmod, Mohammed, Mohammed Ali, again, again, again. Christopher… what, is it true? Yes, a Swedish name snuck in on the edges of a drug crime. Mohammed, Mahmod Ali, again and again.”

“Countries representing all the crimes this week: Iraq, Iraq, Turkey, Syria, Afghanistan, Somalia, Somalia, Syria again, Somalia, unknown, unknown country, Sweden. Half of the suspects, we can’t be sure because they don’t have any valid papers. Which in itself usually means that they’re lying about their nationality and identity.”

An amazing response to the howls of clowns who want the police officer’s head:

National Police Commissioner Dan Eliasson said that it was important to distinguish what an officer does in the line of duty and outside of it.

“When he acts in his professional capacity, he should be extremely careful with issues of ethnicity. If he wants to talk about the problems of crime among immigrants in his spare time, he has freedom of expression like any other,” he told P4 Extra radio, adding that he knows Springare as a “very good person.”

We really are going to miss some of these countries when they’re gone.
